Steadman-Hawkins Clinics advise cross-training to maintain flexibility and a good range of motion
Dr. Richard Steadman of Colorado’s renowned Steadman-Hawkins Clinics advises cross-training to maintain flexibility and a good range of motion as well as strength in order to stabilize the knee joint.
Biking, working out on an elliptical machine, walking uphill on a treadmill and of course, the good old “brisk 30-minute walk” are recommended proactive preventative measures.
Add walking poles to that brisk 30-minute walk and you reap a cardio and calorie-burn bonus. Knee surgery — whether repair or replacement — can be the solution of last resort. Visit External Link
