WEDNESDAY, Sept. 20, 2017 -- Seniors with type 2 diabetes may be at increased risk for fractures. And researchers think they know why.

TUESDAY, July 25, 2017 -- A new surgical procedure can help people with shoulder injuries once considered beyond repair, a small new study suggests.
Out of 100 patients who had the surgery in the study, all 26 of those who had played sports before the surgery were able to play sports again afterwards. Thirty-two patients who had jobs lifting heavy workloads were able to return completely to work. Another two -- a farmer and a manual worker -- were also able to return to work, but with reduced hours and reduced workloads.
