Silver Stars Fitness- Why Do My Knees Hurt? Baby Boomer & Beyond Boot Camp Classes And Total Body Circuit Training Classes


Pain in the knees is a common complaint for men and women over the age of 50.

The knees can hurt for many reasons such as arthritis, meniscus and ligament tears and Patella tendonitis.

But sometimes it is nothing structural that is causing the pain. You see, the knee is caught in the middle between the ankle and hip and in some cases it’s not the knee itself that needs to be addressed, but rather we have to look at the health of the ankle and/or the hip/buttock.

Everything starts at the foot and ankle. If the ankle is weak and the calf is tight, it can cause your knee to track to the inside or buckle when walking, running, standing up from a chair and climbing steps. In addition to the ankle, the hip/buttock area also plays a role in overall knee stability and health.

The hip/buttock area is also responsible for proper knee tracking. So, if the hip is tight and buttock is weak, the knee will lack the proper stability and will either track to the inside or outside, as opposed to straight ahead when performing daily activities of life.

When the knee doesn’t track properly, you’re more prone to meniscus or ligament damage.

So, the take home message to ensure proper knee health is to not only look at the knee, but to make sure your ankles and hip/buttock are strong and flexible.

Silver Stars now offers small group training that helps accomplish a fat loss or general fitness goal. All classes are either 3o or 45 minutes and include cardiovascular drills, balance work, core and overall strength and flexibility.

Classes are high energy and because of the smaller class, you’ll receive personal attention that simulates personal training, but at half the cost.
