How to treat anterior knee pain with Kurt Lisle

Anterior knee pain can occur in your elite sports patients right through to office workers and weekend warriors. In this podcast with Kurt Lisle, we discuss anterior knee pain, the causes, how to diagnose the source of the pain, and the best ways to treat and rehabilitate these patients.

Kurt Lisle is the Australian Socceroos Physio and co-owner of The Knee Joint Physio in Queensland. Kurt and I discussed acute knee injuries on the Physio Edge podcast in episode 29, and I really wanted to get Kurt back on the podcast to discuss the anterior knee.

In this fantastic, detailed episode of the Physio Edge podcast, Kurt and I explore:

  • Subjective clues that give you ideas about differential diagnosis
  • Fat pad - location of pain, activities that irritate
  • Patellofemoral joint - aggravating activities and DDx
  • Patellar tendon - subjective clues, location of pain
  • Objective examination of the anterior knee
  • Tests for PFJ
  • Functional tests first or examination on the treatment table?
  • Palpation of the anterior knee
  • Fat pad palpation and tests
  • Is the fat pad tender medial and laterally, or can it be tender only on one aspect
  • Neuromuscular patterning
  • Squat and one leg squat examination
  • What causes “catching” pain on movement
  • Chondral defects - identifying
  • Is there value in the grind test
  • When to refer for MRI and other imaging
  • Important factors that may contribute to AKP
  • Gait contributors to AKP
  • Treatment of PFJ pain
  • Modifying PFJ aggravating activities
  • Using EMG
  • Quadricep rehabilitation and strengthening
  • When to incorporate squats into your rehabilitation program
  • The role of taping for PFJ or fat pad irritation
  • Red flags causing knee pain

PE #030 CrossFit Injuries with Antony Lo

CrossFit is a very popular form of improving strength and fitness, and CrossFit athletes have a variety of common injuries. Training errors and the athlete’s biomechanics often contribute to these injuries, and identifying incorrect biomechanics and other contributing elements in their training is often the key to helping your patients recover from injury, train pain free and importantly for your patients, ultimately get stronger and fitter.

In episode 30 of the Physio Edge podcast, David Pope discusses CrossFit injuries, training, biomechanics and injury recovery with Antony Lo. Antony is a Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist with a number of clinics within CrossFit gyms across Sydney, and a large proportion of his patient population are CrossFit athletes.

In this podcast Antony and David explore:

  • The most common injuries in CrossFit
  • Factors that contribute to injuries in the Shoulders, Neck, Back, Knees, and lower limb
  • Specific exercises performed in CrossFit
    • Squats
    • Pullups/Chinups
    • Pushups
    • Overhead exercises
    • Double unders
    • Overhead squats
    • Snatch
    • Running
  • Ideal biomechanics for each of these movement
  • Common movement errors and ways to assess each movement
  • Rest from training vs continue training
  • Manual therapy on cross fit athletes
  • Modifying training loads
  • Rhabdomyolisis
  • Urinary continence while training
  • Advice for Physios treating CrossFit athletes

Shoulder pain patients often have poor scapula control. Is their shoulder pain caused by poor scapula control, or is their scapula dysfunction caused by shoulder pain? When your patients present with shoulder pain, should your focus be on scapula control, glenohumeral control, or treatment of the neck and thorax? 

In this podcast, David Pope talks to Ann Cools, a Physiotherapist and Head of Education for Rehabilitation Sciences and Physiotherapy at Ghent University in Belgium, and is also the founding member and president (2010–2012) of EUSSER - European Society of Shoulder and Elbow Rehabilitation. We discuss in detail assessment of the scapula, the role of the scapula in shoulder pain and how to retrain unruly scapulae.

Other topics covered in this podcast include:

  • What we currently know from the research about the role, movement and control of 

  • the scapula

  • Scapula dyskinesis - what is it

  • Static vs dynamic assessment of the scapula

Gymnastics places some fairly unique demands on fairly young bodies. In episode 26 of the Physio Edge podcast, I discuss these demands with Kingsley Gibson, a Sports Titled Physiotherapist that has worked with Australian Diving, Synchronised Swimming, Shooting and Hockey teams at a number of Commonwealth and Olympic games, and works with elite gymnasts on a daily basis. For his services to gymnastics, in 2000 the Commonwealth awarded Kingsley with a Sports Services Medal. So Kingsley has a lot of experience to draw on, and we got into detail on a number of topics.

In this podcast we discuss:

* Common injury patterns in the various gymnastic disciplines

* Important factors to consider when returning gymnasts to training and competition

* Factors that can influence your gymnasts treatment outcome

* Communication with parents and coaches

* How to best implement load management strategies

* Various motor control patterns in gymnasts that contribute to injuries

* Screening gymnasts

* Designing specific upper limb rehab programs

* Lower limb and lumbar spine rehab programs

* Management of acute vs chronic injuries

* Stress reactions in the Lumbar spine

* Apophyseal injuries - hip flexors, hamstrings, calcaneus (Sever’s) and Osgood-Schlatter’s

* Management of apophyseal injuries compared to tendinopathy

* Motor control/“stability” patterns in gymnasts

* When to order imaging

* Growth plate injury management - particularly in the wrist

* The effect of other factors such as training surfaces and equipment on injury

PE #025 Groin Assessment with Dr Kristian Thorborg

PE025 Groin assessment with Dr Kristian Thorborg

How can you identify the reason your patient has groin pain and the structures that may be causing it? Groin pain is one of the most common issues in a lot of sports, particularly the football codes, and in episode 25 of the Physio Edge podcast, David Pope talks to Dr Kristian Thorborg about assessment of the groin.

Some of the topics we discuss on this podcast include:

Types of groin injuries Identifying and diagnosing groin pain and injury Groin vs hip pain Tests you can perform to identify the irritated or painful structures The relevance of diagnostic imaging, and when to refer for this Hip and Groin Outcome Score (HAGOS) Using the HAGOS in your clinic Adductor related groin pain Hip flexor related groin pain Abdominal related groin pain The hip joint Pubic symphysis Sports Hernias Testing hip strength Assessment of function And much more!

I had Kristian on the Physio Edge podcast for episode 21 discussing hamstring injury prevention, and wanted to get him back to discuss his other area of special interest - the groin. I am sure you will get as much out of this episode with Kristian as I did, and you will be all over diagnosis of groin pain by the end of the episode. Enjoy!

PE 024 Thoracic Ring Approach with Dr Linda-Joy (LJ) Lee

The thorax is often considered stiff and stable by Physiotherapists and manual therapists, and precious little of our undergrad or postgrad training incorporating or seeing the need for motor control of this area.

In episode 24 of the Physio Edge podcast, LJ Lee and David Pope explore the function of the thorax, the impact the thorax can have, not only on thoracic pain, but also on other parts of the body. We discuss the Thoracic Ring Approach (TRA) created by LJ, which incorporates manual techniques to assess and treat the thoracic rings, and integrates motor control training for this area. In this podcast you will learn:

What bones and joints make up a “Thoracic ring”

Is the thorax inherently stiff?

What is ideal motor control of the thorax?

How can listeners identify non-optimal control of the thorax in their patients

How can motor control of the thorax be trained?

Identifying articular/joint restriction vs neuromuscular factors interfering with normal thorax movement

How can the thorax impact on other areas of the body eg the hip

When is manipulation of the thorax ideal?

What are some guidelines for manipulation of the thorax?

and much more. Download this podcast free from iTunes, or listen on the link below
