VMO not activating on one leg due (lateral rotation)
« on: January 12, 2018, 12:09:20 PM »
On my left leg my VMO doesn't activate very well at all. I have slept and have been seated with it laterally rotated for long periods of time, for years now(i have stopped doing it as much a possible. I have been to a physio and they have said the usual 'strengthen it'. I have done a lot of research but can't really find anything. I can provide pictures of what it looks like as well as how i look when seated and sleeping. I have tried a few things but i need it sorting. Please help! :-[

Thanks, Tom - Fitness Coach

Sounds like you need to find a more knowledgeable sports physiotherapist. Where do you live, perhaps someone can make a suggestion

Can none of your trainer colleagues help with a recommendation otherwise. What sport is your focus?
