You have been suffering from right or left knee pain for days. At the same time you notice that the affected knee is slightly thicker than the healthy knee. The ability to move is limited and especially the inside of the knee hurts when you walk.
Cause of pain in the knee: the ISG – blockade
Under the lumbar spine, the sacrum connects. This is connected to the right and left via a joint (iliosacral joint, ISG) with the iliac shovel. If there is a shift or canting of the bones, not only the sciatica, but also the adductor muscle of the thigh of the affected side may be reported.
He tenses and remains in this protective voltage. This muscle is located on the inside of the thigh and pulls down to the inside of the knee.
Symptom: Knee pain on the inside of the knee
Through the strained muscle, the tendons, with which this muscle is attached to the knee, constantly stretched and overstretched and it comes to the irritation of just these tendons. They are very sensitive to pressure and pain when standing and walking. Climbing stairs is extremely difficult due to the knee pain.
In the thighs you have the feeling of constant sore muscles on the affected inner side. At the same time, stooping is restricted and you only get to your feet with difficulty to put on a stocking. One leg feels shorter than the other.
Help Step 1 – Solve the ISG blockade
As described in one of my previous articles, lie on your back, raise your legs and swing your legs back and forth 20 times. This loosens the muscles in the lumbar area and in the pob area.
Now stretch out the left leg first. Swing with your right leg over the left leg so that you feel a stretch in the pectoral muscles of your right leg. Breathe deeply. Do the same with the other leg: Extend your right leg. Swing with your left leg over your right leg, swinging and exhaling again.
Repeat the exercise three times.
If the protective voltage in the pomaculature was not too high (caused by the pain in the sciatic nerve), the blockage in the ISG joint should be released.
Help Step 2 – Work on your knee and thighs
Obtain a commercially available pain gel and rub the inside of the knee with it twice a day to reduce the inflammation. Massage yourself the thigh above the knee to the groin and here especially the muscles on the inner thigh.
Once the ISG blockage is resolved, you will quickly notice that the soreness of the thigh disappears and you can go back to your knee without any pain.
Help Step 3 – The bandage of the knee
After self-treatment, bandage your knee with an elastic bandage to reduce swelling. This swelling (water retention) is the result of irritation and inflammation of the tendons. By applying the elastic bandage, the tissue is pressurized, the water is squeezed out and transported away through the lymphatic vessel system.
If the pain in the knee is not significantly reduced within two days, the inflammation may be so high that your doctor should provide you with a suitable medication. Perhaps the cause of the knee pain is elsewhere, so a medical examination is advised.
