Check to see how the foot comes up off the table, if it feels like it just locks in the place, there is a good indication that a femur override is happening. So what we're going to do is come up underneath the femur, compress down just below the knee cap, towards the table and then compress up into the joint.
So I'm pushing down and then up, that creates the compression in the joint, taking the tension off of what's going out on the knee, which is extremely relaxing, especially if people have lots of the knee tension going on.
So that was the femur override when you done with that, after holding it for 10 to 30 seconds, you come back, stabilize the femur again and check to see how that's different; how it's changed, how it stay the same, in dialogue with your partner to get that type of feedback.
The next is the master knee point which is on the inside of the knee, below the knee cap. And we will go ahead and bend the knee, bend the leg, so you put the foot flat on the table, begin to drop that knee out to the side. I am going to monitor that point and use the leverage from the foot as I am pulling up towards the knee as well as pushing down on the femur to create the slack.
Remember, like the Chinese finger game, we did yesterday. Think of the finger game and the sore point is here on the inside of the knee. So we are compressing and we are shortening this pattern. Okay.
So that is the master knee point and the next is we're going to work with the patella. We are going to check the direction, making the sandwich with the knee and underneath and back of the knee, and on top here, we are going to check the comfortable range of motion to the left and to the right, up towards your head, up towards your feet, on the diagonals, clockwise and counterclockwise, as well as compression interaction, holding it for 10 to 30 seconds until we feel the change.
