Trochanteric bursitis is inflammation and swelling of the bursa (fluid-filled sacs that cushion and protect tendons, ligaments, and muscles) in the area near where the femur (thighbone) projects outward, which is an attachment site for the gluteal muscles.
Knee hyperextension occurs when the knee joint bends backward beyond its normal range of motion. Depending on the severity, this injury can cause damage to the ligaments or tendons that support this area of your leg. It can also lead to pain and several other symptoms.
For people of middle age or older with a tear in the meniscus, but without a history of acute knee trauma, surgery is rarely useful.

Researchers from Karolinska Institutet have compared high dose exercise therapy versus low dose in patients with symptomatic knee osteoarthritis. The study published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine show that both groups had similar results.
Hip dysplasia is a condition that occurs when the hip socket (acetabulum) is too shallow to fully support the ball of the hip joint, called the femoral head.
In some cases, physical therapy, activity modification and bracing can help the patient return to active, non-pivoting sports and lifestyle without ACL surgery.
VirtualHip is a software platform that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and 3D imaging to support diagnosis and treatment of pediatric hip deformities.
