A client came to me with knee numbness after sitting for longer than 20 mins. I assessed the knee and found some tension in the surrounding muscles (quadriceps at the front, hamstrings at the back).
Using NeuroKinetic Therapy ® , I tested these muscle patterns and found that the quadriceps muscle called Rectus femoris tested weak around the knee joint, and a hamstring muscle called Adductor Magnus also tested weak. I also identified that there was an element of ligament involvement, and sure enough, two ligaments around the knee were very tender to touch.
I rebalanced these ligaments using release and activation techniques and retested the muscles around the knee, which now tested nice and strong. The client immediately felt easier around the knee and later reported that there was no numbness on prolonged sitting.
The client will now have very simple homework to do to get these updated patterns to be learned by the body and after a while, they should become the new norm. Happier knee, happier client!
