Adults with undiagnosed coeliac disease (UCD) tend to have lower bone density despite consuming more calcium and phosphorous, according to new research led by George Mason University’s College of Health and Human Services.

New research shows that people who engage in high-intensity interval training (HIIT) are at greater risk of injury, especially in the knees and shoulders.
People who have Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction surgery may benefit from a therapy known as blood flow restriction (BFR), according to a new study.
