A new research article says you should avoid the wrist exercises.
The study, published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine, looked at how hip, ankle and knee injuries were affecting people around the world.
Researchers from the University of Minnesota found that the number of hip fractures, including those in the joints, rose by about 3 per cent every year after 2010.
They also found that hip fractures were associated with a significantly higher risk of future hip and knee fractures.
“In particular, our findings suggest that an increase in joint instability may be a more significant contributor to hip fractures in older adults,” the authors wrote.
“Although there is currently no safe, effective treatment for hip fractures with a long-term duration, the current evidence suggests that the strengthening and strengthening activities we recommend in our recommendations may be beneficial for patients over a period of at least five years.”
The authors also said that the hip strengthening exercises may be more beneficial than the standard hip exercises in some patients with hip fractures.
They recommend strengthening the hip joints with weighted or elastic bands and/or a foam roller.
“For patients with severe joint pain and chronic pain, a combination of strengthening exercises and regular therapy may be appropriate, depending on their level of pain,” the researchers said.
The authors added that hip strength is a common exercise among older adults.
“We recommend that patients with knee pain receive exercises to strengthen the knee and hip, including exercises designed to strengthen their glutes, hamstrings, and upper quadriceps,” they said.
“Patients with hip pain may benefit from strengthening their hip and hamstring muscles with weighted bands, weighted foam roller, and other exercises designed for hip and hip strengthening.”
The study was conducted by researchers at the University and the University College London.
