Prevention is key.
Wise words from John who talked about the importance of doing regular strength and flexibility exercises for injury rehabilitation and prevention during our online TT2 programme last night . John emphasised that no muscle group should be inactive. Weak quad, hamstring or calf muscles are responsible for most knee pain . Therefore, if we strengthen these muscles we are more likely to prevent knee injuries from happening. If we don’t use our muscles, we will loose it. Weak muscles slows metabolism, puts more pressure on your joints, limits mobility and is associated with poor balance, all of which increase the risk of falls and injuries. Prevention is key. Don’t be afraid to start easy and progress over time – even 10 minutes per day can make a big difference!
