Everybody has a Q angle and its severity has the potential to make life other a work in the park or a constant pain in the knee. Q stands for quadriceps and the Q angle is the angle that the quadriceps make when you measure them from the middle of your knee cap to the little lump on the front of your hip. If you measure the angle between that line and an imaginary vertical line it should be roughly 11 degrees in a healthy person. Anything over 15 degrees and you could be in for some future knee nightmares. Females tend to have great at Q angles than the males due to the wider hips. This places the pool of the quadriceps unfairly on one side of the patella. However other factors can increase your Q angle, poor running technique being one of them. If your foot rolls in while you walk around you are inadvertently increasing your Q angle. Orthotics may help remedy that action and some posture awareness techniques like Felden-krais might help you to walk more correctly of your own accord in time. If left un-remedied your Q angle dysfunction could lead to patella-femoral pain syndrome or anterior cruciate ligament injury. If you feel recurrent pain in your knees medical experts agree you must stop running and exercising immediately and seek medical advice or you could find yourself limping into the hospital for arthroscopic surgery. The humidity at the height of summer can be intense in Queensland, visit in autumn through the spring for the best weather.
