News just in from our client, Pain Management and Spine Care about PRP for Knee Sprain

A knee sprain is a musculoskeletal injury where the ligaments that connect the bones in the knees are torn or stretched. This painful condition can also lead to swelling and stiffness of the affected knee. Muscle weakness or spasms may also be present.

According to experts in pain management, Spring Hill, although the knee sprain might not be as serious as a fracture, it can still develop complications over time, especially if the patient doesn’t fully recover. Knee sprains can increase the patient’s risk for medial collateral ligament (MCL) and lateral collateral ligament (LCL) injuries, which can affect the knee’s strength and stability.

According to the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, there are about 74,000 MCL injuries recorded annually in the U.S. A large number of these occur among high school athletes who play football, soccer, hockey, and rugby. Some 60 percent of skiing accidents also involve knee sprains.

The shoulder is one of the most flexible joints in your body. Any major movement of the arms involves shoulder movement. If the shoulder is damaged, it can greatly limit your daily activities and affect the way you use your upper extremities.

Frozen shoulder is a self-limiting medical condition also known as adhesive capsulitis. It is characterized by thickening and tightening of the shoulder capsule so that the range of motion becomes limited. The synovial fluid, which reduces friction and lubricates the joint cartilage, also decreases and adhesions, or thick bands of tissues, develop in the shoulder.

FROZEN SHOULDER IN NUMBERS

According to our pain management doctor in Spring Hill, extreme pain and stiffness are the hallmark signs of a frozen shoulder. The condition can greatly impact the lives of patients in the working population, most especially since it commonly affects people in the working-age of 50 to 60. Approximately 2-5% of Americans are affected by this condition, with women more affected than men.
