Sore knee, huh? Have you tried icing it?

- Use one gallon food storage bags (such as Hefty® or Ziploc®).
- Add 1 cup of rubbing alcohol (70% isopropyl alcohol)
- Add 3 cups of water
- Add a small amount of food coloring if desired
- Evacuate all the air from the bags before freezing
- Place in the freezer. Initial freezing will take 5-6 hours

Lying Knee Extension: Move the towel to under your lower thigh. Straighten the knee and lift your foot off the bed. Hold for 7 seconds then lower your foot to the bed. Repeat 10 times.

I’m Not Old I Just Need Some WD-40

Arthritis may cause patients to feel symptoms such as pain, loss of motion, grinding or deformity. If these conditions cannot be managed well enough with conservative measures, then knee replacement surgery may be indicated.

Eulogy to a Knee

I think that I shall never see a joint as complex as my knee
For years it helped me run and play at many sports til I was gray
But then arthritis took its toll I found it painful just to stroll
Before the day was halfway spent my knee complained without relent
I had a surgeon look to see what it would take to be pain-free
The x-ray told him of my trial. My knee had walked its final mile
So nervously, my knee a wreck. Into a hospital I checked
The surgeon said his saw and knife would give me back my pain-free life. It really gave my heart a twinge
To think this loyal little hinge would soon be severed from its home
So that my limp could be long gone. So fare thee well old faithful knee For you I wrote this eulogy. No more painful bone on bone
My knee now glides on cobalt chrome!
