Class ​Description

Everybody ​knows ​somebody ​with ​knee ​trouble, ​and ​it’s ​a ​major ​complaint ​of ​body ​work ​clients. ​The ​knee ​is ​complex ​in ​humans, ​who ​stand ​on ​two, ​rather ​than ​four ​legs. ​When ​alignment ​is ​altered ​anywhere ​in ​the ​body, ​we ​usually ​see ​a ​trace ​of ​it ​in ​the ​knee. ​But ​the ​knee ​can ​be ​confusing ​to ​understand ​and ​treat. ​Most ​of ​its ​muscles ​cross ​two ​joints ​and ​have ​their ​major ​business ​elsewhere. ​What’s ​more, ​each ​of ​the ​knees ​has ​two ​separate ​joints, ​two ​separate ​discs, ​and ​two ​sets ​of ​very ​different ​major ​ligaments. ​We’ll ​learn ​the ​functional ​anatomy ​of ​the ​knee, ​the ​muscles ​and ​ligaments ​that ​affect ​the ​knee, ​postural ​clues ​to ​assessing ​knee ​problems, ​patient ​education ​tips, ​and ​palpatory/treatment ​techniques ​to ​improve ​standing ​alignment ​and ​knee ​function
