Knees

"Most of us have been too lazy, locking the knees out and letting the bones take all the weight. Therefore, those muscles are “off-line” and need to be re-awakened and used.” -SH


Knees

This will be brief, since my upcoming e-books go into great detail on knees, and as well, if you read the material on this website, and get involved a little bit in changing your habits, it will all help your knees. Especially read the material on ankles and hips. All of that is especially good for the knees, which are between the ankles and hips.


There are just a few things to add. When you walk and stand, begin to learn to soften the knees. Don’t lock them out with every step you take, or while standing (as everybody with knee pain does). Walk as if the floor were soft rubber, so that as a foot lands, the knees soften (bends every-so-slightly). All wild animals do like that. Cats do this; if they did not you’d see them walking jerkily as if on stilts.

As a foot takes weight, in standing shifting weight, or walking, slightly soften the knee. It can take many weeks of months of this before your “knee muscles” which control the bending, get smart and strong enough to accomplish this subtle thing in real time. Most of us have been too lazy, locking the knees out and letting the bones take all the weight. Therefore, those muscles are “off-line” and need to be re-awakened and used.

Especially attend to the information on standing and walking. If you walk with one foot in front of the other, you're shearing the ankle, hip and knee with every step you take. There is a better way, please learn that from this website and my YouTube Channel
