How to Protect Your Knees While Hiking

Hiking is an incredible way to charge your mood. You also get to spend considerable amount of time outdoors and challenge yourself, both physically and mentally. Whether you are young or old, long hiking periods will eventually take a toll your joints.

Knee Specialist in Mumbai, Dr. Amyn Rajani feels that even the strongest and experienced hikers can injure themselves or have knee joint pain, because your knees are literally carrying an entire body’s weight when walking. Many hikers are aware of the physical challenges they are going to face in difficult hiking conditions, yet lack the knowledge to combat it.

Let’s have a look at simple ways in which you can care and prepare your knee joints for your next hiking trip:

Lighter Shoes, Please!

Even if you are a fan of big, old styled boots, avoid them at all costs. Regular sports shoes with good soles and proper cushioning should be your pick, always.


Hiking Poles

These should be one of the top items in your hiking checklist. Buy a pair, learn how to use them the right way and you’ll see how useful they are while you’re going downhill.


Travel Light

Most of the times heavy backpacks are the reason why your back and knees hurt so much. Carry only the things you feel you won’t be able survive without in an unknown terrain.


Hiking After Total Knee Replacement:

Are my hiking days over?” a common question that a lot of hikers ask their orthopaedician after undergoing Total Knee Replacement Surgery. Duration of recovery after any surgery depends on a combination of factors, such as good diet, rehabilitation, exercise and rest. Follow all the rehabilitation tips and exercises prescribed by your doctor and you will find that your hiking days are far from over.
