Maintaining the health of our joints can be a bit of a catch-22. A sedentary lifestyle leads to gradual weakening of the muscles and thus the joints as well. A very active lifestyle may lead to wear and tear type injuries. Ideally, we hope to fall somewhere in the middle; keeping our bodies strong and stable, while avoiding over-use.
Knees are one of the most commonly injured joints, be it from instability, wear and tear, random mishaps or athletic endeavors. The great news is there are some basic exercises you can add into your life – today – to help improve the health of this very important joint.
Whether you are looking for preventative tips, rebuilding after an injury or surgery, or wanting to eliminate some current aches/pains before an injury occurs, check out the video below for some user-friendly tips to keep your knees happy.
Please leave your feedback and questions as you give these exercises a try. You’ll want to master these before progressing to part 2, which I’ll share in an upcoming blog. If you want some insider tips before then, subscribe to the PaleoExperience YouTube channel, where part 2 is already posted. 😉
