Boxing – a stronger and safer wrist

Whether training as a professional, as an amateur boxer or just for fitness, you transmit a considerable and repetitive force through your hand and wrist when boxing.  By hitting with great force, or just repetitively, it can be sufficient to cause instability within the hand and compromise functional use of one or both hands.

Knee Arthroscopy

 

Knee Arthroscopy Procedure 

Knee arthroscopy is a procedure performed through small incisions to repair injuries to tissues such as ligaments, cartilage or bone within the knee joint area with the use of a camera. Whether or not surgical treatment is the best intervention depends on a variety of factors, including age, degree of injury, and whether this is acute or of a chronic nature. Even though this procedure is not open surgery, all surgeries carry risks, such as blood clots, infections and injury risk to nerves, arteries or veins.
