Title: Quick question: Is there a name for this...
Post by: squibler on November 09, 2008, 03:58:43 AM
My PT told me that my kneecap doesn't like to move medially because the medial leg muscles are very tight.  Is there a name a name of this situation, or is it just known as having 'tight muscles?' Thank you  :)

Id describe it as 'the tracking is off because the medial structures are tighter than the lateral side'.

Tanyap-
Thank you for your response!  I wanted to know a more correct term so I don't sound like a complete doofus  ;D  Thanks again.
