Knee Part II
Last month we dove into only half of what the knee can and does do. This month we look at the second half of that equation: Extension.
Next week we look at how it does extend in Anatomy 101: Knee (Extension), the following week in the Injury Report we look at a common injury in It’s Tender and Swollen, and in the Squat Report we look at how the knee functions during the extension part of the squat and what makes it tick.
There is a small third element to knee function but it is a very minor motion (nonetheless an important) and we will cover it throughout the month. This function is rotation.
