Do maintain a healthy weightStay at a healthy weight to ward off knee pain. For every extra pound you have an extra 4 pounds of pressure on your knees as you walk around or go up and down the stairs. Small changes in weight can make a HUGE difference in eliminating knee pain!
Don't wear the wrong shoesIf you are wearing shoes constantly that do not provide proper support, you could be doing some serious damage to your knees. Instead, invest in some shoes with cushioned insoles to reduce stress on your knees.
Do work your inner thighs
When your inner thigh muscles (hip abductor muscles) are strong, they help to absorb stress while you walk so you aren't putting added stress on your knees. One easy way to start: squeeze your knees together whenever you're sitting down.
