Protect Your Knees

Running can leave you with SERIOUS knee pain. But do you know why? It’s because of the way you run! If you can reduce the impact of each foot step while running, you will reduce your knee pain. You can do this by:

Leaning forward from your ankles and landing on the middle of your feet,  keeping your knees soft and bent during landing to support your stride, and keeping your feet pointed in the same direction you are running. ~ Active.com

These little changes In order to keep your knees in great shape, your running technique is very crucial.  Reducing the amount of shock that is absorbed by your knees, can help prevent knee pain and erosion of cartilage. It’s never too early to think about your health. If YOU need knee treatment or surgery, give us a call at (323) 264-7600 for a consultation.
