from an evolutionary standpoint, knee design is fucking awful.
if any jesus botherer tries to tell you their god exists on the basis of 'intelligent design' then ask them why such a creator did such a shit job of knees!?
point is, for what we try to do, in our sporting and hobby endeavours, our knees are profoundly incapable!
i have fekking awful knees; achy, crackley the whole deal. very concerning. i never did anything mega bad to them, such as injury or surgery... just simple wear and tear.
if anything, and in light of people recommending a good exercise regime, my gym work has probably been the main cause of knee pain. with their being 6 to 10 different muscles ligaments and tendons pulling to either extend of flex the knee joint, any imbalance in any of these, will result in rubbing and thus wearing of cartilage in the joint. this = inflammation = pain.
the remedy is therefore do not exercise; do not move! of course this is no good and so you have to metal up and deal with it! sucks for sure.
i have forked out for glucosamine and chondroitin in the past. and it seemed to work. you need to take it daily (but not as much as said in a previous post, because once the limit of about 1000mg daily is met, the rest is just pissed away down the toilet) for about 6 weeks before you see any benefit.
HOWEVER, the benefit is tiny and to be certain, to find out if i was realising true benefit and not just placebo i have since stopped taking glucosamine for about 6 weeks and i have not suffered for it.
also, this fashionable supplement to your diet, is largely made up of shark derivatives. SO DO NOT BUY THESE! cod liver oil maybe, but not glucosamine and chondroitin; it is BOGUS!
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
