Do you have knee pain? Many people do (myself included!). And medical industry statistics indicate more and more people are suffering from it every day.
Unfortunately, most of us choose to simply endure knee pain. We attribute it to aging. Then we pop pills for it so we can ignore it. Many of us end up having surgery; the number of knee replacements is increasing. Interestingly enough, knee pain can serve as an all-too-convenient excuse to keep us from staying physically active as we age. I’m definitely guilty of that!
All this and more contributes to a question I’m constantly asking myself, “What else can I do for my health?”
What Else Can I Do For My Health?
One of my favorite and most frequently asked questions is, “What else can I do for my health?” ~Lane Therrell
Asking this question recently helped me find a very effective series of exercises for knee strength and pain relief. These exercises are already making a huge difference for me with my own “trick knee.” And now I’m on a mission to share these exercises with everyone I know who has knee pain!
Scroll to the bottom of the post for the link if you already know you’d like to try them for yourself. Keep reading if you’d like to know a few more details first.
The Power of Isometric Exercises
These are isometric exercises, so when you’re doing them, it may look like you’re not really doing much at all. But don’t be fooled! Isometric exercises are powerful and incredibly beneficial. They’re low impact, they build strength, and they don’t require special equipment.
In case the word “isometric” is new to you, here’s some background: There are 3 types of skeletal muscle contractions: concentric, eccentric, and isometric. A concentric contraction is when the muscle shortens up to move a joint; an eccentric contraction is when the muscle stretches out to move a joint; and an isometric contraction happens when the muscle contracts while the joint it supports doesn’t move at all.
When you learn to do isometric exercises properly in the right sequence, and you consistently integrate them into your daily routine, you’ll likely notice a reduction in knee pain. While these exercises could potentially help any type of knee pain, they may be especially helpful if you’ve had an old injury (like an ACL repair or a meniscus tear) that flares up from time to time. As the muscles that support your knee get stronger, they can take some of the load off the joint itself. And voila! Less pain. Of course, none of this is a substitute for medical attention. I trust you to know when to seek that.
Introducing Feel Good Knees
The isometric exercises in the Feel Good Knees program are presented in video form along with written explanations and a log sheet so you can keep a track of your results. You can choose to purchase the information in digital-only format or you can have a hard copy mailed to you as well.
This is an affiliate link, so if you decide to purchase Feel Good Knees, I’ll receive a small commission. I thank you in advance for contributing to my efforts to make the world a healthier, happier place. But most importantly, I think you’ll get more than your money’s worth if you decide to go for it.
In my humble opinion, the super-affordable $15.00 price tag on this set of exercises makes this one of the most cost-effective investments you’ll ever make for your long-term health. This is especially true if you’ve made a commitment to be more active, but there’s always this nagging thought in the back of your mind that your knee pain could flare up at any time and knock you off your exercise routine.
Please drop me a line if you decide to try Feel Good Knees, and let me know how the isometric exercises are working for you.
