According to Dr. Michael Bernstein, Knee injuries from running aren't inevitable or necessarily debilitating. Running does put stress on the knees and knee injuries are common in runners, but they are also correctable. Carmel, NY (PRWEB) June 21, 2012 Are runners doomed to suffering with sore knees? It is true that runners sustain an average of 4 injuries for every 1,000 hours of running. That means that runners who pound the pavement for 5-10 hours per week might suffer 2 injuries over the...

A new research review suggests that weakness in the muscles that support the hips may be a common contributor to many overuse injuries in runners, Reuters reported. Overuse injuries like chronic knee pain, shin splints, Achilles tendonitis and pain in the sole of the foot are common ailments for many runners. However, a review of previous research findings published since 1980 found that weakness in the hip muscles may translate into a higher risk of such lower-leg injuries over time. Lead...

U.S. researchers say exercise to strengthen muscles after knee replacement surgery is critical to recovering function. The randomized controlled trial study, published in Arthritis Care & Research, determined the 200 patients receiving strength training showed much greater improvement in strength and function over the next 12 months -- as measured by tests such as stair climbing and 6-minute walks -- than 41 patients who received conventional rehabilitation and home physical therapy. It...

Studies on the influence of quadriceps strength on knee osteoarthritis (OA), one of the leading causes of disability among the elderly, have shown conflicting results. In some studies, decreased quadriceps strength is associated with greater knee pain and impaired function, while other studies show mixed results on the effect of quadriceps strength on the structural progression of knee OA.Most studies to date have used X-rays to indirectly measure cartilage loss in knee OA and have focused on...

By Koter, S; Diks, M J F; Anderson, P G; Wymenga, A B An abnormal lateral position of the tibial tuberosity causes distal malalignment of the extensor mechanism of the knee and can lead to lateral tracking of the patella causing anterior knee pain or objective patellar instability, characterised by recurrent dislocation. Computer tomography is used for a precise pre- operative assessment of the tibial tubercletrochlear groove distance. A distance of more than 15 mm is considered to be...

By Anthony J. Brown, MD NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - For patients undergoing total knee replacement, the strength of their quadriceps muscles before surgery is a good predictor of how well they'll be functioning a year later, study results indicate. Quadriceps are the large muscles on the front of the thigh. The findings suggest that the quadriceps strength should be optimized with physical therapy or other measures before knee replacement is performed, Dr. Lynn Snyder-Mackler, from...
