Are you a young doc treating patients with back pain, hip pain, groin pain or IT Band Syndrome? Did you know often times patients will be given a misdiagnosis, they hold onto dearly, before they walk into your office?
That’s right! People are being misdiagnosed… I’ve done it, you’ve done it, we’ve all have done it and it’s mainly from lack of knowing what to look for, what to test and what to ask. I was there… I’m still learning everyday.
Dr. Michael Fanning DC, came in to chat with me about proper diagnosis. Dr. Fanning and I have a friend in common, Tom Fletcher, who you heard in the last podcast.
Some of the topics we covered in this podcast are:
Dr. Michael Fanning Bio:

“When a Crossfit athlete complains of IT Band Syndrome, I know already they probably don’t have IT Band Syndrome”
“Stiffness in the morning with IT Band Syndrome is from imbibition (disc fluid increase)”
“The L5 nerve goes right over the IT Band location”
“It’s really important for all trainers to be able to recognize hip impingement”
“People with hip impingement may have pain with squatting”
