Your knee joint supports your body weight and enables you to bend and straighten your leg. It is the most complicated joint in the body and also the one that is subject to the most stress. Your knees are essential for walking, running, standing and sitting and, for every pound you weigh they receive four times the amount of stress. So, one of the best things you can do for your knee health is to maintain a healthy body weight. It’s also important to wear shoes that offer adequate support to avoid putting pressure on your knees.
