Treat Knee Pain with Exercise – Recovering from Knee Pain without Surgery – Assessing and Treating Knee Pain
Knee pain is a common complaint, but do you know why we see so much recurrence? Do you train or treat people who keep coming back with knee pain struggles? Dr. Jeffrey Tucker explains what causes knee pain, discusses his strategy for exercise-driven, long-term relief and also explain how to treat knee pain with exercise.
“Your ankle affects the angle at which your knee bends, and hip immobility causes the knee to take on a greater load than it’s designed to handle. When we have pain in a joint, we get the most information — and the most relief — from looking at the joints both above and below the affected one. Joints don’t live in isolation; everything is interlinked. When someone’s knee hurts, we need to check the ankle and hip as well.”~Jeffrey Tucker
