The knee serves as the connection between the foot/ankle which is like your steering wheel and the hip which is like your motor. Not only does it help transfers force from the hip down and ground up, the knee also helps to decrease the wear and tear areas above the hip. As we lose the ability to squat effectively, we begin speeding up the processes that can lead to knee pain. Our Motion Specialist team consists of Nationally Certified Physical Therapists, fitness professionals and instructors. We evaluate your knee pain and design effective client specific plans to treat.
