Why does low impact exercise protect me from injury?

Strength and balance training will protect your knees from injury.

Balance and stability training helps the muscles around your knees work together more effectively to brace and support your knees. Once you have developed this foundation of stability, you can work on strengthening the muscles around your joints to help protect the joints from injury. Your quadriceps and hamstrings work together to support your knees, so leg lifts, squats, and similar functional strength straining exercises that involve your lower body are a good way to protect your knees.
