How to Help Your Knees


How to Help Your Knees


Wearing good supportive shoes will help.  If you are flat footed, it can affect the pain in your knees but also can give you pain in your back and hips.  If need arises, orthotics can help. 


Losing unwanted weight will help as any high impact activities are extra hard on the knees.  Running is difficult and should be avoid. Non-force exercise such as walking or swimming are good alternatives.


Concentrate on building strength and flexibility. Stretch the hamstrings, quadriceps and hip flexors. These muscles provide the support for you knee and ensure that your knee tracks properly. Yoga or Pilates are a good way to exercise these muscles.


Chiropractic care will help you with misalignments of your spine and this in turn with help any misalignment that may be making one leg shorter than the other. It will also help you with your gait and that in turn will help you with your knees.
