The knee joint is one of the most frequently injured joints of the human body. This is probably because it is subject to enormous stresses while walking or running.
The bones of your ankle joint are connected to each other by strong ligaments which provide stability and help with movement. Inward twisting or outward rolling of your foot when walking or running will cause a tear in these ligaments and result in a classic ankle sprain. It is one of the most common injuries sustained by athletes or people with active lifestyles.
It is normal to experience some amount of muscle soreness after a good workout. How sore your muscles after working out will depend on whether your body is accustomed to the level of intensity and the specific exercises performed. If you are a beginner, the chances are you will experience delayed muscle soreness (DOMS).
The shoulder is one of the most flexible joints in the human body which makes so many routine upper body movements possible. Unfortunately, this wide range of motion of the shoulder joint also predisposes it to injuries such as dislocations, rotator cuff tears, and fractures. When the damage to the shoulder joint is not amenable to conservative treatment, your doctor may recommend shoulder surgery.
The holidays are a special time when families traditionally come together to enjoy each other’s company over food and drink. There are usually plenty of holiday treats that are hard to resist – candy canes, caramel apples, cheesecake, fruit cake, eggnog, wine, gingerbread, & glazed ham to name a few.
