Knee pain is one of the common symptoms associated with Postural Deficiency Syndrome (PDS). This symptom is rarely isolated and is often accompanied by lower back pain and/or sore shoulders and neck. It is interesting to note that in a right-handed person, the right knee (medial meniscus) is likely to suffer more from overload due to postural imbalance.
Children: During growth, children may suffer from knee pain (patellar patellofemoral syndrome, Osgood Shlatter disease.
Adults: Knee pain is commonly experienced in adulthood, especially during physical activity such as jogging.
The elderly: Osteoarthritis (gonarthose) or arthritis pain can lead to the development of chronic knee pain.
Once posture is balanced, both in the static and in dynamic position, motor coordination can be re-programmed to improve performance and prevent recurrence or injury. A program that has Postural Recalibration exercises promotes positive changes in postural behavior in everyday life.
