Stronger quadriceps muscles, relative to the hamstrings, may lower the risk of total knee replacement, according to research being presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America. Researchers said the findings could inform strength-training programs for people with advanced arthritis in the knee.
You may already be taking medicines — either prescription or over the counter — to relieve stiffness, inflammation and pain in your joints. But long-term use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can damage your body — especially your liver and kidneys. NSAIDs can also have unpleasant gastrointestinal side effects.

Operating room waste is disposed of in landfill sites, recycled, or undergoes costly, energy-intensive incineration processes. By assessing the quantity and recyclability of waste in primary hip (THA) and knee arthroplasty (TKA), we aim to identify strategies to improve sustainability.
Possible causes of right hip pain include muscle injury, osteoarthritis, and pelvic floor conditions. In females, it can also occur during pregnancy. Treatment may involve pain relief, stretching, and exercise.
