  • knee
  • Many women and men with hip, knee, and other joint pain never pursue treatment due to anxiety regarding surgery, but Magee's approach makes our patients feel more cared for and comfortable. (upmc.com)
  • Some joints, such as the knee, elbow, and shoulder, are self-lubricating, almost frictionless, and are able to withstand compression and maintain heavy loads while still executing smooth and precise movements. (wikipedia.org)
  • Symptoms of hypermobility include a dull but intense pain around the knee and ankle joints and the soles of the feet. (wikipedia.org)
  • synovial fluid
  • GAG's also provide the necessary building blocks to regenerate cartilage and connective tissues, and they help make synovial fluid (which reduces friction in joints during movement) thick and gummy. (infohorse.com)
  • The effects of this process will remain for a period of time known as the "refractory period," during which the joint cannot be "re-cracked," which lasts about twenty minutes, while the gases are slowly reabsorbed into the synovial fluid. (wikipedia.org)
  • Flexor
  • The flexor hallucis longus and flexor digitorum longus flex the interphalangeal joint of the big toe and lateral four toes, respectively. (wikipedia.org)
  • bone
  • When it comes to improving the lives of those suffering from joint and bone pain, the Bone and Joint Center at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC offers something that can make a real difference. (upmc.com)
  • At the Magee Bone and Joint Center, treatments for joint and bone pain can be nonoperative. (upmc.com)
  • The care team at the Bone and Joint Center at Magee keeps patients and families involved every step of the way, so you can feel empowered to make decisions about your care. (upmc.com)

  • movements
  • Joint movements are described with reference to the basic anatomical planes . (wikipedia.org)
  • Joints can also be classified functionally according to the type and degree of movement they allow: Joint movements are described with reference to the basic anatomical planes. (wikipedia.org)
  • shoulder
  • Current thinking suggests four causative factors: The shape of the ends of the bones-Some joints normally have a large range of movement, such as the shoulder and hip. (wikipedia.org)
  • stresses
  • Throughout a welded assembly's life, cracks, which reduce the fatigue life of a joint, could initiate, propagate, and grow causing the assembly to fail even if these cyclic stresses are low and smaller than the base material and weld filler material yield stress. (wikipedia.org)
  • The mean stress a welded joint may see in application, can be altered due to the welding processes implementing residual stresses, changing the fatigue life and can render S-N laboratory testing results. (wikipedia.org)
  • Residual stresses can still remain in a welded joint even after some of these stress relief methods have been achieved. (wikipedia.org)
  • Complex
  • Because of the actual physical existence of Indian and Egyptian examples, we know that furniture from the first several dynasties show the use of complex joints, like the Dovetail, over 5 thousand years ago. (wikipedia.org)
  • reduces
  • Since the presence of cracks reduces fatigue life and accelerates failure, it is important to avoid all cracking mechanisms in order to prolong the fatigue life of a welded joint. (wikipedia.org)
