Runner’s knee is caused by overuse and strain of the knee joint, including sports activities that require repetitive bending motion in the knee, usually running. This irritates the nerves in the kneecap or over stresses the tendons that connect muscle to bone in the knee joint.

1/8/15 Two years ago my parents were fortunate to survive a horrific car accident together. A drunk driver parked his car, turned off his lights, and laid down to sleep... ON the freeway in Oakland. My parent's car hit his at full speed and they both walked away, but not without injury. My mother's hand and shoulder still give her tremendous pain. About a year ago she asked me to write a review for Muir Ortho, specifically Dr. Richard Wyzykowski. She was really happy with his treatment, which has continued as recently as a shoulder MRI yesterday. I received a referral to Muir Ortho by my primary care physician last week for an ankle I sprained 3 weeks ago. My ankle is still swollen with sharp zaps of pain preventing me from sleeping well and functioning during the day. I arrived on time for my appointment today and checked in with a pretty redhead at the front desk. She was patient as I realized I left my wallet, ID, etc. in the car and had to hobble back to it. Her vibrant attitude made me feel comfortable and was a great first-face of the office. With all of the people sitting in the reception area I expected to have a long wait ahead of me, but I was called before I had even finished my basic paperwork. I was taken to a room where another friendly girl went over my general state of health and the specifics of my injury. After her a very pretty physician's assistant spoke with me about my pain and took a close look at my foot and x-ray. She took her time and was very kind and even laughed at my bad foot jokes. (I told her that the picture of my injury on facebook almost got more likes than my wedding photo! lol) She took my jokes seriously too and asked to see any pictures I had, specifically of the initial swelling and bruising on my foot and toes. Another short wait and Dr. Kou joined the P.A. in my room. His exam of my foot was less fun and more painful, but with good news (well, sort of). It's a bad sprain, but it seems no ligaments are torn. He suggested I begin physical therapy and answered my questions about use and recovery - which is a long way ahead of me. No 5K runs for Amy for a while. As I exited the office I waited to check-out and return the papers (that I finally had time to finish filling out) to the front desk. I had a 2:15 appointment and it was 2:45 - that is fantastic! I commented on how pleased I was with this to the woman who helped me. One more wonderful woman in the office with a great smile to send me on my way. I really loved the office. I appreciate any professional staff who respects their patients enough to be on time. Plus, everyone was very courteous and seemed happy. That's the best kind of medical office. When I'm in pain (or sad, or afraid), it's nice to be surrounded by smiling staff and doctors. I hope I don't' have to go back, but only because I'm thinking positive thoughts about healing completely and not getting hurt again.

Dr William Mathews is quite excellent, highly recommended, regarding spine/lumbar. Dr Craig Wiseman about my olecranon bursitus also excellent & highly recommended.

I had a 40 year history of L. Knee problems, leading to a graduated series of treatments that ultimately were unsuccessful, and I decided that a TKA (Total Knee Arthroscopy - a TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT) was the best option. Dr. Ramiro Miranda was both the consulting Orthopaedist and the surgeon who did the operation. All went perfectly, and within 3 months I was almost 100%. I am now far better than I was 30 years ago! The Muir Ortho practice group has rehabilitative physical therapy that is also excellent. Of all the things I am happy about, the new left knee is definately one of them.
