The anterior cruciate ligament is one of the major ligaments of the knee, which passes between the femur and tibia obliquely. Its function is to provi The anterior cruciate ligament is one of the major ligaments of the knee, which passes between the femur and tibia obliquely. Its function is to provide stability to the knee, keeping the leg is moved forward with respect to the thigh. Of the four major ligaments of the knee, the anterior cruciate ligament is the one most commonly injured, especially when a sudden change occurs in the direction of the knee. The most common injuries are torn anterior cruciate ligament and partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament. Symptoms include pain, inability to walk or stand for long periods, or up and down stairs. For the treatment of both lesions can opt for surgery by arthroscopy or conservative treatment based on rehabilitation to strengthen the muscles. ...

Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique that lets you view and work directly inside the joint with small incisions in the skin, les Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique that lets you view and work directly inside the joint with small incisions in the skin, less than a centimeter each. This type of arthroscopy is indicated to diagnose certain problems of pain or blockage in the hip, for the extraction of intra-articular loose bodies, for breaks labrum (stabilizer cartilage of the femoral head) and the impingement (excess friction in the movements of the hip). The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and after its completion it is possible that the patient may feel discomfort, swelling and numbness in the pubis, for a few hours or days. ...
Arthroscopic knee surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique for accessing the interior of the joint through small holes in the skin. Through Arthroscopic knee surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique for accessing the interior of the joint through small holes in the skin. Through a small caliber lens inside the knee is observed and treat various injuries without opening. Arthroscopic knee surgery is used to remove or repair torn meniscus cartilage to anterior cruciate ligament injuries broken, cut broken pieces of articular cartilage, remove loose fragments of bone or cartilage or remove inflamed synovial tissue. Recovery from knee arthroscopy is much faster than traditional surgery. Then the patient must regularly exercise his knee for several weeks. ...
Shoulder arthroscopy is a practice of minimally invasive surgery that allows you to see directly inside the joint and work within it, without opening it. Only a few small cuts in the skin, about one centimeter each are made. Shoulder arthroscopy can treat injuries such as rotator cuff impingement syndrome, shoulder instability, SLAP lesions, articular cartilage injuries, chronic synovitis, shoulder stiffness and some types of fractures. Recovery can take between one and six months and probably the patient must wear splints during the first week. For many procedures, physical therapy may help regain motion and strength of the shoulder. ...
The shoulder dislocation is an injury that occurs when the humeral head (the main arm bone) slips out of the joint cavity. Usually the result of a direct blow to the shoulder or a fall in the whole body on the extension arm rests. It is a painful injury that prevents moving the arm. Sometimes the humerus comes to tear the capsule that surrounds and damages the ligaments of the shoulder, making projecting the bulk of the humeral head. They are more likely to suffer an injury that people who practice certain sports, like judo, hockey, rugby, skiing and handball. Usually, to treat dislocated shoulder sling is placed on the arm for at least four weeks. Next, it is advisable to do rehabilitation exercises to strengthen the muscles in the area. If the injury is repeated frequently, surgery may be necessary. ...
Hip pain are all annoying served on the hip or around it. It can be caused by a fracture, bone infection or joint pain or arthritis.
Cartilage transplantation is used to replace damaged cartilage areas as a result of certain injuries. This procedure is often used for cartilage damage in the upper ankle and knee area. By arthroscopy and the damaged cartilage material to be used for an autologous cartilage (a patient's own cartilage) is removed smoothed area. This material must be grown and after three to four weeks, the cultured cells are implanted with sporte material, under a second arthroscopy, to grow covering the defect. ...
The menisci are cartilage located within the knee, both on the inside (medial meniscus) and outer (lateral meniscus), which dampen the shock between the femur and the tibia. The menisci of the knee are the most damaged structures to be hit in that area, especially in sports like soccer. In fact, the medial meniscus is more prone to injury than the lateral meniscus, and which is connected to medial collateral ligament and the joint capsule, so that it is less mobile. Treatment of a meniscus injury as broken medial meniscus may involve surgery, depending on the patient. In case of surgery, only the damaged part of the meniscus is cut by arthroscopy. ...
The rotator cuff injury is an inflammatory process, or partial or total damage of the shoulder tendons. The rotator cuff is a group of four tendons that come together and surround ahead, behind and above the head of the humerus. These tendons are connected individually with major muscles attached to the shoulder blade or scapula. By contracting these muscles, stimulate the rotator cuff tendons, causing the lifting movements, separation and internal and external rotation, hence the name "rotator cuff". ...
Tendinitis means inflammation of a tendon, in which micro cracks and areas of necrosis. The shoulder tendinitis can affect especially the long head of the brachial biceps and muscles called the rotator cuff: supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor and subscapularis. The main causes of this injury include age, repetitive in certain work activities or throwing sports movement, and poor blood supply to the tendons of the supraspinatus and infraspinatus muscles, a fact that favors degenerative processes. Symptoms of shoulder tendinitis are inflammatory pain, the pressure on the tendon, pain in performing active movements of the shoulder and pain upon stretching the muscle tendon. The appropriate treatment for shoulder tendonitis is physiotherapy. ...
Clamping a spinal injury is caused by a blockage of one or more vertebrae that causes significant loss of mobility. Symptoms, well defined, vary depending on how this blockage occurs. The entrapment of a nerve oppressed compression causes pain and immobility where he has his way. The cause of impingement may be improper and inappropriate positions held at work overexertion impingement can be lumbar or cervical spine, depending on where they occur. If maintained for a long time and causes discomfort, over time could cause a herniated disc. The treatment involves the administration of drugs to relieve pain and physical therapy. ...
