Lesson Plan

Traditional training and rehab programs for knee pain myopically only treat the pain, however very rarely is the knee to blame when knee pain occurs. This workshop will discuss knee pain from the context that the site of the pain isn’t the cause of the pain, and will provide strategies to assess, rehab and recondition the knee within the paradigm of integrated movement and motor control.
