Improvement of Hip Pain After Total Hip Arthroplasty With Dry Needling as an Adjunct to Conventional Physiotherapy: A Case Series
While total hip arthroplasty (THA) is one of the most common and successful orthopedic surgeries, some patients may experience persistent, recurrent, or new hip pain despite successful THA. Dry needling (DN) is a common treatment for musculoskeletal pain, yet little data has been published on the use of DN on hip pain after THA.
Medial Pivot Designs Versus Conventional Bearing Types in Primary Total Knee Arthroplasty: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials
Medial pivot (MP) designs are growing in popularity. They provide increased sagittal plane stability and theoretically replicate some aspects of native joint kinematics, which may improve total knee arthroplasty outcomes.
Stretches and exercises to relieve SI joint pain
The sacroiliac (SI) joint connects the spine to the pelvis. People who have injured this joint may experience pain in the lower back, buttocks, and down the back of the thigh. Simple stretches and exercises may ease the pain and help people move around more comfortably.
What to know about shoulder arthritis

8 IT Band Stretches and Exercises to Help Relieve Outer Knee Pain
There’s nothing fun about that stabbing pain outside your knee caused by iliotibial band syndrome. The good news though? Doing IT band stretches and strengthening exercises can provide much-needed relief.
Glute force: Why big, strong bum muscles matter for your overall health
Forget about how they look; what about what they do? Why is having big, strong glutes important for your body to function well? These muscles work together with your brain to generate a lot of power to hold your body up as gravity tries to pull it down.
Meta-Analysis of Kinematic alignment Vs. Mechanical Alignment in Total Knee Arthroplasty
The purpose of this meta-analysis was to compare the efficacy and imaging parameters of kinematic alignment (KA) and mechanical alignment (MA) in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and to evaluate whether patients undergoing KA-TKA benefited more than those undergoing MA-TKA.
UCL repair with internal brace and decompression treats elbow instability
There has been a recent increase in ulnar collateral ligament injuries. These injuries typically occur in overhead athletes and baseball players, but can occur in athletes at all competition levels.
Treatment of neurogenic scapular winging: a systematic review on outcomes after non-surgical management and tendon transfer surgery.
Scapular winging is a rare condition of the shoulder girdle which presents challenging treatment decisions for clinicians. To inform clinical practice, clinicians need guidance on what the best treatment decision is for their patients and such recommendations should be based on the total evidence available.
Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression Versus Minimally Invasive Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion for Treatment of Low-Grade Lumbar Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Objective: To compare perioperative outcomes, radiographic parameters, and patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) between minimally invasive unilateral laminotomy with bilateral decompression (MIS-ULBD) versus MIS transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MIS-TLIF) for treatment of low-grade lumbar degenerative spondylolisthesis.
