What else don't you know about knee pain? Every year, dozens of scientific studies are conducted on this topic, and our physiotherapists are constantly updating their knowledge. All this to provide patients with care at the highest level. Here are some of the latest insights that you can immediately implement in your daily life.
1.Higher intensity doesn't always mean better results: Recent studies involving hundreds of patients have shown that high-intensity training isn't necessarily more effective than lower-intensity exercises when it comes to managing knee pain. In fact, intense training can lead to excessive muscle and joint discomfort, potentially worsening knee pain. It's important to tailor your exercises to your own abilities and needs.
2. Keep moving, even when your knee hurts: Researchers emphasize the importance of staying active, even when dealing with knee pain. There's a vicious circle where knee pain leads to a more sedentary lifestyle, which can, in turn, exacerbate discomfort. Maintaining your fitness levels is essential for overall well-being.
Certainly, many scientific studies are conducted, providing valuable insights for healthcare professionals. However, these studies often focus on complex issues that may not directly relate to everyday life or patient care. Patient-driven recommendations, on the other hand, play a crucial role in helping individuals recover and regain proper knee function.
