#FightingItOut Anyone with Osteoarthritis? Knees? I was advised BOTH knee joint replacement at 56 yrs seven months age. I limped everywhere. I decided to fight it out. Today, I walk 9-10 kms without limping. I cycle about 140-150kms a week. No medicines. Interested to know how?

1. I simply wanted a doctor to tell me on my FIRST reporting for knee pain in 2014, at 54 yrs age, that 👉🏻if👈🏻 I strengthened muscles of legs ie thighs and calf & shin, they would reduce pressure on knee joint. NONE DID.

2. I start my journey of pain & agony and how I recovered more than 80% & pushed knee joint replacement by at least a decade. A human body can stand only ONE knee joint replacement in life and the life of this replaced joint is 15 yrs.

5 Life-Enhancing Benefits of Strength Training for Adults Over 55 🏋🏽‍♀️

Strength training and regular aerobic activity help prevent many chronic and degenerative diseases related to #aging.

Here are 5 #health benefits that strength training can provide to older adults...

1. Stronger Muscles

Stronger muscles protect the joints of the body. Muscle weakness can cause the hips, spine, and shoulder to be less stable and more prone to injury.

A stronger body can withstand the #stress of daily activities.

2. Chronic Pain Relief

Many #chronicpain issues are a result of muscle weakness and muscle imbalances.

Strength exercises can correct these imbalances to restore the function and integrity of the joints.
