Knee Pain Heidelberg
Knee injuries can manifest as a result of various factors including regular wear and tear, excessive use, or direct injury. These issues commonly arise from sports or recreational activities where the knees are subjected to stress and strain. Whether caused by gradual degeneration or sudden trauma, knee injuries can lead to pain and discomfort that affect daily life and physical performance. At Advanced Health Chiropractic in Heidelberg, our team of experienced professionals is dedicated to diagnosing and treating knee injuries effectively. We offer personalised care to help you recover and regain optimal knee function.
Patella Tendonitis, often referred to as ‘jumper’s knee,’ involves inflammation and irritation of the patella tendon, which connects the patella (kneecap) to the tibial tuberosity on the shin bone. This tendon aids in executing a kicking motion by transmitting force from the quadriceps muscles across the knee joint. Athletes engaged in repetitive jumping activities are particularly susceptible to this condition.
Causes of Patella Tendonitis:
Patella Tendonitis is primarily caused by repetitive overuse and strain on the tendon, preventing the body from healing the minor damage incurred during these activities. This condition is often characterized by pain concentrated around the tendon, accompanied by tenderness and swelling. Individuals might also observe a crunching noise during movement. Activities like jumping, kneeling, and kicking can worsen the symptoms of Patella Tendonitis.
Treatment of Patella Tendonitis
The treatment of Patella Tendonitis often involves following the RICE protocol, which stands for rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Resting and avoiding activities that exacerbate the condition are crucial to initiate the healing process. As the treatment progresses, focusing on strengthening the quadriceps muscles and associated tendons becomes essential. This can be achieved through specialized eccentric muscle strengthening programs aimed at promoting healing and recovery.
A meniscus tear is a prevalent injury that impacts the knee joint. The meniscus comprises ‘C’ shaped discs composed of durable fibrocartilage. These structures are situated on the tibial plateau, between the tibia (shin bone) and the femur (thigh bone). Their role is vital in distributing weight and cushioning impacts within the knee joint. Each knee contains two menisci, contributing to joint stability and function.
Patella Tracking Syndrome
Patella Tracking Syndrome, a frequent injury among runners, involves the misalignment of the patella caused by muscle imbalances around the knee. Commonly, the patella is slightly displaced from its optimal position, resulting in symptoms such as pain while squatting, descending stairs, removing shoes, kicking, and jumping.
Key conservative treatments aimed at realigning the patella include Dry Needling (Musculoskeletal Acupuncture), stretching of the iliotibial band (ITB), dynamic leg swings, and targeted quadriceps strengthening. The emphasis is often on strengthening the inner muscle fibers of the quadriceps, specifically the Vastus Medialis muscle. These methods constitute the gold standard approaches for addressing Patella Tracking Syndrome.
The foremost and widely acknowledged conservative treatments to address Patella Tracking Syndrome include:
- Dry Needling (Musculoskeletal Acupuncture)
- Chiropractic leg adjustments
- ITB stretching
- Dynamic leg swings
- Quadriceps strengthening, with special attention to the inner muscle fibers of the quadricep, particularly the Vastus Medialis.
