The shoulder is a ball and socket joint that allows for a wide variety of motion in many different planes. Therefore, it requires stabilization to avoid injuries from occurring. A large percentage of sports-related shoulder injuries involve the rotator cuff. What is the rotator cuff?
The Achilles tendon is located in the lower leg, connecting muscles in the calf to the heel bone. Research has shown a rupture of this tendon is perhaps the most severe muscular injury in the lower leg (Anderson & Hall, 1997). A rupture/tear can be partial or complete.
Morton’s Neuroma is a condition affecting a nerve located between the toes. In most cases the area affected is second and third or third and fourth metatarsal space, with the pain occurring between the retrospective toes. Effectively the adjacent metatarsal heads between the toes can compress the nerve between the bones, resulting in pain and irritation of this nerve.
