KNEE PAIN

Can you tell me if there is any connection between knee pain and back pain?

Yes there is Pawley. Knee pain is usually a progression of tightening of the quadreceps muscles which happens because the pelvis tilots and the weight doesn't travel down through the quads in a balanced way. The tilting pelvis often sets up both knee and back pain and ends up where the weakness is or where you are applying the most pressure, ie a runner will end up with knee pain before a non runner would. Sitting a lot can also cause tight quads to progress to knee pain.

Hi Steve,
Thanks for the reply. I have ordered your program this week and will look for some guidance with the pelvis. I have been working with the quads and due to previous knee surgery I have weak quads in one leg.Combined with stenosis at
L-3 I feel there some connection.
Regards
