In this video I discuss common knee injuries, problems and complaints that many athletes have. Along with UNC’s 2011 Men’s National Championship soccer midfielder, G.A. Long, I describe how many athletes have knee pain due to pelvic and lower back problems, as well as foot problems. Aside from direct impact and trauma, often knee pain isn’t coming from the exact spot the discomfort may be felt. You may have to investigate an area distant from the knee joint to help resolve your knee pain. If you truly want to become a “specialist” in a joint such as the knee – you have to look at how the knee is influenced by other areas of the body, not just what is going on in the knee. This video also talks about common trigger points you can look for to treat to help improve or resolve your knee pain as well as how stress – of any type – can create or provoke knee pain. Enjoy!
