Knee sprains and other injuries can significantly reduce mobility or result in severe inflammation and pain. Due to the important function the knees play in walking, putting weight on the knee will only serve to further inflame the injury. If you are an athlete and have suffered a knee injury, it is important to have the injury treated before resuming sporting activities.
All too often, athletes attempt to work through the pain of an injured knee, opting for a quick fix to get them through the game. Doing so can result in permanent injury and an early retirement from athletics. It is better to miss a few games in order to receive physical therapy than face a life of mourning a career which never got off the ground.
