Mike Cantrell, MPT, PRC recently sent us a video of a patient he is treating. Here is what he had to say about her:
“I have been treating this patient for bilateral knee pain. Her right knee pain has decreased but the left still persists. She is in a set of PRI orthotics and wearing appropriate shoes. She had a significant ankle sprain back in the fall of last year and it continues to hurt. She is an Irish dancer and feels knee and ankle pain when dancing. She is not sure if ankle bracing helps or hurts the knee. Hruska Adduction Lift scores are excellent, she has full HG IR and FA IR/ER. Here is a video of her gait pattern.”

After looking at the video you will see that this patient still has no control of her left glute med. She collapses with gait and falls to the right. She will need to be on a program where she feels her left adductor co-contract with her left glute med.
