If you have experienced a burning on the left or right side of your knee, you know that this type of pain is excruciating. Many have compared it to sticking a dagger into the knee joint.
What is generally going on in this situation is that your knee joint is pushing down on your meniscus, which is the knee’s shock absorber, and forcing it to squeeze out the sides of the knee. Just like if you were to put bubble gum between two bricks and press down, it can ooze out the sides. If there is excess tension in your knee, the meniscus will start to do the same thing and squeeze out the sides of your knee joint, causing the intense pain to emerge.
Many times this can cause the knee to feel unstable because that shock absorber that guided and cushioned the knee’s movements is dislocated. Fortunately for you, there is a pain free solution to this burning pain.
The first thing you need to do if you have this type of knee pain is to relax. If your knee is in a comfortable position and the tension is removed, the nerves in your knee will relax as well. The key here is to create space in your knee joint so that the meniscus can go back into its normal position. Once this happens, the relief is immediate.
I have had clients with the same burning pain and after I helped them create space in the knee and relax the joint, the pain was gone very quickly. One important ingredient in this method is to drink a lot of water. If you are properly hydrated, the knee will become lubricated, making it easier on the joint as well as the meniscus.
The stretches you need for this condition are presented in the video series called the “Comfort Zone”. For info on that click here Comfort Zone videos.
