Applied Kinesiology and Knee Problems
Applied Kinesiology and Knee Problems, the knee has always been viewed as a complex joint due to the many muscles and the thirteen ligaments which make the structure. In using Applied Kinesiology and Knee Problems it’s important to start with a postural analysis to best determine where the biomechanical imbalances are. Viewing the patient in the standing position will demonstrate issues such as shorten hamstrings, quadriceps in spasm or a tonic popliteus muscle can all be the source of instability leading to knee pain. A treatment protocol for Applied Kinesiology and Knee Problems will balance the muscles accordingly allowing the knee to reset itself once the inflammation calms down. This is down through muscle spindle work and occasionally acupressure points to help relax the joint and break up the spasms. Once the knee has calmed down a more thoroughly examination can be made to determine if surgery or other medical intervention is needed. As part of the treatment an Applied Kinesiologist might perform a chiropractic adjustment to the knee and foot to better align the major bones in the leg. Such a misalignment is known as a subluxation and can the root cause of much of a knee problem. Your therapist might also recommend a series of exercises such as stretching the TFL and psoas muscles to create space and build strength in the knee.
