ABOUT Knee Injury Prevention

Prevention of Knee Injury

Increase your activity level slowly over time. For example, when you begin exercising again, walk rather than run.

Always warm up before exercising and cool down afterward. Stretch your quadriceps and hamstrings.

Replace your sports shoes often. Get good advice about proper footwear for your foot shape and mechanics. For example, if you pronate (land on the outside of your heel and turn your foot inward), consider anti-pronation footwear.
