Given that all elective surgery has been cancelled for the foreseeable future, we have decided to put together a few suggestions that can help our CKC patients manage their knee symptoms until we can get your surgery done.

Keep your weight under control

  • For males keep your body weight under 90kg
  • For females keep your body weight under 80kg
  • Remember that each kg we don’t carry around our waists is 5kg relief for our knees

Avoid

  • high-impact activities or activities such as heavy work in the garden
  • Repetitive activities that cause knee pain
  • Long walks/jogging/running
  • Slopes / hills / stairs
  • Narcotic pain killers as they are addictive and best avoided for knee pain

Consider regular use of

  • Panadol Osteo
  • Nurofen
  • Turmeric or
  • Fish oil

Maintain

  • Good thigh muscle strength & tone
  • Regular exercise program
  • Knee joint flexibility with gentle daily stretches

Exercise should involve:

  • Pilates
  • Yoga
  • Swimming or Hydro in your pool at home if you have one
  • Bike – exercise bike or trainer
  • Rower
  • Elliptical trainer

Use ice or heat to relieve pain
