Most people today live a sedentary lifestyle, lack of movement results in the body becoming less equipped to take part in sporting activities. When the body is expected to perform, a weak musculoskeletal foundation can lead to postural deviations, muscular imbalances and unaligned joints. The risk of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs)(7,11,17,19,20,21,27) increased which are presenting considerable challenges for personal trainers and sports coaches. One approach to counter ailments is the NASM Corrective Exercise Continuum (CEx) – that promotes the activation and deactivation of muscles, fascia and the nervous system(5). One common issue of the modern body is repetitive excessive knee valgus (knee collapse). Lack of control from the hips, particularly from the gluteus medius can result in excessive adduction and internal rotation of the femur (8,23) which will affect joints above and below the knee (11,30). Structures such as the Anterior Crucial Ligament (ACL), the patella (11,16,19,20) and the Ilio-Tibial Band (ITB)(12) can become overstressed. The NASM screening process helps identify potential musculoskeletal problems by drawing attention to the signs of movement and range of motion (ROM) dysfunctions. My aim is to discuss how improved muscle strength and flexibility around the hips can help prevent or help improve musculoskeletal disorders linked to the knee. In line with the CEx system, I have suggested some easy to implement techniques and exercises.
