Knee wear is irreversible, doing these seven points can extend knee life
The knee joint can be said to be a spring or cushion in the human body. When a person squats, walks, runs, or jumps, the knee joint bears the pressure and impact of its own body weight, and our knee joint has a certain life span. The use of overload will accelerate the wear of the knee joint. In order to better protect it, the joint should be "saved" after entering middle age.
1. Strong leg muscles
Strong leg muscles are the best protection for the knee joint. The quadriceps is the most important muscle group of human thighs. It is not only responsible for the main strength of our walking, up and down stairs, and squatting, but also the stability of our knee joints. Multiple studies have found that strength training of the quadriceps can improve exercise function, slow the progress of osteoarthritis, and have a mild analgesic effect.
2. Weight control
The greater the weight of the body, the greater the force on the knee joint and the faster the wear rate. General body mass index (BMI) more than 24 will need to lose weight. Calculation method of body mass index (BMI): BMI = body weight (kg) ÷ square of height (㎡)
3. Not sitting for long
Sitting for a long time makes the knee joint under high pressure for a long time, accelerates the wear of cartilage, deteriorates the blood circulation of the legs, and weakens the strength of the thigh muscles. There are many factors that cause knee arthritis, but for us modern people, sitting and flexing the knee for a long time is a starting factor that triggers a vicious circle.
4. Diligent exercise
It is recommended to exercise with less stress on the knee joints such as walking, low-resistance bicycles, and swimming. Exercise must be gradual and persistent. If there is pain and discomfort during exercise, reduce or stop exercise, find the reason, and do not blindly insist.
5. Less squat
Avoid squatting for housework. You can choose to sit on a chair when choosing food. You can squat as little as possible; reduce the number of climbing or climbing stairs. If necessary, use handrails and canes to reduce the stress on the knee joint.
6. Note to keep warm
Due to the lack of protection of the rich muscles and fat tissues in the knee joint, local heat is easily lost, and the temperature is often lower than other parts. If the knee joint encounters dampness and cold, it will affect local blood circulation, especially for the already damaged knee. Cold stimulation will aggravate the symptoms of arthritis. Knee arthritis patients should pay attention to keep the knee warm, especially when the summer is high. Avoid The cold air of the air conditioner is blowing straight.
7. Do not avoid medical treatment
If you feel knee pain, it is recommended to go to a regular hospital for diagnosis and treatment, and take appropriate protective treatment measures to avoid further injury. If you start to have joint pain when going down stairs, you must pay attention. It is recommended to consult a professional doctor in time. The doctor can take different treatments for different degrees of illness.
