Knee health
Every extra kilogram of weight you gain adds a kilogram of extra pressure to your knees.

RICE can be good for a sore knee.

Running up and down stairs is a great workout for your knees.

To get the most out of squats and lunges, aim to bend your knees at about a 60-degree angle.

One of the most common knee injuries is to the ACL.

Women have a higher risk for ACL tears compared to men.

With osteoarthritis of the knee, pain is typically worse at night.

A warm-up period of 5-10 minutes before exercise, and a cool-down period of similar length, is generally considered sufficient as an important means to help prevent joint injuries.
