Tight Achilles Tendon, Hyperpronation and Anterior Knee Pains
The purpose of the study is to investigate the prevalence of pain in the anterior part of the knee, amongst youngsters between 16 and 18 years of age.
Furthermore, this trial intends to study the connection between the pain, hyperpronation of the foot and tight Achilles tendon.
We, the researchers at Northern Orthopaedic Division, want to find out if there is a need of an early effort in terms of information, training and/or support for the shoes.
All students (around 300) between 16 and 18 years of age from one Gymnasium, receives a questionnaire. They are asked to answer whether they have had pain in the anterior part of their knee within the last month. If so they are invited to participate in a scientific study. An equivalent group with no pain are invited to participate as a control group.
In both groups navicular drop and drift will be measured together with the dorsal flexion. The investigations are made single-blinded as the investigators do not know if the "patient" has pain or not.

Rapid swelling, increased tension, pain, and ischemic necrosis of the muscles of the anterior tibial compartment of the leg, often following excessive PHYSICAL EXERTION.
A syndrome characterized by retropatellar or peripatellar PAIN resulting from physical and biochemical changes in the patellofemoral joint. The pain is most prominent when ascending or descending stairs, squatting, or sitting with flexed knees. There is a lack of consensus on the etiology and treatment. The syndrome is often confused with (or accompanied by) CHONDROMALACIA PATELLAE, the latter describing a pathological condition of the CARTILAGE and not a syndrome.
An overuse injury causing lateral knee pain that results from repetitive friction of the iliotibial band over the lateral femoral epicondyle.
Ischemia or infarction of the spinal cord in the distribution of the anterior spinal artery, which supplies the ventral two-thirds of the spinal cord. This condition is usually associated with ATHEROSCLEROSIS of the aorta and may result from dissection of an AORTIC ANEURYSM or rarely dissection of the anterior spinal artery. Clinical features include weakness and loss of pain and temperature sensation below the level of injury, with relative sparing of position and vibratory sensation.

Idiopathic painful nonsuppurative swellings of one or more costal cartilages, especially of the second rib. The anterior chest pain may mimic that of coronary artery disease. (Dorland, 27th ed.)
The purpose of this study is to compare outcomes of combined chiropractic care in anterior knee pain patients with patellofemoral pain syndrome.
