    Ouch!

    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?

    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.
