2/25/13-Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Thursday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 26. February 2013 09:00

There seems to a connection between knee pain during running and weak muscles in your hips.  Think about the connection of muscles and joints if your hip action is weak or misaligned, causing stresses in ankles and knees.

Author, Reed Ferber Ph.D., of University of Calgary, suggests looping a band around the leg of a heavy couch or pole and putting the other loop around your right foot, and placing your left foot behind the right.  Then, bring your right foot out away from your body as far as you can with out leaning.  Slowly, return to start.  Do several reps building up how many you can do, overtime.

I also recommend Pilates.  It safely works hip joints building up flexibility and strength through a variety of exercises.
