Simple Knee Maintenance

Thanks to Angela who sent me the following tips. It is most timely for of late I have been experiencing knee problems after I did a 20 minute brisk workout on the Step Machine last week. Thankfully, a friend returned from Melbourne a few days earlier to attend her son's graduation and gave me emu oil, emu ointment and emu cream - for my knee and joint pains. I just have to accept the fact that I am no longer young even if I am still young at heart. Try this workout and may all who need knee maintenance experience benefits from the exercise. I have edited it briefly as I suspect it was a Google translation or something along those lines.

Simple Knee Maintenance

After you have reached a certain age, it is common that you start to feel pain, less flexible or some kind of cracking noise on your knees. All you need is 10 minutes of your time daily to keep your knees healthy.

In fact, problems may surface when you are suddenly 'aware' of certain parts of your body. This did not happen by chance or coincidence, unfortunately. You can think back of the time when you were young. Did you ever have backache or pain in the neck? Did you feel pain in your shoulders or elbows? Did you ever experience weakness on your limbs? Your answers are probably "no".

Why do you have these feelings? Basically, it is because the blood flow (and chi flow along the meridians) in your body is either no longer fluent or encounters some kind of blockage. The effect is similar to the blockage of underground sewage due to lack of maintenance.

Therefore, it is important to maintain a healthy system for smooth blood flow and chi flow.

To maintain your knees healthy, all you need is 10 minutes of time a day to do the following exercises:

1. Slap or massage the outer edge of the knees; (2 min.)
2. Slap or massage the inner edge of the knees; (2 min.)
3. Slap or massage the back (concave part) of the knees; (2 min.)
4. Slap or massage the knee caps (2 min.)
5. Kneel down to "walk" on your knees (2 min.)


Do this everyday before any exercise. If you cannot "walk" on your knees, you can slap or massage the back of your knees instead. Elders should not run. Instead, walk briskly. Running can hurt your knees further. If you ever go hiking, when walking downhill, you must put your weight evenly on the bottom of your feet. Never put weight on toes only as that can lead to knee injury.

It's better to lose our pride to the one we love, than to lose the one we love because of pride.
