Tendons are strong cords of fibrous tissue that attach muscles to bones, and therefore constitute a very important part of the musculoskeletal system. Quadriceps is one of the strongest and bulkiest muscles in the body and is located in the anterior compartment of the thighs functioning as a sole extender of the knee joint to
Clavicle fractures occur commonly, especially in children and young adults. They constitute 5 to 10% of all fractures. Clavicles are susceptible to injuries due to their superficial location, thin midshaft, and the forces transmitted across it. The management of clavicle fractures is determined by the location and nature of the injury. Group I (midshaft) fractures

Tearing a tendon in your hip can greatly limit your mobility, and may require bracing or surgery. Platelet-rich plasma therapy can help your hip joint recover after a labral tear.

Ultrasound-guided injections are more accurate than landmark-guided injections. Ultrasound guidance improves not only accuracy but makes the injections more cost-effective because they hit their mark. Recent comparative studies have also shown that ultrasound-guided injections at the knee, ankle, and foot are even more effective to landmark-guided injections. They can be used to treat calcific tendonitis
