Just staring & question about knee pain

Moms View Message Board: Let's Get Fit! (Weight Loss Support Group): Just staring & question about knee pain
By Mommyof5 on Tuesday, January 2, 2007 - 11:36 am:

I am starting an exercise and healthy eating plan. My family bought me the Biggest Loser newest workout dvd and I put it in this morning and made it through the warm up and the 10 minute high intensity cardio. BUT my right knee seems kind of weak. During some of the moves it would kind of give out on me and I had a little bit of pain. Is there anything I can do to help this?

If you havn't exercised before/or in a long time, and you are having knee pain while doing the tape, I would stop doing it for now. What about walking? Walking is the easiest on your body when you are starting out. What about walking for awhile to get your legs stronger, and then trying the tape again?

Good luck with your exerise/eating program! We usually post our daily progress, so feel free to jump in and post daily, if you want.

Tammy, I second Debbie. Just walk for now and when you do aerobics, make sure they are low impact. The more you jump and move around the harder it can be on your knees. When I started a run/walk program I had to ice my knees every day whether they were bugging me or not and know my knees are probably they best they have been in years. No longer hurt or bug me. I also added strength training for my inside knee area. My knee caps go to the outside of my leg when I bend them really bad. I have had to strengthen that inner muscle.

You can do it!!!

I agree - if it hurts your knee, don't do it. Knees and ankles are very tricky joints, and throwing out a knee or wearing at the cartilage by the wrong kinds of moves will cost you badly in the long run. I third Debbie - try walking, and stick to low impact exercises. And think about wearing a knee support even when doing those exercises. I have bad knees, and frequently wind up wearing those elastic knee supports when they are bothering me, and the supports really help things to heal up faster and hurt less when I have to move around.
