Do You have Knee or Hip Pain When Walking? Put the Spring Back in Your Step Do you find it harder to walk, run or exercise? Is hip, knee, or leg pain keeping you frombeing active? If so, understanding how your body walks and moves can be the key to putting the spring back in your step. Think of your body as a big spring that stores and releases energy with every step. The efficiency of your walk comes from the effectiveness of your flexibility, strength, and balance. When any one of these is off, it affects your ability to walk efficiently and takes a lot of energy. This results in strain to different joints and makes muscles work much harder than they need to. This leads to possible pain in the back, hips, and knees. It also causes fatigue after walking, even for a little while. If you are experiencing pain after therapy, it might be becausemuscles or joints have tightened or become weak.
