Why You Should Request An ACL Functional Test Following ACL Surgery!
You recently had surgery, endured pain, swelling, tightness and discomfort in your knee. You have pushed yourself through months of rehab and all with thoughts in your head about when you can step back on the field. As your mind comes back to reality, you refocus to your surgeon saying, “your good to go if you have no questions for me.” Well this is your chance to speak up. I am telling you from experience I have seen to many athletes returned too soon, without proper guidance and readiness. Three things happen to these athletes:
They continue to play, but are never the same
They injure their opposite knee within a year
They reinjure their same knee
What is Runner’s Knee?
Runner’s knee – a broad term used to describe pain in the front and around the kneecap – is arguably the most common injury among runners. Typically this is a repetitive strain injury and can refer to several different diagnoses, most commonly patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) and iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS).
What causes Runner’s Knee?
Kneecap is too high
Weakness in quadriceps and hip muscles
Tightness in hamstrings, ITB and hip muscles
Poor foot support or flat feet
Excessive training or overuse
Runner’s Knee Treatment Options
Runner’s knee can be a very frustrating injury for runners to manage, especially when it impacts training for your next marathon.
Medical Treatment Options:
Running gait analysis: If running is the main activity that caused knee pain, having your gait pattern professionally analyzed using high speed camera’s can pinpoint any biomechanical stresses that may be contributing to knee pain.
Orthotic’s: Collapsed arches or overpronation can create stress at the knee joint, therefore using orthotic’s can control motion at the foot and stress at the knee.
