Welding knee pads – welders have to work in some of the most awkward places and very often in kneeling positions with both hands on the job. This causes pressure on the knee caps, cartilage, soft tissue and joints. Add to this the need to balance which can put more pressure on one knee than the other.
Knee protection – if you’re kneeling on a hard surface i.e. transferring the weight from your feet to your knees and you don’t use some type of barrier in between to absorb or disburse the weight then you can expect to experiences pain and or cause an injury. When we kneel on an uneven surface we are also chancing joint injuries. Anyone in industry who periodically or continuously needs to spend time on their knees e.g. with knee contact on rough or smooth hard surfaces should invest in knee pads. Remember with injured or just pain in your knees getting around is arduous – why did it to yourself. If you experience persistent knee pain or swelling, you should contact your doctor. Your doctor is likely to take an x-ray to rule out further damage to the knee.
Prepatellar bursitis can be diagnosed through a physical examination. This condition is treated conservatively. Treatment includes resting the affected knee and applying ice to it — three to four times per day for no more than 20 minutes at a time. You should also try to keep your leg elevated as much as possible. Your doctor may prescribe anti-inflammatory medications in order to help relieve the pain. If the pain and swelling persist, your doctor may opt to drain the bursa with a needle. If the pain and swelling become chronic, surgery can be performed to remove the bursa.
Prevention – use Knee pads
If you’re someone who regularly has to kneel then the best way to prevent prepatellar bursitis is to wear knee pads. Welding knee pads can provide an extra layer of padding between you and the floor which can help reduce the friction that occurs in your knees. You should also try to get up and move around in between jobs in order to stretch your legs. Try the latest Gel knee pads and experience the extraordinary level of comfort and protection provided. Knee injuries are way up in the top 5 when it comes to hours lost in industry and if you’re a contractor that can really hurt the back pocket.
