Ask a med student who works at a sportstraumatology derpartment anything.
If i cant answer your questions i will ask one of the professors/researchers/doctors in the office nxt to me.
i have celiac & dont eat gluten anymore, but my doctor told me i cant get proper nutrition from food anymore since i damaged myself for to long.
does this sound right?
just tell me to hop on the juice senpai
when i do pic related, it hurts on the inside of the leg i'm stretching, like on my adductors or the inside of my groin.
How do i fix this, i feel like it hinders my squatting form.
Just googled squat plug. Not quite sure about the medical benefits of using butt plugs during squats
the easy answer. Whatever feels best for you. Dont know too much about this. I've always done high bar.
So. As you probably know. Coeliac disease is an autoimmune disease where your intestines are damaged. Since the intestines are where you primarily absorb your nutrients, it means that you will be less able to absorb nutrients. Basicly. Imagine that you eat 100 grams of protein. I can probably absorb 98 grams. The rest i will shit out. Depending on the degree of damage, that YOU have, you might be able to absorb 70 grams (random numbers for illustration. I dont know the damage done to you).
This does not mean that you cant get proper nutrition. Just that you absorb less. Its just something you have to deal with. Eat some more, learn what works for you.
I've got runner's knee. Should I do an hour cardio (run) a day like I do or should I find an alternative? Is it bad to to squats with a knee like that? Are there any treatments/supplements that could help me?
This is quite a hard question to answer. It sounds like hip impingement, but there can be a lot of different reasons for this, and its basicly impossible to give you an answer over the internet
Could you specify the pain some more? How close to yo
Just asked a hand surgeon about this. Wrists arent my speciality.
I presume you're talking about a schapolunary rupture in the wrist? When did you get the injury? The problem with SL-tears is that we generally get the patients in the clinic a couple of weeks, or months, after the injury, meaning that a direct acute repair, which works quite well, is out of the question.
If you havent seen an orthopedic surgeon, you should. Your general practitioner probably isnt knowledged enough to say if you need surgery.
I will admit that i'm not quite sure i will become an orthopedic surgeon or work at a sportstraumatology department when im a doctor. It seems too boring. I have though alot about going into rheumatology or hematology
What are your lifts?
What books do you have to read in medschool?
Whats the job called that makes drugs like testosterone? I know synthetic chemists but is there anything more specific? How is that drug made?
the pain is only on the left side, i can do it with my right leg just fine. It feels like something is blocking the movement, if i use my hand to push my leg further the pain gets too intense.
it feels like the adductors but its not a muscular pain, its more like the tendons feel blocked. I also feel a little pain in the left side of my lower back when doing this so maybe it has smth to do with the Psoas Major?
thanks for your answer so far.
Of course you can! It obviously depends on whether or not you have an injury that needs rehabilitation
Just to be sure. Runners knee are on the outside of the knee. Jumpers knee are on the front of the knee, just below the knee cap. It is runners, and not jumpers knee you have, correct?
The most common reason for runners knee is the tractus illiotibialis (illiotibial band/IT band). Its a long tendon on the outside of your leg. Whenever you bend and stretch your knee, which you do everytime you run fx., the IT-band slides over a bony prominence on the knee. This generally isnt a problem, but if you IT-band is tight it can be a problem. Sometimes the reason can be that your feet alignes in a weird way when you run, but its impossible for me to diagnose that over the internet.
Basicly. The treatment is boring and sucks. Tune down on running for some months. Lets say you are capable of running 20 Km 3 times a week. Now you run 6-8 Km 3 times a week. Also you should stretch your IT-band every day. You can find info/pics/videos on the stretches on the internet. Theres a lot of that.
There are qualified doctors (believe it or not) that visit this site.
Why does your junior opinion matter enough to start your own thread?
I basicly have arthrosis in my right knee so my lifts arent too impressive.
Squat: 160kg (ass to the grass)
Deadlift: 180 Kg
benchpress - no max. Have done 10 x 100kg
Phew. theres alot. Any specific topic?
I honestly dont know about testosterone-synthesis
i've started stretching and mobility work some weeks ago to better my squat and because i started with oly lifts.
this pain might come from using hip drive desu because then i feel it in my back.
okay about 4 months ago when I was doing my last set of pull ups. out of nowhere I felt terrible pain on my left elbow. with the little money I had i went to the doctor and he said it was golfer's elbow. told me to ice it and wear arm sleeve. for a month I did nothing on my left arm. and recently I tried back doing it again and now I feel pain in my scapular when I do benching and still some pain in my elbow.
I've been doing those band exercises(tricep pushdowns 100 reps) and external/internal shoulder
but it's still giving me pain when I attempt to lift with it. sick of just having to do upper body with my right arm atm :(
How bout a pharmacology book? Like what different drugs do to you?
I mean we can google everything but having it all in one place would be cool.
From like common cold medicines to neurodegenerative diseases.
Sometimes when I strain my left arm, it "clicks," just above the elbow, it doesn't hurt, but it feels almost like tiny bubbles are popping. There's also a strange, soft lump that goes crosswise across the arm about where it "clicks".
You got any idea what it could be? Am I going to die?
Because im the head of the students sportsmedicine union, i arrange joint examination courses for med students, im a researcher at a sporstraumatology department, i have been to several sportsmedicine/orthopedic surgery congresses and held presentations at them before.
Also: i can ask people around me if needed
Do you have any pain if you sprint or doing leg adductions? try sitting on a chair, put a pillow between your legs and press your knees together (as in contraction your adductors heavily). Does that cause pain?
I hope so
I'm recovering from an anal fissure, and it's almost healed up. When can I go back to squats a diddles? Whenever I no longer feel any kind of pain or discomfort from the fissure? It's hard to tell on a daily basis how close I am to never being bothered by it again.
Could you specify where your elbow and scauplar pain are located?
Ahhh. In that case, i would advise you to get an app called drug dictionary. Its free. Unless youre specifically looking for a book?
Could you specify where it pops? It sounds like snapping elbow (its not as bad as it sounds).
For the past three workouts, my shoulders have been hurting from doing cleans and power cleans. To the point where I couldn't jerk or press.
After doing curls with shoulder flexion at the top, the pain eased out. But when I cleaned again, the pain came back.
I've been doing cleans for months and never had any issues.
No other exercise gives me shoulder pain.
Any ideas what that might be? The pain is around the front of my shoulders.
>Could you specify where your elbow and scauplar pain are located?
elbow pain is on the outside pic related
scapular pain is right next to the anterior of my deltoid sometimes feel nerve pain in my neck
sorry if i'm not making sense :(
Where im from, Sportsmedicine isnt a speciality (like fx neurology, hematology and orthopedic surgery is). Its a course you take after you have become a specialist. It is usually rheumatologists, orthopedic surgeons and sometimes cardiologist who takes the sportsmedicine degree.
The pay therefor greatly depends on what youre going to do. Are you going to be the doctor for a major football club = crazy money in da bank, or are you going to be a orthopedic surgeon who just generally sees young people with sports injuries = nice pay, but not that crazy.
Its really hard to say since it varies so much
I have no idea, and none of the doctors in my department knows about this.
Does the pain sometimes shoot down your leg?
try doing stretch in the picture below. Does it simulate the pain youre feeling?
>The pay therefor greatly depends on what youre going to do. Are you going to be the doctor for a major football club = crazy money in da bank, or are you going to be a orthopedic surgeon who just generally sees young people with sports injuries = nice pay, but not that crazy.
Hadn't thought about where I would end up yet. I'd like to end up where the money is crazy. I really have no morals. I'd give a crazy football player dilaudid no problem.
Try to do this test. Lets say you want to test your right shoulder. Place your left hand ontop of your right shoulder, and make sure you dont lift elevate shoulders (as in, make sure you dont contract your traps and do a shrug). Then do a quick lateral raise with your right hand. Does that cause pain?
Low bar: 150kg
high bar: 170kg
I dont quite understand the scapular pain. Could you give me a picture?
It does sound like medial epicondylitis (golfers elbow). You might be wondering why youre experiencing pain in your neck. It seems weird, just like patients with kidney stones sometimes get pain in their right scapula. It has something to do with your nervous system. Imagine that the nerve which registers pain from your elbow goes all the way from your elbow --> shoulder --> neck --> into your back. You get pain in your elbow, and the nerve registers it as both elbow, shoulder and neck pain.
is it around your medial epicondyle? (google it)
yes, scapolunary (i think, partial rupture, as my other wrist is similarly "unstable" without injury)
Are there exercises that can fix the instability? Something like strenghtening the radioulnar ligaments?
I presume it doesnt cause you pain? If you start to feel pain, you should go see a doctor. If not:
the crack could be similar to when you crack your knuckles. If it only cracks on rep 1-2, its cool. If it cracks on every set, try doing a bit of warm-up and stretches before. That should eliminate it. Its called cavitation
all the scoops.
>is it around your medial epicondyle?
no. it's about here. It doesn't feel like it has anything to do with the elbow, but I suppose it could be a sensation that's radiating from the elbow.
Hey brother. Thanks in advance for the counsel.
I don't do strength training - just stair-running 3x a week for 1 hour each. Even though that alone isn't easy, I'm always cranking up the intensity (i.e. sprinting up while skipping steps half the time) and I definitely feel the pain for the next 2-3 days. A good kind of pain such that it lets me know I put a lot of effort in and it's not chronic or anything - it goes away at the same pace.
What should I be aware of in the future if stair-running is my preferred approach to fitness? Any sort of comment on it? I'll take it.
Asked the hand surgeon again:
Did you go to a doctor when you had your injury? did you get a cast/brace on your hand? did the doctor check that nothing is broken (mainly the scaphoid bone)?
This is merely to ensure that youre not trying to train something that shouldnt be trained
went to a hand surgeon, months after the injury. He diagnosed an instability in the left (injured wrist), while the right wrist was also pretty lax.
No pain during compression, very slight pain with traction and radial/ulnar shift.
Should i train my pronator quadratus, my hand extensors/flexors etc?
Alright. Its not snapping elbow then.
In that picture, youre saying that theres some sort of soft lump going across your arm? like. right where the circle is?
Also. Does it cause pain?
Trying to diagnose hip pain over the internet is kinda hard. The stretch is for the psoas major which often causes problems. Just keep doing it every day
The pain is probably just DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness). Very normal.
There is definitely 1 thing. Run up stairs, dont run down. Running up stairs/hills is absolutely amazing. You dont get the same stress and injuries as when you run downstairs.
Interval training where you sprint up the stairs, walk down, sprint up, walk down etc is really fun aswell. If i were you, i would do 2 x 30 sec of IT-band stretching (iliotibial band) beforehand to ensure you dont get runners knee. You can google the stretching. Runners knee is a common injury, and it takes no time to prevent it
But basicly. If youre running up stairs, youre good to go.
How did you hurt your wrist? where is the pain located? what exercises causes you pain?
Did he not tell you what to do?
The general rehabilitation for many wrist injuries, like this is:
1) Get full range of motion in both your fingers, wrist and elbow. Its mainly wrist ROM you should focus on, obviously but the decrease in ROM sometimes transitions into other joints.
2) do strength exercises for all movement-planes in the wrist: meaning: both flexion, extension, radial/ulnar deviation & pronation/supination.
How do you do this? google wrist exercises. Theres no holy grail for this injury, im afraid. its just all-around wrist training
im out in 15 min
>In that picture, youre saying that theres some sort of soft lump going across your arm? like. right where the circle is?
>Also. Does it cause pain?
Yeah- it's very subtle, so it took a while for me to notice it, but if I run my fingers lightly over the arm, there's a slight indent and then ridge that isn't on the other arm.
It doesn't hurt at all. Neither the lump or the clicking.
I've been running down the stairs. I'll be mindful not to in the future. Would be beneficial anyway to reserve the energy for better sprints upward. Thanks for the stretching tip as well.
Lastly, this'll probably be a stupid-as-fuck question, but I have these blueish veins that are readily visible not just throughout my arms but all of my body. As I already mentioned, I don't do weights.
But I can go to a current-body-thread and I don't really see anyone with a prominently defined colour - just prominently defined/popping out veins. (And again, mine are everywhere, not just arms.) Is it something to be worried about? What's causing it?
I'll probably feel very silly once I get an answer and it's probably nothing but I've got to ask since it's been on my mind a long time. It's not new - they've been like this for as long as I can remember.
my knees have started doing some popping noise since I squat heavier weight
I went to a rheumatologist who said my knees were fine but I'm afraid of hurting them since the noise got bigger and bigger so I don't squat anymore
should I be worried or continue squatting?
injured my knee at full flexion 7 months ago with bodyweight somehow, wasn't too bad but i tried squatting 3 days after and it was too bad when squatting.
i've reinjured it a couple of times since trying to get back in to exercise and it was always pretty bad the first few days but then always goes pretty quick, no swelling and doesn't really hurt when i squat unless it's fairly specific (although i always reinjured it squatting), like bodyweight patella tendon rehab exercise on the decline board i can feel it
im thinking either plica or meniscus, im gonna give it a few months and not reinjure it this time, but i'm wondering if you have any ideas what it could be, it's a fairly sharp pain inside the knee (inner side of right knee cap)
Is there anything specific I should be doing/paying attention to when squatting considering I have genu valgum?
I have some sort of bad tendonitis with my elbow that won't go away. I've done RICE, light exercise to get the blood going, but it just won't go away.
The pain is directly in the middle of my elbow on the back side. I can feel the inflamed connected tendon. How do I remedy this shit without taking a lot of time off the gym?
Its cool. Its more stupid not to ask.
In your blood, you have hemoglobin. It gets pumped out of your heart filled with oxygen. The hemoglobin-oxygen complex absorbs all of the blue/green light, so theres only red light left = red blood. When the hemoglobin gives the oxygen to your tissues (muscles fx) there are fewer hemoglobins attached to oxygen. Therefore less blue/green is absorbed by hemoglobin. That gives these oxygen-less veins their blue'ish colour.
Its completely normal. If your very prominent blue'ish veins were due to a disease, you would not be sitting on /fit. You would be in a hospital
IThe reason that the other people have prominent veins that arent blue might be due to the lighting in the picture, or something. I've seen quite alot of arms, and that picture looks completely normal to me. Obviously you have very visible veins, but you should be happy about that. Some girls love it because touching veiny forearms feels like touching a cock.
Many thanks once more. I just was hoping it was an extension of a lifestyle involving healthy-eating and cardio rather than a consequence of some sort of negligence of which I am unaware.
Have a nice month.
Even I can tell you that (and his answer will corroborate mine): bulking and cutting is retarded and a phenomenon exclusive to the retarded bodybuilding community.
There's a set amount of lean tissue physically possible to build per week. It only makes sense to eat more (and not by a huge amount) on the days you lift and try to reach that lean tissue goal.
What doesn't make sense is pointlessly gaining fat. Use the calories on the days when you need it. Don't use them on the days you don't.
These people gaining 60 pounds in a year who want to go on to cut a huge fraction of it just to look good could do what I suggested and never have had to look bad while still making linear lean tissue gains.
If id start my 13 year old brother on gear what bad would happen to him? thinking of only like 250/w of test.
If its that it might fuck his development up then what if i wait until hes finishing puberty?
I had an inguinal hernia repaired with mesh several years ago and I've noticed it aches whenever I squat heavy. Is there anything I can do to keep myself safe or is that one exercise I should back off from and just do leg press?
Can I compete in boxing with a messed up back? Got scoliosis and a bunch of malpositions, recently also sciatica. Thing is though I started boxing and I've never had any problems with my back during practice so I'm thinking about getting more serious. Intuitively I assumed doing a full-contact sport isn't the smartest thing to do for someone with back problems, but right now I can't really come up with a reason for why boxing would be worse for me than for other people.
I have to pass on that one. Neither I, or the doctors, know about that.
whats the cause of your enlarged liver?
also. working out 4-5 hours a day seems pretty crazy unless youre an olympic weightlifter
The majority of doctors with a diploma in sportsmedicine are rheumatologists, so you can be sure that he knows ALOT more about this subject than me, but: we generally dont worry too much about popping unless its followed by swelling and/or pain.
Next time: try to warm up alot. Just for the experiment. Do 15 min of cardio, 10 min of lower body stretching and then squat. See if it helps.
Fun fact: I read a study some years ago about whether or not it was dangerous to squat ass to the grass, and the conclusion was, that the only reason you shouldnt be squatting ass to the grass was if you had a meniscus injury (or if your kness are genetic retards or you have an acute injury ofc).
Since you said the word "plica" i presume youve read alot about it on the internet. The inner side of the knee contains plica medialis & the medial meniscus (and other stuff ofc).
So. Lets see if its the meniscus. Google meniscus palpation, watch some videos and try to do that to yourself (ie. press your fingers into your knee like they do). Does that hurt?
If you have another person with you, get them to do this. If not: try to do it yourself and let me kno. MCL is the most common knee tear.
also. You most likely need an MRI. That will show your problems quite quickly.
You just have to pay more attention so that youre knees follow your feets directions.
Can't tell if that was sarcastic but let's wait on his answer. I can't imagine someone in medicine advising a person to put on unnecessary weight. (The typical 500 cal surplus a day people recommend is 1 pound a week. Everyone in medicine will know that's not a pound of lean tissue and so a good chunk of that surplus was totally unnecessary.)
elbow tendonitis is a bitch. A true bitch. It took me years to get rid of mine. The most common case:
1) a person gets tendonitis
2) he takes a break. Pain slowly goes away
3) pain just went away, so he starts lifting slowly
4) in a matter of 1 week hes back to his old level. No slow start up there
5) pain comes back
my point: the pain goes away alot faster than the injury. You know how to rehabilitate it. Slow & steady. Theres no holy grail yet, unfortunately.
I actually have a friend who have done some research into this, and i asked him how to train with this a while ago (i have snapping elbow myself). The problem is: theres not much knowledge about snapping elbow yet. If it causes alot of problems, you can get surgery. Its not a huge invasive surgery. If not. Well. You just have to learn how to deal with it
I havent heard about recomp before
When it comes to bulking. Just dont be one of those guys, who gain 1,5 kg a week. Try to gain around 2-300 grams a week. Bulk shouldnt just mean "now im getting fat"
im presuming that this is a troll question? i dont think i need to explain why giving a 13 year old drugs is a bad idea :D
Dear OP, I hurt my shoulders 2 1/2 weeks ago because I did to many shoulders and chest excercises. I haven't been training them since. On top of that, I started doing reverse butterflies and training my rotator cuffs. My shoulders still hurt a bit, I fear it might me an impingement syndrome.
Shall I refrain from training them or lightly introduce chest and shoulder excercises again? Also, in case of impingement, will training the rotator cuffs and back shoulders help?
A bit of a troll question since I'm not very serious about it, but I'd still like to know since I can't think of any reason why it'd be bad myself and can't find it online either.
>whats the cause of your enlarged liver?
>also. working out 4-5 hours a day seems pretty crazy unless youre an olympic weightlifter
I had an infection which is gone now, but it's still troubling me and I get pains daily.
I can spesify, the 4-5 hours are not just lifting. Some is cardio, some is lifting and then I do climbing and orienteering.
Swelling in the back of the knee is called a bakers cyst (just for educational purposes). I actually attended a doctor conference on a patient 2 months ago with those exact symptoms, and we had no clue what was wrong with him. Although there were some other things that didnt make sense aswell. I honestly have to take a pass on that one.
A bakers cyst can be caused by a couple of things
1) Rheumatoid arthritis - an autoimmune disease which decided to attack your knee
2) Osteoarthritis/arthrosis - your knee is genetically weird. Like taking a car and sticking a metal-bar inside its wheel. Eventually it will grind the wheel down.
3) most likely. Some sort of tear in the posterolateral corner or perhaps an inflammation of M. plantaris
You probably need to see a specialist, although i will admit that i am quite demoralized when it comes to dealing with a random bakers cyst
As you probably know:
1) your inguinal canal is too wide
2) you increase your intra-abdominal pressure by fx. squatting or shitting
3) you squeeze your intestines down into your balls (basically).
4) you get a tension-free mesh repair to seal the big hole in the inguinal canal
Neither i, or the doctors, knows anything about this, im afraid. My guess, based on anatomi, is that you perhaps could strengthen your core muscles? they make up som of the inguinal canal, and perhaps it could tighten them or something.
I twinged my lower back deadlifting around 6 months ago, doctor didn't have a look at it - stating that it wasn't disc damage because I'm still walking.
Feels like there are 2 small gristly protrusions on either side of my spine maybe 6/7" up from the coccyx and it's still sore after 6 months. Tried resting up for months, sometimes excersize helps, other times it doesn't but sitting comfortably is difficult. the pain doesn't go down my legs.
Any advice? Should I just go back to the docs? I don't know anything about physiotherapy
I went to an ortho for a couple of issues. For my toe, they did an xray and said... something something degerative tissue? Injury happened three months ago, hyperextended the toe then aggravated it walking around a lot. He said no physical therapy, and just wait and see.
But... is there any physical therapy I can do? Is it really just a wait and see thing? It's already been 3 months of waiting and seeing, there's been some improvement but still aches if I walk too long, and I can't run.
Left knee hurts when pressure is put, moreso when running, but i can't deadlift either. I have psoriasis, could it be Psoriatic arthritis? Or have i just injured it? I didnt lift for close to 2 years but just from walking a decent distance i could get aches. wat do?
I presume your sciatica is due to your back and not piriformis syndrome? if it is piriformis syndrome, you should get a person you know well to massage it (note: it is deep ass massage. No joke)
My initial thoughts are that contact-sports are bad for a person with back-problems, but i dont deal with back patients unfortunately, so i have to pass on that one.
good old impingement. Do these exercises religiously. dont skip them. These exercises are advised by a professor of sportstraumatology from my department who is probably one of the most knowledged on shoulder injuries in the world (yeah. im a fanboy)
Also. Try to keep your elbows a bit more steady that what he does in the last exercise.
when it comes to bench pressing, tuck your shoulder blades together and hold them down. When trying to introduce overhead pressing again, keep your elbows infront of your shoulders at first. That should lighten some of the
Just asked a doctor:
The problem is: Weightlifting significantly increases liver-function (in a good way). But what if you already have a damaged liver? an analogy: squatting is healthy for your lower body, but not if you have a broken knee cap. So. By weightlifting you might initally put more strain on an already over-strained liver which will cause damage.
But my answer is: i dont know
I'm an amateur boxer, about a year and a half ago I got a cyst near my scaphoid so was told not to do any high impact stuff. I'm going in to get steroids injected in it.
Think I'll ever box again?
>But what if you already have a damaged liver?
If my liver is damaged, how should I take measures to prevent further damage, or promote healing? Are there any type of diet I should follow or any behaviour that is to be avoided?
This is the last post for me!
1) find some exercises you can do without pain. Deadlift, squats. Whatever floats your boat
2) get a sleeve to warm your elbow. Keep it nice and toasty
3) in 3 weeks time. Start benchpressing. Do slow concentric and excentric. Were talking 3 sec up, 3 sec down. Heavy & slow concentric/excentric weightlifting has proven to be the superior way of rehabilitating patella tendinopathy, so it probably works on the elbow aswell
4) start with 50% weight. Do 2 warm-up sets, then 3 sets with 5 reps of 50% of your 1RM
5) next week. add 2,5%, next week another 2,5% and so on
6) if it starts hurting again, take a longer break and start slower
you cant cure them ASAP
Heavy & slow weight training has proven superior when it comes to rehabilitation patella tendnopathy (no joke. 4 Realz). Concentric & excentic should be done very slowly. You can read about impingement above..
I dont know about back injuries, im afraid
You should schedule another appointment with that doctor. The problem with acute injuries are:
1) it hurts like shit so we cant really do any fancy examinations on it (like. we cant pull it, or test your strength), so we just have to wait and see sometimes.
2) its swelled, so we have no idea whats going on in there
It could very well be an assymetric psoriatic arthritis. 1/3 of all people with psoriasis gets psoriatic arthritis, but you should see a doctor:
bad doctor: ohhh. its just psoriac arthritis
good doctor: lets just test and see if its actually a joint injury before we jump to the easy conclusions
>good old impingement. Do these exercises religiously. dont skip them. These exercises are advised by a professor of sportstraumatology from my department who is probably one of the most knowledged on shoulder injuries in the world (yeah. im a fanboy)
Thanks OP. These excercises are exactly the same I started doing a week ago to ease my problem. God bless you and may the gains be plentiful for you!
P.S. Will the pain and the impingement disappear or will I suffer from it for the rest of my life?
>good old impingement.
if you have the time read this
tl;dr: why would you do external and internal rotations when the shoulder muscles do not work in isolation? besides, why does every "medical expert" think the rc musculature only does external rotation / internal rotation when that does not happen in isolation in real life. the musculature exists mainly to keep the head of the humerus in the shoulder pocket and the overhead press stresses that function the most.
also, impingement is best prevented by learning proper shoulder mechanics i.e. using the traps to lift the acromion out of the rc tendons' way. the overhead press stresses this function the most. pumping the impinged musculature with isolations can alleviate pain but it wont fix the problem
Hey OP, first year intern here (kind of a different system I guess)... I choose specialization on June, thinking about orthopedics, how's it going over there?
Doubles decides which field of medicine I go into
Illotibial band syndrome is the outside of knee. Solution is to stretch the fuck out of glutes and psoas.
Pain on the inside of knee is runners knee. Solution is to stabilize kneecap with band and strengthen quads.
Source: I teach at a med school.
1) What country?
2) As an aspiring med student (3rd year undergraduate) who wants in on orthopaedic/sports medicine, any advice? I take the MCAT in April and apply to schools next fall.
This may have been answered already and if so just link me to it.
Runners knee ranges from PFPS, patellar chondromalacia, plica and the most common: IT-band syndrome.
Jumpers knee is lig. patella inf.
If you teach anything at a med school which has to do with joint injuries, you should be fired, because not knowing that is honestly pathetic.
Also: i truly hope that you understand that i use the word "outside" as meaning laterally. You know. Like when you talk to patients ;)
Internal Medicine attending here...
What the fuck are you doing on here not studying for your shelf. Don't go on the internet and pretend to have value. What is you step 1? What med school are you at? What do you want to do?
my wrist scaphoid ligament is half-torn
would rehabilitation excercises do any good? if so, which do you recommend? should have talked about it more with my doctor but all i know for a fact is the ligament is fucked from an MRI, it demotivated me a lot
