4 Ways To Get Knee Pain Relief

Knee Pain Relief

Knee pain is something very commonly seen in our Brisbane Acupuncture clinic. Oseto arthritis,knee sprains, etc are all very common. In this post we well discuss how to relieve knee pain using acupuncture points and acupressure along with other ways you can use to relieve knee pain. Below are 4 action easy steps you can take to start getting rid of knee pain:

1)Weight management: excessive weight causes extra stress on the joints and tendons of the knee. The best way to relieve pain is to relieve that pressure losing weight if you are overweight.

2) Omega 3 and Turmeric:. Fish oil, a supplement fish in omega-3 fatty acids, has a variety of benefits, from boosting cognitive function to protecting your heart. It may also provide benefits for your joints, especially your knees.

Turmeric is an old herbal remedy used for thousands of years in traditional medicine. It has warming properties and can aid in blood circulation to the muscles, ligaments and tendons of the knees as well.

3) Acupressure/ Acupuncture: There is a great point at the end of the elbow crease when you bend your arm called LI11. You can either go see an acupuncturist for treatment or you can try acupressure around that area by rubbing with your thumb in a circular motion slowly 30-60 per minute. This is a very effective point in alleviating many different kinds of knee pain. It works because the elbow is a perfect image of the knee and is able to improve blood circulation to the affected area.

4) Stabilize the joint: The best way to keep under control is the wear a knee brace or strap when doing any kind of strenuous exercise or activity. This keeps any injury from getting worse.

5) Zheng Gu Shui Liniment

Zheng Gu Shui is traditionally used in Chinese Medicine for sports injuries and helping strained muscles heal and is especially helpful for Tennis Elbow. The main ingredient in Zheng gu shui is pseudogensing and other good circulating herbs.When applied, Zheng Gu Shui stops the pain and quickly starts the healing process.For broken bones and fractures, it can actually speed the regeneration of broken bone tissue. That does not mean it is unnecessary to see a doctor (one should always seek medical attention for an injury), but applying the formula to an injury right away before seeing the doctor will help with the pain.
