If you’re overweight and have osteoarthritis, especially of the knee, losing weight can significantly alleviate symptoms. By increasing wear and tear on weight-bearing joints, obesity worsens cartilage breakdown and arthritis pain. But possibly more important are the systemic effects of obesity, concludes a new review article published in the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. And if you are overweight and don't have arthritis of the knee, losing excess weight can help prevent the development of the disease.

Hi could someone give me some advice, i don't know if this is a strange one but my GF has been moaning that her knees look chubby!! You can't lose body fat from selcted areas, the only thing you can do is reduce bodyfat overall. Lets be honest though 'chubby knees' is a typical girl thing that us men don't see or understand.
As you can see there are no muscles in the actual knee, just connective tissue to the joint.

For instance, obesity increases inflammation and causes other metabolic changes that can contribute to arthritis. So i'm wondering what exercises she could do to get rid of the so called chubbyness and not gain muscle by doing leg extensions etc etc.
