Millions of women around the world suffer from Arthritis knee pain, which prevent them sometimes from doing normal daily activities like climbing the stairs or even walking. But a new research conducted by the University of Iowa finds that women who have strong thigh muscles are 50% less likely to develop knee pain compared to women who have weak muscles.
So, what you need to do is to adapt to a regular exercise to strengthen your quadriceps muscles because they help protect against cartilage loss behind the kneecap and also provide crucial support for the joint.
Building some muscles around and above the knee would be very beneficial for women ( the study didn’t find the same results in men) especially if they follow a good exercise habit that target specifically the muscles in the leg.
Here are some video resource along with some links to websites where professionals explain to you how to go about strengthening quadriceps.
