Increasing Knee Stability

October 5, 2010

As one of the most complex joints in the body, filled with a litany of connective tissue, the knee is extremely susceptible to damage. Whether you’re recovering from a knee injury or suffering arthritis of the knee, stabilizing the joint is essential to ensuring long-term health. One of the best ways to protect yourself against damage is by increasing strength in the joint.

This can be accomplished through a variety of exercises, and since the knee is so multifaceted, it’s necessary to work it from numerous angles. In addition to strengthening the muscles and connective tissues surrounding the joint, it’s also a good idea to wear knee braces, especially during physical activity. Braces work to compress the tissue around the knee, adding stability and protection.
