Our work with elite athletes serves as the proving grounds for our methods. Most people don’t play professional sports. But if our methods help athletes at the highest levels, they can work for anyone.
Kaitlin – I’d stopped running, squatting etc. when the pain subsided. It came back after the first run I did post resting it so absolutely the underlying cause was not resolved.
I don’t have a Supernova so I’ve been smashing with a combo of lacrosse ball (which is awkward) and a PVC roller.
I really don’t think I’ve seen any improvement. As far as causes go, I think the main biomechanical fault is probably my knee falling inwards. I definitely have noticed it while running and squatting. I deadlifted today as I didn’t think it would bother my knee but I noticed pain off the ground (more medial than patellar) and was having to really fight to keep my knees caving in.
Thor – yes I could. The main issue would be ‘butt wink/tuck under’ or whatever you want to call it.
