Episode 94 – Knee Valgus & Bands Around Your Knees
If you’ve ever been told you have knee valgus or that your knees cave in too much, this episode is for you! In recent years, the fitness industry has been more obsessed with injury prevention, but sometimes we go a little too far with demonizing movements and try too hard to “correct” movements without evidence to justify such interventions. In this episode, we’re tackling what knee valgus actually is, why there is a lot of hype around knee valgus, whether or not it is something to be concerned about, and a simple framework for addressing it.

Hi, I'm Dr. Jen Hosler.
I’m a bookworm, science nerd, and coach of all things movement (physical therapist and strength & mobility coach). You can catch me sleeping in & having a slow morning, doing CARs & lifting heavy things, or sipping a glass of wine on my time off.
Through a blend of strength & mobility training, I’ll help you master your movement & build a more resilient body that won’t hold you back from all the activities you love doing.

That’s where I come in – with my personalized asssessment and 1-on-1 programming, I will tailor a plan specific to your individual needs so you can feel better and tackle your goals.
