Would you like to eliminate knee pain from running? Would you like to forever end Runners Knee. In medical terms, the knee injury is called chondromalacia of the patella and is also known as Patellofemoral pain syndrome.
Good news, no great news! The water cures protocol is the solution that can end the pain.
The pain most likely is the result of chronic unintentional dehydration. Dehydration allows the assault on the knee to cause damage.
The injury can come from your feet and thigh not working optimally. The end result is the knee being rubbed the wrong way resulting in the ultimate damage that causes the pain.
Knee pain from running can also result from running on an uneven surface such as the crown of a road. This makes one leg in effect, shorter which puts pressure on the knee.
The water plays a vital role in protecting all of our parts, moving or not.
The risk of injury can be reduced by correcting the fluid and electrolyte balance. Additionally, when the knee is over worked and does not get enough of the proper kinds of fluids, the pain is compounded. Without optimal hydration, in time, the cartilage wears down from the knee getting off track and starts rubbing. Instead of healing, it becomes painful.
But Wait! Simply drinking more fluids is not enough to stop knee pain from running.
If your knee does not get enough electrolytes to deliver the fluids to the cartilage, then you are at even greater risk. Water on its own tends to dehydrate us. Yes, water is slightly dehydrating.
How so? What happens when you have a drink of water. You may also soon feel the need to head to the bathroom. Too, think of what you are drinking. In some cases, chlorinated water, fluoride tainted water and who knows what else.
All of these tend to make the body more acidic, which makes it more susceptible for inflammation. Inflammation is the precursor to cellular damage and pain.
But how did your knee get off track in the first place to be rubbed in the wrong way and cause the damage?
Lack of water is again the problem. Muscles depend on hydration in addition to the blood that fills them to work properly. Only a slight dehydration of the thigh muscle can result in less strength. Add to this the decreased ability to detoxify the build up of things like lactic acid that are produced when running. It is a perfect storm inside your body to cause you to go down like a ship in a ocean. With all the water around the cells, there is not enough inside the cells.
Even though your back thigh muscles or ham strings may be more developed than the front or quadriceps, the properly hydrated muscle can usually maintain the body in proper alignment. With out proper hydration, the knee could be pulled to one side, resulting in abnormal rubbing and the resulting pain.
As an orthopedic nurse, it would not be balanced if I failed to include the need for good shoes too.
Our feet need both stability and support. This support is under, around and above the foot. Since we are all different, it may take a few tries at various running shoes to find the ones that will work best for you. Listen to your body, it rarely lies.
Lastly, there is one more aspect of the foot that seemingly we have no control over. That is the way we walk. If we turn our foot out too much or roll it in, we could be contributing to the damage that causes the pain.
Even though our muscles have a mind of their own, they can be tamed. It will take conscious effort for about 30 days to learn to run right. You can even practice when you are sitting or laying in bed. Simply practice in your head. This is actually more powerful than actually doing it. Be aware, you have to physically practice walking and running correctly to reprogram your brain to allow you to do if mentally.
Listen to your body and try to be smart in the way you run and treat your body. If you injure your knee, if you have knee pain from running, give it time to heal.
to potentate the healing if you are injured and to help prevent injury, start the water cures protocol.
You want the water in your cells. Think of how long does it take to get there from the time it leaves your glass.
On an empty stomach, the water can get to your blood and off to your cells in about 45 minutes. When you eat animal proteins, your stomach can take up to 6 hours to digest. Carbohydrates should be done in about 4 hours or less. Ideally, you do not want the water to dilute the food you ate.
Drink as soon as you awake. Then drink at least 45 minutes before you eat. The water you drink now can sustain you for the next four hours.
After eating, your next drink will be about 2 hours after your meal. Each time you drink the water, you also need to take the salt and dissolve it in your mouth.

Often is the result of chronic fluid and electrolyte imbalance.
Medical Treatments:Orthotics, braces, exercises and rarely surgery.
