[RC] Knee Pain - jpascu

Hi Cheryl;

Sorry to hear you're having knee pain. This area of the knee is a fairly complicated because is has so many tendons coming into it. If there is an imbalance in the muscles that attach here, the gracilis, sartorius and semi-tendinosus you will feel it in the knee. If your femur laterally rotates, x legs, you'll also put more strain on the knee. There's a lot that can be done for it. Unfortunately the steriod injections often lead to more soft tissue problems. I have a studio on Longmont if you want to come in for a consult.
How's Randy? Are you guys still living on St. Vrain road? I ride my bike past your place alot.

Subject: [RC] Pes Anserine tendonitis, bursitis

OK, someone else out there must have had problems with tendonitis and
bursitis just below the knee, medial side on their own legs.  Mine has been
going on since last May, and even after PT and two steroid shots in each leg
they still flair up easily.  Doing stretching, trying to make good choices
about how not to over extend them, but it really does not take much to make
them flair up and get sore.  Not as bad as the initial injury, but enough
that it slows me down.  Help.  Any ideas about how to get the last part of
the healing in place, or is this just the way it is. UGH
