Stretch and mobilise
‘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.
