Lower Extremity Injuries

In my practice, I have treated a significant number of patients with muscular hip pain which often contributes to a history of back pain.  It is common for many individuals to have moderate to severe tightness of the hip musculature leading to decreased range of motion and subsequent back and sacroiliac dysfunction.  We often stretch our hamstrings and quadriceps but neglect other important structures of the hip,  eventually leading to injury.  Here are the more common lower extremity injuries that I treat:

  • Piriformis Syndrome
  • Hip Bursitis and Tendonitis, Hip Sprains and Strains
  • Iliotibial (IT) Band Syndrome
  • Knee Derrangement (internal and external) including but not limited to
    • Meniscus sprain
    • ACL/PCL injuries
    • Patella femoral Syndrome or Chondromalica Patella
    • Knee Strains and Sprains
    • Knee DJD (Arthritic Conditions)
    • Patella Bursitis
    • Shin Splints
    • Fractures of the Patella, Proximal Tibia or Fibula
  • Foot and Ankle Injuries including but not limited to
    • Ankle or Foot Fractures
    • Ankle or Foot Strains and Sprains
    • Achilles Tendonitis or Tear
    • Posterior Tibial Tendonitis
    • Peroneal Tendonitis
    • Plantar Fascititis
    • Hallux Abductus or Rigitidus
