    A weighty subject: How the obesity epidemic is taking a toll on our bones and joints

    Deb Baranec wasn’t always obese. As a teenager, she carried a few extra pounds but managed it by being active. Her weight crept up, however, and by the time she suffered her first knee injury while skiing at the age of 27, she weighed close to 200 pounds.

    Doctors advised Baranec to lose weight to relieve the stress on her knees. She went on the first of many diets, started working-out, and lost 50 pounds. But eventually her knees hurt too much to continue exercising and her weight increased. “I’d visit different doctors looking for a solution to my knee pain. I’d see a new orthopaedic surgeon, and be advised to come back when I lost weight. I would try a new diet or exercise program, lose weight, gain it back, and then, gain a bit more - to the point I was 354 lbs.”

    Unfortunately, stories like Baranec’s are becoming more common.?

    Parkour wall climb – an abnormal snapshot of normal locomotion

    Picture this scene from an action movie: a man is fleeing down a narrow dead-end alley. He leaps to scale the wall, grips the top, jumps on top of the building and completes his successful getaway. Climbing a wall, while seemingly impossible to most of us, is a common stunt among the parkour community.

    Dr. John Bertram, PhD, along with Dr. James Croft, PhD, from Edith Cowan University, are collaborating to understand the strategies behind parkour movements and the way the brain reacts to control the leg in dynamic circumstances.

    $10 million grant will help researchers find the right drug to control arthritis

    When Ava Morgan was seven years old, she began complaining about sore knees. Within a few months, her knees, ankles and shoulders were swollen, and she was having trouble walking. A visit to paediatric rheumatologist Dr. Susa Benseler and a series of blood tests confirmed Ava had psoriatic juvenile arthritis.

    Dr. Benseler started Ava on medication immediately, but finding the right drug and the right dose was difficult. After several years of trying different therapies and struggling with side effects, Ava is now trying a type of drug called a biologic.

    “We still have many appointments to get everything figured out and decide what the future plan is for Ava. She’ll be starting on a new biologic and, fingers crossed, this gets her back on track and we can get her arthritis under control,” says Ava’s mom, Christeena Morgan.

    OUR FIVE YEAR STRATEGIC PLAN

    $10-million investment provides secure source of operating funds to support essential work of scientists and clinicians

    University of Calgary President Elizabeth Cannon and McCaig Institute for Bone and Joint Health Director Steven Boyd joined Jeff, JoAnn, Melanie, and Maurice McCaig, along with their families, yesterday to celebrate a transformational gift given in honour of their mother and sister-in-law, Anne Shorrocks McCaig.

    Through this $10-million investment via the McCaig Institute Foundation, the McCaig Institute for Bone and Joint Health will now have a secure source of operating funds to support the critical work being done by its world-class group of scientists and clinicians.

    “Our university family is grateful for this extraordinary support from Jeff, JoAnn, Melanie, and Maurice McCaig,” says President Cannon.? “Each day, the university’s researchers are leading the discovery of new knowledge and advancements that will improve quality of life in our community — but these innovators don’t work alone. They’re supported by many people behind the scenes who help with everything from co-ordinating grant applications, to engaging the community, to helping researchers advance their ideas forward.
