July 1, 2009 - PRLog -- Do any of activities in the following paragraph sound like knee pain scenarios you endure?

You don’t enjoy going to the movies. You avoid long car rides. You dread sitting at your desk at work to finish an important assignment.

Why? - Is it that you're anti-social, or dislike travel, or hate your job?

No! It’s the result of the knee pain you feel when sitting. When you are sitting down for an extended period of time, your knees start to really give you problems. The pain problems can become more problematic the longer you sit, until you can't put up with it anymore. But the bright side is that you do not have to put up with it anymore. The relief you've been looking for could be something as simple as a low profile, light weight knee brace. Here's why...

A lot of people may think that knee pain occurs only with activity. This is a mistaken assumption.  Knee aches and pains when sitting are a common problem. - Maybe you can relate.

Knee aches when sitting is typically felt in the front of the knee, in the area of the kneecap (patella). Generally, this type of pain is caused by the compression of the patella and the cartilage underneath.  Normally when the knee is bent the pressure against the kneecap (caused by the pulling of the attached muscles and tendons) increases.

Over time, knee ache when sitting can be felt, especially if the patella is not sitting exactly as it should within the femoral groove. The ache may become worse the longer you sit. This type of pain (called patellofemoral pain syndrome), may occur in one knee or both. Still, while this condition is a common cause of knee pain problems while sitting, it may not be the exact cause of your particular pain, and it is always wise to have your condition evaluated by a qualified physician.

In the meantime, while your symptoms might be partially relieved by taking a break from your sitting position, or by icing the knees while sitting, it would be preferable to prevent the knee ache while sitting from occurring altogether. A knee support can be the thing to help you do this.

A knee brace is designed to lend support to your knee joint. When used properly, a support can help relieve the pressure on the knee cap as it is rests in the femoral groove while you are sitting. A knee brace may also help keep the patella properly aligned within the femoral groove, thus helping to relieve the ache caused by the compression when sitting.

Once you have found that rest will not cut it, it may be time for you to consider a knee support.  You will look back and wonder what you were doing without one.
