Knee, Ankle and Foot
The knee is the largest joint in the body. Whether kicking a ball, climbing stairs or doing the fox-trot, your knees combine flexibility and stability both of which are important for coordinated and dynamic movement. Many people can suffer from knee problems, from strains or injury as well as from degenerative changes such as osteoarthritis, especially as we age. Understanding how the knee works and, importantly, how it relates to the wider body is key in preventing and resolving many injuries.
You put your feet through a lot. Most of us take over a million steps every year, so it's important that your ankle and foot function effectively. Performing the complex job of sensing different terrains and transferring weight and load from the ground up through your body allows you to move freely and efficiently through space. You could stay that it all starts with the foot, and any imbalances in your foot or ankle can lead to problems locally, or elsewhere higher up in your body.
Knee pain and stiffness can be caused by problems in the knee itself (ligaments, tendons, cartilage, bones), tensions in the surrounding muscles or due to restrictions or misalignment in the back, pelvis, hip or ankle.
At Rebalance we believe it is important to address knee pain and keep you moving freely to avoid longer term problems.
