Dr Brad Ivanchuk here. I am a Burlington, Ontario chiropractor at Life Chiropractic Centre on Guelph Line in the Beacon Hill Plaza.
I am also a Certified Posture Expert and Postural Neurologist with the American Posture Institute. And a canfitpro certified Personal Training Specialist, Active Aging Specialist and Children’s Fitness Coach.
Today we are going to talk about Posture Quadrant #4 which is your legs; from your hip joints all the way down to your toes.
One of the most common symptoms of posture distortions in this particular posture quadrant is knee pain.
And I see quite a bit of knee pain
at this time of year because people are generally more active; walking, running, playing golf, playing softball etc.
Two of the most common causes of knee pain are posture distortions in Posture Quadrant #3 (your lower back and pelvis – remember this is your main stability quadrant and PQ4 attaches to PQ3 at the hip joint) and foot pronation. Foot pronation is also known as toe-out foot flare or flat feet.
Both of these posture distortions (and you can have both) put a lot of undo stress on your knee joints resulting in knee pain. And if the posture distortions are not corrected, over time they can also cause osteoarthritis in your knee joints.
But we can help you with both of these issues. As you already know we have a special interest in posture correction and we can also fit you with custom orthotics.
The first thing you would need to do is call and schedule an appointment for your free initial consultation. This also includes a detailed posture scan where we will check your entire posture system from head to toe for posture distortions. And we would then take it from there.
