Knee pain and injuries can be avoided by following certain precautions and rules in life:
- Taking caution in the body weight, since overweight can result in osteoarthritis. Keep track and maintain the weight, thereby decreasing the stress given to knees due to overweight. It can also avoid knee injuries.
- Wearing sensible shoes that fit and help in proper leg alignment and can balance the weight of the body, thereby preventing the chances of any injuries.
- Whenever you start any exercise or sports activities, before getting stretching done, do warm-up exercises. These would help reduce the tension in tendons, thereby relieving the stress or pressure in the knees.
- Better go for some low impact exercises which can offer you strong workout but less effort. Better select a rowing machine or a cross country skiing machine if you go to the gym to do exercises.
