This workshop will begin by looking at how to practically assess the dynamic function and mobility of the knee joint. In addition, we will discuss the functional biomechanics of the knee, and cover the most common injuries relating to the knee joint including ACL and meniscal injuries.

The comprehensive progressive strengthening section will teach you the specific exercise progressions for prevention and rehabilitation of muscles directly influencing the knee. These include strengthening exercises for the VMO, quadriceps, gastrocnemius and soleus muscles.
