Putting on shoes while sitting: Cross one foot over the opposite knee only if you can do so without pain in the hips/knees; keeping your back in your best alignment, lean forward from the hips and reach to tie shoes

When the Pain Persists

If your pain continues, talk to your healthcare provider about what other ways are available to manage your pain and to help with your daily living and overall quality of life. It is important that you consult with your healthcare worker to ensure that all possible reasons for the ongoing pain have been examined.
