It is important to always use the proper postures for certain actions such as for sitting, lifting heavy objects, sleeping, and even just standing. Pain in the knees can often be related to improper posture for such things; especially lifting heavy objects, which could cause problems for your legs, knees, back, and neck if it is done incorrectly.
There are several ways to maintain and reduce knee pain; the best way is to rest you knee (specifically elevated). Use an Ice pack to reduce pain (this also reduces swelling if there is any). You can also compress your knee with an elastic bandage (this also helps with pain and swelling) and avoid putting stress on your knee. If pain persists or you feel your knee pain is a symptom for something worse, contact Pegasus Pain Management to find the treatment that is right for you.

One of the most popular injuries in sports is a torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament); this is the tough strip behind your knee that connects the thigh bone to the shin bone. It can be torn by stretching too far or by being worn down. This is an urgent medical issue, so if you believe you have torn your ACL contact Pegasus Pain Management before the injury becomes long term.

Step 1: Bend your knees into a squat position right in front of the object (do not lean forward with a small bend in the knee)
Step 2: Grab a hold of the object (the bottom of the object if normally the best place to lift from)
Step 3: Straighten your legs to lift the load (do not lift above shoulder level and avoid twisting your body while holding the load)
