Patellar Dislocations:
Patellar dislocations can occur either in contact or non-contact situations. An athlete can dislocate his/her patella when the foot is planted and a rapid change of direction or twisting occurs.
Symptoms:
Typical symptoms include:
-Rapid, acute swelling.
-Extreme pain initially until relocation occurs.
-Continued pain along medial (inside) ligaments.
-Discoloration medially at site of ligament injury.
-Sense of instability and apprehension that problem will recur.
Physical therapy treatment for a dislocated patella:

-It can begin after the initial evaluation. Common physical therapy treatments may include modalities to control pain and swelling, treatments to improve muscle contraction and function around the patella, and gait training to improve walking.

-Pain management will also be integral part of therapy in the initial stages after a patellar dislocation. This may include modalities such as icing, ultrasound, acupuncture and taping.

06/17/2024

Radiating Pain:
Radiating pain refers to pain that travels from one part of your body to another. It is often the first sign of a more serious medical issue.
For example, a herniated disc might cause pain in the lower back. The sciatic nerve, which travels down your leg, might be the source of this discomfort, so technically your herniated disc will also cause the leg pain.
Radiating pain can be caused by a variety of things, and in some circumstances, it may be a sign of a more serious problem.
How physical therapy works?
If the pain doesn't go away after a few weeks, your doctor will start you on physical therapy to help you strengthen and stretch the muscles linked to the nerve.
In the case of a suspected herniated disk, they will recommend:
Stretching exercises
Back strengthening exercises
A McKenzie Method
