Contrary to believe, most physical activity or sports aren’t bad for the knee, per se (in fact, they can actually help strengthen important muscles that support the knee, such as the quads, hamstrings, and glutes). The real problem is if you make a sudden change in frequency, duration, or intensity of your workouts.

I know I will get a lot of crap for saying this, but an example of this is joining a CrossFit gym and training hard every day, and increasing your physical activity dramatically and overnight.

One of the most common reasons for severe pain in this joint is inflammation due to advanced wear of the cartilage on the moving surfaces of the knee joint.

The inflammation from the worn particles of cartilage, if ignored, cause persistent swelling, stiffness, loss of range of movement and the deformity of osteoarthritis.

Knee pain can also come from outside the knee such as bursitis which is caused by inflammation of the bursa, a small fluid-filled sac, in front of the knee. It is usually intermittent and mild at first but can become persistent, severe and difficult to alleviate so prevention is key.

What Can You Do to Help?

Try this natural recipe that will strengthen ligaments and tendons. It is loaded with stuff you need like magnesium, silicon, bromelain and vitamin C – combination that has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and relieves pain.

Researchers have concluded that the health benefits of cinnamon can be obtained in the form of its pure bark, essential oils, in ground spice form (which is bark powder), or in extract form when its special phenolic compounds, flavonoids, and antioxidants are isolated.

These compounds make cinnamon one of the most beneficial spices on earth, giving it antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, anti-microbial, immunity-boosting, cancer and heart disease-protecting abilities.
