Trying to achieve 10,000 steps a day may be simple for some; however, it can have an impact on your joints. In fact, your knee joints takes a beating when you walk, absorbing at least 1.5 times your body weight with each step you take.
If you suffer from joint pain, you are not alone. Did you know joint pain affects over 5 million Australians?
In fact, 1 in 5 Australians have arthritis, 2 million Australians have osteoarthritis and 3.7 million Australians have had back pain and back problems.
Joint pain can range from being mildly irritating to debilitating. Joint pain can get in the way of you trying to achieve your fitness goals as well as everyday living, which really sucks.
