Sponsored - Knee pain can really limit your ability to get out and do the things you love. Whether it’s a sport- or work-related injury, or chronic pain from arthritis, there are quite a few things you can do to help alleviate that pain, and get you back to dancing, biking and running again. Here are just 3 of those ways:
1. Get back to the basics with proper rest
It’s true: too much rest is not good for your leg muscles. But you still need to make sure you’re resting your knees from your usual activities, and especially those that put a repetitive strain on them. Use the “RICE” acronym: Rest, ice, compression, and elevation to alleviate some of that pain.
2. Take it to the next level with movement
There are many exercises you can do that won’t put too much pressure on your knees. If you’re unsure about where to begin, just talk to your healthcare provider. Start slow, with simple movements like walking, swimming, or riding a stationary bike, then gradually work your way up to more moderate activities. Consider safe and effective over-the-counter medicines to ward off minor aches and pains as you strengthen the muscles that support your knees.
3. When all else fails, talk to the professionals
Sometimes the pain isn’t easily treated on your own. Instead, look for the right support from a local healthcare provider. Orthopedic specialists can quickly get to the source of your pain—in most cases—and give you options that can minimize or stop the pain, or otherwise restore movement and allow for better healing and recovery in and around your knee joints.
