KICK BACK AND RELAX! F IND RELI EF FOR YOUR KNEE AND HIP PAIN
If you are experiencing knee pain, there is a good chance the pain is rooted in your kneecap or patella. Every time you bend your knee, your kneecap needs enough space to move up and down between your femur bone and the bend of your knee. Unfortunately, if this area becomes inflamed, then the tissues surrounding the kneecap will become tighter, and the kneecap will not have as much space tomove. It will try to squeeze through the inflamed padding, causing pain in the knee, and causing the padding to grow thicker andmore irritated. When this happens, the joint fluid inside your knee will begin to dry out, resulting in more friction and pain.

Knee and hip pain occur when the joints and muscles surrounding those areas lack their normal function. If the joint isn’t functioning properly, it can alter one’s mobility, which will increase pressure on the area. This can cause the area to become inflamed, thus resulting in pain. If you are experiencing hip pain, it is likely that there is a problem with your hip joint. When this happens, you will experience pain inside of your hip, or in your groin area. If you are experiencing pain outside of your hip, in your upper thigh, or buttock region, then it is likely that there is a problem with the muscles, tendons, ligements, or soft tissues surrounding the hip joint. Regardless of where the pain is stemming from, hippain is typically causedby injury or strain to the joint or surrounding regions; however, thepain can also be due to an underlying disease, such as arthritis.
