Based on a review of 71 studies that included nearly one million workers, the riskiest occupations include agriculture, construction, mining, service jobs and housekeeping. And jobs that demand excessive kneeling, squatting, standing, lifting and climbing stairs all increase your odds.
If you have a bad hip and lower back pain, a new study suggests that hip replacement surgery may solve both issues at once.
Medicare typically covers hip replacement surgery, providing a doctor confirms the procedure is medically necessary.
Purpose: To determine if adding high intensity aerobic interval training (HIIT) of the rotator cuff to usual care was feasible in SAPS, and improved shoulder endurance more than usual care alone. Additionally, to examine the influence on shoulder pain and disability and the response of tendinous microcirculation following HIIT.
A new study offers reassurance that many surgery patients can safely be freed from one discomfort of recovery -- wearing compression stockings to prevent blood clots.
Because Medicare doesn’t typically cover elective surgeries, you may be concerned that you’ll have to live with pain or pay for the surgery out of pocket. But Medicare will, in fact, pay for a portion of the costs if your doctor states that shoulder replacement surgery is medically necessary in your specific case.
Surgery is typically necessary to treat the injury. But should it be done immediately after the injury happens?

Rapid Versus Standard Recovery Protocol Is Associated With Improved Recovery of Range of Motion 12 Weeks After Total Knee Arthroplasty
With the increasing demand for total knee arthroplasty (TKA), rapid recovery protocols (RRPs) have been introduced to reduce costs and the length of stay (LOS). Little is known about the effects of RRPs on postoperative knee range of motion (ROM).
As this case of a 59-year-old patient with right shoulder weakness and pain illustrates, partial repair with tuberoplasty can restore function while relieving pain in patients younger than age 60, buying time until they are at a better age for reverse shoulder arthroplasty to manage a massive rotator cuff tear.
