  • Why mobility should be a key part of your fitness routine

    Before your next workout, you might breeze through a few static stretches, thinking you’re preparing your muscles and joints. However, while these stretches can enhance your flexibility, you may need to do more for your mobility. Unlike flexibility, which primarily concerns the lengthening of muscles, mobility refers to efficiently moving your joints through their full range of motion. For example, if you play a reactive sport like basketball or tennis, you may quickly reach for a ball or change directions. Having mobility in your joints will allow you to pivot and move without straining your muscles or irritating the joint, says Samantha Smith, an assistant professor of clinical orthopedics and rehabilitation at the Yale School of Medicine.

  • CT Sun guard, former UConn star Moriah Jefferson out for next three weeks following ankle surgery

    Former UConn women's basketball star and current Connecticut Sun point guard Moriah Jefferson will be out for at least the next three weeks following arthroscopic surgery on her right ankle, the Sun announced Tuesday afternoon. Per the release, Dr. Adrianna L. Gianakos, DO — a foot and ankle orthopedic surgeon out of Yale Medicine — performed Jefferson's surgery on Monday. Jefferson will be reevaluated in three weeks to assess her return to the court. Her absence leaves the Sun with 10 available players for its next eight games before the league's Olympic break for the 2024 Paris Summer Games. If Jefferson isn't ready to return at the three-week mark, having the Olympic break off would grant her additional rest time before the league resumes games in mid-August.
