Abnormal Posture Can Cause Knee Pain

How are these connected?

Poor posture can contribute to knee pain by putting extra stress on the knee joint. When your posture is incorrect, your weight distribution can be unevenly distributed, causing extra strain on certain areas of your body, including your knees.

For example, if you slouch or hunch forward, you may place excessive weight on the front of your knees, which can cause pain and discomfort over time. This can also lead to tightness in the muscles surrounding your knees, further exacerbating the pain.

Additionally, if your posture is incorrect, it can affect the alignment of your body, causing your knees to twist or rotate improperly. This can put extra strain on your knee joint and cause pain, especially if you engage in activities that involve a lot of running, jumping, or twisting.
