TopicWhat Is Sciatica and How Does the Sciatic Nerve Cause It?
In one study of patients who had damaged knee cartilage removed, the muscles Joint Renew Review on the front of the leg had 35-40% inhibition 10-15 days after surgery. Meaning, a 35-40% reduction in normal function. This was after they had been discharged, were fully weight bearing, and had little or no pain.
Okay, so how does this relate to you? If you have had past injuries that result in chronic pain and/or tension, you really need to focus on your posture, as these muscles have a tendency to remain weak, not functioning at full capacity.
You also should work on controlling the movement of your joints, as this may shut off any reflex activity still occurring, long after your injury. Precise control of your joint movements also places less stress on your joints, as the muscles are all doing their specific jobs at the right time.
Obviously, you want to have sufficient strength in the muscles supporting the joints, but precise control of your movements helps to make sure that your muscles aren't inhibited by reflexes. It's easier to strengthen them when you have taken "the brakes" off.
