Medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS), commonly known shin splints, is a condition of the tibia (front bone- lower leg), and can be correlated with tendinopathy, periostitis, periosteal remodeling, and stress reaction of the tibia. 🤕🤕This condition is commonly found in athletes who make sudden starts and stops.⛹🏾⛹🏾 It is caused by repetitive stress-injury on the shin and its surrounding tissues and musculature.🔥🔥Medial shin splints are more common than anterior shin splints, where diffuse pain is along the medial border of the tibia (the junction of the lower third and upper two-thirds of the tibia), which usually decreases with warming up. Whereas anterior shin splints occur toward the outside, usually when the anterior and posterior leg muscles are disproportionate. 📚🔬MTSS is most likely to occur when the muscles and tendons are under excessive stress and do not have sufficient time to heal (which may result in a series of stress fractures). It’s important to rest and apply ice to the affected area during the acute phase of treatment. In order to avoid shin splints completely, wear comfortable shoes and add shock-absorbing insoles, stretch the Achilles tendon through eccentric calf stretches and strengthening exercises(see previous post on Achilles tendon injuries), and ensure a proper warm up. Vacuum (cupping) therapy and soft tissue therapy are also beneficial. (See previous post) Strengthening abdominal, gluteal and hip muscles will also improve running mechanics and prevent lower-extremity overuse injury. Improvement of flexibility, especially propioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) is important in rehab programs.🔑✔️ Hyperpronation of the subtalar joint is one of the most common and well-documented risk factors for MTSS, (top left image) therefore it is important to evaluate training errors and biomechanics abnormalities. ✅🔑

Tibialis Posterior Training
-----------
Yesterday, I explained the importance of tibialis posterior and it's relationship with various orthopedic issues including plantar fasciitis, stress fractures, tendinopathy and shin splints. If you have experienced any of these and have reason to believe that your foot control (uncontrolled pronation), may be a component of the problem, then give these a try.
••••••••••••
1️⃣ Banded open-chain plantarflexion & inversion
2️⃣ Weighted inversion
3️⃣ Single-leg calf raise
4️⃣ Banded arch doming
.
All of these exercise train the arch stabilization, plantarflexion and inversion actions of tibialis posterior. Start with 2-3 sets of 12-20 reps and increase resistance as needed.

Knee Mechanics‼️
----
We are so caught up with the fear of valgus motion that sometimes we forget to monitor simple sagittal plane movement. ⚠️ In this example, the athlete was under the impression that he was not supposed to let his knee move side to side. He told me he was purposely landing very stiff. He also told me he thought his knee was not supposed to go over his toes. 🤔 He was altering his mechanics based on improper, but well intentioned cueing. .
▪️▪️▪️▪️
The big problem I see here is a lack of forward knee travel. ↪️For plyometrics and movement, the knees need to go over toes. Furthermore, a small amount of hip internal rotation is normal during deceleration mechanics. Don't be the valgus police. 🚨 Teach your athletes to land fluidly and monitor form from multiple angles. Frontal plane is important, but it isn't everything.

[Staggered-Stance Romanian Deadlift]
.
What's it good for? Glutes and hamstrings.
.

Why staggered stance vs regular stance? Allows you to focus on one leg at a time and feel the exercise more.
.
Think about shooting your hips up and back, and not letting the front knee go forward. (The video I said you want knee to stay exactly where it is but after learning from @thibarmy, it's actually OK and will help you feel the stretch more if the knee travels back a little bit).

Rocking out the kinesiology tape again tonight. Got to love the octopus patterns to help bring out my bruise on ankle #physiotherapy #physio #kinesiology #rehab #tape #ankle #bruise #football #life #training #workinghard #onit

Not a bad place to be stuck in all day. Finalising website etc from my consulting office.

"Upper Cross Syndrome" is a condition that affects many individuals on a day to day basis. It's also a major factor that contributes to their re-occurring neck and back pains. This is most likely related to our daily activities such as: sitting at a computer, looking down at your phone, driving, sitting down to eat, and many other positions. What further exacerbates this condition is that many people only like to work out the "glam muscles" (pec major, biceps, anterior deltoids, and lats). Remember, whenever there is a tight muscle, there is a weakness on the antagonist muscle. For example, if you have internal rotation of your shoulders stemming from tight pec muscles, your rhomboids as well as your middle/lower traps are most likely weak. So don't neglect those back muscles!

На видео показано, как образуется фораминальная грыжа МПД.
Межпозвонковая грыжа бывает ПАРАМЕДИАННОЙ (чаще) и ФОРАМИНАЛЬНОЙ (реже). Парамедианная грыжа диска - характеризуется разрушением фиброзных колец и выпячиванием в сторону спинного мозгового канала, с небольшим смещением вправо или лево ( иногда в обе стороны сразу, посередине или очень редко по всей окружности ) . Поддаются лечению без операции.
Фораминальная грыжа диска - характеризуется выпячиванием в сторону фораминального отверстия и почти всегда терроризирует спиномозговой корешок , создавая иррадиирующие боли по ходу нерва, который сдавлен. Без операции не обойтись.
Грыжа диска - это всегда СЛЕДСТВИЕ каких то функциональных нарушений. Если найти ПРИЧИНУ этих изменений, то можно создать условия , при которых Грыжа МПД уменьшится, пропадёт или перестанет мешать и создавать проблемы.
Берегите себя!

Six months out. Low bar for seven.

If you guys want a good strategic super set for leg extensions check this out! First part is doing leg extensions leaned forward then finishing by leaning back normally. My reasoning behind doing it this way is this - by leaning forward you're shortening your rectus femoris, which is one of your quad muscles. A unique characteristic of this quad muscle is that it crosses the front of the hip, acting as a hip flexor. By leaning forward you are actively shortening the left and right rectus femoris, ultimately putting it in a weaker position to assist during leg extensions. This makes the exercise much harder so you exhaust your quads in a weaker position first, then lean back and continue the exercise in a stronger position. Great finisher for leg day 👊🏼👊🏼

Kneecap Pain Series
----------
I have had a number of questions recently about pain around the kneecap (patellofemoral pain syndrome) and what can be done to help this condition.
••••••
First, a bit of background. Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (PFPS) is a multi-faceted pain condition, like many pain problems, and can vary from person to person. In general though, PFPS presents as pain at the front of the knee that is aggravated with activities that compress the patellofemoral joint (joint between patella and femur) such as squatting, climbing stairs, running, kneeling, prolonged sitting and so on.
••••••
Now, contrary to what many providers will tell you, pain in this region does not necessarily mean something is wrong with the cartilage of your knee (termed chondromalacia) or any other tissue. In many cases, the pain is really just thought to be a result of the nervous system being overly protective. Additionally, even if you do have signs of degeneration to structures of the patellofemoral joint, this does not mean you will for sure have pain. Large percentages of painless individuals show signs of degeneration, so let's not stress too much about what an imaging study might show us. Remember, YOU ARE NOT YOUR MRI. Imaging tools are useful, but they only tell part of the story.
••••••
So, what do you do for PFPS? Well, this obviously varies person to person, but there are a few general interventions that work for many people. These usually revolve around modifying stress on the joint, learning to move the leg differently with certain activities and strengthening the muscles (mainly glutes) that control alignment of the lower extremity.
••••••
I will cover several exercises to try in the next post. Stay tuned!
