Joya for knee pain - Causes, Symptoms and Remedies
The knee joint is the largest joint in the human body. On average, we move it almost twice a minute, therefore up to one million times a year. Every day our knee is subjected to enormous stress that can lead to signs of wear and tear in the long term. In addition, the knee is very susceptible to injury. As a result, it is not surprising that many people complain about pain in the knee area.
Common knee problems
With each step, our knee withstands a force of up to 300 kilograms and even up to two tons, when running or jumping.
Knee pain can often be attributed to injury and/or wear and tear. Upon younger people, injury-related knee problems predominate, while older people often experience knee pain, due to wear and tear.
The most common knee problems include:
- Cruciate ligament tears
- Knee osteoarthritis
- Meniscus damage
- Dislocation of the kneecap
- Malpositions, such as varus or valgus malalignment
Tips in everyday life
- Make sure your posture is upright.
- Wear soft-elastic shoes whenever possible, such as Joya shoes.
- Take small steps rather than large ones.
- Sit as little as possible. Standing desks are highly recommended, so that sitting and standing can be alternated.
- Avoid carrying heavy loads.
- When exercising, be sure to warm up. This supplies the cartilage with joint fluid and shocks are better absorbed.
- In the case of knee osteoarthritis: avoid sports that put prolonged stress on the cartilage, such as jogging for more than 5 kilometers.
- Let your legs dangle sometimes. Sit on a table, tie weights to your leg or put on ski boots. Slow, strong lifting of the toes facilitates the removal of lymph accumulated in the knee.
- If you have further questions or if you feel unsure, because the pain in the Joya shoe does not improve, please contact a Joya retail partner you trust.
Measures to prevent knee pain
Soft-elastic shoes can work wonders, relieving the knee. Knee surgery is rarely necessary and should only be performed, if all other treatment options do not provide relief or if there is a risk that the knee problem will worsen.
Knee pain initially demands rest, the joints should no longer be overloaded. However, this is often impossible in modern society. Hard floors and roads, as well as rigid footwear cause dull blows to the joints with every step. That is exactly why it is recommended to consult Joya shoes for knee pain. The sole of the Joya shoe is made of a soft-elastic material. This allows the foot to sink in healthily and naturally and to cushion itself while walking. This brings back the joy of movement and provides an active training of the body. Through the Joya shoe muscles, tendons and joints are challenged in a natural way, which leads to a strengthening of the musculoskeletal system.

The right footwear
The orthopedist's tip in the area of everyday shoes is called "soft-elastic soles and low heels":
- Hard soles increase the load pressure on the knee joint.
- "Soft-elastic soles dampen the impact of the heel and also the impact pressure on the knee," says biomechanist Professor Ewald Hennig, University of Duisburg-Essen or apl. Prof. Dr. med. Christoph Anders, specialist in pathophysiology at the University Hospital of Jena.
- High heels increase the pressure on the kneecap, because the knee is slightly bent over for a longer period of time.
- Insoles can also help with malpositions (e.g. varus or valgus malalignment).
