Namaskar knee pain is very, very common. It could be physical injury, inflammationor basically arthritic condition. As we growour body gets into an arthritic condition,more wear and tear and more problems but wereIntel don’t cause the problem. The problem is because of stress and tension. Parent here is a common management, if itgives you pain, then somewhere some otherreason is there. Maybe we it very often give injury here andthere while rushing and walking here and there. Or there is some inflammation because of manyother reason, water retention in body or otherorgans not functioning so well or generallyweight which is creating more problems. Pain could be mild. Pain could be moderate and with both thesethings it can be easily managed at home withyour own self, with your own effort. So hereare two remedies to overcome the pain. First, Asana to release the knee pain, youneed to strengthen your leg bustles to reducethe pressure on your knee and following anwe’ll do exactly this to reduce the face. First among the atom is has the pub AngusAsan. It could be done with one leg, both the legsand with different sides also so you can callit that has for the gustan twist variation. When you are lifting your right leg goingto the other side. Other Assens could be jestasin thalasson andHasan thalasson. When you do to reduce kneepad, you are supposedto keep both the feet firm on the ground,not raise on the toe and do the thalasson. That would be beautiful. Haasen is a relaxing posture and there isa rule in yoga that whenever you get any painin any point that point should be relaxedwell for relaxation for two days and thenextending of everything pain. Maybe the pain will not be there. But first relaxation for two days. And when you are relaxing, try to see thatyou give little warmth through that area tosee that you use hot water bag in that areaor you sit in Sun keeping your back in theSun. All that would help in relaxing and then youcan start strengthening your Musk. One must also know the kind of Arsenal whichyou should avoid completely. Avoid all thearsenals which involve bending of your knee. When you bend your knee, you are giving strainand stress to your body. And so avoid these arsenals totally. Here are those Arsenal than Vasastan as ascould be done if paid is little mild and doit for two minutes. Not more than that. Areas can be done by holding I instead ofD and it could be done nicely. Second point postural correction, How youcarry yourself, how you carry a posture wholeday definitely plays a very great significancein this problem of me. So here understand, do not sit for long withknee bent. When you are sitting on chair, your kneesare bent and so try and keep your legs up,elevate your legs, put them straight in frontof you little be above your hip level, andthat would help not melting your knee. Make sure that you are not sitting for long. You are walking every half an hour a littlebit clear and there, and then sitting anddoing the work. Most important is whether you are traveling,say example, in train or in car. Understand that you keep your feet in sucha position that you don’t waver. Don’t give weight on one leg. Both legs should have equal weight of yourbody. And when you are sitting in the car, justsee that instead of hanging your leg down,hold the other leg, which has no pain up sothat you can sit more at the level of eyethan on your back. And this is how you will help your knee. Preferably used Western toilet rather thanIndian toilet. Even in Western toilet. When the seat is low, that will cause morepain. So seat has to be little at it. An additional seat has to be put on a Westerntoilet so that you can sit easily and getup easily whenever you have to stand. Seeto it that your position is proper. Both legs have to be away. Preferably stand with two feet away. Both the foot should be away from each otherand really two feet away. Then standing would be better at just yourleg in such a way that your body’s weigthis equal on both the legs. That a position will not hurt your knee. Otherwise it is going to hurt her points. But the pain is there. What is required is hot pack as well as callback. When you use hot water bag on your joint,give warmth to your body, then it relaxesthe muscles at the lubricant increases thelubrication between two joints improves andthat helps in releasing the pain. So we should use hot water Bank or hot padanything to improve the circulation in thatregion. Cold package always reduces the inflammationand swelling. So there is a very strong rule that wheneveryou injure your joints after injury, immediatelyuse cold pack, not hot water back. Use coldpack because any arteries if they are butthey would clog and the swelling would reduce. But after one day after 24 hours, then startusing our quarterback. Above all, all these are the theories, butabove all, your body itself will tell youwhat suits your body later on with cold pack. Understand that don’t apply ice directly. It would be a shock for your skin and everything. Apply pack and that would be beautiful. Fourth point for knee pain, you should loseyour weight. Whatever weight you have, you may be thinand skinny also, but reduce a little bit moreweight to help your pain. When person has excess body weight, then thatgives a very, very heavy load on your knee. Nothing else is going to help you. You have to work on your weight. So have thattype of a lifestyle, that type of a diet tosee to it that slowly, slowly, slowly youare reducing your weight, not suddenly it’sgoing to create a problem in other organsof our body. To reduce weight. Person mustdo walking, person must do exercise and personmust be very much aware about the diet. See to it that whatever you eat, you eat onlylittle to sustain, not to fill your stomach. Eat only when you are hungry and eat littleto satiate your hunger, not to fill your stomach. So if you eat four times in a day little littlefood and eat between twice fruits and be verystrict with your hunger and the quantity offood, then you will definitely reduce yourweight. Success will go and your health will improve. Some dietary remedies are here. One must consume sufficient amount of fruitsand vegetables as they contain antioxidantand anti-inflammatory compounds. All thisis going to reduce the inflammation and sothe pain berries, Apple, peanuts, grapes andpomegranate should be there in your dailymeal. All these helps in fighting arthritis. Totallyavoid non vegetarian food. Again, avoid sugaryand salty food. Avoid processed foods. Thesereadily packets where preservatives are bothartificially colored flavoured things arethere. All these things are going to increase yourarthritic condition. Add more whole graine to your diet. For example, replace Brownrice instead of white rice. Brown rice andpounded rice. Parboil rice are far betterand you should make all the dishes of ricewith these things, not with Polish rice. Similarly, in weak products, totally avoidproducts made out of beta. So all these things like bread and all bakeryproducts, cakes and pastries. All these things could be avoided. In fact, let me tell you, Brown rice can reallyhelp in preventing joint issue. Avoid eating lentils every day. Rather havesprouts twice in a week. More lentils, more high protein food is goingto affect your joint. Avoid oil containingOmega six fatty acids like sunflower oil andeven vegetables. Able oil. So take rice Branoil. Take geese in small quantity and seethat your joint is properly lubricate. Anotheroil which is really good is olive oil. Consume that it is excelite anti-inflammatoryproperty. Six points Relax your Mind A stiff mind leadsto stiff joints directly connected. The moment you are angry, the moment you havevery rigid opinions. What happens?Muscles become tight. Joints come closer, more wear and tear ofjoint starts and more arthritic conditioncomes in. So be very, very clear. Whenever there is a paid in joints, the firstthing you should do is to relax your mind. Remove all the rigidity from your mind, removethe negativity from your mind and that itsaid would help you to overcome the pain. Knee joint pain has to be attended and reallyattended seriously.
