Knee Injury Diagnosis

At some time in our lives, we will have knee pain and go for knee injury diagnosis. If the pain is the result of an injury, a medical diagnosis will be the choice of many. It is the diagnosis that will help you know the treatment options and make an informed choice of treatments.

Whether your pain just started because of an injury or you have had the pain for a long time, the doctor will do a full assessment of the knee.

Knee Injury Diagnosis

Before looking at the assessment, consider how the doctors diagnoses may fail.

Diagnoses Fail: How does the cartilage get hydrated? There are no blood vessels. If we become dehydrated, the body takes from the least necessary areas to provide for the most important areas. Do doctors consider hydration status when looking at knee injuries? Usually, not. Without hydration, the knee is at greater risk of injury. Hydration is the key to healing naturally.

Your Knee History

In addition to your health history, the doctor will want to know....

    Factors or incidents that could cause the pain such as...

  • location of the pain

  • the pain intensity, how bad on a scale of 1-10 (10 is worse)
  • duration of the pain
  • how the pain started
  • anything that makes the pain worse

Physical Exam

  • Looking for redness, swelling, any deformity, while still and moving.
  • Checking for swelling and tenderness,
  • Feel for blood flow, warmth or coolness.
  • Tip: Inflammation and swelling may be improved with the use of the Water Cures Protocol. Your doctor will probably not assess you for hydration status. Yet people who have self healed have indicated hydration was the key to faster healing.

  • Measure the range of motion.
  • Listen for sounds, like grinding, popping, clicking or other sounds.
  • Examine the Ligaments

    A number of tests including the Vulgus and Varus tests, Posterior Drawer Test, Lachman Test, Pivot Shift Test and the McMurray Test.

    The Good Knee

      A healthy knee will have:

    • natural strength
    • will not have any pain or tenderness when touched
    • will move and look like the other knee
    • will move and have the same ligament movements as the other knee
    • will not have any clicking, popping, grinding or other sounds when moved
    • toes will be pink and warm, nail beds will turn white when pressed and then turn pink again once released
    • there will be no numbness in the leg or foot
    • the knee will be properly hydrated and less likely to be injured because of following the water cures protocol.

    Tip: The knee health is dependent on hydration. Hydration is dependent on electrolytes as your cartilage has no blood vessels.

    The exam will help determine the extent of the knee damage. With this information, the doctor will identify what needs to be done to repair the injury.

    Knee Injury Diagnosis and the Water Cures Protocol

    The water cures protocol will not work if there is a tear or injury requiring surgical intervention to correct the damage.

    Even with knee injuries, the water cures protocol can help the healing and eliminate the pain in many cases. Speak to a holistic doctor or holistic nurse to see if the water cures will work for you and your knee pain.

    Following the water cures protocol will probably be the best way to prevent knee injury.

    Water Cures in the News


    Our Grandparents Knew About Hydration and Eating!
    It is amazing how so many things that are new to us were common knowledge in the past. One basic practice of the Water Cures protocol is to drink at least 30-45 minutes before and 2 1/2 hours after a meal. This is not a new thought however. Notice what a magazine from 1925 had to say...

    "Drink plenty of water two hours after each meal; drink none just before eating; and a small quantity if any at meal time. Do not take a bath until two hours after eating a meal, nor closer than one hour before eating. Drink a full glass of water both before and after the bath." (Golden Age, Sept. 9, 1925, pp. 784-785)

    The Great Salt Debate
    Here is the Science

    We are not promoting increased salt intake. We are suggesting taking salt in amounts appropriate to your bodies needs, based on water needs. Our needs are not one size fits all.

    Note: Do you have CHF or Kidney Disease? Then.....

    There is more to Water Cures than just salt and water. Diet, 50 to 80% raw food is best and exercise play an important part. And we believe the science is important too. Below is some of the research we found as to why Water Cures is the solution for better health.

    Water Cures is not for Everyone

    Listen to your body. Do not use this if you are under a doctors care. Do not stop taking medications without consulting your doctor. If you are on medications, consult your doctor if you start the Water Cures Protocol as it may change your needs.

    Heal Your Headache It Worked For Me

    Hi, my name is Sharon. The webmaster of this site is my nurse, my personal water coach and my husband.

    As this site was first being built, I had a headache and as usual took an Ibuprofen. Impatient for it to start working, I decided to try the Water Cures. I took a pinch of salt and a glass of water. Then I took a second pinch of salt and another glass of water. My headache was gone in less than 5 minutes.

    From my personal experience, it usually takes 30 to 45 minutes for Ibuprofen to work. Some have found it takes ibuprofen 24 minutes to start working.

    Yet on the Water Cures protocol, my headache was gone in 5 minutes.

    Its simple: give your body what it needs and your body will give you what you need, the ability to feel great.

    Water Cures was the solution for the elimination of my headache. It is what I will use from now on.

    Why not give it a try yourself.
