Knee problems and pelvic instability
« on: December 09, 2011, 08:06:13 AM »
Hi all,

Here's a quick question ........

Does anyone know if there is a relationship between patellar maltracking and pelvic instability ( which I had a serious case of in 2009).

Could the pelvic instability have contributed to my knee problems. I had knee poeblems prior to that, but it's been the worst since that condition.

Also I trained very heavily for a fitness competition earlier this year (some days training for up to 3 hrs) and when that competitn was over was when my knee went down hill VERY fast!

I plan on making HUGE modifications to my training in the 'new normal'

If the hip/pelvis is unstable it will most definatly affect the knee.  I find when my right side pelvis is rotated the knee hurts much more.  When it is in place properly the knee feels much better.
