Radiculopathy vs peripheral neuropathy

20:30 The MACP one day nerve neurodynamic course has got me thinking.

I have been reading up on the differences between radiculopathy and peripheral neuropathy, online.

I thin I understand the difference well now now

This has been useful

Physiotherapy Ankle Taping

15:16 I have spent an hour reading up on taping.

In taping techniques practice and principles by Rosie McDonald.

I am especially interested in ankle taping to support lateral ankle sprains and to reduce over pronation

Sinus Tarsi

15:05 I had a read up on SINUS TARSI syndrome

Liam had mentioned it and it came up again in the taping textbook that I have been reading today.

I looked it up on:

http://www.physioadvisor.com.au/8074550/sinus-tarsi-syndrome-physioadvisor.htm

I think I understand it a little better now.

15:09 I also read up on Liam's What's my Injury website.

I understand it a bit more now.

GH THREADS MACP

I had a really good chat with Katherine on Friday.

We shared a shift for a change.

It's so great to work with someone who is in the MACP. It is a real highlight of my workplace.

We talked about a problem patient I had with persistent severe proximolateral patellar pain.

We then talked about subjective notes.

Her use of THREADS plus her extra questions within GH. General health label.

Trochlear Groove - where your kneecap should happily slide

I looked this up, to check, as I use it lots to explains knee problems to my patients:

The groove that the patella sits in at the end of the femur is called the:

Trochlear Groove

Nerve root level variability

Talked to my excellent physiotherapist colleagues.

They tell me that nerve roots can exit at a foremen 3 levels above or below where they exit the spinal cord.

This is from perhaps the:

Textbook of pain.

Perhaps Butler's texts.

It's great to have confirmation of this. When working at Dr Sherwood's I often found they the sore spinal level did not correspond to the affected textbook dermatome, but often related to one above or below.

I'll try to find the reference now.

Katherine has kindly lent me her Textbook of Pain.
