Validity of indirect Ultrasound Findings in Acute Anterior Cruciate Ligament Ruptures

Researchers at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia are concerned about the validity of physical examinations of ACL tears in acute care settings.

Comparing PRP and prolotherapy in the treatment of SI joint dysfunction
