Descriptions of Articles
  • Avascular Necrosis Treatment
    As this eMedTV segment explains, treating avascular necrosis may involve medications, exercises, surgery, or other options. This article explains the treatment options in detail, including when each type is generally used.
  • Avasular Necrosis
    Avascular necrosis develops when there is a temporary or permanent loss of blood supply to the bones. This eMedTV article covers the causes of the disease and lists possible symptoms. Avasular necrosis is a common misspelling of avascular necrosis.
  • Balance Exercises
    Balance exercises may not strengthen your bones, but they do improve your coordination, and that can help prevent falls. This is especially important for people who already have osteoporosis or are at risk for it. Examples include toe/heel raises and the wall slide. To give the wall slide a try, stand with your buttocks, palms of your hands, and shoulders against a wall and slide up and down, bending your knees halfway to a sitting position. Keep your shoulders back, and your stomach and back flat.
