Practise yoga to be careful of your knee
Ms. Wang is a loyal yoga lover. She goes to the gym to practice yoga every other day.
Recently, I always feel hidden pain. After going to the hospital for examination, I found that it was a sports injury of the collateral ligament of the knee joint.
Originally, I wanted to strengthen my body, but unexpectedly caused damage to my body, and my fitness changed to “injury”.
Like the “Lotus Sitting”, almost everyone who has taken a yoga class has been exposed to this pose.
But do you know?
Even this very common yoga pose is not for everyone.
If you practice this position often and cause frequent discomfort to overcome, then you must be careful, it may cause soft tissue movement damage to your knee joint.
The knee joint connects the thigh and calf.
It is not like other joints, it is protected by rich muscles and slight tissues, but a “skinny” tissue with poor blood circulation. The knee joint is composed of three bones, the femur, bone and sacrum, and is tightly surrounded by ligaments.
There is a smooth protective structure between the femur and the fractured bone, the meniscus, which allows the two bones to slide smoothly.
There are four main ligaments inside the knee joint: the anterior cruciate ligament, the posterior cruciate ligament, the collateral ligament, and the lateral collateral ligament.
The main function of the knee joint is responsible for the flexion and extension of the human leg. The physiological angle that allows left and right twisting is very limited, usually not more than about 5 degrees.
In the lotus position, it is easy to exceed this range of distortion. If your physical condition is poor, osteophyte muscles and ligaments are also stiff, and excessive continuous twisting of the knee joint, often without complete recovery,Starting the second exercise, it is very easy to cause knee joint soft tissue damage.
Many people mistakenly believe that every movement that a coach can do is the standard movement of yoga, and therefore work hard for the goal.
I do n’t know, everyone ‘s physical condition is different. In the process of fitness, there is no guidance from professional coaches, and some professional coaches sometimes ask their professors to complete some small movements on their own conditions. During this short transition,Once the deviation of the grasp is caused, it is easy to cause sports injuries, and the first is the joints that penetrate through the range of motion and have less stability, such as knee joints, shoulder joints, and so on.
Everything has two sides, and any kind of exercise method will have both positive and negative effects.
All in all, in the course of yoga practice, we must listen to the body’s response. If continuous pain persists, especially in the joint area, we should consult a professional coach or go to the hospital for examination in time, and follow the guidance of the doctor.Procrastination will solve the problem blindly, so as not to cause a small injury to become a serious illness, causing irreparable injury.
