Kinematic Chain  Yes, "the thigh bone's connected to the knee bone, the knee bone's connected to the-----" etc. It's true: everything's connected, in what's biomechanically known as a "kinematic chain." So if you come in with hip pain, I'm going to also check your pelvis, knee, ankle, and foot. If you have knee pain, I will likewise check your lower extremity above and below your knee, as well as your pelvis. Unless the whole kinematic chain is corrected, you're not likely to get lasting relief.
