Maintain a Healthy Weight
Your knees must bear the weight of your body. Being overweight or obese might have a significant impact on them. According to Johns Hopkins, if you’re just 10 pounds overweight, the strain on your knee as you take each step increases by 30 to 60 pounds.
Overweight women are about four times more likely than healthy-weight women to have knee osteoarthritis. Diet and exercise can help you achieve a healthier weight.
