Eliminating knee pain when bending can be a simple straight forward fix if you follow 2 steps first and answer these 5 following questions…
In assessing knee pain when bending there are a couple of steps that need to be taken to insure we know how to deal with your knee. This of course is assuming that you are going to look at a natural holistic approach to addressing the pain that you’re experiencing.
The first thing that needs to happen is getting a diagnosis from a great orthopedic doctor to rule out anything that may be mechanically wrong in the knee like a meniscus tear or a torn ligament. The second is having an MRI to make sure you have total clarity in what you’re dealing with in your knee.
Once the results from the MRI come back and you get a green light from your doctor that nothing is broken or torn, you’re now ready to go and deal with this situation yourself.
At this point, now your know the only reason you feel knee pain when bending is because of the tiny little nerves in your knee the width of an eyelash, being squeezed sending a signal to your brain that you have knee pain.
Now we must look a little more closely at the tension pattern that is causing your knee pain when bending.
Ask yourself these following questions:
- Does your knee hurt when you have pressure on the leg?
- Does your knee hurt when you bend your leg just sitting in a chair?
- Do you feel knee pain when bending pushing off of your leg?
- Do you feel knee pain when bending while you step forward with your leg?
- Do you feel knee pain when bending and twisting? (Think like dancing, playing tennis or throwing a ball to first base)
The answer to each of these questions gives a distinctly different picture as to the type of tension pattern in the knee, the leg and the body.
Your body is made up of muscles, bones, tendons and ligaments that function just like a series of pulleys and levers in your body (aka tensigrity structure or biotensigrity). If your body tenses up to protect itself from pain or injury it moves the leverage point of this pulley and lever system in your body slightly off center. On an MRI everything is going to look “normal” however to you and your knee it’s going to feel stiff, tight, swollen, uncomfortable or you have knee pain when bending.
Your answers to the questions above is going to give us a clear picture as to the direction we need to work with the bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments to get them back lined up so your knee doesn’t bother you anymore. The cool part of lining everything back up is you’re going to know it immediately because your knee is going to begin to feel more comfortable and the knee pain when bending is going to begin to decrease.
Keeping up with this process and focusing on comfort over time continues to line up your body in a way that makes the pain disappear because pain can’t exist when your knee is comfortable.
