Whether it is running, swimming, weight lifting or aerobics, fitness experts say the center of all exercise routines is the core - the abdominal, back and muscles around the pelvis - which is the seat of stability, strength and power. Adding in exercise routines to strengthen the core can help the runner go faster, the basketball player jump higher and the everyday exerciser more easily do routine tasks from loading the car to cleaning the tub.
One in three PIP implants may rupture: British surgeons
(PARIS-AFP) - A study of 453 of their patients who had received PIP implants between seven and 12 years ago showed a rupture rate of between 15.9 percent and 33.8 percent.
"Previous studies have typically reported failure rates of between two percent and five percent," said authors Miles Berry and Jan Stanek of the study published in the Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery.
The new study had employed more conclusive ultrasound scans rather than the physical examinations typically used, they said.
