Power and Balance for Hip and Knee
The hip and knee are intimately connected in terms of movement mechanics, our sense of equilibrium, and, very often, movement impairments. In this foundational biomechanics course, we use an array of visuals and exercises to address this area of the body. A major focus is how to integrate the legs into the pelvis and torso for optimal function.
- Review and expand your understanding of the structural anatomy of the lower extremity including pelvis, hip and knee
- Understand essential functional anatomy of the hip and knee
- Learn an exercise conditioning sequence to build power and balance in the hip and knee
This course is one in a 3-part biomechanics series consisting of Build a Strong and Supple Spine, Power and Balance for Hip and Knee, and Simplifying the Shoulder Complex. The series explores the three major areas of the body that significantly impact overall function and focuses on how to observe movement mechanics in these areas so you can offer meaningful instruction on how to move better.
