How to avoid knee injuries
Knee injuries can not only be painful but problematic. You may be unable to walk, drive or take part in activities while you are recovering. You may even need surgery or have your leg in a brace or cast. To avoid injuring your knees, you can try these preventive suggestions:
- Wear knee guards during sports activities
- If you are a gardener or spend a lot of time on the ground, consider getting a knee board to cushion the impact on your joints
- Stretch before and after exercise
- Wear your seat belt to avoid bashing your knees into the steering column in an accident
- Make sure you have been assessed at work if anything is causing you discomfort
- Use correct techniques when lifting or playing sports
