A patient came into the clinic last week limping due to knee pain and asked:
“I’ve had this knee pain for a few weeks now. I’m not sure what I’ve done to it, but I’ve tried taking medication and it just didn’t help. It seems that it only stops hurting when I sit down. Now I’m wearing a brace when I walk, but I can still feel the pain when I take the brace off. What else can I do to get rid of the pain?”

As you can see, “quick fixes” like painkillers, resting, and wearing supports aren’t what they seem and can have the potential to do more harm than good. When it comes to your joints, choose a long-term solution to pain free living instead.
