Don’t let knee pain ruin your quality of life
Left untreated, knee pain can ruin your quality of life. Aside from being in constant pain, giving up the things you love to do can really affect how you interact with the world around you.
Whether it’s playing sport, spending time with your children, or just walking to the park with your grand-kids, there are better things to do in life than suffer knee pain.
Here are 4 helpful things that you can do today
While there are no quick-fixes to knee pain, you can recover faster by understanding what is causing your pain and starting a recovery plan. Try these four helpful things today:
1. Decide to get help
Don’t put off getting help. Delaying treatment can often make things worse. Take a positive step today and make the decision to get help.
2. Do the RIGHT exercises
Your Osteopath can give you exercises to help reduce your knee pain. These exercises are designed to help restore movement to the joint and minimise damage in the future.
3. Avoid sitting in awkward positions
We were not designed to sit for as long as we do. It’s an awkward, unnatural position and our knees just don’t like it. If you really can’t avoid the amount of sitting that you are currently doing, your osteo will give you strengthening exercises to help you improve your posture and get active.
