Recent Health Talks Authored by Dr. Grant Lum

  • Neck Pain Caused By Computer and Desk Work  " John a 47-year-old male IT consultant "

    On exam, he has a head-forward sitting posture. There is limitation in his range of motion in all directions, with tenderness of his facets and neck muscles. He has no radiating pain, and his Spurling’s test is negative. His upper extremity neurovascular exam is normal.

    This patient could benefit from a consultation with a physiotherapist to work on posture, and to reduce muscle and joint tension in his neck. He could also benefit from an ergonomic assessment at work, and possibly for his vehicle, to reduce environmental factors that could worsen neck pain. He could also consider chiropractic adjustment if his facet joint pain doesn’t improve. Massage therapy may also help loosen tight muscles.

  • Knee Arthritis and Treatment Options " Simon a 41-year-old male recreational hockey player "

    Simon is a 41-year-old male recreational hockey player who visits his physician complaining of medial right knee pain. The knee feels stiff in the mornings, and is sore after running, but not so much with hockey. He had a previous ACL tear and reconstruction 20 years ago in college. He has some swelling after activity, but no locking or giving way. He has an old custom-made knee brace, but hasn’t worn it in years.

    On exam, his knee is slightly swollen, with tenderness over the medial joint line. He has some limitation in flexion and extension, and some atrophy of his quads and hamstrings. His ACL graft feels stable.

    Simon could benefit from seeing a physiotherapist to work on his strength, and to reduce his pain. He might benefit from a new custom knee brace to include offloading of his medial side. He might also benefit from a viscosupplement or platelet rich plasma injection, to reduce pain and improve function.

  • Patellofemoral Syndrome - Knee Pain " Brooke is a 15-year-old female volleyball player "

    Brooke is a 15-year-old female high school volleyball player visits a sports medicine physician complaining of a 2-year history of bilateral knee pains. She has no swelling, locking, or giving way of the knees, and there have been no serious injuries, but she hears “crunching” as she bends her knees or when she lands from jumping. Although she hasn’t missed any games, Brooke has to ice her knees afterwards, and has been taking 2 tablets of ibuprofen before and after games. Her main concern is an upcoming tournament, where she’ll be playing up to 4 matches each day for 3 days.

    On examination, she has crepitations (crackling sounds) on active range of motion, and passive full flexion is painful. She has flat feet, and internally rotated patellae (kneecaps). Her IT bands are tight, and her glutes are weak. She is unable to squat on one leg alone due to pain.

    Brooke could benefit from physiotherapy to work on her strength and flexibility, an orthotics provider to fit her for orthotics, and a bracing specialist to consider patellar stabilizing braces. Her sports medicine physician may also order any imaging tests in order to help determine the full extent of her condition.
