4 days ago
Are you a young doc treating patients with back pain, hip pain, groin pain or IT Band Syndrome? Did you know often times patients will be given a misdiagnosis, they hold onto dearly, before they walk into your office? That’s right! People are being misdiagnosed… I’ve done it, you’ve done it, we’ve all have done it and it’s mainly from lack of knowing what to look for, what to test and what to ask. I was there… I’m still learning everyday. Dr. Michael Fanning DC, came in to chat with me about proper diagnosis. Dr. Fanning and I have a friend in common, Tom Fletcher, who you heard in the last podcast. Some of the topics we covered in this podcast are: IT Band Syndrome vs Lumbar “Pinched Nerve” Radiculopathy Hip Impingement vs Hip Flexor Tendonitis How to use Kettlebells in rehab How to wear pink speedos when biking Dr. Michael Fanning Bio: Michael is a Rhode Island native, OIF Veteran (Operation Iraqi Freedom) and endurance athlete. He is a Chiropractic Sports Medicine resident, and specializes in diagnosis and conservative management of neuromuscular skeletal injuries. He lives in southern California with his beautiful wife Jen, and great dane, Bear. Quotes: “When a Crossfit athlete complains of IT Band Syndrome, I know already they probably don’t have IT Band Syndrome” “Stiffness in the morning with IT Band Syndrome is from imbibition (disc fluid increase)” “The L5 nerve goes right over the IT Band location” “It’s really important for all trainers to be able to recognize hip impingement” “People with hip impingement may have pain with squatting” Sebastian’s Youtube Channel Attention Docs and Fitness Professionals: Access your client educational products, banners and posters here.
