“I want to express my gratitude and appreciation of the webinar. Todd was amazing with his artistic dissection and I resonate with Mel’s words of how a dissection changes the way you treat as a soft tissue therapist. This was my first experience and I look forward to attending Anatomy Trains education in the future.” – Ashley Law, Structural Integrator / Bodyworker (Myotherapist)

Please join Master Dissector Todd Garcia, ATSI Teacher Thadd Dudrey, and Anatomy Trains CEO Mel Burns for a unique 3 hour dissection focused on the human knee. This event will be translated in real time into Japanese by Kinetikos Director and Rolfer Kaori Tani.  We will be offering comparative anatomy of a donor with a knee replacement, as well as a “healthy’ knee. 

From a biomechanical perspective, the knee is an “elbow designed by committee”. The knee is a hinge that also rotates between the two longest bones in the body. This may be excellent engineering, but the stresses of such leverage can cause either acute or long-term problems that require various degrees of ‘invasion’ to restore. In this layered fascial dissection, we examine the common points of stress in the knee, and review approaches to manual and surgical intervention to restore both function and support.

Key takeaways:

  • Assess postural patterns in the knee including “x” and “o” (varus and valgus) and rotational patterns and how these patterns are influenced above and below the knee
  • See inside the knee joint with our innovative fresh tissue dissections revealing all of the muscles attaching to the knee, as well as the menisci and cruciate ligaments – all as it works in movement of the knee joint, including in a knee with an artificial joint.
