In this episode I interview Matt Stieler, who is a lifelong hiker, a physiotherapist and a knee specialist. We dive deep into knee pain while hiking and he shares some absolutely amazing information from his professional perspective.

You will learn:

  • What the dreaded hiker's knee actually is
  • A few hiking techniques to reduce pain while on the trail
  • What overuse injuries and how you can avoid them on the trail
  • Why you DON'T want to be using a 'band-aid for an arterial spurt'
  • If you can ever get back to full strength after a knee reconstruction
  • What the IT Band is and how it affects the knee
  • And much, much more...
