HOW TO IMPROVE KNEE STABILITY.
Knee pain is so common that a Gallup-Healthways study found that 26% of the U.S. adult population suffers from it. In fact, it comes second (only to the lower back) for the most common cause of chronic pain. ⠀
This isn’t surprising, since the knee is a major weight-bearing joint that must withstand large amounts of force. With certain activities, like running and jumping, this could mean double ( or even quadruple) an individual’s body weight. ⠀
By improving knee motion, balance, and strength, it can help prevent future injuries and optimize knee function and performance. Simply put, a balance of strength and flexibility is key to stable, healthy knee joints. ⠀
So here's a good way to help improve knee stability and prepare it for everyday activities. All that's needed is a therapy ball and a wall. A soccer ball or volleyball can also be used. Over time, this exercise will strengthen the hip, knee, and ankle, as well as improving control of the leg.⠀
