Knee pain Homeopathic Treatment

Knee pain is one of the most common problems affecting millions of people.They feel pain knee hurt while walking.It is safe to say that most individuals have experienced knee pain at some point or the other, by the time they reach adulthood take it seriously. The severity of the ache depends on aspects such as the cause of the pain as well as the affected person's age and overall health status.When it comes to the knees, minor discomfort can sometimes turn into a major pain.

Significant forces act on the knee joint every day, as it's responsible for connecting the two longest mechanical levers in our bodies: the thigh and lower leg. So it's no surprise that knee problems represent a third of all doctor's visits for muscle and bone pain.

Knee joint is "boney" (i.e. not covered by thick muscle) and endures tremendous repetitive weight-bearing forces, it is particularly prone to trauma and injury. In particular, its hinge design is not conducive to twisting motions, and excessive torsion readily causes injury to ligaments and the boney cartilage surfaces. Structures often afflicted by damage and inflammation include the patella tendon (Jumper's knee), bursae, collateral and capsule ligaments, femoral and meniscus cartilage, and the periostium bone sheath - from direct blows to the bones.

There are numerous factors that could lead to knee pain in a person, some of which include injuries, medical diseases, age, obesity, structural abnormalities, lack of strength and limited muscle flexibility, to name a few.

Knee pain could either be acute or chronic. Acute knee pain, usually caused by a fall or an injury, comes on rather suddenly and lasts for a shorter period of time. On the other hand, chronic knee pain, usually caused by medical problems or obesity, refers to the pain that takes longer to become evident and lasts for a much longer duration. Bouts of knee pain that come and go, such as recurrent knee pain, are also usually referred to as chronic knee pain. In many cases, ignoring knee pain has catastrophic consequences.

Contrary to what many people believe, knee pain is not
only prevalent in the elderly, though it may be more common in them. This could be due to the fact that there are several knee pain causing diseases that mainly affect seniors, such as arthritis, gout, osteoporosis, patellar tendinitis and Osgood-Schlatter disease, to name a few. Nevertheless, many young men, women, teenagers and perhaps even children have been known to complain of mild to severe knee pain from time to time.

The knee is notorious in its ability to heal at a drawn-out pace. Steroid injections and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, while potent in suppressing inflammation and pain, are known to greatly hinder cartilage and joint connective tissue repair. These drugs ultimately cause weakening of the joints and a higher likelihood of subsequent injury and arthritic changes. Armed with that information, sufferers should consider therapies that support a return of structural integrity as well as pain-free function. Homeopathy can be the ticket to fast-track recoverywithout dependecy & side effect.

Location of Pain

Front of Knee: Pain over the front of the knee is most commonly related to the knee cap. Kneecap pain can be caused by several different problems.



Inside of Knee: Pain on the inside, or medial side, of the knee is commonly caused by medial meniscus tears, MCL injuries, and arthritis.



Outside of Knee: Pain on the outside of the knee, or lateral side, is commonly caused by lateral meniscus tears, LCL injuries, IT band tendonitis, and arthritis.



Back of Knee: Pain in the back of the knee can be due to the collection of fluid, called a Baker's Cyst.

  • Microscopic examination – Of joint fluid or synovial fluid

Symptoms of Knee pain

Knee pain on its own can be referred to as a symptom for other underlying health conditions. Based on the causes of the pain, the location and the severity of the knee pain are likely to change. At times, you may also notice accompanying symptoms along with the knee pain, which include:

• Inability to straighten the knee completely, which is usually referred to as “locking” of the knee


• Instability or weakness in the legs, especially the knee area 


• Stiffness and swelling around the knees 


• Crunching or popping noises that accompany knee movement 


• Redness around the knees, especially if the area feels warm to the touch 


These symptoms are fairly common in case of knee pain and while they should be treated appropriately, they are hardly a cause for concern. However, at times there may be more severe symptoms that accompany knee pain, which require immediate medical attention, as they are a sign of serious knee trouble. You need to visit your doctor right away, in case: 


• You suffer from high or moderate fever that is accompanied by severe pain, redness and tenderness in the knee 


• You cannot extend your knee completely or even flex it properly or as normal 


• You can’t bear to apply any pressure to the affected knee, which makes it difficult for you to walk 


• You fall while walking or even standing, because your knee just “gives out”


• You notice an obvious structural deformity in your leg or your knee 


• You see a significant amount of swelling in one or both knees.


Here are some of the common knee pain symptoms that are experienced by patients, and what these symptoms may mean about the cause of your knee pain.
