If you or anyone you know suffers from knee pain, you’ll know annoying it is and how it can stop you from getting on with your life.
Chronic knee pain due to arthritis is very common; in fact by the age of 85, 50% of all Americans will experience the pain of arthritis in the knees, which is a huge number of people!
Arthritis can occur well before the age of 85 though, I know I’m in my 40’s and I often get niggling knee pain – it scares me to think it might get worse as I get older. The pain experienced is due to a loss of space between your bones that cartilage provides.
Doctors and healthcare professionals even advise that it is best to stop running after the age of 40, as this can cause premature stress and ageing of the knees.
There is actually a remedy to this pain though, and you won’t believe what it is….
If you are beginning to suffer from knee pain, or have felt the effects of arthritis in your knees for some time, you will find there is an amazingly simple stretching technique which can be VERY helpful.
It is also a great stretch as a preventative for knee pain, as it provides a way to create space between the bones in this joint, that is necessary for healthy and pain-free mobility.
