I had an extensive knee operation about 4 months ago following a fall. My doctor has told me to take 2 Alleve pills twice a day to help with the pain. What are your thoughts on this? Is there a better alternative?
Alleve is an anti-inflammatory medication which damages the stomach lining in many people.
I prefer anti-inflammatories that do not cause stomach ache, gastritis and bleeding. These include
- MSM or its parent compound
A product you will soon be able to obtain through my website supplements, that is marvelous, is Primivia Relief, which contains a compound of Boswelia, curcumin, and quercetin. It gets tremendous results.
The other thing I would recommend is to get a therapeutic massage therapist to release the muscles around the knee (thigh and calf) that may be pulling on the knee. Your need for anti-inflammatories at four months post surgery may be helped by releasing the muscles that pull on the knee.
There are also frequency generators that have healing frequencies that may help.
Additionally, you might try getting into a spa with powerful jets that may release the muscles and provide healing water to the knee.
