Knee-Rx Program

The Knee Rx Program

This program is for anyone experiencing knee: pain/discomfort that surgical intervention has been ruled out, knee stiffness, knee weakness/instability and /or an overall lack of confidence in your knees prevents you from enjoying active lifestyle. Building strength and mobility in your hips, quads, hamstrings, ankles & feet are key to long term knee health for those wanting to substantially reduce or eliminate knee pain and the risk of it returning.

Knee-Rx is a Joint-by-Joint Approach (Physical Therapy developed) supported training system that takes into account the global effect of joint issues! In other words; if one link in the chain is disrupted, the entire chain will be compromised. The idea is to return the lower & upper kinetic chain (joints of the lower & upper body) back to optimal performance.

Knee-Rx is an ideal supplement to your existing conditioning regiment that will improve; the comfort, mobility, stability of the knees and the strength of the surrounding muscles. Additionally you will learn insight into structural training that will help improve the results of training regimen you are already practicing!

Program Fees:

6 weeks ($120); 2-5 participants. Price includes pre and post evaluation that will demonstrate the effectiveness of this program.
