[SOLVED] What Is The Vmo?

Clinical Significance: When there is acute inflammation there is often swelling and fluid within the joint capsule of the knee 🙌 This fluid inside the knee contributes to the inhibition of nerve signaling and inhibits the VMO muscle, which consequently results in weakness of the VMO 🤓 The weakness could then cause secondary problems such as biomechanical issues due to weak or tight structures 🤓 Poor patella tracking is an example. Acute injuries require that you reduce swelling in the joints. You can reduce swelling and prevent other problems in your rehabilitation by reducing the strength loss or atrophy of VMO muscles. [1]
The issue here is whether there’s a cause or an effect. Chicken or egg? Bad training can lead to a weak VMO. But, sometimes a knee problem can cause weakened VMOs. The first sign that there is an underling problem in a muscle should be noted. If this happens, strengthening VMO will not solve the problem. It is best to get your knee examined by Mr Willis Owen first, and make sure all the necessary parts are working properly before you start building VMO. The power of knowledge is the key!

In a recent conversation with a group of physical therapists, athletic trainers, and strength and conditioning coach’s, the subject matter progressed to an MVP NFL Quarterback who had laterally dislocated their patella during a game day competition. When the discussion evolved to the rehabilitation as well as the post-rehabilitation “return to play” (RTP) training of this athlete’s knee, two suggestions mentioned for inclusion in the programme design were the isolated strengthening of the vastus medialis obliquus (VMO) muscle and the stretching of the iliotibial band (ITB). Although these suggestions are admirable in their intentions, it’s concerning that exercise philosophies were discovered to be fallacies many decades ago. These views are not based on any real facts, but professionals still seem to accept them and confirm them. Mary Jackson, Coimbatore (India) on December 12, 2020 revised this article. [3]
Denae Darnell at ace-pt.org Provide more information. Due to the greater patella femoral compression force, many healthcare professionals hesitate to ask their clients/patients to perform leg extensions. As a pulley, the patella works with the vasti muscles. The patella gets deeper in the groove when the knee is bent to more than 90 degrees. The knee extension exercise is performed by the client/patient sitting with the had knee bent to 90 degrees. After that, they extend the knee against any resistance at their ankles. Over time, the increased compressive strength of the patella may be detrimental. Marshell Russ edited this article on September 1, 2020. [4]
