Just think about being able to peek directly into your injured joint through a little telescope and not only seeing what is wrong, but also being able to fix it! This is no futuristic dream: It’s what is being done today with arthroscopic surgery, one of the most common surgical procedures being performed in our nation. The arthroscope has revolutionized the field of orthopedic surgery, especially the care of sports and recreational injuries. Many of these injuries include the joints, or moving articulations, of the body such as the knee and shoulder. The arthroscope is a small surgical tool that allows direct visualization of the interior of the joint, and in many cases, the repair of damaged or injured areas through tiny incisions.

Running is one of the most popular types of physical activity in the world. It is estimated that the U.S. participation rate is more than 30 million people (Almeida, M. et al). Despite the fact that running offers participants many health benefits, it does, however, also lead to a higher likelihood of sustaining an injury due to its repetitive nature. Lingering or chronic symptoms are common among musculoskeletal injuries and can limit the way you move and feel while exercising. Some common injuries include: Achilles tendonitis/tendinosis, plantar fasciitis, Patella-femoral pain syndrome, Iliotibial band syndrome, and Quadriceps/Hamstring Strains. Foam rolling and massage sticks have become common tools in your “first aid kit”, but they don’t always fix the problem.
