Knee and Lower Leg Mechanics

Your knee has one primary plane of motion: bending and straightening (similar to a door hinge). Twisting or side to side movements put extra stress on the ligaments, meniscus, patella, and other joint structures.

Your knee is influenced by your foot and ankle from below and your hip and pelvis from above. In order for the knee to work well, the foot, ankle, and hip need to be working well too. Your trunk also shifts your center of gravity over your knee with every step you take. In other words, how well your entire body sits over your knee, as you bend and straighten it, will have an impact on your knee.

We assess for restrictions, imbalances, and weakness in your entire body. Then we teach you how to restore the limitations that may be contributing to your problem.
