153: Knee Health and Weight Loss

This episode begins to scratch the surface of how crucial a sound understanding of exercise science is.

Here’s a secret:general/family doctors don’t specialize in movement, pain science, exercise, muscles, etc. They just don’t.

Many people come to me and say “wouldn’t my knees feel better if I lost weight?” or “My doctor said my knees wouldn’t hurt so much if I lost weight, so I’m going to start swimming.”

What’s the problem with this? SO MUCH.
So so so much is wrong with this.

Tune into this episode to find out why:
-losing weight isn’t going to solve your knee issues
-the typical “pain trap” that people get caught in
-why swimming probably won’t make you feel better long term
-what you’re missing overall.
