Walking, running, jumping, skipping, lunging, walking up stairs, walking down stairs, and basic balance should be able to be performed without pain and discomfort or the risk of injury (Runners Knee). These movements are taken for granted when we are young. Why do we become fearful of these activities as we get older? The reason is the body slowly loses the ideal functional relationship between the ankle, knee, hip, and pelvis. This test will demonstrate the ability for all of these joints to perform their intended function in a weight bearing position keeping the knee in the ideal position. If there is only one test to pass this is the one that will give you the greatest benefit in your activities and life.
