I'm not saying I never push the needle down, but I do try to make an effort to pull off stitches instead (I pull it off at a little bit of an angle so I actually feel a subtle little "pop" when it's pulled off successfully). I use my left hand to inch up the yarn a bit as I knit.

If you're really putting a lot of pressure on your index finger to push the needle down, you might want to relax a little while knitting. It sounds like your stitches might be a bit tight, requiring extra effort to push the needle down.
