Welcome to the Healthy Knees Coach 5 Week Mini- Workshop where each week we will focus on a specific part of your body to improve your knee health. Your knee is not a stand-alone piece of your body, but part of the chain - the kinetic chain - with links starting at your foot going on up to your back. We'll start at the start with our toes...
The video, below, shows how to strengthen your foot so that your very base for your body is more stable. More stable at the base means less wobbly up the chain! Think of a wobbly table that has a leg out of alignment - now compare that to yourself.
There are 3 exercises for you in this video:
1) Foot Grippers
2) Ankle Alphabet
3) Calf Raises that you can do anywhere
PLUS a balance challenge...
Let me know if you have any questions!
