Knee pain is a common problem, especially for older adults and the knees are one of the most challenging joints in the body to care for.
One of the worst ways to treat knees is to wait until they are painful because it means a medical issue is developing. Keeping knee joints healthy and free from injury can prevent knee pain. With the right information you can keep your knees from wearing out so they actually last your whole lifetime!
Over the years, your knees endure a lot of wear and tear as you fight against gravity to move and walk. In addition to the natural, inevitable aging of the knee joints, other factors can make you more susceptible to pain. Osteoarthritis, injury, excess body weight and lack of muscle strength and flexibility can all cause or contribute to knee problems. Injuries can eventually develop into osteoarthritis if left untreated. Weak or inflexible muscles put undue stress on the joints. Without muscular strength and flexibility to safely support your full range of motion, your knees are at a greater risk of injury.
Your knees absorb a huge amount of pressure with every step — typically one-and-a-half times your body weight. That pressure, plus regular wear and tear, takes a toll over time. Muscles and ligaments get weaker. The knee's two shock absorbers — pads of cartilage called menisci — start to deteriorate. So does the articular cartilage protecting the ends of the leg bones where they meet at the knee. If you have a family history of osteoarthritis, if you're overweight, or if you've had some knee injuries, you may be more prone to this deterioration.
Fortunately, there are ways to fool Father Time and postpone knee problems or even prevent them entirely.
