Risk Factors for Knee Pain

  • Being Overweight or Obese: People who carry extra pounds exert a greater pressure on their knees and joints. Daily activities like walking or climbing stairs can be stressful. It may also lead to the breakdown of joint cartilage over time. 

  • Reduced Muscle Flexibility or Weak Muscles: Lack of muscle strength or flexibility may cause knee injuries as they tend to offer less support and does not absorb enough stress that is exerted on the joint in course of daily activities. 

  • Sports: Certain sports prove to be more stressful for the knees especially those sports requiring jumps and pivots. 

  • Previous Injuries: if you have gone through knee injuries earlier you are more susceptible to a knee injury again.

Knee Pain Treatment

Knee pain may be accompanied by other symptoms like Swelling and stiffness, redness warm to touch skin weakness in the knee or instability, popping or crunching noises, decreased range of motion and inability to straighten the knee. The RICE (Rest-Ice-Compression-Elevation) treatment works well for sports and other knee injuries. Rest the affected area and do not try to do any straining activity. Protect the injured area and keep a small pillow below the knee while resting. Cold packs like Bodymed Cold Compression Therapy Knee Wrap give immediate relief from pain and swelling. Do not apply ice for more than 20 minutes, 3 times a day for the first 48 hours of injury. Apply a hot pack after 48 hours and begin gentle exercises. Apply gentle compression to the sore area with the help of compression bandages like 3M Coban Two Layer Compression System or braces like Bilt-Rite Practical Universal Knee Immobilizer to immobilize the knee and provide the right amount of compression for improved circulation. Elevating the injury above the heart level can also help in providing fast relief. Try the A3BS Large Foam Wedge Pillow for that purpose.
