Leg Strength Correlates to Risk of Fall and Loss of Balance

Muscle weakness especially in the legs are dangerous to be neglected as you may experience poor balance, difficulty walking, muscle and joint pain and cramps. This will also increase the risk of fall which can cause broken bones or hip fractures and head injuries and even death.  

Muscles gradually get weaker as we get older, but there are also a number of reasons why your muscles get weaker, including being less active or sedentary, lack of exercise especially in terms of strength training and leg problems such as joint pain, leg numbness and cramps. When your muscles get weaker, it increases your chances of falling and worsens leg problems.

 

Weak Leg Muscles Wear Out Knee Cartilage Faster

The largest muscles are located in your lower body. Your legs support you in everyday activities and act as the base of your support as you walk, run and jump. Literally, the leg muscles bear your body weight and therefore obesity adds on additional pressure on the muscles, further weakening it.

When your leg muscles get weak and cannot support your body weight, your body weight will be transferred to your cartilage, resulting in increased pressure on your cartilage, and thus faster wearing off of muscles during movement. 

Weak leg muscles may cause circulation in your lower body to slow down because blood and oxygen in your legs are pushed back to the upper body through muscle contraction and relaxation
