  • Short High-Intensity Workouts Offer The Same Benefits As Longer, Moderate Ones

    According to a report by Business Insider, brief bouts of high-intensity interval training makes it possible to achieve or even exceed the physical benefits of spending longer periods of time working out. Jason Barone, a clinical director at an organization called Professional Physical Therapy, reportedly said, "Time is everything for people. High-intensity training is kind of perfect for the busy schedule — you don't need a gym, you can do it at your home, you're looking at about a 20- to 30-minute workout." Business Insider points out the basic idea is that people work out at close to full-on intensity for short periods of time instead of doing longer workouts at more moderate, 50-70% exertion levels. High intensity workouts include short sprints, circuits of body-weight exercises, as well as using weights or kettlebells.

  • Surgery Benefits Older Patients With Meniscus Tear More Than Observation

    Meniscal root tears, often seen in young athletes, also commonly strike older people with degenerative knee problems. Stanford Medical researchers have recently discovered an arthroscopic surgical technique to help repair these injuries in older adults. According to the research, surgical repair enables patients to avoid the need for more complicated surgeries later. Only 3.3 percent of patients who had the procedure required total knee surgery versus 33.3 percent who received non-surgical therapy. According to UPI, researchers also found significant improvement in all clinical areas in the surgery group at a two-year follow-up.
