Knee Pain Remedies
Cold therapy is the application of any form of treatment which is designed to reduce the temperature of the underlying tissues. This is effective for reducing pain in both acute (new) injuries as well as more chronic (long-term) problems
The use of a knee support can provide relief in cases of mild to moderate knee pain. Surrounding the knee joint in a material such as neoprene provides many of the benefits of heat therapy by keeping the joint warm and surrounding muscles flexible. Supporting the joint may also help to stabilise it and reduce twisting and lateral movements which may aggravate it
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is a form of electrotherapy which can be used by a patient in their own home to provide pain relief. It involves using two or four electrodes positioned around the knee. An electrical current is passed through the pads which affects the nerve endings, resulting in a tingling feeling in the joint. TENS works on the pain gate theory which means the tingling sensation blocks the pain sensation.
