Shin Splints

Shin splints are a common exercise-related injury characterized by generalized pain along the shinbone, or tibia. Shin splints develop when pressure is continually exerted along the bone and connective tissues during activities such as long-distance runs. Most cases of shin splints can be treated without surgery.

Runner's Knee

More commonly known as runner's knee, patellofemoral pain occurs around the front of the knee, usually because of trauma or repeated stress. In addition to injury, factors like misalignment of the kneecap, flat feet, and complete or partial dislocation can all take a serious toll on the knee. The condition frequently responds well to physical therapy and other forms of conservative medical management.

Stress Fractures

Stress fractures, a type of overuse injury, occur when bones have been pushed past their limit. Stress fractures usually begin as micro-fractures, resulting when muscles have become so fatigued they are unable to adequately absorb shock, and then progress to more serious breaks. The level of damage between stress fractures can vary greatly, and the condition calls for comprehensive assessment.

Osgood-Schlatter Disease

Oslood-Schlatter disease occurs in adolescents and is caused by inflammation of the patellar tendon. The condition can cause irregular bone growth, which creates painful lumps just under the knee. Oslood-Schlatter disease can be aggravated by excessive training or obesity. It is more common in boys than girls, and can be treated non-surgically in many cases, although it may also require surgical intervention in advanced cases.

Tennis Elbow

Lateral epicondylitis, or tennis elbow, occurs when the tendons that connect the muscles of the forearm to the outside of the elbow become inflamed. As the muscles and tendons become damaged from chronic degenerative processes or overuse, the elbow becomes tender or excessively sore. Tennis elbow usually responds well to physical therapy.

Roughly 200,000 Americans sustain concussions each year while playing sports. Concussions occur when the brain moves rapidly or violently inside the skull, and can be caused either by a direct blow to the head or trauma to the body. Concussions can have serious lasting effects, and need to be assessed by an experienced doctor. Dr. Rudman has extensive training with sports-related concussion management from his work with NFL teams.
