Volleyball player been having both knee pain for the past 5 years. Experiences pain when bending the knees, squat, lunge, and jumping on them. Recently when diving for a ball, injured his left shoulder.
Thorough Structural Test revealed bipartite patella, tripartite patella, and signs of Ricket’s as a child. Although these are interested structural abnormalities, they don’t cause his knee pain. Further testing revealed that he didn’t have any structural issue with the knees, the true problem was due to the 5th Lumbar nerve not functioning properly. The 4L and 5L Lumbar nerves are responsible for supplying nerve function to the vastus medialis oblique muscle to keep the patella (knee cap) centered. Both his patella deviated laterally (outwards) resulting in knee pain. The other Structural Abnormality detected was the 6th Dorsal vertebra which is responsible for supplying nerve function to his left scapula / shoulder blade resulting in his left shoulder pain.
