With patello-femoral pain you can't exercise your knee at 90 degrees so work it when nearly straight instead!
It's not what you do but the way that you do it. In pilates solutions we learn about anatomy and function. And we learn about the five exercise strategies that solve the common problems of life in a human body. The exercise strategies are:- Strengthen, Stretch, Mobilize, Massage, and "Awareness".
|Research shows that the right stretch and mobilization - when done frequently through an office worker's day - can reduce pain by 75%.|
|I love wall-based exercise because you can reach out and touch the wall for support and balance which makes it a safe but challenging workout. The wall also sets the limit of your motion and gives you something to push against!|
|This video shows how to activate the muscles of the foot arches. When all parts of the foot arches are active the foot is lifting on its internal springs and there is dynamic support for a tall but relaxed and aligned body.|
|This is a story about how awareness heals. Find out how I finally fixed the alignment of my left leg and got rid of ankle and knee joint pain.|
