Snapping Scapula Syndrome
What is snapping scapula syndrome? Snapping scapula syndrome is a condition causing painful grinding, clicking or snapping of the shoulder blade (Figure 1). The shoulder joint itself is called the glenohumeral joint. The acromioclavicular joint is associated with shoulder separation.

Over 1/3 of the shoulder movement occurs between the scapula and the thoracic cage. The shoulder blade serves as an anchor for the subscapularis and serratus anterior muscles (Figure 3).

Knee Bursitis
The knee bursa is a small fluid filled sac located between the front of the knee cap (the patella) and the overlying skin (Figure 1). This bursa allows the knee cap to slide freely underneath the skin as we bend and straighten the knee. This bursitis causes pain, swelling, tenderness and a lump in the area on top of the knee cap (Figure 2). It may be very difficult to kneel down and put the knee on the floor due to the tenderness and swelling. Types of Knee Bursitis: Depending on the location, there are a few different types of knee bursitis including; suprapatellar, prepatellar (the most common/popeye knee), infra...

The acromion and the clavicle (collar bone) combine to form the AC joint. The coracoid process is a thick curved structure attached to the upper part of the scapula (shoulder blade). The glenohumeral joint is a ball and socket joint, ...

How I Got Into Shape After Quitting the Gym
I've been a group fitness junkie for as long as I can remember. I seemed to need the competitiveness inherent in group exercise even in high school in order to keep me accountable and working hard. Group bootcamps, kickboxing and spin classes dictated my weekly schedule. By the time I reached my mid 30s, I sported several herniated discs, a knee that swelled from time to time and bursitis in my hip, which constantly threatened my kickboxing habit. Not only did I not listen to my body, but I didn't listen to several orthopedic surgeons who unanimously put a damper on my love for plyometrics and heavy impact. How was I suppo...

Is This Bursitis?
Patient Presentation A 16-year-old male came to clinic as 5 hours earlier while in school he noted that his right elbow was swollen.

Elbow Pain in Adults - 2014 review from Am Fam Physician
The elbow is a complex joint designed to withstand a wide range of dynamic exertional forces. The location and quality of elbow pain can generally localize the injury to one of the four anatomic regions: anterior, medial, lateral, or posterior.

What Causes Leg Pain?
Discussion “Growing pains” of the legs are a common complaint in children. Heterogeneous studies from 1928-2004 have found prevalence rates of 2.6-49.4% in children ages 4-19. The studies are heterogeneous because of time, location, and especially definition of growing pains. A study of 1445, 4-6 year olds in 2004 using a validated tool showed a prevalence rate of 36.9%. The definition of growing pains used by Peterson in the 2004 study is chronic “…intermittent (nonarticular) pains in both legs that generally occur late in the day or at night…” with a normal physical examination and ...
