    Ouch!

    Primal Fuel
    So, despite all the wonderful successes and healing, my knees are still not happy with me when I walk on uneven ground, and my balance still isn't all that great. Case in point: the past two weeks. Both Saturdays, I managed to wrench my right knee so it bent sideways (two Saturdays ago, it was gopher holes popping up out of nowhere, and the week after it was a skid on gravel), and it's been stiff and sore ever since. I do my best to exercise it, but bending it past a 90-degree angle Just Ain't Happening. And right now I have to be sitting down a lot to write the last draft of my dissertation prospectus, and it stiffens up like whoa ten minutes in.

    It's a huge distraction at a time when I can't afford a distraction. Anyone have any ideas for how to make it un-stiff and un-sore ASAP?
    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    Arnica gel will help it heal fast. Alternating heat and ice will help get the blood flowing faster.

    I have used the book The Knee Crisis Handbook with several clients & the results have been great.

    Have you ever tried a strict nightshade free trial? Seems to help many people with joint issues - myself included!

    I was going to say heat and ice as well. And perhaps you could consider changing your workstation to a standing one for a bit ... if that's doable?

    I've never tried it, but my brother SWEARS by foam rollers. Maybe worth a shot?

    Pool therapy. Pretty much just get in a pool and move around. It's super low impact resistance and helps promote good range of motion.
