Hello, Thank you for the question.
Health side effects that can occur to you depends on how often you have to go up and down these stairs and several other factors. Frequent going up and down stairs can cause overuse in your knee joint which can cause:
patellofemoral pain syndrome
iliotibial band syndrome
To prevent this of course you need to limit the activities that cause overuse of the knee joint; it might not be easy to remember your job. There are several things you can do:
make sure you rest your feet after work
You can apply cold / warm compresses to your knees after work
if you have excessive weight, please lose your weight to be more ideal
multiply the consumption of nutritious foods
avoid sports that can cause stress on both knees such as running or jumping
If you experience pain in your knee, make sure you immediately consult a doctor for further examination and treatment to prevent certain health complications
