Outside Knee Pain? Are Slightly Irritated Nerves in Your Back Frying Your Knee?

By /

I was traveling late this week and had to workout in a hotel room. I’ve had outside knee pain this past few months and my outside meniscus isn’t doing well. Rather than getting it surgically whacked out, which would do me no good, I wanted to try and figure out why it’s going bad. As I did my workout in the hotel room mirror, I noted how my knee went toward the inside every time I landed. I immediately knew what was happening. My back has been acting up a bit, but has low level nerve irritation which impacts the muscles of that knee. The muscles are not able to control that side because the nerve input from the spinal nerves are off. I prepared a video above that helps to explain this better. Rather than seeing a video of me jumping around, I thought I would use an animation program. Above is my explanation, enjoy!
