Easy Way to Ease Knee Pain

I know I have unbearable knee pain.  So, when I read this article, I had to share this simple solution to ease that pain. According to the August 2010 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine, it turns out that unsupportive shoes, like flip-flops might be better for knee pain than walking shows or hospital clogs.  A study at Rush University Medical Center found that bare feet and shoes mimic barefoot mechanics, like flat, flexible shoes and flip-flops.  It is said to put less pressure on the knee than super supportive styles.  In fact, barely-there footwear, which lessens impact as you walk, reduces joint loads as much as orthotics and knee braces do.  So if you're suffering from knee arthritis, or you're at risk, go flat and flexible whenever you can.  I'm just going to kick off my shoes or wear flip-flops for slippers in this cold weather.
