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

PT – PATELLAR TENDINOPATHY (JUMPER’S KNEE)
- MAYO CLINIC .
– Patellar tendinitis is an injury to the tendon connecting your kneecap (patella) to your shinbone.
– The patellar tendon works with the muscles at the front of your thigh to extend your knee so that you can kick, run and jump.
– Patellar tendinitis, also known as jumper’s knee, is most common in athletes whose sports involve frequent jumping — such as basketball and volleyball. However, even people who don’t participate in jumping sports can get patellar tendinitis.
– For most people, treatment of patellar tendinitis begins with physical therapy to stretch and strengthen the muscles around the knee.

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

- 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

- OSTEOARTHRITIS EXPLAINED . √
- ORTHOINFO . √
– The cartilage gradually wears away. As the cartilage wears away, it becomes frayed and rough, and the protective space between the bones decreases
– This can result in bone rubbing on bone, and produce painful bone spurs
