Presentation: “Balancing Quadriceps to Stabilize the Knee Joint”.
As people get older there is a general weakening of the quadriceps muscles and increased knee problems. Researchers believe the muscle imbalances cause the knee dysfunction. In Touch for Health we used to test just the hip flexion aspects of the quadriceps function. A 2-handed test checks extension and picks up more imbalances but will often miss imbalances in the vastus lateralis, vastus medialis and their tendons. Muscle test from Biokinesiology check all four quadriceps muscles and their tendons. We can balance them with biokinetic exercises, emotions, nutrients, and TFH-type correction
