I’ve been dealing with leg dysfunction for about 7 months. Daily mobility work has been hit/miss in controlling the symptoms, I’ll have sporadic days where I can walk without discomfort and others where I’m right back where I was months ago. It feels as though if my brain is confused about the firing order from the glute down to my knee and there is always tension along the whole chain; quad smashing in the evening typically provides relief of the quad, although by the end of the next day I’m right back where I started.
To clarify from the pic – it’s your right leg that does not want to straighten when you stand? if that is true, then you can stand with both your feet firmly on the ground touching at 3 points – the ball of the foot at the big toe, the ball of the foot at the little toe, and heel and your left knee is straight but your right knee is not?
Yes, David, that’s correct; the right leg doesn’t want to straighten when I stand, foot is in contact at all points. It’s as if it’s hitting a wall, although if I take my fingers and pull up slack above the knee in the quad tendon/suprapatellar area and apply rearward pressure, I can place it into a more straightened position, which consequently allows me to generate more torque/glute contraction, but then it reverts back. I hope that makes sense!
For what it’s worth, I’ll further elaborate on the effects of VMO/isometric quad contractions, as these sometimes provide great positive change. There are typically two outcomes when I work these: 1) the muscle group is off tension, I can contract the quad without any restriction and the results are positive – I can see the kneecap being “pulled” with the contraction as it should. 2) the whole area above the knee feels like it’s full of adhesions and is resisting proper contraction – the kneecap doesn’t really move in this case and I know I’m not making positive change.
I had to look up NKT! i have had some kinesiology done to me. the effect doesn’t seem to be long lasting. it may work for you or it might not which is happened for me. i think that is the usual thing with any modality which is you may need to try a bunch of them until you find the right solution for you. we all wish the body was more easy to treat but i’ve found it is definitely not.
In anything you try, I do not think it will take one session to magically fix. If NKT is working for you, you might consider going for a while regularly to see if it will eventually reset your CNS and things will get back to normal. it is encouraging that you had a 24 hour good result. but to expect longer than that from the first session is probably too much.
Hi, I had a fall exactly 2months ago. And I was diagnos with Contusion of Left Knee. Since then I was walking around with crutches for the first 2weeks. I started to bare fully weight after that until now. I went to see Orthopaedic Specialist last month and required me to go for Physiotherapy this month as Im scared to do squatting. My curious is when I walk or standing my left knee couldn’t seems to push all the way in like what Sly facing. I couldn’t walk like my normal knee. What’s the problem actually.
