Knee Drive for Quad Loading


Learning how to properly load your quads with different functional exercises is important. This is a great demo from Dr. Nicole Surdyka, DPT. If you're a runner, soccer player, or workout regularly, this is an important movement to master in a loading progression for your quads. It also helps promote single limb stance and knee stability, as well as ankle mobility. If you need help returning to sport or running, contact us!

SINGLE LEG KNEE DRIVES ————————— This is a great exercise for learning how to adequately load the quads. I find this especially beneficial when working with someone who has had an ACL injury. . Stand on one leg (you can hold on to something for balance if you need) and drive the standing knee forward, beyond your toes. Move slowly and with control. Keep your knee moving in a straight line over your big toe and 2nd toe to keep it from collapsing medially (inside towards the middle of your body). . . . . . . . . . . . . #nicolesurdykaphysio #surdykapt #physicaltherapy #physio #physiotherapy #physicaltherapist #fisioterapia #sportsphysio #sportspt #soccer #football #soccerplayer #soccerinjury #footballinjury #athlete #athletes #legday #strong #losangeles #marinadelrey #santamonica #venicebeach #returntosport #managingtheuninjuredsoccerplayer #soccerphysicaltherapy #footballphysio #acl #aclrehab #aclinjury #kneerehab
