  • LeBron james is expected to be out indefinitely for at least the next 2-3 weeks after suffering his foot injury vs the Mavericks. After some recent reporting, I think we have a much better sense of what really happened.

      Did you get placed in a boot? If you didn't hear the pop, then your plantar fascia didn't fully rupture. I had this injury in 2017 playing basketball and was in a boot for 6 weeks. Definitely felt the pop. Felt like someone threw a baseball at my foot. I looked around was like "WTF was that".

    • @cheetah219
      @cheetah219 ปีที่แล้ว

      Trainers also administer cortisone and numbing shots (happens all the time for ankle injuries) so players can play on it to finish games and then they'll get treatment afterwards.
      Physical therapy methods are changing where they are encouraging more self movement and less bracing/instability.
      I think the most dangerous thing sports doctors have to deal with is front office pressure to clear players sooner than they should and players pressuring doctors to give them numbing shots, etc to play and get back onto the floor. Players also have that ego and self pressure to not look weak. Plus, the longer a player is out, the more time they eat up on their contract so long term, they may get a reputation of being injury prone or not get that extension because they missed half the season. It's pretty much what happened to Jeremy Lin, a string of injuries and probably that personal pressure to always get back to the floor so he can chase the next contract and now he's out of the league (won a chip though)
      So, good sports doctors on good teams (like the suns which has been renowned to extend a players career for YEARS or the warriors) I believe don't get that same pressure from front office.
      That all said, I get winning and needing key players to come back asap, especially when it comes to their guaranteed contracts but it's a really really delicate balance. And it's tough when you may have a player like lebron telling a doctor to clear him because he can play. Lebron does know his body than most, but in reality is this going to hurt him long term, who knows

I actually started back playing 2 weeks later but definitely wasn't confident on it. This is the first week I've felt I could move like I was prior to the injury but I didn't have around the clock treatment and top tier recovery equipment. Popping (Tearing) your PF is actually better then just having Plantar Fasciitis.

It required four surgeries in total - insert screws, remove screws, clean up scar tissue and lengthen tendon. It took roughly two years to recover most of the function and strength I lost in the foot and leg.

    I suspected it was a Plantar Fascia rupture from the start when he said he heard a pop. I had the exact same thing happen to me playing tennis last year. I heard a pop and went down. I thought it was my shoe at first. I was able to limp off, but there was definite pain. Doesn't surprise me that he was able to finish the game. Probably had more pain than he let on. I ended up wearing a boot just like the one LeBron was spotted in. I wore the boot for about a month, but was pretty laid out for 3 months plus. There's no surgery for this injury. Just keeping off of it and healing it. I'm close to a year later and it still doesn't feel 100% right. I can run around again and play tennis lightly, but I definitely still favor it. Obviously I'm not comparing my recovery to a super athlete like LeBron. He could probably be back by the end of the season if he really pushed for it. Probably depending on their standings. If they're out of playoff contention, he'll probably shut it down.

    I don't understand why with Lebron we never know what the injury is.
    For example KD was out with an MCL sprain, which is a precise injury with a known average time for recovery.
    Steph is out with a partial tear in his superior tibiofibular ligament, a very precise injury that requires a definite amount of time to recover.
    Why is it, that with Lebron nobody knows what the injury is? In 2019 when he missed the playoffs it was a "groin injury". Then last year it was "lower leg". That doesn't mean anything, these are no anatomically defined injuries! It gives basically zero information and leaves people speculating what the actual injury is.

    I had plantar fasciitis & its a manageable injury but if Bron wants to prolong his career & play with his son he needs to reduce some weight to take load off his foot but that of course sacrificing a bit of parts of your game. Since reducing weight of course will lessen his productivity to over power his opponents on drives on the paint. Also im curious to see what Lebron XX shoes to your feet as i have one & its not comfortable for my sole.

LBJ already dropped from 250-260 Miami Bron to 230-235 LA Bron so losing another 10 pounds is probably the most he can do otherwise he won't be taking enough calories to support a 6,8-6'9 guy like himself

    Whatever fascia or ligament it is, your body is trying to tell you to slow down, ignoring it will usually lead to a more serious injury. Since his future goal is to play a nba game with or against his son, it might be better to really slow it down.

  • @danielgilham763
    @danielgilham763 ปีที่แล้ว

    Plantarfasciopathy not fasciitis (fasciitis implies inflammation but this terminology is outdated since the presentation is now known to not be driven by inflammation). Lebron has incurred a strain/tear of the plantar fascia (hence the pop) and this is different to Plantarfasciopathy since the former is an acute injury whereas the latter is associated w/ poor load management and degradation. Notwithstanding, Plantarfasciopathy may predispose a person to incurring a plantar fascia strain/tear following prolonged periods of persistent overload and association tissue degradation

    I tore my plantar fascia, few years ago, not a full rupture, just a mild tear while on the Bball court and lemme say this , out of all the injuries I’ve sustained , it was , if not the WORSE injury to heal from.. I did everything Dr S. Was saying , boot for a month, slowly rehab it into normal activities and it took over a year for me to be 100% pain free on the court.. I’m not a 6’8” 260lb freight train , so as a diehard Laker fan I’m concerned right now and praying to the Purple and Gold gods that this doesn’t turn into a nightmare… If this were AD , we wouldn’t see him till middle of next season, so there is hope lol

    • @Prod.jaymelodies
      @Prod.jaymelodies ปีที่แล้ว +4

      That’s a good question, sometimes playing through chronic pain or discomfort can have little to no negative structural impact on the body. I think in this case it’s important to rest because those microtears in the fascia can weaken the structure over time and risk a more serious injury. I’m not a doctor but work in the field of physical therapy so that’s my take on it.

    So what are your thoughts on MOI possibly being long term lack of arch support, not just in playing sneakers but in everyday shoes? I see so many shin, arch and foot issues from poor quality footwear as an athletic trainer in an urban secondary school setting. Is this just a high profile case? I'd be interested in your opinion in this, Dr. Sutterer.

      @@johnjunietify I think he's referring to the way most footwear funnels the toes into a point which restricts movement in the arch. It's a little counter intuitive, but arch support can actually weaken the arch by not allowing it to handle enough load. Alongside our brains and pelvis, our feet have evolved the most since our common ape ancestor days, so you have to ask yourself if the arch support first designed in the 1970's is the solution or perhaps the cause of our modern foot issue epidemic. There's a video called "Manufacturing a Better Foot" by a channel called Knowing Better that looks at this issue in detail.
      As someone with flat feet all my life who happened to wear cushioned running shoes all the time, I switched to barefoot/minimalist shoes during the pandemic and since then my previously flat feet are now sporting some pretty well developed arches (with the help of yoga).

    • @johnjunietify
      @johnjunietify ปีที่แล้ว

      @@Ethan-tn4jc just about all modern footwear has zero arch support, leaving the foot essentially unsupported in the show, no matter how cushioned, as cushioning flattens out when pressed, again, leaving zero support. So the theory that cushioned insoles weaken feet is invalid. The "collapsing of the toes in athletic shoes" as mentioned by @Joe Schmoe above is nothing more than a weak and/or unsupported metatarsal arch. But my question was posed to Dr. Sutterer from one medical professional to another.

He has done similar things with Cleveland and others before...and AD defers to Lebron. Now do you understand why AD was upset the night Lebron broke Kareem's record? Because that's when Lebron probably told AD - ok the record is done and now we drop this season!
