 Shoulder Injuries

Knee Ligament Injuries:
ACL (Anterior cruciate ligament) is the most commonly injured ligament of the knee. The injury is common during sports. Twisting of the knee is a common cause of over-stretching or tearing the ACL. When the ACL is injured one may hear a popping sound and the leg may suddenly give out. Besides swelling and pain, walking may be painful and the knee will feel unstable. Minor tears of the anterior cruciate ligament may heal over time, but a torn ACL requires surgery. After surgery, recovery is prolonged and low impact exercises are recommended to strengthen the joint.
Arthroscopic Surgeries
In an arthroscopic examination, an orthopaedic surgeon makes a small incision in the patient's skin and then inserts pencil-sized instruments that contain a small lens and lighting system to magnify and illuminate the structures inside the joint. Light is transmitted through fiber optics to the end of the arthroscope that is inserted into the joint.
Shoulder Injuries
Athletes who play sports with a great deal of throwing, hitting, or swinging are very defenseless to bear wounds. Figuring out how to think about intense shoulder wounds is imperative, as is figuring out how to perceive the contrast between a shoulder injuries that may resolve with time and rest or one that requires careful intercession.
