Importance Of Knee Brace In Mountain Activity
Apr 02, 2018

Knee brace has two important properties

1. Insulation: The knee is very easy to catch cold, many knee diseases are related to the cold of the knee, especially in the mountains, the mountain wind is very cold and very hard, often the leg muscles will feel very hot due to continuous activities, The knees are not hot because they have no muscle activity. When we feel that the legs are comfortable for cooling, the knees are getting cold. At this time, if you wear a knee pad, the thermal insulation of the knee pads can be expressed.

2. Braking: The knee joint is the center where the upper and lower leg bones meet. There are meniscus at both ends and the sacrum is behind. The sacrum is stretched by two muscles and suspended before the junction of the leg bones. It slides very casually in ordinary life. Due to the fact that it is not affected by external forces and there is no violent activity, the sacrum can perform ordinary small-scale activities in the knee area. Because of the excessive pressure exerted on the knees by the mountain climbing activities and the violent activities in the mountain climbing, the patella is easily removed from the original site, causing the disease in the knee joint. With knee pads, the patella can move in an absolutely fluctuating position to ensure that it is not damaged. The above is a mild measure to protect the knee when there is no knee injury. After a knee injury, applying a heavy brake can reduce knee flexion, keep the knee from a thigh to the calf, and reduce the knee's Curved, so that the knee no longer aggravated condition.

The following methods of knee protection vary from person to person:

1. Adolescents warm up before exercise: Adolescents often suffer from knee joint injury during exercise. One of the important reasons is to ignore the pre-exercise warm-up. Experts pointed out that knee joints in sports need coordinated protection of muscles and ligaments. If the warm-up is not enough, the muscle reaction will not be in place, and the knee joints will not be protected in time, thus easily causing damage to the joint ligaments, menisci, and cartilage. Another common reason is the lack of strength in the lower extremity but violent exercise, which causes the knee joint to be overloaded, resulting in injury to the knee joint. Therefore, young people must do their best when performing physical exercises. Good condition without paying attention to protection.

2. Middle-aged people, to avoid high-intensity exercise: middle-aged people are usually busy with work, pressure, and prone to sub-health status, so taking time out for physical exercise to maintain physical health is particularly important. Experts suggest that for the majority of middle-aged people who use cars instead of cars and sedentary movements, the exercise should be gradual and gradual, so as to avoid suddenly entering high-intensity exercise from the state of not exercising all the time. Therefore, in order to protect the knee joint, the middle-aged person must pay attention to the small-load exercise without sweating or slight sweating, and gradually increase the amount of exercise to achieve the effect of physical fitness.

3. Older people, less climbing mountains and stairs: Many elderly people think that climbing stairs and climbing are fitness and money-saving exercise methods, but they do not know that this method is not conducive to protecting the knee joints. Experts point out that the weight of the knee is basically its own weight when it goes uphill. When it goes downhill, besides its own weight, the knee must also bear the power of undershoot. This kind of impact will increase the damage to the knee joint. Therefore, it is best for the elderly to perform exercises that do not damage the knee, such as swimming, cycling, and walking. When exercising, it can be equipped with suitable knee pads. On the one hand, it can prevent the knee from being damaged due to improper force, and on the other hand it can also play a role in keeping warm.

4. Injuries to the knee, do not do rotary knee movement: Experts advise that in warm-up activities, hands on the knees, turn a few turns to the right turn a few laps, is one of the commonly used warm-up methods. For people who have no knee injuries, there is no problem with this movement. However, in patients with knee joint injuries, especially meniscus injuries and osteoarthritis, such movements may further damage the knee joints. Severe cases may cause meniscus tears and compression, requiring surgical treatment.

For patients with knee injuries, the ideal way to warm-up is to place the knee in a position that is not weight-bearing, such as sitting in a seated position, knee flexion, and not bearing weight. At this point, the left and right rotation and movement of the knee joint reduce the joint pressure, and the friction between the joint surfaces is also greatly reduced, which is beneficial to protect the injured articular cartilage and the menisci.
