Before knowing how to treat knee pain we first must make a few distinctions on terminology if you will. They are important distinctions though. From a legal stand point only doctors can treat knee pain.
Now your probably thinking. Well hell! I’m not a doctor so how am I going to get any help with my damn knee?
Take a breath, all hope is not lost my little knee pain sufferer.
Like I was talking about before, it’s a terminology thing. It can walk like a duck, talk like a duck but it’s called a chicken then everyone is happy. Got me?
So here we go!
It’s good we are all on the same page that I’m not showing you how to treat knee pain.
Let’s talk about what is the source of all knee pain or all pain for that matter. Your nervous system holds the key to this answer.
You see there’s tiny little nerves the width of an eyelash in your knee being squeezed sending a signal to your brain that you have knee pain. It would make sense that if we get the pressure off of these nerves the signal ceases to be sent to the brain that you have knee pain and the knee no longer hurts.
Pretty simple huh?
To be honest, getting out of knee pain doesn’t have to be more complicated that this, but it does require you to feel how to get out of pain.
The challenge is to continue to focus on getting the pressure off the nerves that are causing the pain because this pain tends to move. As long as you continue to focus on getting the pressure off of the nerves as the pain moves in a relatively short period of time the body gets and stays out of pain.
Unfortunately there aren’t many examples of how to do this.
Extensive study done Stephen M. Levin, M.D. on the concept of Biotensegrity which describes this process in much more detail.
Here’s the really cool part. You can study and get real heady about this process and know the origin and insertion of all the muscles, tendons, and ligaments while tracing the specific nerves that could possibly be impinged OR you can just learn how to feel how to get out of knee pain.
By the way you won’t even have to know how to treat knee pain to know how to do this! 😉

Coupled with comfort this combination creates the shortest distance between a life riddled with pain to a physical life fully mobile and self expressed.
“You can’t think your way out of pain. Pain is not rational and doesn’t care what you think. You must feel your way out of pain through comfort. Through the weeks, months and years of injury and compensation patterns built up in your body limiting your movement and making you feel older than your years.”

Can’t say how long I have suffered knee pain but it has been awhile. I learned today, after xrays were taken Friday, Nov. 9, 2018 that I have no cartilage in either knee. I am 5′ 11″, 255 lbs, 74 yrs old, Als9 have Diabetes II, COPD, Heart Failure and severe Psoriasis.
Hi there. I desperately need your advice. I had a knee injury which was a very bad fall about 10 years ago. I had a meniscal cyst in my left knee for about 5 years. It finally did burst. I am back in severe pain again. Do you think it could be another cyst growing back?
I don’t know, that would be a question to ask your doctor…
How did you know it finally did burst?
I fell in February of this year. Headfirst down stairs. I hit my knees. My left knee has a gash below the kneecap where I hit the edge of the stairs. I also hit my right knee but it’s in as much pain as the left. I’m hoping you can help with the pain. Nothing broken. I got an mri but I am waiting to see what the doctor says the end of August. Thanks for any help you can give me.
It has been one week since my knee pain began. I was running on an uneven surface- I am about 40 pounds overweight.
No immediate feeling of a “pop” nor any immediate specific event. It just started hurting afterwards. I was catching up so had to go fast, as I do not normally run.
I have iced ; and bandaged during my yoga classes.
The only and most painful is bearing weight. What does this symptom indicate.???
It indicates you need to go to the doctor and get a diagnosis…Then come back and let me know what that is. If nothing is broken or torn, then I’m your guy. If something is broken or torn then get it fixed and then I’m your guy…
My right knee gets stiff and some pain I’m a hair stylist workin on my feet 40 years and play football and I mean soccer lol for many years but no knee injury.
