Knee pain that seems to come from no where!

I’ve had a lot of questions about knee pain coming in recently, and as we’ve started this series on knee pain, I wanted to tell you about this question I got last week, which is a common problem I see people come into the clinic for. Got this question emailed to me last week by a “confused” reader of my newspaper articles suffering with knee pain… “Hey Jennifer, I’ve been suffering with knee pain in my right knee now for a few weeks. What I can’t put my finger on is what I did to make it start in the first place, and even more confusing is that it’s most painful when walking down the stairs, and only comes on 10 minutes into a run. Sometimes it aches, sometimes it feels tender and dull, but I don’t understand why I could run fine before and now I can’t without having to stop after 10 minutes. Can you help?” – Michelle, 47. There’s a good chance that what’s happening to Michelle is the same that’s happening to most people this time of year. It’s no surprise seeing as we’re now heading into the colder months.

As we head back into fall, I see a lot of people with knee pain who’ve been suffering since the summer, but didn’t want to get it taken care of until now. So let’s get started with 3 things you need to know about knee pain after the summer. Last week I was on the phone with one of our regular patients, Leslie. She’s 57 from South Bay and she said: “I was making the most of the good weather by visiting Watershed Park and walking around. I was fine when I got home, but then in the morning when I woke up, my knees had a dull aching pain. At first I thought “it’s just an aching knee, I’ve probably overdone it, it’s happened before”… But the pain got worse as the day went on, and it’s still bothering me. My knees ache when I walk and I’m finding it hard to go up and down the stairs.” Now, this isn’t uncommon, especially not when we’ve had some warm weather. And when you consider that 77% of people are more active during the summer, that’s a lot of knees that could potentially become sore. The thing is, many people will put up with bad knees for days,… Read More

Tips for chronic back pain that you may not know about!

Have YOU ever been told that chronic back pain is just one of those things that comes with your job, family, age and daily stress?

What’s more, if you’re NOT the one who’s suffering, but your husband, wife, partner, mother or father is, then please read on because I have some special information that may benefit you and them… It’s a shame that so many people think their only option is to “rest”, mask their pain with pills and hope that it just goes away… …Because as you may be experiencing, if you’ve suffered for longer than 14 days, something is wrong and there is a problem – and I want to help you by simply showing you all of the different options that are currently available to you – some of which are new, most are free, all are 100% natural and at least one of them you will have overlooked as most doctors don’t know of it, and many insurance companies… Read More
