Knee Pain: Cause vs Effect

Knee Pain: Cause vs Effect
 

adam.jpg


Knee pain has always been a big problem for human beings, especially as we age. But even younger people can experience achy knees typically from sports and accidents.

 

If you go to the doctor to check your painful knee, and it is not a surgical condition, he will usually give you a prescription for anti inflammatory and pain medication. If this doesn't work he may inject the knee with anti inflammatory drugs. If that doesn't work he may recommend physical therapy. The main focus is on the symptom... not the cause.


What they often don't realize is that the cause of the problem might be in the feet, the pelvis, or low back. These areas must be checked as well for proper balance and positioning. A twisted pelvis, for example, can lead to improper muscle tone in the thighs resulting in imbalanced pulling on the knees. Likewise, if the nerves from the low back are irritated, the areas serviced by those nerves, like leg muscle and the knee joint, may become inflamed and painful. 
 
Just using pills or injections may not correct the underlying cause of the condition. Doctors of chiropractic are specially trained to examine not only the knee joint itself, but also the feet, pelvis, and low back to see if they are properly balanced and functioning correctly. If you need additional care, we are always ready to refer if indicated. 
 
If you had a stone in your shoe, would you take a pill to get rid of the pain? Of course not... you would take off your shoe and get the stone out, right? The same should be true about most health conditions, like knee pain. Take care of the cause and the symptoms will usually disappear too.

Really Thaivisa, you are telling people to call a number if they have knee pain? You don't even specify whether it is a doctor, a rheumatologist, a physiotherapist they will be contacting! 

 

For those of us who have joint pain, could I suggest that you go to a real medical doctor and, if appropriate, get referral to a rheumatologist who will investigate the pain and provide a course of treatment.

 

By the way, if your knee is paining you similar to the way the person is experiencing in the picture, I suggest that it is not because of nerves in your back or a twisted pelvis!

Didn't I see a chainsaw in the ad?  Amputations quick & cheap. This is usually bursitis, oddly enough you get it going down stairs not up. Too vigorous walking on the first day is common. Strap it up, take it slow & easy, That will be Bt 10, we accept Visa...

I cure myself of knee pains. There are certain vegetables you must not eat because there are chemicals in these vegetables that cause or make the pain worst. Example, Chinese Radish(white in color) Cabbage, Tomatoes, cucumber and carrots. Also foods to avoid, Number One biggest enemy -  wheat flour, many people don't realize it or say it's nonsense , you only need to avoid eating wheat flour or anything from wheat for 2 weeks to see result- you will be glad you read this piece of news.

Beer is also a big cause of this pain. Why I don't know why I will not touch it any more.

If you look at the foods we eat, too much wheat flour stuffs and sugar. Yes, Sugar is also a big problem for knee pains. 500 grams of sugar last me about 5 months that's how much sugar I take. I put a little bit in my coffee because coffee is too bitter.

Meat, I have become almost 80 percent vegetarian only eat very little meat or seafoods.

Use Magnets to help relieve the pain. Yes MAGNET, many people think this is a load of hogwash . Well, if you find it works you no longer think it's hogwash.

Must get those powerful magnet, not those weak ones, those are for kids playing. Those powerful ones are available in hardware stores. You need to bandage them around the knees before you go to bed, or have your wife or someone to make a cloth bag that you could wrap round the knee . Use north, south opposite one another.

Within 2 months I am free from knee pains, and I follow strictly to the above in term of diet and using magnet if any small pain is experienced. 

Wondeful to be free from knee pains. Doctors cannot do much for you(unless surgery required), they can do many other cures but not knee pains. So don't waste your money and time on doctors.

Just do it yourself.

I agree with Madusa and am in my early 70's experiencing some knee pain but not so much since I made conscious upgrades of my lifestyle including being primarily vegetarian, eating organically, and also taking quite a few supplements like fish oil and liposomal vitamin C and more.   I also invented my own knee practice simply holding my knee in different positions and massaging at the same time.    Additionally, I get 2-hour massages weekly with someone very qualified and at other times, lay on my back and pretend I am bicycling slowly.    Also, I take Himalayan Pink Salt baths and drink the salt in water daily for all of its trace minerals.    So many things you can do if you simply choose to love and nurture your knees...and why wouldn't you?

Saint View Hospital has a sports med clinic. Anyone in Bangkok interested I will dig out the info. 

 

Tumeric from 7-Eleven is an anti inflammatory. . Cheaper from pharmacies.

Maybe but on the page referring to the article it is not flagged as an advertisement. 

 

I have several friends I jokingly refer to as chiroquacks. One has a nice Beverly Hills home paid for by customers from his Inglewood and 3 Los Angeles offices. 

 

I remember an old man diagnosed with as I recall prostate cancer. He was having it treated by a Chiroquack that gladly took his money until he died a couple months later. That quack should have his license revoked! 

 

I once went to another quack that gave me the same old speel as you we don't believe in masking pain with drugs, the quack showed me x rays claiming I needed to buy $100 worth of his vitamins as my spine was eroding. BS that was 30 years ago and my spine still has not eroded. 

 

After a serious Motorcycle accident I had a real doctor an osteopath DO I think he was. Explained the cycle of pain, spasms cause pain, which causes more spasms. He prescribed anti inflammatories and muscle relaxers to stop spasms. Worked great. I understand knee injections are not anti inflamitories but cortizone, which accelerates healing but causes more problems later. 

 

How about having your advertisement posted as an ad on the main page not by a lil red flag on a headline usually ignored as we already read it.

You also neglected that most lower back, hip and knee pain is often caused by obesity. How do you adjust the fat off a persons gut?

It is listed as a forum on the original page. Not as a yellowIsh ad like the insurance and real estate ADS
