Anatomy of the knee

The knee joint ensures the junction between the femur bone and the tibia bone and the patella bone. Two joints exist at the knee: the patellofemoral joint between the femur and the patella, and the tibial-femoral joint between the femur and the tibia which itself is divided enfemoro-tibial internal and femoro-tibial external.

Walking, a significant remedy in knee pain

affects about half of people over the age of fifty and can be very painful for many.

American researchers argue that walking is an important part of alleviating pain or even participating in healing.

quote planesante:

“I think we should explain all the benefits of walking to our knee osteoarthritis patients,” he says. We should also get them to measure their physical activity with a pedometer. This is finally a gesture similar to weighing yourself with a scale. Patients embarking on a walking program should expect a minimum of 3000 steps per day, and should attempt to reach the target of 6,000 steps daily. In the end, 3000 steps every day is not so difficult.
