Knee pain in children and adolescents is one of the most prevalent complaints in a pediatric practice, accounting for at least a third of musculoskeletal complaints. Accurate diagnosis requires an understanding of knee anatomy and patterns of knee injuries and skill in physical examination. This review covers the most common causes of knee pain in children and adolescents, including overuse issues, such as Osgood-Schlatter and osteochondritis dissecans, as well as traumatic injuries, including tibial spine fractures and anterior cruciate ligament injuries...

BACKGROUND: There is still much that we do not know about differences in sports injuries between young male and female athletes and the factors that may increase the risk for injuries in this regard. PURPOSE: To describe and compare differences between males and females in pediatric sports-related injuries. STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional study; Level of evidence, 3. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed using a 5% random sampling (N = 2133) of medical records of children aged 5 to 17 years seen over 10 years in a sports medicine clinic at a large academic pediatric hospital...

BACKGROUND: Lower limb injuries in sport are increasingly prevalent and responsible for large economic as well as personal burdens. In this review we seek to determine which easily implemented functional neuromuscular warm-up strategies are effective in preventing lower limb injuries during sports participation and in which sporting groups they are effective. METHODS: Seven electronic databases were searched from inception to January 2012 for studies investigating neuromuscular warm-up strategies and injury prevention...

Ligaments and tendons are soft connective tissues which serve essential roles for biomechanical function of the musculoskeletal system by stabilizing and guiding the motion of diarthrodial joints. Nevertheless, these tissues are frequently injured due to repetition and overuse as well as quick cutting motions that involve acceleration and deceleration. These injuries often upset this balance between mobility and stability of the joint which causes damage to other soft tissues manifested as pain and other morbidity, such as osteoarthritis...

Anterior knee pain and overuse sports type injuries have been associated with anatomical factors. Specific diagnosis in knee pain is difficult, most service patients are grouped together as "Patello-Femoral Stress Syndrome". Knee pain incidence within the service population is unknown, but thought to be greater than those presenting to General Practitioners. 293 active duty service men (100 Army and 193 Royal Navy) were interviewed and examined in relation to their knees. 138 measurements were made on each subject...

It is estimated that 30 million children in the US participate in organised sports programmes. As more and more children participate in sports and recreational activities, there has been an increase in acute and overuse injuries. Emergency department visits are highest among the school-age to young adult population. Over one-third of school-age children will sustain an injury severe enough to be treated by a doctor or nurse. The yearly costs have been estimated to be as high as 1.8 billion US dollars. There are physical and physiological differences between children and adults that may cause children to be more vulnerable to injury...

The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships between lower limb and back injuries with perceived landing patterns and podiatric variables for injured and uninjured elite netball players. 228 players of a possible 240 participants at the 1988 Australian netball championships completed injury questionnaires and were assessed for injury status. Approximately 92% of those who were part of the injury surveys were also given a podiatric assessment. Pearson chi 2 and unpaired t-tests were used to assess relationships between injury status in 2 groups (history of injury, and injuries sustained during the championships) and perceived landing patterns during play and podiatric variables...

Knee injuries are relatively common in tennis, comprising about one fifth of all tennis injuries. The most common injuries are meniscus injuries and degenerative cartilage problems in middle aged and elderly recreational players. In younger individuals, patellofemoral pain syndromes are the most frequent and intriguing problems. Knee overuse syndromes occur more commonly on surfaces such as all weather concrete because they are more fatiguing and have higher friction than clay surfaces do.
