The Benefits of Losing Weight to Treat Knee Pain

Being overweight can further burden your knee joints, causing you to experience pain and inflammation. Weight loss may be recommended to help treat your knee pain. The extra weight increases the pressure and stress on the knee(s) with each step taken. Losing excess weight can have a direct positive impact on knee pain as it decreases the amount of pressure and stress that the knee is under. Continual pressure on the knee can cause damage to the joints. This can lead to decreased ranges of motion, stiffness, swelling and pain. It can also lead to arthritic changes within the  knee. The knee joint needs to be pliable, flexible and free of any hindrances in order to pump fluid in and out of the joint  capsule and maintain a healthy equilibrium.
