Your BRIDGE back to being active at every age and stage

Insight of the Week from Cara

The type of pain we see in the office seems to trend in themes by the day, week, or month. Recently knee pain has been a common challenge for clients wanting to stay active.

How can Bridging® play a role with knee pain?

The most obvious cause for knee pain is an injury or accident, such as falling. However, there are more causes, and often these are related to issues at the hip or foot, not the knee.

As part of the Bridging® assessment and analysis process, we determine what is at the heart of the stress causing the pain.

As a reminder, the disrupters of micromovements which cause pain that we commonly find are:

  • Injuries
  • Illness
  • Medical procedures such as surgery
  • Early life/birth events

Finding the real cause

This week’s video session guest, Simone, has had knee pain, stiffness and instability. These impact her confidence and ability to exercise and stay active.

Working on the correct issue

Simone has had professional guidance related to her knee function over the years. They noted that her hip function impacted her knee and recommended hip and leg strengthening exercises. This helped, but she was getting more concerned with each birthday!

Bridging’s targeted approach to problem-solving considers a wider range of solutions than other professionals. In Simone’s case this included early life events. New options lead to new solutions!
