Live from Chicago, O’Hare airport. It’s been a pretty wild day. It has been a pretty wild day. We took a little bit of a trip. We are not in Denver anymore. Today we are probably going to talk about Patella Femoral Pain (PFPS). Maybe a little, and then we are going to review Kim’s Magic Pops, Brown Rice Chips, Smoked Paprika flavored. They actually survived the trip. Sort of survived.
This has been a good day so far. Got up early and caught a flight to Chicago. After it snowed a foot of snow, in Denver. Yeah or 1-3 inches, but whoever is counting. Yeah something like that. It was pretty impressive. Flight went out no problem, flew pretty quick. Got in to O’Hare. Picked up by friend of the show Dave. Shout out to Dave, thank you. Mr. Stokes we appreciate it very much.
Then we caught the Elmhurst verses Hope College lacrosse game. Which was a dozy. Yeah, it was a tale of three quarters and one quarter. Three quarters of pretty even play, then one quarter where Elmhurst just whooped us. Final score was 14-9. Second quarter was 8-2 in favor of Elmhurst. Captain of the Elmhurst team Quinn Stokes played a solid, solid defensive game. Yeah a great game from Quinn.
So now we are currently sitting at the airport waiting for our flight to Colorado, back to Denver. This is not our usual controlled, studio quality, recording here today. I actually kind of like. Yeah it is kinda nice, more relaxed.
Patella Femoral Pain! Pretty, pretty, pretty common. It is basically pain behind or around the kneecap that has no other definable pathology http://reboundclinic.com/knee-pain-physical-therapy-treatment/ . Tendinitis, bursitis, plica syndromes, Osgood Schlatter’s disease, Sinding Larsen’s disease, which is Osgood-schlatters but of the inferior-patellar pole instead of the tibial tuberosity. Which is a great fun, never seen diagnosis. That gets talked about all the time.
A lot of the patella femoral diagnosis’s are related to patella femoral tracking issues. Which we see a lot of in adolescents and kids. With the youth population you will see a lot of muscle imbalances. Patella femoral issues are more common in females. Almost 2:1.
