    Can anyone read this doctor's note to my physiotherapist?

    Hi all,

    I recently saw a sports medicine doctor who diagnosed me with patellar tendinosis on the left side. He wrote this note and told me to give it to my physiotherapist. I am wondering if anyone can translate what it says? Please see attached picture. His signature is cut off in the bottom left hand corner.

    Here is my best guess:

    Physio
    Left patellar tendinopathy
    at tib (tibial?) tub (tuberosity?)
    lower? pain
    (no idea) strengthen
    VMO / Hip abduction
    (no idea)


    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated esp on the (no idea) parts! Or any other areas where i might be wrong.

    Thanks
    SPenny

    Hi

    There are so many ways that proper physiotherapy could help to improve the quality of your life that it would be unwise to avoid doing it just because it might be a little expensive. Spinewise offer best physiotherapy for their pateints.

    Re: Can anyone read this doctor's note to my physiotherapist?

    Hi SPenny

    Looks like you deciphered the handwriting well.

    The note seems to identify the insertion of the patella tendon into the Tibial Tuberosity as the area affected.

    Strengthening VMO and the Abductors of the hip as part of your rehabilitation should assist in relieving this (as long as treatment is guided well by a physio/sport rehabilitation/athletic trainer).

    The VMO muscle attaches on the inside of the kneecap to assist in stabilising your kneecap when it moves. Hip Abductors control the knee from moving inwards when standing. Weakness in either of these areas can increase the load placed on the patella tendon leading to tendinopathy.

    Hope this helps explain a few things, but feel free to fire away with any questions.
