If you or a loved one has knee pain, it can interfere with the quality of life. Every step is a painful reminder of the problem, and any short trip becomes an arduous task.
What is Knee Pain?
The knee is a vulnerable joint that bears a great deal of stress from everyday activities, such as lifting and kneeling, and from high-impact activities, such as jogging and aerobics. Many knee problems are a result of the aging process and continual wear and stress on the knee joint (such as, arthritis). Other knee problems are a result of an injury or a sudden movement that strains the knee.
Knee Pain and Flat Feet
Most knee problems develop in adults have their origins in the feet. Flat feet and other foot problems can put excessive stress on the knee joints, which causes inflammations and degeneration.
A study established in 2011 found that those with flat feet had 1.3 times the odds of knee pain and 1.4 times the odds of knee cartilage damage
