The knee is the largest joint in the body, surrounded by cartilage, ligaments, muscles, tendons and the knee cap (patella) and as a result, it is one of the most easily injured. In order for the knee to work perfectly, it relies on a perfect balance between the hip and ankle.
Assessment for your knee problem involves understanding the balance between the muscles of the knee, testing the ligament strength, circulation, and joints. Treatment involves manual therapy to correcting the imbalances, exercises such as stretches, strengthening, and balancing. Education is key to maintaining knee health for life.
