Running Tips: How to Love Running

As someone who loves running, it's difficult to put myself inside the head of someone who hates it. But it's easy for me to relate to people who are new to running, who kinda-sorta like it, who are trying to find a way to love it. After all, I was in that position myself not so long ago. More

The Hip, Getting Older and Running

Many active Americans worry about the impact of exercise on their hips. Chris Dollar, PT, DPT, talks about the hip and how it ages with you. More

24 Mar 2014
Chris, I was amazed to see your name on this! Good piece of work and great points to keep in mind. I'm doing well, thankfully, with both shoulders full ROM! Yea, and thanks to you!!! I'm still working Thursdays at Mitey Riders getting my mental therapy with the horses. If you have it free, come out Sat., May 3 to watch some of our kids ride. It's the Spring Festival with lots of food and fun 9-2. I'll be working barn, but I can get some time free with pre-planning. Mom is doing as good as can be expected - she's just aging faster than I would like, but, my goodness - she's 84 and can be slow and a bit confused if she wants to...LOL Virginia is wonderful with her "new knee". She had the ACL/PCL surgery about 2 years ago and has recovered well. She's riding balanced now and her knee is stable. She has work that should be done on the right but she's holding off on that. She is running a boarding facility and teaches riding - is happy and in a new relationship which is much more to everyone's liking. So it goes. I hope you are doing well and enjoying your new challenges. I have a friend in PT for rotator cuff/bicep repair. I keep telling her she needs to come see you in stead of the Ballantyne location. Take care and Happy Easter!

Aaron's Crossfit Corner

Functional Movement More

26 Feb 2014
Thanks Jenny! I get this question a whole bunch. My answer: “It depends.” Let’s first start by discussing the rationale. There are 2 main ideas on why one should avoid deep squatting. First, there is a cadaveric study from the 1960’s that suggests that deep squatting leads to increased laxity of the knee ligaments (primarily the cruciate ligaments). It was a cadaveric (ie dead person) study and has later on been shown thru numerous other studies not to be the case. But in the 60’s, the American Medical Association jumped all over this study and made a blanket recommendation to avoid deep squatting. This gained traction and perpetuated the myth. The second argument against the deep squat is that the deeper you go in to your squat position there is a linear rise in the amount of pressure in the patellofemoral joint (where your kneecap sits in relation to the femur). This is a good study and the evidence here is solid. But, like every study I read, correlation does not equal causation. If you have a condition known as “patellofemoral pain”, “chondromalacia”, or “lateral patellar compression syndrome” than you fall in to this category. I usually recommend against deep squats to these people. Without knowing your exact knee problem and without examining you I would say this: If you are dealing with anterior (front/patella) knee pain, early articular cartilage disease, or have a history of ligament damage/reconstruction deep squatting probably isn’t the best option and you should use caution. I would tell my family member to avoid it. But to date, there has been minimal literature that makes me believe that deep squatting using correct form (weight on heels, upright chest, bar over heels) in a healthy, well aligned knee is problematic. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11194098 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11949662
- OrthoCarolina
Hey Aaron! Sorry my comment is somewhat unrelated to this article, BUT, I met with a dr. today (yes at Orthocarolina) and he mentioned that no one should ever be squatting below parallel. As you know in Crossfit, we are required to squat just below parallel so I told him I was going to pose the question to you...do you think it is ok to squat below parallel?
- Jenny
Great article!

Hi, Katie. I work with Jared. He directed me to your Ortho Carolina posting and after I read it I happened to mention my wife, Nancy, had two knee replacements done by Dr. Griffin. She has scar tissue issues in one of her knees and cannot, for example, get out of a chair unless the chair has arms and she can get some pushing leverage. Nancy is a doctor's daughter so a mere mortal like me cannot tell her anything. I would like your opinion on whether exercise/pilates, etc. can loosen her up. Have you run across a similar situation with a patient? Nancy is 64. Thanks, Katie. Jere Baxter

Please don't penalize the doctors who perform hip and knee replacements on seniors. I had to have a hip replacement because the pain of arthritis had become unbearable. My doctor did not take the job lightly. and I can do so much more than before my surgery. I couldn't have paid any more, but I don't expect them to get less reimbursement for their service.

Comment Hip and knee replacements adds quality for many seniors in their later years as well as saves considerably from nursing home costs and health care. Please do not cut those benefits.
- Name Don T. Linker
Do not cut benefits to seniors for knee or hip replacement. It would be very detrimental to the quality and enjoyment of life.
