Health Tip: Exercise for Stronger Knees
Here are potential benefits
(HealthDay News) -- If your knees are sore, it may seem better to skip exercise than to make a trip to the gym.
But the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says exercise may actually help strengthen aching knees, reducing stress on the joints and helping to alleviate pain.
The academy says stronger muscles that support the knee joints will provide:
- Greater muscle strength, leading to better ability of the knees to absorb shock.
- Greater muscle flexibility, reducing knee soreness.
- Less strain on the knee, helping to prevent additional injury.
