A randomized controlled trial found that sturdy supportive shoes improve knee pain on walking and knee-related quality of life compared with flat flexible shoes.
A feeling of tightness or stiffness in the knee can occur as a result of overuse, injury, or age-related wear and tear.
An algorithm that analyzes MRI images and automatically detects small changes in knee joints over time could be used in the development of new treatments for arthritis.
The adverse side effects of the social isolation measures implemented to combat COVID-19 include an increase in sedentary behavior and physical inactivity, which can contribute to a deterioration in cardiovascular health even in the short term. Older people and people with chronic diseases tend to be most affected.

Additionally, to examine the influence on shoulder pain and disability and the response of tendinous microcirculation following HIIT.
