Knees & Legs
Knee sprain is a common injury that occurs from overstretching of the ligaments that support the knee joint. A knee sprain occurs when the knee ligaments are twisted or turned beyond its normal range causing the ligaments to tear.
The knee is one of the most complex and largest joint in the body, and is more susceptible to injury. Meniscal tears are one among the common injuries to the knee joint. It can occur at any age, but are more common in athletes playing contact sports.
"Shin splints" is used to describe the pain and inflammation of the tendons, muscles and bone tissue around the tibia or shine bone (a large bone in the lower leg). It occurs as a result of vigorous physical activity such as exercise or sports. The condition is also referred to as medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS).
Quadriplegia, also called tetraplegia, is a condition which results in loss of function or paralysis of the muscles in arms and legs.
Quadriplegia is caused by spinal cord injury, stroke, Bell's palsy, nerve disease such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and autoimmune disorder such as Guillain-Barré syndrome.
