Tennis Elbow – Treatment Approaches
Tennis elbow, also know as lateral epicondylalgia or lateral epicondylosis, is a prevalent disorder characterized by degeneration of the extensor tendon resulting in biomechanical and sensorimotor deficits that may interfere with occupational tasks, activities of daily living, and sports. This course reviews two articles; the first evaluates relationships between self-reported pain and function, and measures of tendon pathology and biomechanics in individuals with tennis elbow. The second presents an unconventional treatment approach to the commonly used intervention by examing the effects of exercises that change scapular strength and position on an individual with tennis elbow.
Knee Pain – Surgical Options for Meniscus Repair and Articular Cartilage Injuries
This course reviews two articles that explore surgical options for meniscus repair and articular cartilage injuries. Innovative approaches to treating symptomatic lesions of the knee’s articular surface are discussed in the first article. Surgical options reviewed include; arthroscopic lavage and debridement, microfracture, autologous chondrocyte implantation, osteochondral autograft transfer system and osteochondral allograft transplantation. The second article reviews clinical signs found during a clinical evaluation that indicate a meniscus tear. The indications for meniscus repair and/or meniscus transplantation are presented and both of these operative techniques are discussed in detail.
