In adolescents bones are still maturing. With repeated overuse of a muscle, the point where the muscles’ tendon attaches onto the bone often becomes inflamed.
Damage to the Anterior Cruciate Ligament of the knee is one of the most highly publicised injuries in Sport.
A torn cartilage/meniscus is a very common knee injury. It can happen while playing sport, at work and also while doing household activities.
A recent review of Literature and research into the effects of Hydrotherapy in Hip and Knee pain found the following:
With netball, and all the football codes commencing their seasons, you are sure to have patients limp in saying “I THINK I’VE DONE MY KNEE!”
The iliotibial band (ITB) is a thick strip of fibrous tissue that passes down the outside of the thigh and attaches just below the outside of the knee.
The iliotibial band is a strong band of connective tissue that runs from the hip region on the outside of the thigh and attaches onto the outside part of the shin bone.
This condition refers to degeneration of the knee joint surfaces and often a loss of space between the thigh and shin bones.
The stability of a joint is increased by the presence of a joint capsule made up of connective tissue, thickened at points of stress to form ligaments. The ends of the ligaments attach to bone.
The meniscus are made up of tough cartilage that cushion the knee joint. The medial meniscus rests on the medial plateau of the tibia, and the lateral meniscus rests on the lateral plateau. The menisci help to distribute the weight evenly through the joint.
Pain at the attachment of the quadriceps tendon to the tibia can often be due to the condition known as Osgood-Schlatters Disease. This condition is most often noticed during a growth spurt early in the second decade of life.
Do your knees crackle and crunch when you squat down? Are they painful when you are running? Do you have pain climbing up and down stairs? Do your knees hurt when you stand up after watching a movie?
The patellofemoral joint is the articulation between the thigh bone (femur) and the knee cap (patella)
Arguably one of the most common musculo-Skeletal problems in Australia, Patello-Femoral Syndrome can be resolved quickly and easily with Physiotherapy.
Pain at the attachment of the patellar tendon to the patella can often be due to the condition known as Sinding-Larsen-Johansson Disease. This condition is most often noticed during a growth spurt early in the second decade of life.
