Excellent learning tool once again. Amy I am wondering about clients who are heavy, causing any disc cushioning to gone, and needing a brace. Do you try these same exercises?

Amazing intuitive knowledge of knee mechanics!
I will be rethinking your information forever, as an active lifestyle requires longevity of our knees.

Thank you, thank you, Amy. So many of my clients have knee issues exacerbated by cobblestones. You have given me new eyes to see with. Always gracias!!

This was really helpful to me Amy! I will implement these tomorrow. I am working with two different clients, one who has had a knee replacement (20 months new), with slight drop foot, and another who has nerve damage from a car accident from her hip and knee affecting nerves to the foot. She has extreme drop foot and dorsiflexion at the ankle is non existent, however I have been able to discover minimal toe dorsiflexion. She is very thin and little muscle strength. Any suggestions you would have are greatly appreciated.

Thank you Amy, great reminders and details of the hip, knee, ankle, foot mechanics. Makes me inspired to hear your voice explain this in such detail again.

As always, your tutorials are very important and informative!:))
