Tenderness around the tibial tuberosity
« on: September 12, 2010, 06:42:52 PM »
Recently I've been having some tenderness in my left knee around the tibial tuberosity.  It is not just on the tuberosity itself but just udnerneeath and latterally, but not down the side. it si causing me some trouble when walking and using stairs and I can't figure out why I've got it.  My last mri is totally clear even though the last one said my acl is slightly attenuated and only has about 1cm movement on a lachman.  I last saw my pt on Thursday and it wasn't bothering me then so I'm hoping it will subside  There is a little fluiid on the tt, it feels like little blobs that move uner the skin.  I know their fluid because I had them on my right knee and an ultrasound showed it  Do other shave sensitiviy and soreness in the tt area when they have patellafemoral probelms or pf osteoarthritis.  I think its OA because the knee is getting warm at night like it was back in May.  If it was OA I would have expected it to show up though.  Also it doesn't hurt too much in the morning but gets more painful during the day.  I still ahe good ROM and hyperexension and there doesn't seem to be any fluid squashing around.

What does that mean?

It means stretch out your anterior tibialis muscle. Frequently. It connects from your 1st MTP (big toe joint) up onto the top of the tibia, and tightness can cause pain in that area. Its notoriously tight in people with over pronation, wonky knees, etc. When you put your foot flat and then lift your toes, the muscle will contract, just to the side of the tubercle. Rub it. Stretch it. Love it.

Thanks Vicks.  ;D

It could be that because I do have flat feet but I also wear my innsoles 24/7 except when lying down or int eh shower.  Coudl I be wearing them too much.  Do people with flat feet really need their orthotics in all the time?
