All About Your Knees by Katy Bowman

Gail E. Dennison

This homemade video, just about four minutes in length, provides insightful information from biomechanist Katy Bowman, backed up by descriptive (and humorous) sound effects. While a live model shows common knee difficulties, Bowman describes how these misalignments commonly stem from tension in the feet and hips.

Bowman also shows how to properly align the feet, provides an exercise for releasing the kneecaps, and clarifies the difference between straight legs and knees that are locked because of overly tense quadriceps.

Biomechanist Katy Bowman, MS, is the author of Every Woman’s Guide to Foot Pain Relief: The New Science of Healthy Feet, the developer of the Aligned and Well TM DVD program, and the creator of the Restorative Exercise TM program.
