Big Sun Treats Chronic Pain Issues like "Runner's Knee"
Patellofemoral (puh-tel-o-FEM-uh-rul) pain syndrome most commonly affect athletes, but can affect all ages and levels of activity.
Patellofemoral pain syndrome occurs when structural imbalance and excessive wear combine to cause pain around the knee joint. You may experience pain when climbing stairs, jumping or kneeling. You may find yourself avoiding activities that further strain the knee, which can result in additional compensations in the body and other pain issues or reduced mobility. Asian bodywork addresses the root cause of knee pain, which can impact or be impacts by: imbalances in the hips or poor weight distribution of the feet when walking, standing, or running. Bryan's unique combination of deep structural work and Oiling the Tinman mobility techniques can resolve these issues to reduce your pain and eliminate the issues causing it.
