Final Word

The knee is an immense vital joint in the body, and sporting activities play an impactful role in its health. If someone has knee pain while engaging in a sport, it can be hard to determine the cause. There are many potential contributing factors to knee pain, including type and intensity of the sport, exercise level, and exercise program. However, some common elements can lead to knee pain. To avoid or perhaps treat knee pain, it is uplifting for athletes to be knowledgeable about the knee and how it functions. In this way, they can make the best choices for themselves and their knees.

If you have a neat specialization or business information that would be of benefit for fitness professionals to know about, please do contact me, and I would love to share it with the EFI world.

If you know of a fitness professional or someone with knee pain that may benefit from this interview, please forward it to them. Take care.
