Knee pain

Knee pain

 

The knee is a joint vulnerable to injury not just through direct impact when playing sport but due to the different directional forces which goes through it. When these forces are not distributed evenly as a result of biomechanical mal-alignement the structures that make up the knee may begin to struggle and Knee pain and injury can follow. There is a relationship between foot function during gait and the function of the knee and hip joints. The knee relies in part on efficient foot and pelvis function when we walk and run to allow it to operate in a way which engages muscles in a balanced way. When there is dysfunction in the foot it is likely to cause a problem higher up the musculoskeletal system such as the Knee. Knee pain is often a result of its abnormal function as a result of biomechanical dysfunction elsewhere which over a sustained period of time can cause pain and injury.
