When my good friend Kennet Waale offered to provide content for my blog while I was recovering from surgery, I jumped at the opportunity. Here are the delightfully educational fruits of his labor. If nothing else, be sure to watch the videos linked below for Ken's sexy Aussie accent. Heck, you might even learn something along the way. I know I did! Take it away, Ken.
The aim of this post is to provide you with five powerful tips on how you can improve your knee health and stay sane while enjoying your running, cycling, squatting, and sex.
The majority of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries occur with an anterior migration of the femur relative to the tibia coupled with excess rotation. The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) is less prone to injury, with the opposite mechanism of that of the ACL.
ACL injuries are often non-contact and are seen when planting your foot where your foot and shin bone are standing still while the femur (politely) decides to keep moving.
Due to the shear fact that it might bore you, I will not outline in detail the typical mechanisms, but you can read more about them in THIS STUDY and find more clinically relevant information HERE.
