A Simple, Painless and Effective Solution for Knee Pain

Thursday 26 April 2012

So many women just learn to live with constant knee pain without seeking any help for it. They just accept it as part of growing old. However, ignoring knee pain doesn't make it go away, it only makes it worse.

Do you know that research has shown that if you walk more slowly (for any reason), then you will also live a significantly shorter life? Yes. In an article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2011, researchers found that 87% of men at age 75 who walked fast lived another 10 years, whereas those who walked slowest had only a 19% chance of surviving 10 years.

The knee cap (patella) is actually a bone. The ligaments and tendons surrounding the kneecap protect the knee and prevent knee injuries from occurring. Ligaments hold our bones together and also bind our bones to cartilage. Tendons connect muscles to bones. Cartilage is a tough but flexible tissue that covers the ends of our bones in our joints. The cartilage in our knees degenerate due to wear and tear of the joints, causing pain in the knee cap.

Why does your knee hurt?
  • A lot of daily walking, especially going up and down stairs cause the cartilage to wear out faster.
  • Being overweight also wears down the knee cap faster. 
  • Malformation of knee cap, where the bone rides too high or too low and may dislocate.
  • As women have a wider pelvis than men do, it places more stress on the knee joint, leading to the degeneration of the cartilage.
Not treating the knee pain is not a solution. Knee pain that is not addressed will only cause the person to become less active, which in turn, leads to a whole lot of other health problems. They may end up having to take the drastic action of a knee replacement operation.
