Many people have had a minor knee problem at one time or another. Knee pain is responsible for about 1/3 of all doctor's visits for muscle and bone pain. Directional movements we make during activities can strain the knee, causing inflammation throughout the whole knee, or a specific area. Symptoms may develop from everyday wear and tear or when hunting. One of the most common forms of knee pain is pronation and Supination, which causes the knee to rotate out of alignment.
SYMPTOMS FROM KNEE PAIN
- Pain behind or around the kneecap
- Pain when you bend the knee
- Pain when walking, squatting, kneeling, running, or even sitting.
- Pain that's worse when walking downstairs or downhill.
- Popping or grinding sensations in the knee.
- Restriction of mobility
SheepFeet Custom Hunting Orthotics help to keep the feet in a neutral position and helps eliminate harmful rotations causing stress on the knee joint. Hiking on steep angles and uneven terrain can cause more inflammation to occur in the knee if the proper alignment isn't maintained. Some knee pain can result from a severe injury that should be seen and evaluated by a doctor. SheepFeet help prevent damage, so hopefully, you don't have to take this path.
