Activity level (AL) recommendations following total joint arthroplasty (TJA) remains controversial. Our purpose was to compare implant survivorship of high (HA) and low activity (LA) patients after primary TJA. We hypothesized that there would be no difference in implant survivorship based on AL.
Osteochondritis dissecans of the knee may not cause any symptoms, but some people may experience pain and swelling. Engaging in competitive sports may contribute to its development.
Hip arthritis results from the breakdown of cartilage within your hip joints, causing hip stiffness and pain that can increase with inactivity, standing, and walking. Although walking can be uncomfortable and difficult with hip arthritis, walking is also incredibly important for maintaining the mobility and strength of your hips.
The popliteal lymph nodes lie in the tissues behind a person’s knee. Many conditions can cause them to swell, such as infections and autoimmune conditions. It is rare for cancer to affect the popliteal lymph nodes.
Bone spurs in the knee are outgrowths of bone that develop in joints when there is increased pressure between bones from a lack of cartilage. Bone spurs are also called osteophytes. Bone spurs (or “spurring bone”) in the knee can cause pain and limit joint mobility, which can cause trouble with doing everyday activities like walking, squatting, bending, and going up and down stairs.
