But there are some common tips and tricks you can use to relieve your knee pain and maintain an active lifestyle.
We know you’re most likely busy this summer and are looking for some quick strategies to relieve your knee pain on the go, so continue reading to learn 4 quick tips to end the pain, stiffness, and discomfort in your knees…
“My Knee Pain Is Getting Worse Even After Resting“
Resting is the most commonly prescribed treatment for knee pain, and doctors will often spend 5 minutes (if you’re lucky) reviewing your condition just to tell you the same thing they tell everyone else… Rest!
Not only does rest not resolve your knee pain at the source, but it can actually make it worse over time.
By not exercising, your knees can become weaker and more likely to lead to injury in the future.
Rest is also not helpful in terms of leading a normal life.
So, if you want to remain active and take advantage of your summer, then resting is the last thing you want to do. Here are some proactive tips you can take and implement into your routine to stop your knee pain from wrecking your hobbies, exercise and lifestyle.
Tip 1 – Make Sure To Stretch Regularly
Focus on stretches that target the muscles and ligaments around your knee to give it extra support.
Stretching regularly can help prevent knee pain from coming back.
Tip 2 – Wear Arch Supports or Orthotics
Arch supports can provide additional support for the foot and ankle which can reduce stress on the knee joint.
Orthotics are custom-made inserts that fit into your shoe to help align the bones of the foot correctly and reduce strain on the knee joint.
Tip 3 – Increase Strength With Exercises
Stronger muscles surrounding the knee joint can provide additional support for the knee.
Look into leg strengthening exercises such as squats, lunges, straight-leg raises, step-ups, calf raises, and wall squats.
Tip 4 – Shockwave Therapy Is A Powerful Treatment To Relieve Knee Pain
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment method for knee pain that uses sound waves to stimulate the healing process.
This approach works by increasing circulation and blood flow, thus helping to reduce inflammation and break down fibrous tissue.
The result is less pain and improved mobility in the affected area.
