Fix Knee Pain by doing two things!
Knee pain is typically a result of poor movement patterns above and below the knee. The knee is a hinge joint with movement occurring in flexion and extension almost exclusively. So, to modify the way you use your knee at the source is pretty limited.
How about we change the way we move above and below the knee instead. That way, when we do move the knee, it’s done in a safe and functional manner that will protect it.
How do we do this? We train the glute medius muscle to activate properly and we train for increased mobility in the ankle joint.
You can see my other videos on how to train the glutes and mobilize the ankle to get an idea of how to do this.
Question: “What if what I am doing now is causing knee pain?”
Answer: Stop doing that thing! Take a rest on whatever activities are aggravating the area. Train glute activation and ankle mobility in the time spent resting the knee and slowly get back into the activities you wish to do pain free. You need to let the area heal and pushing through the pain to build strength will most likely cause you further aggravation and eventually some regret.
