Mobility shoes can help reduce knee pain

By Logan Lafferty

People who suffer from osteoarthritis of the knee can reduce significantly the strain on their knees if they wear mobility shoes, according to a study published April 10 in Arthritis and Rheumatism, a journal of the American College of Rheumatology….The chief cause of knee osteoarthritis is wear and tear. Those who have had knee injuries are most likely to develop it, although risk of developing it may be inherited. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic are studying whether sex differences at the cellular and molecular levels explain why women are more susceptible than men.
