Specialization in a chosen sport is associated with a higher volume of activity -- and it could increase young athletes' risk of sustaining both traumatic- and overuse-based injuries, new study says.
The general treatment of hip bursitis consists of rest, ice, medication, drainage, and cortisone injections, followed by physical therapy.
Published results showed significant improvements in patient-reported outcomes at a minimum of 5 years among patients who underwent hip arthroscopy with segmental labral reconstruction. These results were comparable with patients who underwent primary labral repair, except primary labral reconstruction resulted in lower patient satisfaction scores.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the current available literature on hip arthroscopy and determine the clinical indications in the pediatric patient population (age ≤ 18).
The labrum is a type of cartilage that surrounds the socket of ball-and-socket joints. A labrum is found in both the shoulder and the hip joint. The labrum forms a ring around the edge of the bony socket of the joint. It helps to provide stability to the joint by deepening the socket, yet unlike bone, it also allows flexibility and motion.
