Patients with knee pain have “impaired ability to absorb load” when landing from a jump, leading to more pain.
While knee pain can come from many sources, here are 5 tips that can help:
✅Minimize activities that provoke your pain, especially running & jumping 🏃
✅Don’t allow your knees to cross in front of your toes when squatting
✅Modify your activity to include swimming or bicycling instead of running 🚴
✅Put ice around your knee for 10-15 minutes 2x per day ❄
Additionally, check out the exercise attached to help strengthen weakened hip & thigh muscles to ease knee pain.
