Joint Tracking Syndromes
The beginning of a vicious cycle
Joint Tracking Syndromes get complicated because they lead to pain in other areas. They can cause bursitis, tendonitis, impingement syndromes, and muscle pain.
Runners Knee (aka Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome)
Patellar tracking disorder means that the kneecap (patella) shifts out of place as the leg bends or straightens. In most cases, the kneecap shifts too far toward the outside of the leg. In a few people, it shifts toward the inside.
Patellar tracking disorder complications could involve:
- Weak thigh muscles
- Tendons, ligaments, or muscles in the leg that are too tight or too loose
- Activities that stress the knee, again and again, especially those with twisting motions
- A traumatic injury to the knee, such as a blow that pushes the kneecap toward the outer side of the leg
- Problems with the structure of the knee bones or how they are aligned
Scapular Dyskinesis (which may also be referred to as SICK scapula syndrome)
Is an alteration or deviation in the normal resting or active position of the scapula during shoulder movement. Abnormal repetitive motion of the scapula, though sometimes asymptomatic, can increase the chances of progressive injury.
Common Signs and Symptoms
- Pain and or tenderness around the scapula when using the arm overhead or carrying heavy objects with the arm at the side
- Snapping or popping sensation around the scapula with shoulder movement
- Loss of strength with shoulder and arm use
- Asymmetrical posture (effected side usually sits lower)
- Winging of the scapula
- Instability of the shoulder (feels like it moves out of place)
- Muscle weakness or imbalance
- Poor overhead mechanics
- Overuse or repetitive motions such as throwing or serving
