For starters, "good" posture occurs when the muscles of the body support the skeleton in an alignment that is both stable and energy efficient.
A study by Henry Ford Health System published in the October issue of The American Journal of Sports Medicine provides a promising answer to the question “Can patients effectively manage their pain after ACL knee reconstruction surgery without opioids?”
Detamore is the principal investigator of a research project being conducted at OU and OU Health that is using a protein fragment identified by comparing two different molecules known to support stem cell conversion to true cartilage cells.
The ENDURE trial is a first-of-its-kind study, Sanford said. Adults with a diagnosis of osteoarthritis in the wrist, knee, ankle, shoulder or hip are eligible to participate in the clinical trial. The study is regulated through the Food and Drug Administration, and the cells are tested for quality and safety before injection, Sanford said.

Post-traumatic osteoarthritis is a musculoskeletal disorder shadowing especially the life of young and active population. Inhibition of cartilage damage progression with early intervention is crucial. To predict how an intervention would affect the state of an injured knee joint, knowledge of biomechanical and inflammatory aspects of osteoarthritis progression is necessary.
