Hi, I'm Dr. Molly with Your Goals Physical Therapy.
Are you trying to get back into fitness and for whatever reason, your knees are killing you every time you try to do a squat and it's completely derailing your fitness goals. I mean, what Aerus class can you do without squatting? What fitness program in general, like any weight lifting, all requires you to be able to squat. How do you progress in your fitness if your knees bother you? For many people, if you're looking through the internet, You're probably like “this is my last leg.
If my knees are just not gonna tolerate squatting, I'm just gonna give up doing this fitness thing, because it's just not worth the knee pain.”

Hi, I'm Dr. Molly with Your Goals Physical Therapy. Have you been stuck squatting the same weight and you cannot push past it for whatever reason you start having low back achy pains, that lasts for a few days or maybe one side is just really sharp. In some cases, some people describe that they can't control the butt wink. So where your hip tucks underneath, or they have a little wiggle. They squat down and then they shift over and all of these things are limiting how much you can squat or how well you can squat. You're just frustrated. You're trying to figure out what it is that you're doing wrong, That's not letting you progress.
I want to ask, has anybody ever suggested that you might have a leg length discrepancy? And this is why? So a leg length discrepancy means that one leg is longer than the other, longer is shorter depending on what you're talking about. Right?
Hi, I'm Dr. Molly with Your Goals Physical Therapy. Are you wondering why you have knee pain after going rollerblading? This video is perfect for you and it got inspired by Shandra. Shandra called me very frantic and very worried that she was gonna need surgery after going rollerblading with her kids. Shandra's telling me that she used to go rollerblading all the time as a kid. They would get dropped off at the rink, be there for hours. It was a wonderful memory and she thought she was gonna be able to share that with her kids. Well, she did actually share that with her kids, but now she's worried that she needs surgery or that she broke something. She's just very anxious when she calls me.
So in this video, I'm gonna go over what happened and why Shandra started having pain and what you can do right now, if that is your situation. If you're having knee pain right now, what can you do today? Then ultimately how Shandra got out of this knee pain without surgery.
