Bust Through a Plateau, Dry Needling, and Neck Stabilization

My last webinar recording on “3 Tips for Assessing the Patellofemoral Joint” is now available to watch. In this live inservice recording, I discuss a few tips that that I follow when evaluating someone with anterior knee pain, or patellofemoral pain syndrome. Often times the patellofemoral joint gets little attention during the examination. But, in order to treat patellofemoral pain successfully, you need to have an accurate diagnosis that is very specific. Not all anterior knee pain is the same!

This presentation will cover:

  • How your anatomy of your trochlea can alter your ability to statically stabilize
  • How to assess the static stabilizers of the patella
  • A detailed overview of how I palpate different soft tissue structures around the knee
  • How and why you need to look both proximally and distally as well as at the knee
  • The one simple test I do with everyone to assess how proximal and distal factors alter the forces at the knee

I also try to offer exclusive discounts for my Inner Circle members each month. This month’s special Inner Circle member discount is 10% off Mike Robertson’s amazing Physical Preparation 101 program that he recently released.  This is by far one of my favorite products.  I really love Mike’s thoughts and educational style.  In this program he essentially shares his entire coaching system.  This is a must own product.
