  • High, inside starting point and intramedullary reaming are keys for Jones fracture fixation in athletes

    Source: Healio

    Jones fractures are fractures of the proximal fifth metatarsal metaphyseal-diaphyseal junction that are common in young athletic populations, particularly elite athletes. The poor blood supply to the fifth metatarsal has been well documented, and Jones fractures develop along a watershed area between the intramedullary nutrient and metaphyseal arteries. Surgical fixation is indicated in cases of failed nonoperative treatment, re-fracture, nonunion or when more rapid recovery is required typically in active individuals.

  • Mind over matter: Can you think your way to strength?

    Source: Science Daily

    Regular mental imagery exercises help preserve arm strength during 4 weeks of immobilization, researchers have found. Strength is controlled by a number of factors — the most studied by far is skeletal muscle. However, the nervous system is also an important, though not fully understood, determinant of strength and weakness. In this study, researchers set out to test how the brain’s cortex plays into strength development.
