Knee pain can be caused by problems of the muscles, connective tissues or joints. Most people going through knee problems will experience swelling, pain, redness and warmth along the knee joint.
Risk factors for knee pain include injuries, arthritis, obesity, ageing or poor foot posture.
Flatfoot posture causes the bones of the leg to twist and places too much pressure on the knee joint.
Overusing the knee during high-impact exercises or sports further increases the risk of injury, particularly due to the repetitive and intense nature of the actions involved.
Diagnosing the common causes of knee pain must be done by a health care specialist.
Treatment will depend on the cause and often includes stretching and strengthening exercises, icing and posture correction.
More severe injuries including tears or ruptures must be examined by a knee specialist.
Foot insoles from MASS4D® will help support the posture of the foot and knee in its correct position. This minimises any excessive force that may contribute to knee pain.
