How to Eliminate Knee Pain
The knee, despite being the largest and strongest joint in the body is highly susceptible to injury, degenerative changes and eventually chronic pain due to the tremendous amount of forces it absorbs day in and day out.
The most common source of knee pain in the general population is osteoarthritis where tiny cracks in the cartilage progress over time to “bone on bone” abrasion, triggering an inflammatory response. A more serious condition is rheumatoid arthritis, where the immune system attacks the lining of the knee joint called the synovium.
Other sources of knee pain include sprains and strains to the supporting ligaments — the ACL, PCL and collateral ligaments; and meniscal tears. Irritation to internal structures can result in fluid build up within the knee.
Those who are overweight are prone to getting knee pain sooner than those who are not. If this applies to you, a weight loss program can go a long way in reducing or eliminating your pain.
This video course demonstrates self-care techniques that can be used to treat and resolve early stage knee pain. It is imperative to take immediate action at the onset of any abnormal sign of knee problems, because once it gets to advanced stages, self care methods are less and less effective and corrective surgery is ultimately required.
