Hello friends šŸ˜€

Inspite of the fact that the knee is the body’s biggest, heaviest and best protected joint, it is injured more often then any other.

Many injuries can be prevented by taking the precautions given below :-

  • If you are overweight, slim down to reduce stress on the joint, especially if you engage in such activities as jogging or tennis.

  • To strengthen your knee muscles, do a set of knee curls daily. Lie on your stomach on an exercise bench or a bed so that your lower leg extends over the edge. Turn one foot inwards to an angle about 45 degrees, slowly bend your knee to a 90 degree angle, and lift your upper leg as high as you can. Hold this position for 10 seconds, then lower your leg slowly and let it straighten. Repeat 10 times with each leg.

  • Never ignore any knee injury, however slight it may seem. See a doctor as soon as possible after you have damage your knee. Follow the RICE rule until you consult a doctor. RICE – rest, ice, compress and elevation.
