Silver Stars Fitness- Over 50? How To Stop Knee Pain! Baby Boomer & Beyond Boot Camp, Smooth Yoga, & Silver Balance & Fall Prevention Promotion

By Jason Greenspan

The knees are a common complaint for men and women over the age of 50.

The knees can hurt for many reasons such as bursitis, 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.

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.

In addition, your knee pain could just be a lack of strength of the surrounding muscles such as your quads, hamstrings and inner/outer thigh muscles, as well as tight muscles around the knee. Or it could be poor form when doing popular gym exercises such as squatting, lunging or stepping.

At Silver Stars Fitness, we focus on building stability around the knee BEFORE we ask our clients to squat or lunge. This helps build a foundation and prepares you for better form when doing weight – bearing lower body exercises and makes you less prone to injury and pain.

So, the take home message to ensure proper knee health is to not only look at the knee, but to make sure the surrounding muscles such as your ankles and hip/buttock are strong and flexible and to check your form when doing your exercises.
