Im posting a great little video from the Mobility Master himself, Kelly Starrett.  I hear people talking about knee pain all the time around me.  From what I have seen, it has come from some incorrect movements.  People seem to understand that the knee should track in the direction of the foot and we never want our knee to extend out past our toes when we are doing the squat or lifting.  But what about when we go up and down stairs?  We need to think the exact same positioning:  knee drives wide to stabilize the hip and reduce the torque on the knee.  Same thing when we are going down stairs or even running down hill.  Have your foot placement be just a touch wider and drive your knee out slightly which will bring in more muscle recruitment and protect your knee as you move.  Watch the vid!
