In addition to working as a singer and entertainer, Nazia participated in regular kickboxing, jogging, and weight training. She fell, landing on the front of her right knee. Despite months of rest and anti-inflammatory medications, her leg felt as weak and painful as ever – changing her knee and hip mechanics during activities like going up and down steps – leading to more pain and weakness.
A specialized program was developed for her – utilizing a combination of manual therapy, strength, flexibility, balance, and agility training, as well as taping and bracing to restore her normal lower extremity mechanics and control. A few weeks later, able to discontinue any tape or bracing, she was back to her cardio kickboxing class without pain.
“I’m just glad I don’t have to take the medicine anymore.”
