How can you stabilize the knee?

The knee can be stabilized by specifically strengthening the surrounding muscles. The most important muscles for knee joint stability are the quadriceps muscles at the front of the thigh and the posterior thigh muscles.

Targeted strengthening of these muscles can help stabilize the knee joint and prevent injury and pain. There are various exercises suitable for strengthening the knee muscles, such as squats, lunges and various exercises using TOGU equipment.

In addition, balance training can also play an important role in stabilizing the knee joint, as it helps to improve proprioceptive abilities. Proprioception is the body's ability to perceive and control the position and movement of joints in space.

How can knee training equipment support knee training?

Knee training devices such as balance cushions can support knee training in several ways. By using a balance cushion, the unstable base, will promote balance training and improve proprioceptive skills. This can help improve stability and mobility of the knee joint and prevent injury or pain.

Balance training is also good training for strength and sensorimotor skills. In simple terms, sensorimotor function is the interaction between sensory (e.g., nerve pathways) and motor (e.g., muscles, tendons, ligaments) outputs of the body. On the air-filled and therefore unstable TOGU pads, you train not only your ability to balance, but also your nervous system and the deeper muscles that provide mobility and stability of your joints.

In addition, other exercise equipment such as leg extension machines, leg curl machines, resistance bands and foam rollers can also be used for knee training to specifically help strengthen the knee and leg muscles and improve knee joint mobility and stability.

However, it is important to use the equipment correctly and under the guidance of an experienced trainer or physical therapist to avoid injury.

Strengthen knee muscles with Dr. Sommer's 15-minute knee program

The 15-minute knee program developed by the team physician of the German national snowboard team, Dr. Sommer, which you can access online for free here and easily incorporate into your daily routine, includes such exercises. It can also be performed by the untrained. By using the matching TOGU knee equipment set the training stimuli are intensified even more. Other items that you can find in this category are also suitable for use in this area.

It doesn't matter if you use the program for prevention or if you become active after the occurrence of a health problem: In case of complaints, please always ask your doctor or physiotherapist for advice. Healthy Exercise offers you a solution that you can implement on your own responsibility in everyday life as a supplement to therapeutic treatment.
