Knee Pain

Knee pain can be due to a localized injury or trauma causing a torn ligament, tendon, meniscus, fracture, bursitis, tendinitis, obesity, arthritis, overuse (runner's knee), gout, etc. Although pain due to minor injury resolves on its own, diagnosis and correction of the underlying cause are essential to get rid of long-standing severe knee pain. Weight reduction is necessary to treat the present or prevent future knee pain in obese people. Adequate rest, physiotherapy, knee braces, surgery, medication, etc., are the available treatment options based on the diagnosis.

Answer: Hi, Welcome to icliniq.com. Deadlifts are safe unless you do them incorrectly. And the most common of all the mistakes is to pull with the lower back bent, which causes uneven pressure on the spinal disks and results in bulged disks, pinching of nerves, and spraining of the surrounding tissues.
