Sports activity is often too intense and focused on specific
movements like long distance running. Joints suffer from too much sports or stress, especially in combination with axial deviations, e.g. O or X legs. Pre injuries from the knee structues are regular seen. Other biomechanical inputs from the body and environment can trigger the development of osteoarthritis. A painful, progressive joint wear is called osteoarthritis.
Supportive help comes from hyaluronic acid injections, PRP therapy and cellular restoring therapy to improve joint function. Functional unloading braces and insoles allow more load capacity.
The appropriate balance and movement is the best treatment of osteoarthritis. Joints with osteoarthritis may maintain acceptable function when trained for better flexibility, coordination, balance, proprioception and strength. Functional training, strength training, sensorimotor training with the Huber 360 help to stop the progression of osteoarthritis. With the result of better dynamic running and a delayed progression of osteoarthrits.
High Energy Induction Therapy or pulsed electro magnet field therapy (PEMF) are very useful to treat pain and effects of osteoarthritis.
Well designed insoles helps to improve the foot function and in this context less stress forces on the knee.
