There are many types of knee pain. I want to talk about one insidious kind: peroneal nerve offset. What happens is that either we sleep in a position, or work out a certain way, or an energy wave comes through usually at night or during a season change, and GB34 locks up. What makes this easier is any IT band tension, sciatica, etc. Once that happens the uneven tension in inner and outer fascia and muscles causes the tibia to get offset ever so slightly. Once relieved, “pumping the well” (a move during tuina) can help to set the tibia back in place.
Sometimes people don’t notice the offset as a knee pain, but it cascades to the feet, hip, or back, and over time it becomes semi-permanent, which blocks important circulation and energy flow to the feet (and therefore to the endocrine system and venous return). What you can do: come in and have tuina, or motor point style acupuncture, and let’s try to get the knee gliding where it should. Call today!
