Health tip: Do you need a knee replacement? Is it right for you?
Total knee replacement (TKA) surgeries, in the United States, have increased more than 100% over the past twenty years. This surgery has been a Godsend to many older Americans and has allowed them to remain more active and independent than in the past before these surgeries were available.
Research, and experience, has positively proven that a knee replacement greatly enhances the ability to move around independently without pain. Pain, being the operative word.

Strength tip: Starting out with an aerobic exercise plan
The research over the past several years continues to support the benefits of aerobic exercise. Not only is it good for your cardiovascular system but it helps ease fatigue symptoms in those with chronic fatigue syndrome, in the elderly, and the long-term sedentary person. However, this does not mean that people in these categories should just immediately go out and try to run a marathon. Before you even start, check with your doctor and review your history of activity, any type of joint problems, cardiovascular conditions, or other conditions that may cause you problems if you exercise.

Strength tip: Stretching Strength and flexibility training
Stretching and strength training go hand in hand. Start your workout with a general full body warm up then move to a dynamic upper, mid or lower torso stretch and end up with your movement specific stretch.
If you are unsure of how to make the most of your stretching exercises here is a handy twenty nine page booklet to look at and learn from. Stretching tips was written by my Australian stretching guide cohort, Brad Walker.
