Train well to run well

Are you ready to start running this year? Running is a fantastic way to relieve stress and get exercise if you’re healthy.

Set a Goal for Fall Races in Central Wisconsin

Why not set a goal to compete in one or more of the many races hosted throughout Central Wisconsin this fall to keep your training on track?

You’ll carry the memories of training hard and finishing a race for the rest of your life. But we warn you, running and racing against your own time can be addictive.

What is arthroscopy?

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure. It allows orthopedic surgeons to look inside the body. Providers can diagnose and repair injuries to the joints or the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage in the body.

During the surgery, the surgeon makes a series of button-hole-sized incisions near the injured or diseased area. Then the surgeon inserts a thin tube holding a micro-camera into each incision. As the surgeon guides the camera through the affected area, the camera projects video images onto a monitor.

Arthroscopy allows the surgeon to see what’s happening inside the body without major surgery.

What are the benefits of arthroscopic surgery?

What causes crackling or popping noises in the knee?

Snap, crackle, and pop! It makes a catchy slogan for a breakfast cereal. But when you hear those noises in your knee, they are a cause for concern, especially when accompanied by pain.

Some people hear sounds like crackling tissue paper when they bend or straighten their knees.

Known as crepitus, the noise occurs when air bubbles are trapped in the synovial lining of the joint. It is usually harmless. But, when the crackling sounds combine with pain, the symptoms may point to a serious condition, like arthritis.

At other times, snapping sensations, cracking, and popping are symptoms of the conditions below.

Ligament injuries.

Your ligaments are tough bands […]

What is an IT band injury?

Iliotibial band or IT band syndrome often is classified as an overuse injury.

The IT band is the long, flexible, fibrous tendon that runs down the outside of the leg from the hip to below the knee joint.

When the IT band becomes inflamed or irritated, it swells and no longer moves freely. The swollen tendon restricts movement or “catches” on the bones of the joint, causing pain and stiffness.
