In fact, there is a rise in the number of young people with knee pain. Knee pain can occur due to strenuous activities or prolonged inactivity.

Cold and Stiff Joints Can Be the Cause of Pain

Joint stiffness is the sensation of difficulty moving a joint or the apparent loss of range of motion of a joint. Joint stiffness often accompanies joint pain and/or swelling. Out knee joint tissues (muscles, ligaments, and tendons) are like rubber bands – a cold and brittle rubber band will snap, whereas a rubber band that is warm and flexible with stretch and return to its original shape. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the knee joint is vulnerable to cold, and when it becomes cold, blood circulation is affected, which may lead to arthritis.

 

Warming up the Knee Improves Circulation and Relieves Discomfort

In general, keeping warm makes us feel more relaxed and hence less likely to feel pain. The reason for this is that warm muscles, ligaments and tendons are longer and more supple. This is why we “warm up” before exercising to avoid injury, and apply hear to sore muscles to relieve discomfort. Warmth also encourages blood circulation which brings oxygen and nutrients to the tissues surrounding the knee joints, keeping the joints lubricated and flexible.
