DO YOU KNEES HURT?

Tuesday, May 14, 2013 • Sunnyvale, TX 75182



 Just read a short article by injury specialist and exercise physiologist Rick Kaselj, MS suggesting the position you keep your knee in, is partly causing knee pain.

Positions include 1. sitting down with your knees bent. 2. With your feet crossed 3. Your feet behind you and under your chair.

How often do you find yourself in those positions? Me, a lot. Here is a quick simple fix. While you are sitting at your desk, on the couch, in a meeting, or watching a movie, remember to keep your knees straight when you can to decrease stress on the knee. While in that position, squeeze your quad muscle, hold that squeeze for 3- 5 sec. Repeat 5-10 times on each leg.

Hope this helps.
