How to Protect Your Knees
There are so many methods to protect your knees, here attached 6 ways to maintain healthy knees.
Pick knee-friendly sports. Rowing, cross-country skiing, and cycling are knee-friendly activities because they are low impact and don't encourage twisting.
Put ice on it. Don't ignore a tweak or strain, no matter what sport you take up. This is a simple way to reduce inflammation and pain.
Avert rotation of hips and knees. Jumping and slowing down from a run—common to many exercises—seem to be particularly bad for the knee's ACL (anterior cruciate ligament). Land with joints aligned so that hips are over knees, knees are over ankles, and ankles are over toes—but with some give to the joints. Young female athletes who play sports like soccer and basketball tend to injure their ACL five to eight times as often as young male athletes.
Be careful when up and down stairs. Running in hilly terrain can put particular strain on tendons in the knees. Pay attention to clues that your knees need a rest—or at least a flatter course.
Cross-train. Overuse is the slow and steady way to knee injuries. Opt for a range of varied activities by alternating workouts. If you run, for example, alternate with cycling to use different muscle groups.
Knee Brace.Anyone who loves running, walking, hiking, workouts and the same intensity level activities knew that a Knee brace is an essential keeping the knees from potential injury during these activities.
