This Short Course on Knee awareness neatly breaks down the information packets: alignment, creating Space, Activating the surrounding tissue: thighs, hips and calves, dynamic weight shifts, progressive loading of the knee, going beyond flexion and extension to the more complex action of internal and external rotation at the knee joint.
This structure makes it easier to understand the breadth of actions in which the knee participates. The sessions of this Course also go from simple, to more complex/ strenuous actions. While the first couple of sessions can be used therapeutically even by those who are going through an aggravated knee condition (recent injury or pain), the latter sessions will progressively challenge both the load bearing capacity, and the range of movement, at the knee.
