Stretch and mo­bilise

Good Housekeeping (UK) - - Good Health -

‘Alot of the time, knee prob­lems are a re­sult of our an­kles or hips not be­ing mo­bile enough, or tight quads or ham­strings from sit­ting down all day,’ says Joanna. Pain could also be linked to an old in­jury, wear­ing heels, cross­ing your legs or al­ways car­ry­ing your hand­bag on one side.

Do this calf stretch: stand fac­ing a wall, with your toes touch­ing the wall, then bend your knees so they also make con­tact with the wall. Zumba classes are good for hip mo­bil­ity, too, and some peo­ple find sit­ting on a Swiss ball, go­ing round in small cir­cles, helps. You could also raise your seat by a cou­ple of cen­time­tres.
