The following is a question I received from Jeffrey…

Good day Bill!

Thanks a lot and god bless…
Jeffrey

————————-

Jeffrey,

Thanks for your question.

Dealing with a knee sprain can be challenging especially when you want to get back to playing basketball right away! It is important to take it slowly coming back because you don’t want to re-injure your knee and make it worse. With that being said, I can suggest a program I developed that gets you out of pain and back in the game.

The new program called, Say No To Knee Replacement, is especially useful for sports injuries and knee sprains because it is a progressive system that is based on your level of pain on a daily basis.

I have created a series of 70 videos that start where you are with a pain level of 6 to 10. And then move you into more strength building when your pain level is reduced. It is a unique approach that will get you out of pain quickly.

You can look it over here >>> Say No To Knee Replacement.

What I would add in addition to the R.I.C.E. therapy is a homeopathic called Traumeel. It comes in both a sub lingual tablet and a gel/cream. I have used both simultaneously with my injuries with a tremendous amount of success. That is something I believe will speed up your recovery time.

Now this next piece I want to share with you is VERY VERY important, so pay extra close attention. Even though you got the x-ray back and there was nothing wrong with the bones in your knee there still may be issues with “soft tissue,” meaning tendons, ligaments, or cartilage that an x-ray is not necessarily going to pick up on.

So as you are walking you will want to watch for your knee “locking” or “giving out.” This is a sure sign that you are having problems with the attachments in the joint. It is definitely best to go see an orthopaedic doctor to check the knee out further to be safe.

If your knee continues to have issues with pain then let’s for a moment look at what pain is from a fundamental level.

Pain just means the nerves in your knee are being irritated somehow sending a signal to your brain that you have pain. I know this seems pretty basic however very important none the less. Many times when you suffer a knee sprain. Your knee is holding onto a tension pattern that is protecting it from getting injured further. This works for the injury, but not for the recovery.

So, it is important to take the pressure off of these nerves in your knee by moving your leg to a position of comfort. Of course, comfort is relative and going to be very different depending on the person and will continue to change depending on many factors such as diet, stress level, exercise, sleep, etc. The key is to find the position of comfort for your knee at this exact moment in time.

I go over the specifics of releasing tension and exactly what to eat and drink to best support recovery in my new program, Say No To Knee Replacement.

You can look it over here >>> Say No To Knee Replacement

Relieve the tension and take your knee to a position of comfort and the body knows what to do from there. You also must create the conditions to make your knee sprain heal as well. Think of the “shortest distance between two points is a straight line.”

Eating a proper diet, drinking the proper amount of water, incorporating the proper stretching, the right exercise, proper breathing, and sleep are all crucial to you getting over your knee sprain in the shortest time possible.

The more you setup the correct conditions the faster you will be able to get back on the basketball court…

Keep me posted as to how it goes!

Bill

P.S. If you haven’t already done so take my Knee Pain Assessment and watch the video for your situation and learn how to reduce your knee pain.

Hi,

My knee has been killing me lately I hurt it in basketball about a year ago and I saw a doctor but he said there is nothing wrong with it. Well I think he is wrong because there is pain but the only time it swelled was when the accident happened and it was a bigger girl and she ran into me from the side and and her knee went into mine. I have tried all kind of knee braces and my mom wont take me to a knee doctor again so I need your help.

2 Days ago I got up from the bed with little bit pain around the left kneecap. After doing the normal walking stuff I found swelling around knee cap and difficulty in bending my knee aft keeping in same position for some time. I strongly believe that I might slept in bed by keeping knee bend and leg in a wrong angle. I’m 27yrs old.I’m presently sailing on a ship.

Kindly advice me what to be done via email as well.

Hi, two days ago, i went to bend down and noticed a bit of pain in what seems to be behind my knee cap but more to the side. By the end of the day, I was in a fair amount of pain and had a hard time sleeping. Today my knee seems stiff and I can’t fully straighten it without extreme pain but I also can’t bend it fully without extreme pain.. somewhere in the middle seems ok. What is wrong with it? Please help…

Hello! I was walking out of school 2 days ago and I stepped in a crack in the sidewalk and twisted my knee. I thought I was fine. Then yesterday I got a pain on the side of my knee that kept growing worse. Last night I could barely get up and down the stairs. Today I can’t put weight on it while bending it (which makes walking really hard and painful). I can’t bend it entirely. I’ve followed the RICE method but it hasn’t helped my walking. Also, if I go to the doctor they’re going to take x-rays,… Read more »

Hi Sir, I’m 66 years old, five months ago I injured my right knee whilst playing badminton. During the game there was a cracking or popping sound at the back of my knee. In consequent my knee was swollen, stiffed and I limped. I went to see an orthopedics surgeon and he ordered an Xray be done on my knee. The latter revealed I have osteroarthritis . As the X-Ray was unable to detect any torn ligaments or meniscus he sent me to do MRI, and he result came back as follows: – Reduced joint space with prominent marginal osteophytes… Read more »

Hi.. I have twisted my knee a couple of times over the years.. I would feel the knee cap come off and go back into place. It would be very hard to walk after for weeks. It happened recently again and I am unable to bend or walk properly without the msucles tightening and feeling like it would pop out again. I did an mri and the result was that there was a near complete tear of medial patello-femoral retinaculum at femoral attachment. The doc recommended surgery aftet three months of physio.

I was diagnosed last week with Patella-Femoral knee pain after being in pain for a year. I have to get physiotherapy for this. Yesterday i went over on my right ankle and think I twisted my knee a bit as it’s been very painful ever since. Today it really hurts to put weigh on it. Should I see my doctor again or will pain ease on it’s own? I also have Fibromyalgia so I am concerned that this will cause a flare up.

4 weeks ago I twisted my knee playing basketball. I was able to walk off but it swelled and got stiff when I got home after rest and icing I feel a lot better but I still have a dull pain and if I plant my leg quickly it still gives out with my full weight. I walk and use the stairs fine. I also have 95% range of motion but there is still a little more fluid in there. Could this still be a sprain or could i have torn a ligament?

Hi there,

About a week ago I got taken down while playing soccer and when I landed I hyper-flexed my knee. Soon after I felt some pain in the back of my knee, but now I feel like I can’t exactly pin point where the pain is (if its in the back, on the inside…). I have no pain when I walk or straighten my knee, I mostly feel the pain when I bend my knee (it feels like stiffness).

If you have any idea what I did and what I should do to recover, that would be a huge help! Thanks!

Thank you for reaching out to us. I’m sorry to hear that your still experiencing pain. Have you tried The Comfort Zone Stretches yet? These are really good exercises to break up scar tissue and will help you create comfort in the knee joint (only the knee) by systematically working with the tiny movements in the knee that squeeze on the nerves the width of an eyelash letting you know you have knee pain. It’s a great place to start to get a feel for the program.

it is going to be a year since I got my knee twisted while playing basketball. At that time doctor gave some pain killers and gel. It took a month to reduce swelling but not pain. Now most of the time I have difficulty in walking and I can’t bend my knees for long time. Even after sitting on a chair for a long time the pain starts. Now I can’t even run and if I try to run I feel like I may fall down. But sometimes I feel no pain while walking.

So, please give me some advice

Hi Bill October 5th I randomly started feeling pain in my knee. Went to orthepedic he gave me a xray and mri. Nothing was broken or damaged just a lot of fluid showed in my mri. He drained out 75cc of fluid and gave me 4wks off work with physical therapy. I go back to see him today but I’m feeling the same amount of pain and my knee is swelled up just like it was before I got it drained. Its hard to go up stairs or bend knee. Pain is coming from the inside of my knee. He… Read more »

KneePainGuru – I notice for most replies you say ‘go ask your doctor’. But what about for people who can’t afford to see a doctor for a while? I have a sharp pain on the inside of my left knee (the part that touches the other knee when closing my legs) whenever I twist my leg a certain way or whenever I lay on my side with my legs and knees together. I sometimes will feel almost a sharp or bruised kind of pain, and when it was real bad it would refer an increasing deep aching/burning pain in the… Read more »

Hi, I sprained my knee about 3 weeks ago playing soccer. I was covering the ball and as i made a turn to the left somehow my foot got stuck in the grass and i heard my knee cracked. I remember i had a shooting pain and it went away. I was able to get up and walk normally, but the day after it got swollen and it hurted. Now the swolling has gone done, but the out side of my left knee kinda hurts i would say from 1-10 a 4 or 5. I dont know what could it… Read more »

I’ve been skiing for the last couple of days and today I had a fall and both knees hurt while I was lying in the snow. I probably shouldn’t have hit the slopes again but I did. It doesn’t hurt when I’m standing or walking or kneeling or sitting (or skiing) but it does when I try to stand up or go down stairs. Up stairs isn’t as bad. No swelling that I can see or feel and nothing tender upon touch except the inside of the left knee. Lying down, they feel weird. But not painful. Just… I can… Read more »

Last week I was playing soccer and made a tackle. The other girls foot and my foot both hit the ball at the same time but my knee twisted. It hurt at first but i was able to finish playing the game, thinking it was just an impact shock. It hurt that night, but only slightly when I put pressure on it. nothing major. The next day, i took Advil before the game, and that seemed to help. I could hardly feel the pain. But over the next few days, the pain grew more excessive, and Advil couldn’t block it… Read more »

Okay, so about a year ago I was in a soccer game and a player from the other team hit the outside of my knee and it made like a popping noise and my knee swelled up. I iced it and rested it and stayed off of it for a week, but I felt better so I went to play again for a school game. During the match I made a quick turn and it popped again. A medic checked it straight away and said that I had sprained my acl. It’s gotten a bit better but the inside of… Read more »

I’m 14 and about 2 weeks ago I was playing basketball and landed on my knee that night we went to the er and they had to wheel me into the x ray room they said nothing was broken and sent me to the orthopedic surgeon they said that it was cartilage more than likely and I needed an MRI but that’s 2000 dollars so its out of the question on this day I can easily walk and run but the pain is still there when I run it doesn’t even hurt that bad it’s just It’s really uncomfortable I’m… Read more »
