Knee Pain: If We Met… I’d Tell You To Avoid Doing These 7 Things Which Only Make Knee Pain Worse

Imagine if we met by chance…

Let’s say you and I were introduced to each other by a mutual friend…

When you realised I was a Physiotherapist, I’d bet the first question you’d ask me would go something like this:


“Oh you’re a Physio are you Paul… whilst you’re here then, can I just ask you a quick question – what’s the best thing to do for my bad knee…?”


Because it happens nearly everywhere I go.

And it’s really nice to be honest.

Never get tired of being able to help people and when it comes to knee pain and stopping it, it’s often a simple case of “do this, but don’t do that…”

And my first response to your question would NOT be to tell you “what to do”…

It’ would be to tell you “what NOT to do”.

Simply AVOIDING the 7 things that make pain worse, usually makes a significant difference before I even get to work by hand.

And here are 7 things I’d tip you off to avoid:


1.) Rest – too much can so often mean that you’re making your knee muscles WEAKER and therefore more prone to problems further down the line (A.K.A Arthritis).

2.) Take GP advice – I have lots of respect for GP’s, but the blunt reality is that they are NOT trained deeply enough to give solid knee pain RECOVERY advice.

3.) Rely upon painkillers – doing so means you’ll NEVER get to the root cause of the knee pain in the first place.

4.) Doing wrong/generic exercises at the wrong time – Best NOT to do exercises when you’re in pain as you’re only going to make things worse.

5.) Wear a neoprene knee support – wearing one of these everyday will weaken the muscles around your knee meaning that within three months, your knee is going to be in a worse state than it was before you started wearing one.

6.) Sitting ON your knees or with your legs bent back, or crossed – doing this for just 20 mins per day, is going to ADD to your problems, if it didn’t cause them in the first place.

7.) Wear the wrong footwear – if you’re wearing sandals, high heels or plimsole style trainers, you’re adding massive amounts of stress to your knee and increasing the length of time you will suffer.

So there you have them…all the things you would do well to avoid.

…And hopefully what I’ve shown to you is the most valuable part of you going to see a Specialist Physio isn’t necessarily JUST to get the “hands on” treatment.

(Although that’s VERY important…)

You going to see a Specialist Physio will mean an end to confusion, solid answers to concerning questions, an accurate diagnosis AND an expected time frame for a full recovery, too.

Most people who come visit me suffering with knee pain, they can put up with it…

“They just don’t want too”.

(Enjoying their health means the world to them…)

And so what they really want from me is an END to the fear and the frustration of not knowing what’s going wrong.

Once you know that, wouldn’t you agree it’s much easier to enjoy life again knowing that someone knows what’s wrong AND that they’re able to do something about it?

Does that sound like something that would help you?…
