The 9 Sneaky Things That Are Causing Your Knee Pain

Tue, 15 Nov 2016 11:13:12 +0100

SPECIAL FROM Next Avenue Whether it came on suddenly when you were playing tennis or more gradually over many years, knee pain can keep you from doing even the most basic of activities. At the very least, it can limit your ability to move as easily or quickly, or sit in one place for an extended time.   Arthritis is the most common cause of knee pain for older adults, said Dr. Julie Switzer, an orthopedic surgeon at Regions Hospital in St. Paul, Minn. Arthritis comes in three main forms, she said: osteoarthritis, inflammatory arthritis and post-traumatic arthritis. We’ll examine these types, as well as other causes of knee pain, below. The others include Lyme arthritis, torn cartilage or ligament, tendinitis, bursitis, gout and spontaneous osteonecrosis of the knee. Then, we&...



Snapping Scapula Syndrome

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 23:24:04 +0100

What is snapping scapula syndrome? Snapping scapula syndrome is a condition causing painful grinding, clicking or snapping of the shoulder blade (Figure 1). The shoulder joint itself is called the glenohumeral joint. The acromioclavicular joint is associated with shoulder separation. Snapping scapula occurs at the scapulothoracic joint and is different from other shoulder related problems (Figure 2). Over 1/3 of the shoulder movement occurs between the scapula and the thoracic cage. The shoulder blade serves as an anchor for the subscapularis and serratus anterior muscles (Figure 3). These muscles as well as the bursa provide for smooth movement of the shoulder. With muscle weakness or inactivity, the scapula may rub on the rib bones during movement. Snapping scapula can be...

Common Causes of Elbow Pain

Thu, 06 Oct 2016 20:32:51 +0100

There are many conditions that can be associated with elbow pain. Elbow pain is not usually a serious condition. Tennis Elbow Tennis elbow can also be referred to as lateral epicondylitis. Tennis elbow is an inflammation, soreness or pain on the outside (lateral) area near the elbow (Figure 1). The condition is usually seen in patients who perform manual labor or sports that require twisting and extension of the wrist against resistance. Tennis elbow is often associated with degeneration, irritation, tears and pain of the extensor tendons. Treatment: Treatment of tennis elbow includes ice, wearing an elbow pad, a decrease in activity, physical therapy, eccentric exercises, injections (steroid or PRP) and surgery as a last resort. Differential Diagnosis: Radial Tunnel Syndrome cause...



Knee Bursitis

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 19:51:14 +0100

The knee bursa is a small fluid filled sac located between the front of the knee cap (the patella) and the overlying skin (Figure 1). This bursa allows the knee cap to slide freely underneath the skin as we bend and straighten the knee. This bursitis causes pain, swelling, tenderness and a lump in the area on top of the knee cap (Figure 2). It may be very difficult to kneel down and put the knee on the floor due to the tenderness and swelling. Types of Knee Bursitis: Depending on the location, there are a few different types of knee bursitis including; suprapatellar, prepatellar (the most common/popeye knee), infrapatellar and pes anserine (Figure 3). Causes: Trauma is one cause of knee bursitis. Direct injury or fall onto the knee cause damage the bursa with development of sud...



Common Causes of Shoulder Pain

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 21:05:47 +0100

Shoulder pain is most commonly associated with injuries to the muscles, tendons and ligaments within the shoulder. However, this pain can also originate from the area of the cervical spine and radiate from the neck down into the shoulder and the arms (Figure 1). There are two main joints within the shoulder, which include the acromioclavicular joint and the glenohumeral joint (Figure 2). The acromion and the clavicle (collar bone) combine to form the AC joint. The coracoid process is a thick curved structure attached to the upper part of the scapula (shoulder blade). The glenohumeral joint is a ball and socket joint, which involves articulation between the head of the humerus and the glenoid fossa of the scapula. There are five major muslces of the shoulder joint that are respons...



Common Causes of Knee Pain

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 20:21:12 +0100

Knee pain is very common and it can be either severe and disabling or mild and transient. In this article we list the most common causes of knee pain. Patellar Bursitis: Patellar bursitis is characterized by pain and inflammation located near the knee joint (Figure 1). The bursa becomes inflamed and fills with fluid. This condition causes pain, swelling, tenderness and a lump in the area on top of the kneecap. Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tear (ACL): This type of tear involves a valgus stress to the knee (Figure 2). Usually the patient will have swelling and a hematoma. A hemorrhage in the knee will indicate an ACL tear in 80% of patients. An ACL tear may have an associated meniscal tear. The Lachman's Test will be positive with this type of tear. An MRI is used to diagnose this type ...

Why Does My Hip Click?

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 23:26:07 +0100

Snapping Hip Snapping hip is an audible clicking or snapping sensation caused by hip movement that can be painful. There are a variety of reasons patients present with a clicking or snapping sensation in the hip. A click in the hip can be the result of the following: a labral tear, iliotibial band syndrome, psoas bursitis, psoas tendon snap, and arthritis of the hip. It is essential for physicians to understand each cause to provide an effective course of treatment. Labral Tear A labral tear is a common cause for clicking sensations in the hip joint. The labrum refers to the ring of cartilage surrounding the socket of ball-and-socket joints. The labrum of the hip is essential in providing stability to the joint. This same ring of cartilage can be found in the shoulder. Labral tears c...



Mysterious Back Pain and The Sacroiliac Joint

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 19:30:36 +0100

Low back pain is very common and often the the sacroiliac joint is source of that pain. However pain originating from SI joint is usually unappreciated, underdiagnosed, misunderstood and usually contributes to other sources such as in the hip and spine. Patients experiencing low back pain can spend months or even years in treatment without the correct diagnosis. Diagnostic injection of the sacroiliac joint is the only means to confirm diagnosis. Pain from the hips, spine and SI joint can overlap and be associated. Patients can experience injuries associated with the spine and SI joint or the hip and SI joint.

How I Got Into Shape After Quitting the Gym

Fri, 13 May 2016 19:14:51 +0100

I've been a group fitness junkie for as long as I can remember. I seemed to need the competitiveness inherent in group exercise even in high school in order to keep me accountable and working hard. Group bootcamps, kickboxing and spin classes dictated my weekly schedule. By the time I reached my mid 30s, I sported several herniated discs, a knee that swelled from time to time and bursitis in my hip, which constantly threatened my kickboxing habit. Not only did I not listen to my body, but I didn't listen to several orthopedic surgeons who unanimously put a damper on my love for plyometrics and heavy impact. How was I supposed to get a workout? I just didn't know another way. Even when I embraced yoga and pilates, it was in addition to, and not instead of, my high impact antics. In spite o...

How Do You Diagnose Hypermobility?

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 00:18:35 +0100

Discussion Hypermobility can be seen in several different clinical entities. These include generalized joint hypermobility, joint hypermobility syndrome, Marfan syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and Osteogenesis Imperfecta. For adults, a Beighton score of at least 4 or 5 is used as a definition of hypermobility. For children a score of 5 or 6 is used as a definition. (see scoring system below). Generalized joint hypermobility is hypermobility with few or no symptoms. If they occur, knee symptoms are the most common. Joint hypermobility syndrome has hypermobility along with other symptoms such as pain, reduced muscle strength, and decreased proprioception and balance. Joint hypermobility syndrome is diagnosed by: 2 major criteria 1 major criteria and 2 minor criteria 4 minor criteria 2 m...



Is This Bursitis?

Mon, 03 Nov 2014 00:01:41 +0100

Discussion Bursa are the body’s bumper pads for tendons. They are a small synovial fluid-filled sac that lies between tendon and a bone or skin. There are more than 150 of them in the body. With bursitis there can be thickening and proliferation of the synovial lining, bursal adhesions, chalky deposits and villus formation. Trauma, repetitive stress, infection and autoimmune usually are the reasons for bursitis but idiopathic etiology also occurs. The differential diagnosis includes infection, arthritis, tendonitis, tendon or ligament injury, fracture or neoplasm. The usual signs and symptoms are localized pain and tenderness over a bursa, and if the bursa is superficial edema can be seen. Other specific signs and symptoms occur because of location. Bursitis is described as septic or...

Elbow Pain in Adults - 2014 review from Am Fam Physician

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 13:30:00 +0100

The elbow is a complex joint designed to withstand a wide range of dynamic exertional forces. The location and quality of elbow pain can generally localize the injury to one of the four anatomic regions: anterior, medial, lateral, or posterior. The history should include questions about the onset of pain, what the patient was doing when the pain started, and the type and frequency of athletic and occupational activities. What are the common causes?- Lateral and medial epicondylitis are two of the more common diagnoses and often occur as a result of occupational activities. Patients have pain and tenderness over the affected tendinous insertion that are accentuated with specific movements. - If lateral and medial epicondylitis treatments are unsuccessful, ulnar neuropathy and radial tunnel ...

What Causes Leg Pain?

Mon, 19 May 2014 00:08:03 +0100

Discussion “Growing pains” of the legs are a common complaint in children. Heterogeneous studies from 1928-2004 have found prevalence rates of 2.6-49.4% in children ages 4-19. The studies are heterogeneous because of time, location, and especially definition of growing pains. A study of 1445, 4-6 year olds in 2004 using a validated tool showed a prevalence rate of 36.9%. The definition of growing pains used by Peterson in the 2004 study is chronic “…intermittent (nonarticular) pains in both legs that generally occur late in the day or at night…” with a normal physical examination and laboratory testing (if any is done). The pain is in the thigh or calf muscles. The pain can occur over weeks or months. Patients should not have a history of trauma but bec...
