Sinding Larsen Johanssen Syndrome

Sinding Larsen Johanssen Syndrome is a condition that is located on the bottom end of the kneecap (patella).  It is seen in children who are going through a rapid growth spurt, with pain and sometimes swelling seen at the base of the kneecap. This type of syndrome is normally seen in active sporty youths between the age of 10 and 15 years, usually resolving with maturity.

To start, rest and simple stretching exercises can assist with the problem.  An in-depth physiotherapy assessment can identify potential risk factors that may be increasing symptoms. Physiotherapy techniques such as soft tissue Massage taping techniques, stretches and strengthening exercises can assist with the management of this condition. Call or email the clinics for further advice or a comprehensive physiotherapy assessment.
