Dysfunctions:

- Stress fractures in right and left tibia bones . Client has tenderness and pain (usually in the lower 1/3 quadrant of the tibia) if pressure is applied. The stress fracture is probably caused by long, tough workouts, without much rest,(soccer) causing the muscles ( Tibialis Anterior)to fatigue. My goal of this session is to increase blood flow, circulation, tissue/muscle regeneration and decrease muscle tension, fatigue and pain in that area. Muscle/Bones Involved: Tibia bone and Tibialis Anterior Muscles.

- Patellar Tendonitis in the knees. Client has pain, loss of motion and slight inflammation inferior to the knees around the tibial tuberosity. His workouts involve jumping a running a lot. The quadriceps tendon attach to the patellar tendon, so any stress or activity on the quads will result in pain at the patellar tendon. My goal is to reduce inflammation ,increase range of motion, and decrease pain and muscle tension. Muscle/Bones Involved: Patellar-around the joint, Quadriceps tendon, patellar tendon.
