Say goodbye to foot, knee and hip pain with these 5 exercises

 

Hip, foot or knee pain is one of the leading causes of chronic pain and millions of people around the world face these problems daily. The knees and hips are the largest joints in our body and they are responsible for the way we walk and stand. Pain in these areas, as well as in the lower back, shoulders and neck, could all come from the feet.

The pain can be treated with painkillers, minor surgical procedures, exercises or a combination of these. Fortunately, regular exercise is one of the most beneficial methods of relieving pain and accompanying symptoms.
