Say ‘No’ to Knee Problems

knee pain

Knee pain is a very common problem which can result in difficulty with many daily activities. It can greatly limit our functional mobility. Some people also experience stiffness in and around the knee causing difficulty moving the joint and generalized weakness in the affected leg. 

How Knee Pain Can Affect Us

Having pain or stiffness in our knee can cause:

  • Difficulty walking
  • Pain with going up or down the stairs
  • Pain with squatting
  • Difficulty standing up from a chair
  • Inability to kneel
  • Difficulty with lifting, pushing, or pulling objects. 
  • Difficulty moving after staying in a prolonged position
  • Inability to sit for a period of time.

These restrictions can really limit your normal daily routine and become a serious problem.

Causes of Knee Problems

Knee problems can stem from many different causes. The most common cause of knee pain and dysfunction, is weakness of the muscles surrounding the hip and knee, resulting in abnormal joint mechanics. When the knee joint is not moving properly there is unnecessary rubbing and pressure in the joint that will cause pain and inflammation. 

This pain and inflammation can cause even more muscle weakness and tightness which will result in further stress on our knee joints. The longer you experience symptoms, the weaker and stiffer your knee can become, further limiting your mobility.
