Knee Pain: Why You Doing Exercises Doesn’t Always Ease Knee Pain.

Another email subscriber says they’ve just got to know:

= = = =

“Paul… every time I mention my knee pain to my GP (3x now), she just tells me to do some exercises.

First time I went she just gave me a sheet with some pictures on and they weren’t terribly easy to follow.

6 months passed and I’ve seen no improvement.

I went back and a different GP referred to me to NHS Physio. But all I got was a phone call and the same kind of exercises, sent through the post, a few days later.

I’m no better off now than when I first started asking around for help, some 8 months ago.

Why don’t exercise work like everyone tells me they should?

Is it me??????!!!!!

Or am I just doing them wrong?”

To cut a long story short, exercises don’t always work.

(Not like you think they do, anyways…)

And why not?

It’s actually a LOT like breaking out of a self fulfilling prophecy …

Herein, I’ll explain:

If you’re aged 45 +, or even just before, your knee joint has become worn and has stiffened up, and muscles have become weaker.

And it’s likely the exercises you’ve been given or are doing are ones that see you doing something like this:


“Sitting on a bed and pushing your knee down to straighten your leg and then doing another one which sees you lift your leg off that same bed and hold it in air, for about 10 seconds, 10 times per day…”


…Am I warm?

If I am, then that’s not a bad place to start.

The problem is that those exercises should be progressed and done along side ones that will improve the movement and strength of other vital parts of your body, as well.

And after a week of doing really simple leg exercises, they’ve got to be progressed according to your progress so that you’re doing ones which are more “functional”.

That means doing exercises that recreate what you’re actually going to be doing each day in your life… I.e moving up and down stairs, moving from a sitting to a standing position etc etc…

Because how many times in your life are you ever going to want to sit on a bed and push your knee into it, or off it?


But the problem is… actually GETTING to that stage where you can do more helpful functional exercises.

Your knee is likely to be too swollen and too painful to let you do anything more basic than what the NHS Physios have given you.

And that’s why the “HANDS-ON” treatment is so important
. (<== click to discover more...) In-fact, it's ESSENTIAL and NON optional if you want to get active quick. Because only when your knee pain begins to ease, are you able to do more functional exercises that will make a big difference. Reason why things like massage, stretching and even a touch of Acupuncture could be the best way forward for you. Let's break this knee problem of yours into simple steps: 1.) Let me find out exactly whats wrong 2.) Let me give you natural knee "pain relief" such as Physio, Massage and Acupuncture (...optional) 3.) I'll show you some very basic and pain fee exercises to start off on 4.) I'll Continue the pain relieving techniques 5.) I'll show and then you begin more advanced exercises such as Pilates, Yoga... and at the right time, I'll add in very SPECIFIC and highly functional knee exercises to make your knee stronger over time, whilst simultaneously making progress on returning to things that you find enjoyable, such as swimming and walking, or the likes.... How does that sound? A bit more like what you were hoping to discover at the NHS? When you come to see us, we'll show you the right exercises, give you easy to follow instructions and we'll mix and match different types that make you look AND feel healthy, quick. And that would make a difference, right? Getting healthy and ending knee pain -- it's not about just doing "any old exercises"... It's about doing exercises at the right time and in the right order -- *progressed safely* as your improvement allows. How can a GP do that from a "one off visit" or an NHS physio achieve it after just one phone call? Do it this way round that I'm proposing and you will even ENJOY doing exercises, because you'll not be in any pain doing them and you will see a difference quickly. At the same time, we'll be working hard for you to ease pain and swelling meaning you're going to get active again, even more quickly. Last thing from me on this: We're helping people like you all day long END the frustration that comes with being given "generic" advice on doing exercises by the NHS. (...and Internet). And we're able to start making progress with a simple telephone consultation that will let you discover why if you're aged 40+, we could be your BEST option, and what really makes us different from all the others:
