Our poor old knees get a tough time of it, don’t they? So having a range of knee pain remedies to hand, can go some way to showing them the love and attention they deserve.
For such a small part of our body, our knees can suffer with a lot of problems, but given the amount of work they do ...on an average day, and just how complex they are, it is no wonder! Whether it is heading out on a 10-mile hike, or lowering us into a seat for a movie session, our knees are always playing their part.
So why do things go wrong? Well there are all sorts of parts keeping the knee working like the little biological engineering feat that it is – bones, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and fluid sacs called bursae. It is when something happens to any one of these parts, that movement is disrupted and it can hurt.
There are a lot of reasons one of the parts might go wrong, but some common reasons for knee pain are:
- Injury – muscle sprains and strains often caused by exercise; torn ligament or tendon; tendonitis between the kneecap and shin; or even a dislocated kneecap
- Medical conditions such as osteoarthritis
- Damage to the cartilage
When things go wrong, we want to do all we can to get our knees back on track and able to do their job with as little pain as possible.
Voltarol has a range of products that can act as a knee pain remedy, by providing pain relief, reducing inflammation, and promoting recovery, but it can be good to complement this with other actions that you put into place yourself.
