General













Sports (knee, shoulder, ankle)







  • What is a stress fracture? How does a stress fracture present, how is it diagnosed, and how is it treated? What are the consequences of ignoring and not treating a stress fracture?   

  • What is rotator cuff tendinosis (tendinopathy)? What are the consequences of labeling it as “tendinitis"? What are the consequences of labeling rotator cuff tendinopathy as a “partial rotator cuff tear”? What are the consequences of labeling rotator cuff tendinopathy as “impingement syndrome”?

  • What is the function of the ACL? How do ACL tears occur - and why might it be the case (as we suspect) that skiing-related tears of the ACL in the knee occur disproportionately after 2pm?
