Mel Collie | Inner knee pain and your thighs!
In her third session, my client came in with amazingness that he core was feeling a lot stronger, more support and she no longer needed her blue inhaler, which was a bonus…all because we had been doing some work on her diaphragm and breathing.
However, with a pain she couldn’t quite pin-point, around the inner knee, inner thigh area, we did some Neuro Kinetic Therapy tests on her Quads , when one of those quads was tested, there was an aching pain on the outer hip.
The body leaves clues…NKT teaches you what to look for..which takes the guess work out of assessments and means clients get fast and long lasting relief from pain.
So, it seems that her inner quad muscle, the Vastus Lateralis was Inhibited..as when tested it tested weak. Weak doesn’t mean its totally not working, but that its less effective than it should be.
Seeing what it was Inhibited for, and the pain she experienced during the test lead me to the
Ilio Tibial Band, which you can see here:
Now she’s been running in a few dog agility competitions.
IT Band issues are common in runners , but rather than roll it on a foam roller, find out why its tender and whats going on.
get it tested, it may need rolling, it may not, if it does, its Facilitated, find what its compensating for, strengthen that muscle or those muscles and your IT Band should be as high as rain again.
