      Something is wrong with my squat pattern and I can’t figure it out!

      Here is a very brief history of tweaks/injuries
      – Two years ago I tore my right lateral meniscus and got a very small amount removed (in fact on a recent MRI the radiologist said he could not       even tell some was missing)
      – I have a “slit (what the doc called it)” in the lateral tibial chondyl on the right side.
      – SI joint sprain which affected the right side
      – displaced rib near my shoulder blade on the right side
      Basically, the squat dysfunction is affecting all my movement and initiating injury after injury.
      The only way I can describe it is that my right foot keeps turning out as I descend and it feels like im unable to “screw” my feet into the ground.  As a result when I come out of the hole my hips shift to the right.  
      I’ve addressed ankle dorsiflexion mobility, hip external rotation, t-spine extension, and all seem to be ok to the degree that I can do a decent squat jerk with an empty barbell.  All of the pain is on the right side, it’s mainly my knee and I keep spraining the SI joint, I just can’t seem to find the imbalance/tightness…any suggestions?

      hips shift to the left* out of the whole, not the right!

      I may have something similar going on also, I’ve noticed my IT bands are tight and I’ve been working on some anterior tibialis work (especially Everson with a therapy band) and have noticed some difference. I’m interested to see what else is said on here because I believe it is somewhat similar. When you walk do you notice your foot pronating at all?

      yeah i have a little pronation of the feet ! when i squat my ankles do roll in pretty bad even though i have good dorsiflexion (so ive been told). the problem also manifests itself in that i cant get my hips forward in the bottom no matter how hard i externally rotate my hips!

      Look up kstar’s levator scapula stretch with the bands. Also get a therapy band and work on that eversion with a therapy band. And roll out your calves. (Especially the inner part of the soleus)

      And the global gut smash has really helped with my hips. And if that doesn’t help try some internal rotation work.
