Knee Pain - Remedies

Maintain healthy weight: If you’re overweight or obese, the first thing you need to do is reduce it with a proper workout and diet plan. Losing just five percent of your weight could significantly reduce the amount of stress and pressure exerted on your knee joints.

Cold and heat therapy: Acute pain in the knee can be relieved with cold therapy. Applying ice to the affected area not only reduced pain but also minimises swelling. For chronic pain, heat therapy would work better and help ease stiffness. But you need to discuss the frequency and intensity of these therapies with your doctor or physiotherapist.

Pain killer: For immediate relief, a topical painkiller in the form of spray or gel would be helpful if your knee pain is caused due to a recent injury.
Exercise: Strengthening exercises work on the stability function of your knee by making your knee muscles stronger. The best knee strengthening would be walking or jogging. Both involve the same kind of action – repeated movement of the muscles around the knee — but with a different intensities. Basically, exercise improves overall endurance or the ability of your knee to perform the do the same job over and over again.

Maintain a good posture: ‘Sitting in a particular posture for long hours can exert pressure on the knee joint. Those sitting in front of the computer should take frequent breaks in between. Those suffering from chronic knee pain should avoid sitting cross-legged and climbing stairs.

Try physiotherapy: Chronic knee pain can be reduced with the help of physiotherapy exercises. A physiotherapist would be able to design an exercise program that fits your individual ability level and teach you proper techniques to spare your joints. Occupational therapy can teach you how to reduce strain on your knees in your daily activities.

Diet: ‘A​s far as diet is concerned better to have high protein diet then having carbohydrates or fat proper maintenance of weight is key for avoiding knee pain. more

Waliaji,the indication for knee replacement surgery is severe pain in the knees even at rest ¬ able to stand &walk due to advanced degenerative changes in the knee joint.But we must try to understand why this happens & what all we can do to stop further degeneration &reverse it.Our lifestyle is very much responsible for it,If we are obese &lead a sedentary lifestyle then we cant help our-selves.Knee joint pain is not limited to changes in the knee joint,there is also weakness &tightness in the hip muscles,spinal&abdominals.So it is advisable to have a thorough assessment of your abdominals,spinal,hip,knees,ankle&feet.
So I would advise you to approach a good physiotherapist who can do your full assessment &plan a useful exercise regime for you.The exercises are very simple but you have to do them regularly to have benefit. more
