The knees are the largest joints in the body and millions of people suffer with knee pain.  There are many causes of knee pain- sports injuries, arthritis, infection, etc.  For a large percentage of people suffering with knee pain the number one thing they can do to help themselves is lose weight.  Every step we take transfers all of our upper-body weight through our knees down to the floor/ground.  Multiply this by thousands of steps per day and that translates into thousands of pounds of force on our knees every day.  Losing weight will lessen the forces transferred with every step…this means less pain.  Sound good?  Call us today for an appointment with Dr. Hartwig.  He will counsel you on exactly what to do for your condition.  503-235-7130
