Preventing Knee Pain

As a personal trainer, I have been training clients of all ages for over 8 years and have helped them eliminate knee pain by teaching them how to move properly. Here is a list of common everyday exercises, when done properly can help you eliminate knee pain.

________________________________

How to Get Up from a Seated Position:

Place feet in front of you with knees bent at a 90 degree angle. Press into the heels of your feet, pushing up from your glutes.

________________________________

How to Walk Up Stairs:

Step up, pressing into the heel of the foot, pushing up from your glutes.

________________________________

How to Get out of the Car:

Turn to your side placing both feet on the ground with a 90 degree angle at the knee. Press through the heels of your feet, pushing up from your glutes.

________________________________

Moving properly will help keep stress off your knee joints and strengthen your leg muscles simultaneously.
