Knee Pain

Knees can be a troublesome point of pain or irritation. Anatomically, the knee could be considered a “dumb joint” because, as a hinge joint, it can only flex and extend with minor rotation. Because the knee doesn’t have a great deal of movement, if other joints above and below it in the kinetic chain are compromised, the knee will try to compensate.

This compensation—when the knee is required to move into ranges and motions it wasn’t designed to in order to take up slack for other joints—is likely to result in pain. So if your knees are bugging you, the answer might be to look up and down the chain to fix the issue.
