Proper Footwear Can Help Prevent Knee Pain

We are on our feet constantly during the day and that makes it vital that we find the right shoe that can help prevent knee pain, since the knee joint takes a lot of pressure during walking. Look for shoes that are well-cushioned, in order to prevent shock to the knee; that have firm midsoles, to reduce overpronation; and those that have stability features, like athletic shoes. Try to wear pumps in moderation and stay clear of high heels. Studies have shown that women who wear high heels have 23 percent more force applied to their knees, which can lead to trauma.[1]

If you cannot find proper shoes, ask your doctor about shoe orthotics. They can help alleviate knee pain by providing additional cushioning.
