Walking

August 5, 2012

Mall walkers

When suffering from knee pain caused by osteoarthritis simple tasks like walking can be agonizing. However, walking is a great low impact exercise which can be done almost anywhere. Walking allows the knee to move through a normal range of motion with low impact on joints. Walking is easy to do, requires only your time and effort and can also help you lose weight.

It is important to walk on an even surface such as a track or treadmill. However, if you’re looking for a heated or air conditioned, flat surface, without a gym membership a shopping mall might be a perfect solution.  Malls provide stable walking conditions, heat or air conditioning and even a little window shopping. You can increase your distance or time as your knee grows stronger and more accustomed to your routine.
