The knee helps you absorb shock and bear weight when you move. If you experience knee pain, everyday movements can quickly become difficult or even excruciating. Knee pain can affect people of all ages, and it usually results from an injury or medical condition such as arthritis.

How To Cope With Knee Pain Every Day
Wondering how to deal with knee pain every day? Here are five things you can do to ease the pain and get through your daily routine better.
1. Evaluate Your Pain
If you have mild or moderate pain, you could treat it at home. If your pain is severe or worsening over time, seek medical attention for a complete examination.
2. Exercise Regularly
Cardio increases flexibility overall and strengthens the muscles that support the knee, while weight training and stretching can be a great way to reduce knee joint pain in the long term. When working out, be easy on your joints.
3. Manage Inflammation With RICE
You can relieve pain and swelling and promote healing and flexibility with a simple approach called RICE, which stands for Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation.
4. Maintain a Healthy Weight
Excess weight puts greater stress or pressure on your knees. If you’re overweight, losing weight can help relieve knee pain.
5. Wear Comfortable Shoes
Wearing the right shoes can mean the difference between a minor inconvenience and severe knee pain. Make sure your shoes provide ample arch support, promote healthy posture, and fit correctly.
