WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins suffers severe knee injury!
Dr Bicos discusses his knee injury and treatment options.

Knee pain can strike at any age, but older people are most at risk. Knee joint degeneration occurs as a natural part of aging, which may culminate in osteoarthritis later in life.

Osteoarthritis (or degenerative joint disease) is called the “wear and tear” form of arthritis since it develops over years of normal activity. Knee osteoarthritis is a chronic condition and primarily found in people who have had a knee infection, injury, or are overweight.1

Being overweight increases the load on the knees, which accelerates joint damage.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is another source of knee pain. RA is a chronic autoimmune disease, which means the body’s cells attack its own tissues. It develops on both sides of the body (bilateral).

Falls, sports, and trauma can cause knee injuries. The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), medial collateral ligament (MCL), and meniscus ligaments in the knee are often torn or damaged when an injury occurs. Common injuries include:

ACL injuries: This can occur by changing directions too quickly, sudden stops, jumping, or landing, and hyperextending the knee. ACL injuries are common, sports-related injuries.1
MCL injuries: A hit to the outer knee is what commonly causes a stretch or tear of the MCL, though pain is felt along the inside of the knee.
Meniscus tears: These are common injuries with the inner meniscus most often getting injured. Sudden twisting, resulting in swelling, pain, and knee locking often cause meniscus ligaments injury.

According to exipure Exercise can also help you lose weight. Extra weight takes a toll on the joints. Reducing the weight load on your knee can ease pain and help your knees heal. Strengthening the muscles around the knee also takes pressure off of the knee. For example, strong quadriceps can offset the shock-absorbing role usually played by the meniscus or cartilage in the knee.2

Dr. Bicos discusses Jones fractures from Kevin Durant’s Injury

Dr. Bicos was asked by Beaumont Hospital to discuss Jones fractures in regards to Kevin Durant’s injury.

Can you Still Lose Weight when Injured?

What happens when you’re in the middle of your weight loss journey and you suddenly get an injury? It could be a broken fracture, a sprain, a torn ligament or tendon that prevents you for exercising for a few weeks.

Or worse still, it could be an injury requiring surgery meaning none of your usual exercise for months.

Does it mean the end to your weight loss? read this at the exipure reviews

The simple answer is ‘no’ – with a little effort, you can continue to lose weight through your recovery.

It’s a Balancing Act

It’s not just your body that you need to keep balanced after an injury. Understandably, many clients panic when they can’t exercise as they worry about where all those calories they usually burn are going to go. But there’s no need to worry too much because the experts tell us that, “Exercise is not part of the weight-loss formula,” according to Wendy Scinta, MD and President-elect of the Obesity Medicine Association. “Weight loss is all about what goes into your mouth.” In other words, if you take in fewer calories than your body needs to just function (even with little movement), you should still lose weight.

This may seem like a conflicting message, but what we are actually saying is that, although exercise is preferable, it’s not absolutely necessary. Exercise won’t technically drop the number on the scale (without concentrating on diet), but it can help you look slimmer, since muscle is denser than fat. Plus exercise will speed up your resting metabolic rate, meaning you burn slightly more calories while you sleep. That and the fact that it contributes to your overall health means people who regularly exercise hate the idea of not being able to do their usual regime, but sometimes it just can’t be helped and we need to come up with plan B.

Putting Plan B into Action

The focus is now solely on your food. Make it count. Follow our tips to ensure you don’t over consume calories while in the recovery stage of your injury. Also, consider how many calories you used to burn each day through exercise and see if you can cut that from your diet. It may not be as much as you think – for instance, a one-hour walk may just burn roughly 250 calories each day so you don’t have a huge amount to cut.
