Knee Pain

Knee Pain, Knee Pain treatment, how to treat Knee Pain

While lifting a heavy object I just felt a pain in my right knee. I don't feel it when I'm seated or lying down but every time I walk I feel the pain, uggh. It's really inconvenient specially if your daily commute to work is by walking for a few blocks. Like most of ordinary people I don't have time to visit a doctor for such a minor inconvenience so I consult the web.

Knee pain is a general problem that can have a lot of causes such us acute injuries, medical conditions, body movements, and the common culprit is everyday wear and tear. Knee pains usually occurs while doing physical work, playing sports, lifting heavy stuffs, or other recreational activities.

The knee is the largest joint in the body, and the bones of the knee are separated by two menisci discs. The surface of the bones that are inside the knee joint is covered by articular cartilage. This cartilage absorbs shock and gives the moving joint a smooth surface.

The soft tissues around the front of the knee may become irritated that causes pain. Athletes frequently suffers with strain tendons that can cause knee pain. Other causes may include overuse, muscle imbalance and inadequate stretching. 

Here is how you can Prevent Knee Pain:
  • Stretch and do Warm-up before running or any other exercise. A 5-minute warm-up and a stretching exercise after is important. This will make joints flexible that can avoid being irritated. 
  • Always make sure that you have proper running form or lifting stance. Lean forward and keep your knees bent.
  • Eat less and keep your weight in check. Having a heavy body can put a lot of stress on your knees.
Treatment for knee pain you can do at home:
  • Rest and take a break from walking or any other strenuous exercise that can further exacerbate the pain. You can also place a small pillow under your knee.
  • Place ice or cold packs immediately to the affected knee to prevent and minimize swelling.
  • Avoid doing things that can cause swelling like alcoholic drinks and hot water.
  • Wrap the affected area with an elastic bandage to lessen swelling.
  • Keep the injured knee elevated above or within the level of your heart to help minimize swelling.
  • Massage the affected knee to elieve pain and encourage blood flow. Stop massaging if you experience pain.

Last Wednesday U.S. President was trending in social media because of pictures and videos of him in a gym working out during his trip to Poland. Mr. Obama was seen in 5-star Marriott hotel gym working his b*tt out using 2-pounds dumbbells.

Maybe the Secret Service allowed someone to take photos and videos of President Obama working out thinking that it will be good publicity like what Russian President Vladimir Putin workout video.

Brian Willioms of the NBC Nightly News was not amused he said that the president paid the price when his privacy was intruded.

"Let's put it this way, who among us would like to have the world critiquing our workout? But that's what happened on the World Wide Web today. Somebody snuck the video on there as millions weighed in on his moves and his exercise regimen."

However, Twitter has exploded with jokes and digs at Obama's expense. Even the late night shows took a dig at Obama's workout video among them are Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Live "Putincize" look at the videos below.
