Guardian Knee Brace – The best way to avoid knee pain is of course prevention, but I’m sure you know that already! Plus, if you’re reading this, you’re probably already struggling with knee pain. It can be a horrible experience – not being able to stand, sit, walk, or even sleep, because the pain is so excruciating. It can make even the most cheerful person absolutely miserable. But here’s some good news – there are things you can do, easy things, to make your knees happier. Here are some tips and tricks to help you get rid of the pain in your knees:

 

1. Diet

Most of the knee pain is caused by inflammation in the joint. There are many things that can cause inflammation – a bad diet, a sedentary lifestyle, genetic predisposition, a history of injuries, etc. As soon as inflammation in the joint occurs, the knee starts to swell and ache. You can experience stiffness, throbbing, or pain. What is the best way to fight off the inflammation and get rid of the knee pain? You have several options. You can of course start taking expensive (and invasive!) medication, but some alternative remedies can actually be found in your… fridge. There are certain types of foods, that, if consumed regularly, can significantly reduce inflammation and lessen the knee pain. Make sure your diet is rich in omega-3 acids, which can be found in nuts, seeds, good-quality oils and fish. You can also include more leafy green vegetables in your diets, which have many healthy benefits. The products you need to say ‘goodbye’ to are: sugar (especially in the form of sodas and fizzy beverages!), trans fats, and highly-processed foods. Make your food from scratch as often as you can, and your knees will thank you for it.

2. Exercise

There are also many types of low-intensity exercise that you can do to lessen the knee pain. Here are some of the examples:

a. The forward lunge for stronger knees

 

b. Wall squats

 

However, please note wall squats can be painful if knee pain is already present. In this case, chair squats or Air Squats are a great alternative to wall squats.

 

c. Straight Leg Raise

 

3. Guardian Knee Brace
