Arthroscopic knee surgery is used to treat knee conditions, including cartilage injuries, meniscus tears, and ligament problems. Because it uses several small incisions rather than a large one, people tend to return to their activities more quickly and with less pain. But that's not true for everyone.
A study that specifically looked at return to racket sports, not sports in general, in patients who underwent anatomic total shoulder or reverse shoulder arthroplasty showed a 79% return to racket sports by 12-month follow-up.
The McMurray test is a physical examination doctors use for knee injuries. A positive McMurray test means a person likely has a meniscal tear.
Hip bursitis is inflammation of the bursae of the hips. Treatment usually involves anti-inflammatory medication, physical therapy, and rest.
Damage to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a common yet severe knee injury. Most people who experience a torn ACL recover in 3–12 months, depending on injury severity and goals for rehabilitation.
