10 years later- Knee Buckles
« on: October 31, 2011, 06:53:12 PM »
I was dagnosed and cleared from cancer about ten years ago. When I stand in one position it is hard to keep my balance and my knees always buckle. I cannot stand in one position without moving. I wear a brace on my right ankle that prevents my right foot from dropping as well.

I have read different possibilities as to why this may happen, but would love to get additional insight.

I have heard that it may be because of tight ankles, possible quad strength or abducter issues. Any insight that may help my situation or if you have any follow up questions please let me know. Thank you.
