5. Weight Loss
Being overweight is also sometimes the reason behind knee pain. This is because knees have to carry a lot of weight on them that can cause wear and tear. Every pound that you lose feels like 5 lesser pounds on knee. Exercise and a healthy diet are the best way to lose weight.
According to one study, if you combine both to lose weight, not only you’ll achieve a fit body, but your knee pain will also be relieved and the function will be restored.
What you need to know is that some knees respond to glucosamine or chondroitin while some don’t. This is why, in studies, the benefit of these looks statistically nonexistent on average.
However, it is worth a try for around 2 to 3 months. If it works, it can help a lot.
