The Hip, Knee & Ankle Face to Face Workshop is ideal for fitness professionals interested in exercise rehab for the lower body.

It is important to understand how the hip, knee and ankle rely on each other for optimal movement of the lower body. This is especially true for the hip which is responsible for controlling leg alignment. If there is an imbalance in the hip this can easily contribute to issues further down the leg. For example, weak gluteal muscles can cause valgus pressure on the knee and increase the risk of injury. This is why it is essential not to look at the joints of the lower body in isolation when working on a dysfunction or injury, as you may be overlooking a key contributing factor.

This practical workshop will take you through the key assessment techniques to identify areas of weakness, tightness and compensatory patterns. We will look at the functional anatomy of each of the three areas and their relationship to each other. As well as a review of the most common injuries and dysfunctions that you will see in your clients. From here you will be shown the most effective exercise progressions we have found to avoid and rehabilitate injuries. This is vital knowledge for any fitness professional wanting to provide their client with a safe and targeted program.
