Casts vs. Splits: What’s the Difference?
(http://ow.ly/keTK30n4aAI)

Casts and splits are both orthopedic devices that keep a broken bone in place while it heals, and protect the broken bone. Casts provide more support and protection than splits. They are usually made out of fiberglass or plaster, which can easily be molded to the shape of the injured limb. Splints provide less support than casts but are easier and faster to use. They are commonly used immediately after orthopedic surgery as they can be tightened or loosened easily to accommodate for swelling.

What Is Tennis Elbow?
(http://ow.ly/6KMH30n4aAE)

Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, is a common injury caused by repetitive stress due to overuse. This stress can cause tears in the tendons that connect your forearm muscles to the elbow. These tears can cause inflammation, making it painful to grip and lift objects. Any activity that continuously strains the muscle around the elbow – such as painting, playing racquet sports, playing golf, and tree-cutting – can cause tennis elbow.

It's always good to remember that prevention is better than a cure. To stay in tiptop health, here are three things you should regularly get:
• Vaccinations: especially crucial for children and young adults who have yet to develop their immune system;
• Check-ups: helps prevent the formation, or further worsening of illnesses;
• Routine Tests and Exams: particularly critical for middle-aged and elderly patients who have weakened immunization to diseases.

Your Recommended Activity Levels After a Knee Replacement
(http://ow.ly/1Fit30n4aAC)

After knee replacement surgery, you might be itching to resume your normal, daily activities. While it is important to stay active once you get home, you shouldn’t do too much too fast. In general, you can resume driving once you are done taking narcotic pain medication, and when your strength has returned. Walk as much as possible, and make sure to do your physical therapy exercises for at least two months after surgery. Low impact physical activities, such as swimming and biking, are preferable to increase the longevity of your knee.

3 Tips to Taking Care of Your Cast
(http://ow.ly/NBwo30n4aAy)

Casts are used to keep bones in place while they heal. To be comfortable in your cast, follow these five tips.

Tip #1: keep your cast dry, as moisture can cause the plaster to irritate your skin.
Tip #2: if your cast gets itchy, do not put objects down your cast to itch, and do not apply powers to the skin. Instead, contact your doctor.
Tip #3: inspect your cast regularly. If you find any cracks or soft spots in your cast, speak with your doctor.

Who Is at Risk for Rotator Cuff Tears?
(http://ow.ly/lpf230n4aAw)

A 2010 study, in the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, found that full-thickness rotator cuff tears were present in 20.7% of the general sample population, and 36% of the study subjects had symptoms of torn rotator cuffs. Rotator cuff tears were commonly associated with older adults, males, the dominant arm, and those who engaged in heavy labor. This study concluded that rotator cuff tears could affect the general population, but risk factors for this injury include age.
