Rotator Cuff Tendinitis/Tear
Having shoulder pain or problems lifting your arms over your head? You may have tendonitis or a tear in the muscles and tendons that hold your shoulder in place, called the rotator cuff. This video explains symptoms of this syndrome, possible treatments, and ways you can prevent shoulder injuries.
Back and Neck
Back and neck pain are among the top reasons that people visit their doctor. Taking good care of your back and neck can help prevent problems.
Shoulder and Elbow
The shoulder has the widest range of motion of any joint in your body—but that also makes it the most vulnerable to injury.
Hand and Wrist
Many common hand and wrist complaints—including arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome—can interfere with activities of daily living.
Hip pain and problems range from sciatica to osteoarthritis and hip fractures.
The knee is a complex joint of bones held together with tendons, ligaments, and muscles—any of which can be damaged through everyday activities or high-impact sports.
Leg and Foot
From corns and calluses to ankle sprains, your feet and lower legs are susceptible to many stresses and injuries.
Bone Tumors
Bone tumors can be either benign or malignant. Most bone tumors are specific to certain areas of the bone.
Other Bone Conditions
Other diseases that can affect bone health include Paget's disease and primary hyperparathyroidism.
