Knee Cap Pain

Knee cap pain is most often experienced by the young between the ages of childhood and young adulthood. However, it can affect anyone. It is most often described as a pain in front of, inside or under the knee cap. It may also be felt on the sides of the knee cap or in back of the knee.

Your final decision on how to treat your pain should be made based on consultation with your doctor or a health care professional. It should be based on knowledge.

Kneecap pain may be eliminated for many with the Water Cures Protocol

We believe,like Dr. B, that knee cap pain is ultimately the result of chronic unintentional dehydration or in nursing terms, chronic fluid and electrolyte imbalance.

Know Your Knee

Your patella or your knee cap helps increase the leverage of your knee joint. It can allow or help you to increase your strength by about 30 percent.

Pain in the knee cap is most noticeable when...

• Walking stairs (particularly down stairs)
• Prolonged sitting
• Kneeling

Knee Cap Pain Could Be From....

Runner's Knee (Chondromalacia Patellae)

Perhaps the most common knee injury, medically called chondromalacia or runners knee. Runners knee is the result of irritation of the cartilage on the under-surface of the kneecap.

Housemaid's Knee (Prepatellar Bursitis)

Housemaid's Knee is swelling and inflammation on the front of the knee. Those who kneel with out protection repeatedly over extended periods are susceptible to this.

Unstable Kneecap (Patellar Subluxation)

If your knee does not fit right with your femur, you will have this. Only your doctor can tell if you have this.

Tip: If you are prone to any of these, the water cures protocol is being used to prevent these by many.

Kneecap Dislocation

Also known as patella dislocation, this is the result of the kneecap dislocating out of its grove. It must be put back.

Good News About Knee Cap Pain (Patella Pain)

Your knee cap pain is usually not serious and simple measures can help it heal. The pain is your friend as it signals that you need to do something to prevent further injury. It also tells you what you should not be doing if you want to have good knee health through the rest of your life.

What Causes Patella Pain

Patella of knee cap pain can be cause by...

  • Running Sports, especially on hard surfaces or with poor shoe quality

  • Jumping Sports

  • Excessive Kneeling or Squatting

  • Growth Spurts, adolescence growth of muscles and bones grow at different rates.

  • Knee Injury, a direct assault to the knee cap

  • Degenerative Changes in Adults and Micro Injuries.

Examples of these jobs include power lifting, weight lifting, track, soccer, basketball, volleyball, and the catcher in baseball.

The most important cause of knee pain, chronic and unintentional dehydration. Simply not having enough of the right kind of fluids and the electrolytes to transport those fluids to the joint.

Once present, patella pain is usually aggravated by sitting for extended periods of time, by walking stairs or by kneeling or squatting. When rising from a seated position the knee may feel very stiff and even buckle or collapse. During athletics the pain may become more intense, but frequently discomfort may present two to three hours after the end of athletics.

Tip: The Water Cures protocol works to eliminate pain in many circumstances.

Kneecap Dislocation

Dehydration (Why Dehydration?)

This is simple to understand. When we do certain exercise or sports such as running stairs, the stress on the knee can be up to eight times the weight of the young person. So, an overweight youth at 150 pounds running stairs could be putting over 1000 pounds of stress across the knee cap. If the pressure is not distributed equally, the risk of injury increases.

Water is the primary solution that provides the shock absorption and tissue protection in our body. Once depleted, we are at greater risk of the cumulative effects of assaults on our body. The weakest link will pay the price, in the case of the knee, the price is pain.

Treating Knee (Patella) Pain

It may take months for the pain to be eliminated. The most basic changes that can help is doing things differently. If you run, swim instead. If you are in a sport that involves jumping, try to avoid that action. Instead of squatting for your job, use a stool.

Most importantly,
Traditional treatments include conservative activity modification and strengthening exercises.

The majority of those who experience knee pain following the conservative treatments will eventually not have any more pain. This pain usually goes away by the early 20's.

Those who have pain as a result of injury, there is hope too. You will not be told this by doctors nor is there any high level studies to show that water cures can help. There are those who have tried and benefited from using water cures that can attest that it does indeed work, even when there was an injury.

If the treatment starts soon enough after the injury and healing starts, there is a possibility of no long term effects like arthritis.

A brace may be prescribed. Sometimes arch supports may be used to correct body alignment for those with flat feet.

How Come My Doctor Never Told Me This?

Frontiers of Knowledge

There are two reasons Doctors don't know or don't tell. First, doctors are not taught holistic knee cap pain treatments. Second, there is no money in this. The Medical Pharmaceutical complex is driven by profits, not necessarily curing. If you are cured, there is no continued profits. No profits, there are no jobs. It is that simple.

Just because there is not a study on water cures, it does not mean that it does not work.

Consider what I experienced as a student nurse at the start of my career in the 1990's. A patient refused to have his leg amputated. The gangrene was removed leaving just the white bones of his leg with exposed with some of the muscle and skin on the front and some on the back side of his leg. After several days, the bones started turning pink. A new skin tissue was growing over them. Actually it looked like mucous membrane which would eventually turn into skin. At the time this happened, science did not know that it would or even could happen.

He was told there was no hope and it was expected he would eventually die or loose his leg. Modern medicine was wrong. There was no study to say medicine was wrong. But medicine was wrong.

Water cures is just common sense. Few studies directly prove water cures works. Even so, water cures has worked for thousands. It can work with your

Our Grandparents Knew About Mixing 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)

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.
