Knee Pain Cause
- Knee strain that might occur when a muscle or tendon is torn or stretched.
- Knee sprain is one or more stretched, partly torn, or completely torn knee ligaments. Ligaments are bands of rope-like tissue that connect bone to bone and make the knee stable. The knee has four main ligaments.
- Wear and tear of the cartilage and connective tissues
- Trauma of meniscus – a C-shaped piece of tough, rubbery cartilage that acts as a shock absorber between the shinbone and the thighbone. It can be torn with a sudden twist of the knee while bearing weight of the body on it.
- Trauma or loose patella – the kneecap
- Bursitis of the knee – the inflammation of a small fluid-filled sac (bursa) situated near your knee joint. Bursae reduce friction and cushion pressure points between the bones and the tendons.
Knee Pain Symptoms
The main symptom of the knee disfunction is pain. Pain says that inflammation is ongoing and your knee needs immediate help. If you have bursitis, fluid accumulation in the knee resulting in a swelling around or on the back of the knee is inevitable.
The pain presentation is different; it’s directly related to the location of the ligament, muscle or tendon that was injured. The knee can feel hot or cold on touch. Your action is to find a reputable acupuncturist to release the inflammation and relieve the pain.
Acupuncture for Knee Pain
In our clinic we apply Japanese medical diagnosis to find out which part of the knee gives you suffering. Along with palpation of the knee acupuncturist will palpate the reflex zones on your body related to organs and systems to check their involvement in the knee condition.
Based on the positive reflex zones, acupuncturist will apply the treatment protocol tailored to your body needs. The needles’ inserted in specific points will instantly remove the pain from the knee and from all the positive reflex zones found on your body.
“It’s a miracle!”, some patients say. But without deception you should understand that this miracle must be repeated once or twice a week in order to stop the process of inflammation.
Acupuncturist might offer you a prescription patent TCM herbal formula to speed up the process of recovery. This formula is not only anti-inflammatory herbal medicine, it also repairs the damage done to cartilage, bone, ligaments, muscles or tendons by wear and tear or injury. The formula has no side effects and it works for everyone.
After inflammation was stopped, there will be no pain in your knee anymore. Yet, you will need to make three weekly appointments to make sure that the new healthy neural pathways developed in your brain with the help of acupuncture will be strong enough, consolidated and keep your knee healthy.
According to our clinical experience every patient complained of knee problem was helped. Besides the acupuncturist’s experience and knowledge, the result will depend on your actions. You are supposed to be a part of the team-listen and follow the acupuncturist’s advices, have your treatments according to scheduled therapeutic plan, stop any exercises or harmful movements during the knee repairing mode. Be cooperative!
If your knee was injured, the pain will be in one knee only. It is not systemic health issue and should not involve problems of any organ or system in your body unless the health problems were pre-existing before this injury occurred. The most important during any injury is the mind and body balance. The organs and systems disharmonies involved in a case of both knees painful involve the condition of kidneys, liver and spleen. You can learn how to create and control your mind and body balance by reading the pages 19-49 and 61-64, about kidneys – on the pages 108-123, liver – on the pages 83-94, and spleen on the pages 95-107 in my book, Your MindBody Alliance & The Truth About Acupuncture.
Our clinical experience shows that people who are not educated in anatomy and physiology are not aware of how to preserve their health. The lack of knowledge and understanding how mind and body correlate leads people to feel out of control over their own health. Reading this book everyone becomes knowledgeable enough to withstand any body health problem and preserve one’s health.
