Getting older has its own set of physical hazards, especially if you are a physically active person. I am a very active man and I enjoy trying to stay physically fit. I love to take long hikes and I also love to power walk on mountain bike trails near my house. I have been doing this for years and it helps to keep me in shape.
When you turn 50, you have to be careful about the pounding of your joints associated with running and jogging. I’m a very careful person when it comes to physical activity. I don’t make a lot of quick and what I call stupid movements. I’m afraid I might hear something snap in one of my joints.
Recently, I went on one of my power walks on the nearby mountain bike trails. I walked a brisk 4 miles that day and after I finished I felt a dull ache on the inside of my right knee. I didn’t pay it much attention and made the same walk the next day. Long story short, I’ve had an aching knee now for 2 months. I’ve tried everything. I an ice pack to it for the first couple of days. After that, I started applying heat to my knees and it is still bothering me. Since nothing seems to be working, I started doing some research and now I’m considering using a magnetic knee support. There seem to be a lot of people out there who swear by the healing power of magnets. What will it hurt if I give it a try? At this point, I’m willing to try anything. I just want my knee back to where it was 2 months ago.
I’ve also noticed that my sleeping habits may have something to do with my knee pain. When I wake up in the morning, my knees seem to ache until I have moved them around a little bit. I checked some places on the internet and there are a lot of people who use a knee support pillow. I think I’m also going to give one of these a try in my journey to be free of knee pain.
