Knee Pain

The knee is unfortunately very susceptible to injury and can therefore affect individuals of any age. Activities such as playing sports, gardening or working in jobs that require kneeling on hard surfaces are common causes for knee injuries.

Below we shall discuss the most common causes for knee pain and look at how the OSMO Patch which is natural and drug free can help to relieve your pain.

Is knee pain affecting your work… exercise… or lifestyle?

Did you know that along with shoulder pain, knee pain would seem to account for one of the main causes of pain which directly impacts on the actual activities, work and lifestyle of many active individuals?

Before your knee injury were you generally an active person?

Individuals that are physically active or have jobs that require kneeling on hard surfaces are the most susceptible to knee pain caused by injury due to repetitive stress or impact to the knee. If you fall into this category then you already know that this can understandably be quite upsetting and frustrating as you were previously an active person. As some activities, jobs or sporting commitments may not be possible to give up or easily avoided, many people push through the pain… which will often result in further pain or a secondary injury.

Are you feeling frustrated and does it seem unfair that your injury occurred while participating in a healthy activity?

Sometimes it may seem unfair that your knee pain has occurred when you are otherwise a healthy and active individual; however it is often this very active nature that makes you susceptible to knee injury.

Did you realise that identifying if your knee pain is acute or chronic may actually help expedite your recovery?

When knee pain develops it can be classified as either ‘sudden and acute’ or ‘slow and chronic’. By identifying if your knee pain is acute or chronic you may also be able to develop the best strategy to expedite the recovery. Identifying what type of movements actually bring on or increase the intensity of the pain could also help to develop a strategy to assist with recovery! DOWNLOAD FREE REPORT

Often knee pain will not be noticeable unless you move your leg or knee in a certain direction or until you apply pressure or weight to the knee. Alternatively you could be experiencing ongoing intense knee pain even whilst resting. Either way, pain from a knee injury can be quite intense as you may unfortunately already know.

Common Causes of Knee Pain.

It can be said that most causes of knee pain fall into four main categories: tendon tear or inflammation (bursitis or tendinitis), instability, wear & tear or fracture.

1. Knee Bursitis

There are several small fluid filled sacs around the knee. They act as cushions between the bones and overlying soft tissues. These cushions help to reduce friction between the muscles and bones. Sudden impact or stress due to overuse will often cause these sacs to become inflamed and fill with fluid. This condition is known as knee bursitis and will often cause considerable pain. Bursitis knee pain is classified as either; Pes anserine Bursitis, Prepatellar Bursitis, Infrapatellar Bursitis or Suprapatellar Bursitis depending on the area of the knee that is affected.

2. Baker’s Cyst

A baker’s cyst, also known as a Popliteal Cyst occurs when a pouch of synovial fluid balloons out from the synovial joint at the back of the knee. A baker’s cyst can be very painful and can even rupture over time. For further information and to discover how the OSMO Patch can help relieve swelling and the associated pain due to a medically diagnosed baker’s cyst simply click on the link below.

3. Swollen Knee

A swollen knee due to fluid around the knee is normally the result of a soft tissue injury. Knee swelling can be very uncomfortable, painful and also restrict the movement of the knee itself. For further information and to discover how the OSMO Patch can help relieve swelling and the associated pain due to medically diagnosed soft tissue injuries in the knee simply click on the link below.

4. Knee Tendonitis

The tendons in the knee can undergo extreme loads and strain both sudden as well as over time. Due to wearing of tendons in this area knee tendonitis is a common injury. Tendonitis is normally quite painful and should not be ignored. For further information and to discover how the OSMO Patch can help relieve swelling and the associated pain due to medically diagnosed knee tendonitis simply click on the link below.

5. Knee Instability

Instability in the knee can cause movement in the knee cap. This condition usually occurs due to overuse, overweight, poor posture, or a past knee injury Treatment should normally include physical therapy and rehab and may depend on age as well as the underlying cause. In addition to strengthening exercises often cortisone injections and anti-inflammatory medication is used. The OSMO Patch is a great natural alternative to painful cortisone injections and anti-inflammatory medication.

6. Knee Wear & Tear

Knee pain may also be caused by wear & tear in the knee. This will commonly tend to cause irritation and inflammation leading to knee bursitis or a baker’s cyst. For further information and to discover how the OSMO Patch can help relieve swelling and the associated pain due to medically diagnosed wear & tear injuries such as knee bursitis or baker’s cyst simply click on the link below.

7. Knee fractures or broken bones

Fractures and breaks in the knee will usually cause extreme pain. You should consult your health care professional as soon as possible if you are experiencing this type of pain.

(Whilst knee pain is predominantly due to a soft tissue injury you should always consult a medical professional for a proper diagnosis to ensure there is not a more serious injury or underlying cause that may need immediate medical attention.)

Knee problems

Dear Toky, Some time ago I corresponded with you and was duly sent 10 patches to try for bursitis of the knee. As I am a Carmelite Nun, our life is dedicated to prayer so kneeling is rather important!!    I kept off the knee for a long time before trying the patches and found it […]

Dear Friends at MediWise, I had what a nurse practioner at St. Thomas’ Hospital in London called ‘that huge bursa’ on my right knee as a direct result of falling from the top of a railway staircase when the city was inundated with a snowfall and resulting ice.  I received your patches the day before […]

Bursitis in the hip

Hello, As much as I dislike the fact of getting older (I am sure most can empathise); the 50’s are very enjoyable. I have always been a very active person over the years, and when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, lots of time at the gym, swimming 1000M most days, plenty of walking […]

Knee problems

Dear Danniel, I fell 1.5 metres onto the road, landing on my patella. The pain was severe, and after two weeks on crutches I was left with a fluid-filled bursa the size of half a golf-ball on my knee. I already had a swelling just below my kneecap for five years, and another specialist had […]
