Knee pain is fairly common, especially as we age. Many of us simply accept that as we get older, our knees will hurt – but it doesn’t have to be this way!
While working on strengthening our legs and the muscles around our knees is a great way to help avoid and stay out of knee pain, it isn’t the full story.
One of the most common misconceptions about pain is that the place that hurts is the problem.
The knee is a great example. When your knee hurts, many people think that it’s a knee problem. But your knee is actually suffering because of what’s going on above and below.
That is why I wanted to share a little secret with you about knee pain. All too often, your knee hurts because your ankle doesn’t move very well!
You see, when your ankle gets stuck, your knee has to compensate, and that leads to pain and injury.
So, if you’ve been struggling with knee aches and pains, check out the video below to see how to improve your ankle mobility and take some of the pressure off your knee!
