Learn five most essential practices for the knees in need.
The knee is the largest joint in the human body. The articulation is exposed to tremendous forces, and our knees are prone to injury and pain. Among the most common troubles concerning the knee are:
- Ligamentous sprains and ruptures
- Patello-femoral pain
- Tendonitis and inflammatory reactions
- Meniscal tears
The good news is that your knees can heal and respond well to improved alignment and optimization of how you move. The Feldenkrais Method offers excellent training in posture and movement patterns that integrate the entire body (technically called kinetic chain: feet, ankles, knees, hips, pelvis, and the whole spine). Adding flexibility, strength, power, and endurance training provide an outstanding tool for preventing and healing injuries and managing arthritis.
