Radiological Imaging Is Standard of Diagnosing Lower Limb Stress Fractures

“Clinical Question: Stress fractures can be difficult to diagnose due to differential diagnoses and imaging technologies that lack the ability to accurately detect bony changes in the early phases of injury. Proper management is dependent on early diagnosis. Scintigraphy and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have been established as the gold standards for diagnosing stress fractures. It […]

TOO MANY KNEE INJURIES ARE LOCO MOTION

The human (Homo sapien-sapiens, modern anatomical cognitive human, created 50,000-70,000 years ago) knee evolved • for primarily forward and limited backward locomotion, • when in pursuit of food and reproduction. • The ligaments, supporting the knee for human locomotion, evolved like the brake pads on a Ford 150 truck, • evolved to prevent the stress […]

BASKETBALL LOCOMOTION AND KNEE INJURY

Human locomotion requires specific movement configurations of all body anatomy. Examples are walking, running, jumping, lifting, throwing, striking and swimming. Sideways locomotion is not one of the customary human locomotion movements. It is important to have proficient mechanics during walking and running locomotion customary for human running and walking forward. Excellent mechanics result in less […]
