Never missing an opportunity to educate people on the importance of knee injury prevention, Dr. Tehrany discussed several crucial ways to protect these joints.

His tips to the readers of POPSUGAR Fitness included:
(1) a mandatory warm-up session prior to any exercise which helps keep the muscles safe and the joints healthy;
(2) working on balance and feeling independently secure on each leg;
(3) focusing on form during all exercises;
(4) performing exercises that improve neuromuscular control and kneecap mobility.
