Hamstring stains are among the most common injuries and re-injuries in athletes. This study breaks down the steps to recovery after a hamstring strain. In most cases non-operative treatment is a viable option; in the case of a completely rupture surgery is recommended.
This study analyzed a series of fifteen consecutive subtrochanteric fractures treated in a long quadrilateral cast-brace with a pelvic band. Treatment with preliminary traction followed by an ambulatory cast-brace with a pelvic band resulted in a shorter period of treatment, an excellent range of motion of the hip and knee, and no non-unioins in the fifteen comminuted or open fractures.
