Knee Pain and Injury

Knee Pain in our young gymnasts is a warning sign that they are either putting too much stress into their young bodies, or they are landing with improper technique.

Both of these scenarios put extreme pressure on the body, and injury will occur.

This knee presentation is from the Gymnast Care Book on Injuries release week webinar series. During this webinar, we cover the following knee issues for gymnasts:

  • Acute Knee Injuries
  • Overuse Knee Injuries
  • Osgood Schlatters Disease
  • Sinding-Larsen-Johansson Syndrome
  • Patellar Tendonitis
  • IT Band Tightness
  • Adductor Tightness and Insertion Pain

Dr. Joshua Eldridge then discussed the treatment for acute knee injury, and how to prevent overuse knee injuries in gymnasts.

Preventing knee injuries in gymnastics is all about teaching gymnasts to control their bodies optimally. It’s also about learning proper landing technique in order to utilize muscles to absorb the force of landing, rather than bones, joints, and ligaments absorbing the impact of landing.

The Gymnast Care Book on Injuries is your guide to protecting your gymnast’s knees. When injured, it walks you through from the moment of injury to the rehab process to get them back in the gym faster, stronger, and healthier.
