ITBS – ILIOTIBIAL BAND SYNDROME


  • PHYSIOPEDIA .
    – The ITB is a thickening of the Deep Fascia (Fascia Latae) of the Thigh; the TFL inserts into this fibrous band tensing it
    – Usually presents with pain and/or tenderness on palpation of the lateral aspect of the knee, superior to the joint line and inferior to the lateral femoral epicondyle
    – It is considered a non-traumatic overuse injury, often seen in runners, and is often concomitant with underlying weakness of hip abductor muscles

PFPS – PATELLOFEMORAL PAIN SYNDROME (RUNNER’S KNEE)


  • PATELLOFEMORAL PAIN SYNDROME: A QUICK REFERENCE .
  • ORTHOINFO .
    – PFPS is a broad term used to describe pain in the front of the knee and around the patella, or kneecap
    – Called “runner’s knee” or “jumper’s knee” it is common in people who play sports—particularly females and young adults—but PFPS can occur in nonathletes
    – The pain and stiffness caused by PFPS can make it difficult to climb stairs, kneel down, and perform other everyday activities
    – Many things may contribute to PFPS. Problems with alignment of the kneecap and overuse from vigorous athletics or training are often significant factors
    – Symptoms are often relieved with conservative treatment, such as changes in activity levels or a therapeutic exercise program

KNEE BURSITIS


  • ORTHOINFO .
    – Bursae are small, jelly-like sacs containing a small amount of fluid, positioned b/n bones and soft tissues, acting as cushions to help reduce friction.
    – Prepatellar bursitis is inflammation in front of the kneecap (patella)
    – When the bursa becomes irritated and produces too much fluid it swells and puts pressure on adjacent parts of the knee.
    – It is often caused by pressure from constant kneeling or a direct blow to the front of knee
    – Nonsurgical treatment is usually effective as long as the bursa is simply inflamed and not infected
