Knee Pain With Exercise SURPRISING CAUSE and HOW TO FIX IT
What's up, guysé Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.COM. Let's talk today about knee pain. If you've been lifting for any length of time,likely you've had some sort of knee pain or might have knee pain in the future if you'renot doing the right things. Guys, knee pain can debilitate your leg workouts.I know. I've suffered from it, and I know what it can do to your legs when you're tryingto squat and especially squat heavy. So, what I want to do today is first of allcover a couple of the reasons what might be causing your knee pain
because that's going to be important to understandthe difference, and then show you one that I think is really common especially for guysthat train and lift weights. So, if we look here, we've got our boy Raymond,and we've got our skeleton, so what you'll see is that in the knee we've got a lot ofdifferent sources of pain. Now you guys have probably heard about ACLpain and MCL pain and LCL, right. Well we're talking about tears really because those are ligaments that get injuredsports most often. The ACL and PCL are inside the knee.
The LCL and MCL are going to be on the insideand outside of the knee, and basically, that's just one source of injury but we've also gotosteoarthritic changes that can happen where you actually get degenerative changeson the bone, the bone on bone area, or on the underside of the patella here that grindsup against the femur. We could talk about that in a second. We alsohave meniscus issues. Guys talk about that. It's the cushion between the two bones here,the tibia and the femur, that gives us that space between the jointthat can wear down or tear. But I find that the most common injury that we get when wetrain,
our inflammatory conditions from overuse ofthe patellar tendon. So, the patellar tendon, this is what you're seeing right here,ok. And what it does is, it runs over the patella,here it holds it in place, and you can get inflammation of this a lot of times causingpatellofemoral issues, we've heard that before, and it impacts thetracking of the patella when your knee goes into flexion extension. So, as we flex the knee and extend the knee,you want normal mechanics of the patella so you get this glide.
And it glides right in this groove right here.You can see that it's supposed to glide right in this groove. But what will happen is, it starts to getout of position. Well, guess whaté This isn't a knee issue. I've talked about this before,this is not a knee issue. The knee is a train, and this is its track.Here, and here. So guess what happens when the track gets twistedé The knee in the train goes flying off thetrack. So, when you start looking and focusing all your efforts on the knee pain and tryingto, you know, cure the patellofemoral issues,
or try to cure your patellar tendonitis, andyou're not paying any attention to the track, you're way off track. So, what you want to do is, you want to startlooking for the source and the cause of your knee pain because most often, 99 percent ofthe time, the source of that is going to be somewhereelse. And when we look at this, it's either going to be the track at the bottom, whichis going to be controlled by your ankle and foot, or, the track at the top which is going tobe caused by, or controlled by the muscles
Diagnosis and Treatment of the Sacroiliac Joint Charles Harvey MD
My name is Charles Fredrick Harvey, MD. I'ma neurosurgeon in Kankakee, Illinois, employed by Riverside Medical Group. I'm going to betalking about the diagnosis and treatment of the sacroiliac joint. I first became interestedin the sacroiliac joint as a spine surgeon because I had patients coming and tellingme that they had pain in their back going down their leg. I couldn't account for thatpain easily with the MRI findings that I saw. The sacroiliac joint is the main joint connectingthe spine with the pelvis. It allows energy transfer between the torso and the legs.I see three major categories of patients with sacroiliac pain. One category is patientswho've had trauma, for example, a fall on
the buttock, a twisting injury or even a caraccident. A second category is women who have pain that's persistent in the back of thepelvis after pregnancy. In my personal experience, out of my first 100 patients with sacroiliacsurgery, 24 of them have previous lumbar spine surgery. About 20% of patients who come totheir with lowback pain actually have pain coming from the sacroiliac joint. Studieshave shown that patients who have persistent back pain after lumbar surgery frequentlyhave sacroiliac joint disorders as a source of their pain.Patients with sacroiliac joint pain have disability and pain comparable to lumbar stenosis, kneearthritis or hip arthritis. The degree of
disability can be worse than asthma, heartfailure or COPD. The diagnosis of sacroiliac joint pain requires care and attention. Thisisn't something where simple xrays or an MRI or a CAT scan clearly demonstrate thediagnosis. Symptoms of SI joint pain can include lowback pain radiating into the buttock orleg, hip pain, groin pain, a feeling that the leg is giving away, trouble with sleepingor pain rolling over in bed, trouble with sitting especially putting pressure on theaffected side and pain going from sitting to standing.The pattern of pain can be similar between facet pain, sciatica, disk herniation or sacroiliacjoint pain. Careful physical exam by a trained
physician can help determine whether painis coming from the hip, the low back or the sacroiliac joint. Some patients find thattheir pain is worse when they stand on the affected leg or with prolonged walking. Otherpatients complained of pain with sexual intercourse or changing positions. Patients sometimesdescribe that their pain is better if they shift their weight away from the affectedside, they lie on the unaffected side and some patients have relief from a back braceor sacroiliac belt. A set of five physical examination maneuversthat put specific stress on the sacroiliac joint help us narrow down the diagnosis anddemonstrate that the sacroiliac joint is the
cause of the pain. If the patient's history,physical examination and pain provocation tests suggest the SI joint is the source ofthe pain then we consider diagnostic SI injections. A diagnostic injection is done under Xrayguidance to make sure that the injection is in the right place. We use Lidocaine or Novocainelike when you go to the dentist's office. If there is 50 to 75 percent improvement inthe pain, even briefly, that's the sign that the sacroiliac joint is the source of thepain. The patient is asked to keep track of theirpain before the procedure and after and sometimes keep a pain diary for the first few hoursafter the injection. If they have significant
improvement then we like to think that's thespot that's causing the pain. Most patients with sacroiliac pain do not need surgery.The range of treatment options available to a patient include medications, physical therapy,external support like a brace or a sacroiliac belt, therapeutic SI injections where Cortisoneis added, radio frequency ablation is another possible treatment that is given by some painmanagement physicians. Traditional open sacroiliac fusion is a bigsurgery, relatively bloody and has a long recovery. Recent advances in minimally invasivesacroiliac fusion offer a new option. The iFuse implant system is a technique for minimallyinvasivestabilization and fusion of the sacroiliac
