With our modern and chair-dominated life styles, running, jumping, and even weight training are often associated with some sort of knee pain and may prevent us from continuing our favorite activities. Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (PFPS or PFS), bursitis, meniscus and ligament sprains are just some of the common injuries you may have heard of.
Another common and debilitating injury is that of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL). ACL injuries, or in a lot of cases ACL tears, are some of the most common orthopedic injuries world-wide. A lot of ACL tears in young adults require surgery in order to re-instate the stability of the knee during running and directional changes. At Sinamédic we address all these issues and follow evidence-based protocols for a safe return to activities.
