Can insoles prevent knee or back pain when squatting?
Asked 14 days ago
Hi, I've been weightlifting for a few months now and I've noticed that during squats, my knees and lower back hurt. I've talked to some other lifters and some suggested that I try using orthotics to help prevent pain. I'm wondering if anyone has tried this and if it actually works. I want to make sure I'm protecting my knees and back while still being able to continue my weightlifting routine. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Knee and back pain when squatting may occur if you carry more weight than you can bear and use the wrong posture. Insoles are helpful since they can help you maintain your proper alignment, aid efficient weight transfer, and maintain stability. Also, consider strengthening the muscles around the joints, warming up properly, and exercising within your limits.
