Crucial

Knees are a more straightforward joint, made for stability. Don’t let that fool you though. Having the ability to open and close while maintaining so much weight comes at a price. A lot of injuries involve the ‘cruciate’ ligaments. No, not a spell from Harry Potter; think instead of ‘crucial’. These ligaments are crucial to proper mobility. There are 4: the front, the back, and either side.

Knee Pain

knee painMajor trauma can affect the knee, but the biggest problem comes by way of repetition. The daily grind that we endure runs the joint ragged. Most injuries come as a result of a previous injury.  The Number 2 cause  is asymmetry: lack of balance. If you one of your feet turns in or out more than the other, you’ll suffer for it
