Happy New Year! The skiing season is well under way, and already the associated knee injuries are appearing in clinic. To reduce the risk of lower limb injuries use the FIFA 11+ or PEP programme protocols in the patient information section of the website. If you start these now the injury risk will be lowered within 4-6 weeks.
The British Journal of Sports and Exercise Medicine has published the current consensus document on causes and treatment of patellofemoral pain. As in our practice, there is a strong emphasis on correcting biomechanics. A link to the article is at: http://dx.doi.org/10.1136/bjsports-2017-098717
A couple of fantastic recent results from ACP injections for early arthritis of the knee and hip. This is a great potential option for those wishing to avoid joint replacement with symptomatic early osteoarthritis
See you all tonight at the Hilton for presentations by myself and Drummond Mansbridge on knee and hip pain. Over 100 people have signed up!
Looking forwards to talking to everyone who has signed up for the presentation on hip and knee problems at the Hilton next week. Happy to answer questions afterwards!
