Knee pain is one of the most common types of pain that people complain about. Symptoms could range from swelling and redness to being completely incapable of straightening your leg. Knees are an important part of the body to maintain health is because they’re so tied into your mobility and quality of life.
What’s causing the pain?
Injury is one of the most obvious causes of knee pain. Also, there are so many kinds of arthritis, a lot of which can affect the knee. If that’s not your issue, it could be patellofemoral pain syndrome. Otherwise, the problem could be dislocation or even something that’s the result of another part of your body.
How to prevent it
Staying at a healthy weight is one way to avoid knee pain. Another method is to stay active, while not pushing yourself too much. Exercising regularly helps with your whole health, but going too far won’t be good in the long run. Also, stretching helps maintain flexibility, as tight muscles increase the risk of injury.
