  • Weight Change and Bone Health in Older Adults with Obesity

    Weight loss in older adults is accompanied by loss in bone mineral density (BMD) and an increased risk of bone fracture. A new study published in Obesity found that loss of hip BMD persists in the year following a weight loss intervention among older adults with obesity, regardless of whether they regain weight.

  • Meet Mako, The Robot Helping Doctors Perform Error-Free Surgeries

    This robotic assistant has helped with more than 300,000 operations and is transforming the way doctors perform joint replacement surgeries.

    In a demonstration lab at medical technology firm Stryker’s joint replacement division headquarters in Mahwah, New Jersey, a fake leg rests on an operating table. A technician stands at a computer while a nearby screen shows a 3D rendering of the prosthetic leg’s knee, each curve and indent of the joint accurate.

  • Why do Bones Fail?

    Osteoporosis is a widespread disease. Every third woman and every fifth man are affected by bone loss with advancing age. A frequent consequence of this is a fracture of the femoral neck—a painful injury that massively impairs the quality of life of those affected. Patients must reckon with long term loss of mobility. Long bed rest and the associated often poor general condition even lead to an increased mortality rate.

  • Pads to Prevent Hip Pointer Injury

    A hip pointer injury is an extremely painful, acute injury to the iliac crest of the pelvis. The injury causes bleeding into the abdominal muscles, which attach to the iliac crest. The bone and overlying muscle are often bruised, and the pain can be intense. Pain may be felt when walking, laughing, coughing, or even breathing deeply. Hip pointers generally occur in sports with a high risk of a direct impact on the iliac crest from either a collision or a hard fall. The sports most commonly associated with a hip pointer injury include football, hockey, lacrosse, soccer, and snowboarding.

  • Hip-Joint and Femoral Osteoplasty

    One cause of hip-joint pain is called femoroacetabular impingement(FAI). This condition is often thought to be an early precursor to hip-joint arthritis and is characterized by the formation of bone spurs that surround the ball and socket hip joint. One of the treatments for FAI is to remove the bone spurs that surround the hip joint, a procedure called an osteoplasty.

    Hip pain in athletes is a common cause of discomfort and can be a frustrating problem to treat. In the past, just about any hip pain symptom was attributed to a "muscle strain" type of injury.

  • How Physical Therapy Helped Me With Hip Surgery Recovery

    My name is Erin Sneed and I have been in the fitness industry for almost 10 years. I played sports all through high school and went on to play college soccer. While in college, I grew to love group fitness and began teaching classes at my college campus. I was extremely active and played pickup basketball, ran, taught workout classes, and trained on my own. In 2011, I was in the midst of my senior year of college and I began experiencing extreme hip pain. I shrugged it off and continued to workout daily, thinking I just needed to add more stretching to my routine. Little did I know I was running with a hip impingement and several labral tears which was putting the joint bone on bone and hip surgery recovery would be in my future.
