Cracking Joints

Have you ever thought about what it means to have joints that creak or crack.  Often this is a sign of an unstable joint, moving in a manner that will eventually lead to accelerated wear and tear.  The knees are a good example.  If you can imagine a train running off its rails, you can imagine what’s happening to your knee cap as it glides and creaks as you bend your knee.  If you hear your knees grinding away when you squat or climb stairs, don’t ignore them.  It may not necessarily be painful every time, but it is an early warning sign of things to come.

With a proper strength and flexibility routine, it’s possible to stabilise the knee so as to slow down or stop the progression of cartilage and bone degeneration.  This applies to all joints.  Listen to your body, and if something doesn’t feel right, have it looked at soon, before it’s too late.
