Knee Pain when Bending

Advice for Knee Pain When Bending


The knee is a hinge joint formed by two bones, the tibia and femur, which are held together by muscles, tendons, a joint capsule, and four main ligaments - the lateral collateral ligament, medial collateral ligament, posterior cruciate ligament, and anterior cruciate ligament.

* Maintain ideal body weight: Being overweight puts extra strain on your knees.


* Avoid overuse of your joint, especially in using the stairs or bicycle.


* Walking aid: Walking with a limp can put extra strain on your body. Use a cane, walking stick or walking to help you walk with less pain and without a limp.


* Move your knee often: If you have been sitting for a while, bend and straighten your knee several times before you get up. Arthritic joints feel better with gentle movements and worse if you don't move for a long period.


* Cold or Heat: Place cold or heat packs on your knees for 8-15 minutes as needed to help manage your pain. Place a thin layer of cloth between the ice or heat and your skin.


* Comfortable shoes: Good cushioning and arch support can make standing and walking more comfortable. Avoid non-supportive and high heels shoes.
