In July 2008, I experienced some foot pain, but felt that I could work through it by exercising. Therefore, a round of Australian tennis doubles with two friends sounded wonderful in order to enjoy the warm weather and to burn a few calories!
By the third game of the match, it was time for me to play the singles court. The first rally went just fine, although I don’t remember who won the point. After a good serve to start the second point of the game, we started to rally. One of my friends hit an off-speed shot to my backhand.

What is the point of joint injections? Sticking a needle into a joint is not anyone's idea of a good time; however, at times, an injection might be the best option despite the risks and discomfort. Knowing the risks of bleeding and infection, millions of people put up with the pain of this invasive procedure. Avoiding the needle would be ideal; however, the needle does provide an access route for the fluids being injected into the joint. The results of a joint injection depend on the type of substance being injected, the accuracy of the injection, and location of the injection. The whole point in having an injection depends on the results.
In order to understand the purpose of a joint injection, one must first have some basic understanding about the joint itself. The joint is sealed into an encapsulated, confined space by the synovial joint capsule . Any fluid injected into the joint capsule stays within the joint and does not disperse throughout the entire body. All of the join...
