I don’t know about you, but my knees always hurt when I’m going up a flight of stairs. I was a runner for many years, and although it kept me in shape, the wear and tear on my knees as well as aging, has weakened them.
Whether your knees currently hurt or not, the following video is for you; eventually everyone experiences knee pain, and the more we strengthen them the better. Dr. Jo, a physical therapist and Doctor of Physical Therapy presents 3 excellent solutions for strengthening your knees.

The key to KNEE STRENGTHENING is to REBUILD JOINT STRENGTH. This will not only REDUCE PAIN (if you already have it), but will act as a PREVENTATIVE for knee joint erosion as you age. Dr. Jo emphasizes the importance of maintaining correct form when doing the following 3 KNEE STRENGTHENING EXERCISES:

For this move you can actually use a step in your house, or a couple of hard covered books if your step is too high. As you will see, it is important to move slowly (using your muscles not momentum) to go up and down. It is also important to always keep your bent knee behind your toes.

Again, keeping your knee behind your toes, you alternate lunges with each leg, keeping your upper body straight and maintaining a controlled motion.

While keeping your legs shoulder width apart, you lower your rear as if you are going to sit, using a low chair or coffee table as the object to tap so you don’t go down too far. It is key that you not go fully down into a sitting position, and once again keep your knees behind those toes!

Dr. Jo further emphasizes the importance of mobilizing and stretching the knee, before strengthening it. She focusses on correct form so that the knee actually gets strengthened; following the moves you are about to view accurately is key to not moving in ways that could do further damage to the joint. Doing these 3 exercises daily will go a long way in strengthening your knees and getting pain relief!

Pain that involves the SCIATIC NERVE, which begins at the lower back and extends down the leg, is a condition known as SCIATICA. However, as you will see in the explanation provided by Dr. Guevara in the video you are about to watch below, Sciatica isn’t a diagnosis. It is actually a symptom caused by lower back pain, that is usually caused by three different conditions: a HERNIATED DISC, SPINAL STENOSIS or PIRIFORMIS SYNDROME.

According to “Spine-Health” there are also certain lifestyle factors that can contribute to sciatic pain, such as: PREGNANCY; a MUSCLE SPASM in your back or buttocks often caused by RUNNING; BEING OVERWEIGHT; WEARING HIGH HEELS; NOT EXERCISING REGULARLY, or SLEEPING on an UNSUPPORTIVE MATTRESS.

As Dr. Guevara goes through his discussion, he delineates when you will feel SYMPTOMS that may vary, consisting of PAIN: in the LOWER BACK, BUTTOCKS or LEG, HIP, BURNING or NUMBNESS DOWN the LEG etc. He explains, that symptoms which come from each of the underlying conditions causing the sciatica, will be felt during different motions. For instance, Sciatic pain from a HERNIATED DISC will often be felt when: bending, sneezing, coughing or lifting heavy objects. Pain caused by PIRIFORMIS SYNDROME is usually felt when sitting, running or walking. SPINAL STENOSIS is usually found in people over the age of 5o; they will feel pain when standing up straight, walking, and standing up after sitting.

He illustrates appropriate stretching exercises that are enormously helpful in alleviating symptoms for each of these underlying conditions. It is extremely important for the source of your sciatic pain to be medically evaluated, before you progress with any form of treatment.
