Living with knee pain can lead a poor quality of life. Let’s face it, your knees aren’t as young as they used to be. And playing with the kids or grandkids isn’t any easier either. Maybe your knee pain prevents you from walking, going up and down stairs or doing extended standing.
For some people, they had to give up their favorite hobbies (like golf, bowling or playing in their garden). Nothing’s worse than feeling great mentally, but physically being held back from life because your knee hurts and the pain just won’t go away.
The immobility caused by chronic knee pain can ruin one’s quality of life. Simple things like going to the grocery store, running errands, traveling, going up and down the stairs, housework, maintaining your property, cooking, yard work, and being able to engage in projects becomes troublesome to impossible. For some people, they feel they need to find a close parking spot when they go out to eat (to minimize the number of steps they have to walk). For others, it feels like their independence is being stripped away.
