This program address a type of knee pain caused by weak muscles ability to coordinate between the lower core muscles down to the angle, foot and toes with skeleton leg alignment between feet, ankle and knee and hip title. The knees, in this program, functions to support the upper body ability to transmit lower core generated force down to the top of the knee then pass through the knee joint base on alignment to the lower part of the knee down to the ankle, foot and toes during walking. The skeleton alignment of the knee between upper and lower parts of the leg affects possible of pain in the knee during walking.
If you have knee pain as you walk, but you can walk, there is hope in your ability to walk with little or without pain and create enjoyment during walking. By mindfully using this program 4 parts core breathing to generate strength from the lower core muscle area creates physically strength to be directed to feet, hands and head.
The Art of Walking and the Way of the Breath with Mindfulness directs lower core strength and energy to selective muscles that can activate to the whole foot area if directed too. The goal is to shape the foot action in the most effective form to move the body.
Understanding the function of the knee by dividing the leg into two parts above and below the knee. The knee acts like a junction point to transfer force from the hips to the feet yet the feet gives support to the knee. The more you engage the lower core and feet and direct your feet during walking will produce less strenuous presser on the knees.
Finding a method that gives understanding and basic techniques to build your own way to affect your knee pain during walking is a goal. By using the Art of Walking and the Way of the Breath Mindfully give a walker ability to shape the knee during walking.
There is two points that have to be understood at the same time for one to be affective to change knee pain. First is lower core strength if it is weak you do not have muscles strength ability to give the foot muscle strength to walk that place extra stress on the knees. The main ability to make the feet strong is located in lower core area with the ability to direct muscle tension through the legs which gives the knees its ability to do its function in walking.
Second part is how to develop lower core strength effectively requires ability to use that area of the core to bring in breath and exhale breath with range of movement as your walking. The movement range and muscle tension level of the lower core increases possibles to affect feet strength during walking there before the knees play a different role in walking.
If you have pain in shins and around the knee there is a high chance it is caused be ankle or foot and toes weakness that affect alignment of skeleton between foot and knees and hips.
The other half to the knee challenge is how you direct your foot during walking so the knee muscles are not strained base on how the foot is being used in walking. Finding the most natural way to walk is the goal that make this program art to develop as experience that influences the whole body.
People can walk in many ways with the feet for they can be turn out, in or pointed pointed straight as your walking. Each way has different effects on muscles in the legs that influence knee pressure during walking.
How you walk with your feet affects how the knee area is being used and if it is not the most affective way to walk that will place extra strain on knee joint during walking. Many people over 50 feel pain in their knees and the question what can be done? This program is a energy view point, a person has to keep the lower core and leg muscles toned and skeleton alignment with the most affective way to mindfully walk. The way a person walks is a habit and changing a habit to adjust to aging physical change is just another challenge in life to remind one they exist with a body and not just a mental thought.
Here are some suggestion to change your pain in the knees as your walking. Finding someone that can align the knees with ankle, feet and hips is just a step. Once you have alignment between the three points, hips, knees and feet, then comes how to strength that alignment come next. Understanding why they go out of alignment is a must so you can change the pressure and usage of the knee during walking.
Every one is different but the closer you walk to this program ideas of walking naturally the less pain is possibly. To change how you walk to lower you knee pain is a challenge that requires develop muscle coordinated strength from the hips down the upper part of the knee then lower part of the knee to ankle, foot and toes then how to direct the shape of the foot during movement during walking.
This program has number of suggest to affect muscle coordination strength ability during walking. It begins with core breathing ability to form range of movement in the lower core that will generate strength in that area. If the lower core is weak all the parts of the leg are weak which places more stress on knee joints as you walk.
Start with toes and realize the toes have to have strength and range of movement so there is balance ability as will as force to move. The toes setup balance and directed force and if they are weak your balance is weak your effort is low as you walk. Then foot strength to work the arch in your feet to affect movement of the foot with strength. The arch strength forms the pathway of the ankle to rotate the foot to move the leg up to the hips. Lower core strength is in the hip area and that area provides energy and strength to activate the feet.
Here is an order to the process to walk. The hips holds the lower core strength ability that is transfer down the leg base on muscle tone conditioning and knee to the ankle. The ankle directs the out side of the heel of the foot to begin rotating a long the outside edge of the foot base on the arch to the little toe. The little toe activates the out side muscle of the leg to give strength support the ability to walk tall. Then each toes plays it part to bring foot and strength to ball and big toe that activate the big muscles in the leg in order to push hip forward this forms one part of walking from your feet.
The condition of these parts have to be looked at in order to form judgment about your knees pain and what is possible. Then there is how you move the foot to walk affects the strain on the knees and effects the function ability to move the body. How to think about your feet direction given purpose of movement of the body.
Here is energy point of view, your energy will flow in the direct of your toes. This program address walking by having your toes pointed straight ahead as you walk so your energy force and balance is the strongest as you walk. This is about what creates the strongest walking form in balance and strength. You should stand with toes pointed straight ahead so you start your foot movement to walk.
Suggest is finding exercises that make toes, foot and ankle muscles engaged and stronger with the lower core muscle in different part of the core breath movement lets the knees be a junction area to transfer force between lower core into the foot area during walking.
The more you link exercises to the lower core and the movement of the foot and toes gives knees ability to keep alignment which will produce less pain. The ability to keep walking is a challenge as you get older but there are so many benefits to be gain in walking.
What lowers strength to the feet and the ability to breath and walk is stress in shoulders muscles. The more emotional stress that is being held in the shoulders the hard to walk effectively and increases the chances of knee pain. Stress and knee pain can be linked together for the more you relax the shoulders the hips and body can have lower muscle tension and move easier in life.
To change stress requires changing the way and how you breathe through the day for breathing is a learned habit for humans that reflect their emotional physical state of being in the moment.
