The more your body weighs, the more your joints have to work. If you are overweight, your knees will become weak due to the stress of carrying heavy weight. Plus, obesity increases the risk of knee or hip replacement.

If you are overweight or obese, consult your doctor or a registered dietitian to help you lose weight in a healthy, gradual manner. It will boost your knees’ stability and strength.


10. Anti-inflammatory Foods

  3. This was very helpful. My knee dislocated about 7 months ago, and almost did in a game of football just yesterday. I’m really kind of desperate for answers. I eat a Organic and Gluten Free diet, take Vitamin Code Supplements, and eat more healthy than anyone I know, but it doesn’t seem to be helping anymore. I’m only 13, so it didn’t seem to make sense that I would have so much trouble. I’ll try to take more Vitamin C capsules, and I’ve just started taking Calcium. Now we are going on the GAP’s diet to heal our guts, so after it I’ll be able to eat more free fresh stuff and actually get something out of it to help too. Thank you for the information! It was the most helpful so far! God Bless You!
