Home Remedies for Knee Pain

Home Remedies for Knee Pain

There are many reasons and different causes of knee pain. It is a common medical condition, especially among older adults and women. It is a natural health condition, which is mostly a result of constant wear and tear of the knee joint. OsteoArthritis is very common condition afflicting women.

Depending on the severity of pain, there are some tried and tested home-based remedies, which are both easy and effective to manage the knee pain and its symptoms. As per the basic Ayurveda principles, the other symptoms associated with knee pain such as stiffness, swelling, redness, numbness in the leg must be treated on a routine basis. These symptoms can get severe affecting the ability to even stand or walk if the pain aggravates.

So, it is crucial to do some self-care by trying these natural remedies at home:

The Ice Cubes Compress

If you thought that we only need a hot water bag to reduce the pain, then think again. Cold compress on the aching knee joint is one of the easiest and the most effective ways to manage the pain and swelling. It proves effective as the cold application compresses the blood vessels, restricting the blood flow to the affected area, thus reducing pain and swelling.
The cold compress must be done by wrapping the ice cubes in a thin towel and then applying it directly to the affected knee area. The process should ideally be carried out for up to 20 minutes.

The Hot-and-Cold Packs

A follow-up approach to the cold compress is the hot-and-cold therapy to relax the painful knee area. Start with applying a hot therapeutic gel pack on the affected knee. Continue it for up to 15 minutes and then, apply a mild to cold ice pack immediately. Continue with the ice pack for up to 15 minutes.
The hot and cold combination will loosen the muscles and visibly reduce the swelling. Put the knee in an elevated position for more flexibility.

The Mustard Oil Natural Cure

Mustard oil works miraculously to reduce pain and swelling of the knee. It has special antioxidants component (prominently the omega-3 fatty acids), which improve the blood circulation.
It is recommended to mix mustard oil with onion juice to get the best of the two most effective natural supplements. The anti-inflammatory properties of onions will reduce the pain and build your body’s Immunity. The onion plant has a sulphur compound called sulphites which immediately acts against pain. To apply, mix mustard oil and onion juice in equal portions. Blend it well and put it directly on the affected knee area.

Use Peppermint Essential Oil

A very useful approach to tackle the inflammation and swelling is through peppermint essential oil. The trick is to apply the oil exactly on the inflamed spots and then feel the difference in swelling and the discomfort. Peppermint has a cooling menthol effect which works well to reduce the heat from inflammation. The applied oil gets absorbed into your skin.

Anti-Inflammatory Herbs

Herbs such as turmeric, boswellia and ginger reduce inflammation. It is easy to introduce these herbs into your life since you can eat them raw or use them as an ingredient in cooking. To manage the knee pain, it is recommended to increase the consumption of these herbs in your daily diet.

Boswellia, also called Indian Frankincense, is a fragrant resin and is particularly effective in regulating a strong inflammatory response. From an Ayurvedic perspective, this herb has both heating and cooling effects. As a heating herb, it improves blood circulation and as a cooling herb, it brings down inflammation.

In the End!

While most of these natural remedies call for action on a daily basis, it is still recommended to visit an Expert like NuAyurveda. The professional and guided expertise can help you with an Ayurvedic diet chart specific to your requirements. Remember Ayurveda is a self-healing process and therefore, you need to be self-vigilant to make the complete effort worthwhile.
