    Serious Yoga Injuries, Though Rare, Are on the Rise

    Dr. Joshua Harris, who is based at Houston Methodist Hospital, focuses on hip issues in younger adults. Yoga involves a lot of deep hip flexion and rotation — which, Harris said, can create pain for people who (usually unknowingly) have a hip “impingement” due to the shape and structure of the bones that make up the hip socket.

    “My advice to people is to start slow, don’t push too hard, and find a good instructor who emphasizes proper form and technique,” Harris said.

    Olympic javelin hopeful Devin Bogert works through injury

    Throwing his personal record at 250 feet, it’s hard to believe 22-year-old Devin Bogert threw javelin for years with pain and discomfort.

    “It took a couple years to try and figure out what was really going on, it was kind of always addressed as a groin injury and so it wasn’t until I saw Dr. Harris that I really focused that it was a hip problem,” Bogert said.

    Building Better Knees For The NBA

    The stress of repetitive jumping makes NBA players particularly prone to painful, even career-ending cartilage lesions. For decades, microfracture surgery—pricking holes in the knee bone to stimulate tissue regrowth—was the gold-standard repair. But the fibrocartilage that forms is stiffer than the knee’s hyaline cartilage, impeding a return to elite play. “So many new procedures coming out are superior,” says orthopedist Joshua Harris, who studied microfracture’s impact on the NBA. Here’s how three of them work.
