Any recommendations to prevent knee hyperextension in someone constantly on their feet at work?

      Physical therapy helped me because she was able to show me specifically what I was doing wrong (because of my hypermobility) and train me to use the right muscles when I'm standing and walking. It's been a big help with my knee pain in particular. I'm guessing you could get a similar education online as well if PT isn't affordable for you. It's mainly been about taking my knees to 100% extension (how I used to stand) and learning from there that 90% is actually the safe amount for me, in addition to letting my thighs take a more active role in holding me upright. Hope that helps 💚

      I'd go with hinged knee braces, they only go to a certain angle before refusing to go further. If you can gett copper-infused, that'll help any knee pain as well. Something else you could use is kinesiology tape, it kinda tugs a little on your skin when you stretch too far and can be a reminder to fix your knee positions. Hope this helps ❤️

One recommendation is to ensure that the knees are not locked while standing. Flexing leg muscles and walking in place can also help get the blood flowing. Wearing compression socks may also be beneficial.
