The knees are one of the largest joints in the body. They take on a lot of force over time from walking and other daily activities. The knees can be a common site for degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis to occur, leading to pain and limitations in mobility and activity.
It’s important to continue to exercise the muscles around the knees, including the quadriceps, hamstrings and gastrocnemius muscles, in order to maintain good knee mobility and maintain an active life. Staying active and mobile can have a huge impact on overall health.
