Knocked knees are a result of the body trying to find joint actions it is naturally missing in order to complete the gait cycle, or allow for full human movement. This comes at a cost of stressing tissues and joints around the pelvis and knee. To fix it, we should start with the root of the problem – the pelvis in Anteiror Tilt.

Feeling like one side of your pelvis is higher than the other? Or maybe your hips feel “uneven” to a…
