All About Patellar Tendonitis

Knee Pain:

The knee is one of the most vital tendon systems of our body. For athletes, especially those engaged in team sports, the health and well-being of their knee is so important. Their careers are dependent on how long their knees stay injury-free.
In sports, like volleyball and basketball which involve a lot of jumping, the knees are exposed to a myriad of injuries. One of them is patellar tendonitis, commonly known as jumper’s knee.
As its name suggests, jumper’s knee comes from “jumping”. Basketball and volleyball athletes are at risk of suffering from patellar tendonitis. When players dash and go for fast breaks, leap for rebounds and block spikes, dive for loose balls, the knee is always under duress and stress. As a result of all that activity, the patella tendon below the knee cap develops patella tendonitis.
The following are some of the symptoms that you are suffering from jumper’s knee or patellar tendonitis:
1. Gradual increase of pain in the knee with increase in level of activity
2. Patella Tendon feels tender
3. Stiffness in the tendon during morning
4. Pain gets worse whenever you jump, land, run
Jumper’s knee/patellar tendonitis can go beyond just knee pain. Additional stress on the tendon will do further damage and might lead to the whole knee being damaged for life. Athletes with severe jumper’s knee will not only be able to play at peak levels, and may have to refrain from playing again.
To treat jumper’s knee, we have the following advice:
1. Rest your injured knees and refrain from activities that would cause further stress to it.
2. Apply cold compress to the swelling and then warm compress after the swelling is reduced.
3. Always do warm-ups before any activity. Do these warm-up exercises to increase the strength of your knee.
4. Consult a professional therapist on stretching exercises, those which are specifically for the knees.
Do not let jumper’s knee end your athletic career end early, or make you stop playing the game you always loved. Visit Launchfit™ by Clinicube®and we will teach you how to overcome patellar tendonitis!

Benefits of Redcord therapy NOMAD, Manhattan NY

New Yorkers, we live in one of the most exciting cities on Earth, but how can we enjoy our time here if we’re suffering from chronic back pain? Missing time off work, and being unable to run, dance or even walk in the park, are common downsides of this widespread problem. No matter what your age, level of physical agility or health, there is a system invented in Norway which can really help.

Redcord Physical Therapy NOMAD district Manhattan

Available here at our clinic in Nomad, the Redcord active suspension apparatus can support your own body weight in slings, in order to work on, and strengthen, the muscles that need building up. The unique multi-point harness balances the entire body, holding it in an ideal relationship to gravity. Regaining core strength and relieving pressure on the spine is the result, whether that is from compressed discs, trapped nerves or any other factors. This workout is unique in using your own weight for resistance and encouraging stability, coordination and balance.

 

The careful positioning of the slings and bungee cords for optimal body alignment makes the experience pain-free, safe, and possible for anyone of any age or ability to undergo. Whilst suspended, only the relevant muscles are specifically exercised, a breakthrough for those who have difficulty with movement. This select targeting offsets any restrictions our clients may face. Often in a short space of treatment, we have been able to report impressive results.

Redcord Physical Therapy Helps New Yorkers Recover Faster

Whether it’s recovery from an injury or long-standing chronic pain, or a need for performance enhancement, Redcord therapy can provide valuable therapeutic relief. By isolating and focusing on the appropriate muscles, this physical therapy can be compared to Pilates; on steroids.

 

Musculoskeletal and neuromuscular pains are effectively treated with Redcord equipment. Rather than solely addressing symptoms, Redcord gets to work on the cause of the problem, and restores and improves muscle function. By identifying “weak links” where the body is over-stressed, exercising on the workstation relieves the strain on these areas.

 

Whatever the cause or extent of your back pain, we can identify and tailor a set of enhancing exercises with the Redcord pulleys and slings. We’d love to help so please do give us a call or book a trial session online.

Pushups with Redcord Suspension for Back Pain

If you suffer from low back pain and are looking for safe, effective ways to manage your symptoms, suspension training is a therapy you may want to explore. Specifically, recent studies have shown that performing pushups while supported by a sling can reduce chronic low back pain in adults.

How does redcord suspension therapy work?

You’re probably familiar with the basic pushup motion, but as someone with low back pain, you likely find pushups difficult to perform. Yet, these exercises strengthen the abdominal and lumbar muscles, helping to stabilize your lumbar spine (the lower portion of your spine), which in turn reduces back pain. Using the sling to support your body makes it possible for you to perform the pushup moves correctly and without jarring your injured back. Over time, the muscles in your lower back will grow stronger and your pain should lessen.

How often do you need to perform redcord exercises?

In a study that examined the effectiveness of pushups in a sling for treating lower back pain, students performed the exercises 3 times per week for 6 weeks. They trained for 30 minutes per session, performing not only pushups, but also a variety of other sling-based exercises. Your physical therapist may recommend more or less training, depending on the severity of your back pain and your overall physical abilities.

How can you guarantee success?

For best results with suspension training, it is important to work with your physical therapist. He or she can ensure you are performing the exercises correctly so that you do not risk additional injury. Studies have shown that performing pushups in conjunction with other sling exercises is more effective in managing lower back pain than general physical therapy or other sling exercises alone. Your physical therapist will be able to design a customized exercise routine based on your needs, as well as integrate other treatment, like cold therapy and chiropractic care, into your routine.

If you’ve struggled to find relief from back pain, adding pushups with redcord sling support to your routine might provide the breakthrough you’re awaiting.
