 Knee Pain and Self Care
By Jennifer Chu

A study was performed to describe the treatment of knee pain in older adults in primary care and to compare reported practice with published evidence. A semi-structured interview was performed of older adults with knee pain about their use of 26 interventions for knee pain.

201 adults were interviewed. A median of six interventions had been advised for each participant:

* heat and ice (84%) the most frequently advised

* followed by paracetamol (71%)

* compound opioid analgesics (59%)

* non-selective non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (59%).

* surgery

Three core treatments for knee pain consists of self care:

* written information (16%)

* exercise (46%)

* weight loss (39%)

Most core treatments had not been initiated before second-line interventions had been used, paracetamol being the exception. Referral to surgery was commonly initiated before more conservative options had been tried.

The conclusions were that interventions recommended as core treatment for knee pain in older adults were underused-in particular, exercise, weight loss and the provision of written information. There appeared to be early reliance on pharmacological treatments with underuse of non-pharmacological interventions in early treatment choices. Self care played an important role in the management of this condition.

The study provides clear evidence on the need to improve the delivery of core treatments for osteoarthritis and highlights the need to support and encourage self care.

With knee pain, all muscles crossing the knee, hip and the entire lower back has to be treated.  The treatment of choice is individual neuromuscular re-training to exercise muscles individually and performing an internal massage through neuromuscular junction (trigger point) stimulation.

Jennifer Chu, M.D. emeritus professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, pioneered eToims Twitch Relief Method that utilizes surface electrical stimulation to locate motor points (trigger points). The motor points are then stimulated to induce strong local muscle contractions, termed twitches. This results in reduced muscle pain and discomfort in the areas that were stimulated. The involved pain/discomfort-relieving mechanism is thought to include local muscle exercise and stretch effects.

eToims Soft Tissue Comfort Center® specializes in diagnosis and treatment which ends muscle discomfort and pain.
