Struggling with Clunk, Click, Knee Stiffness or Pain?

first_imgFacebook3Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Penrose Physical TherapyKnees can often start to make some loud clicking and clunking noises. This may be the start of some early changes in the knee joint where the cartilage may start softening. If you are 40+, you may already be aware of these knees that don’t let you sneak up on anyone anymore. There are some simple tips you can do to help you knees. Sometimes it is that the tissues around the knees are tight and create extra stress and strain at the knee. Regular stretching of the muscles that attach around the knee will help reduce the stress at your knee and even decrease the clunking and clicking. Secondly, your knees may actually need more help from your greatest shock absorption: your muscles around your knees! Strengthening your muscles in ways that do not stress the knee joint can be tricky, especially if it hurts to exercise and move. Take this simple knee quiz:1.  Does it hurt to get up from a chair?2.  Does it hurt to go up or down stairs?3.  Does it hurt to fully bend or straighten your knee?4.  Do you find yourself placing more weight on the other leg? If you answered yes to any of those questions please contact us for a free report which outlines some simple tips on helping your knees.Penrose Physical Therapy sees people every week with challenges regarding knee arthritis and the difficulty in exercising without stressing the knee joint.

We have different options with him. He’ll determine where we run next. He was working great. We’re looking for bigger and better things.” NOTES: The winning owners/breeders are Mike Pegram, Karl Watson and Paul Weitman. MIKE PEGRAM, PART OWNER/BREEDER, GIMME DA LUTE, WINNER: “Winning inCalifornia is always great, especially having a Cal-bred here. We bred Casino Gold in Kentucky and brought her to California specifically to be foaled here so we could run this colt as a Cal-bred. It’s always good when plans work like you hope, and the way he won today, I can’t wait for him to run again. But you never want to get ahead of yourself in this sport.” -30- JOCKEY QUOTESMARTIN GARCIA, GIMME DA LUTE, WINNER: “It was easy today. He’s been learning. The last two times he ran he was a baby. He’s still a baby but he’s more mature now and I was just cruising with him. When I asked him to go he just took off.”TRAINER QUOTESlast_img read more
