  1. Heat two tablespoons of mustard oil.
  2. Fry one garlic clove (chopped) in it until it turns brown.
  3. Cool and strain the oil.
  4. Massage your aching knee with the lukewarm oil in circular motions.
  5. Cover the knee with plastic wrap and use warm towels to apply heat for a few minutes.
  6. Do this twice daily for about one or two weeks.

8. Epsom Salt

Epsom salt contains magnesium sulfate that has been shown to provide relief from knee pain. Magnesium works as a natural muscle relaxant that helps remove excess fluid from the tissues, in turn reducing inflammation, swelling and pain.

  1. Add one-half cup of Epsom salt to a hot bath and stir it well.
  2. Soak the affected knee in this warm solution for 15 minutes.
  3. Do this a few times a week until you get complete relief from the pain.

Note: This remedy is not recommended for those suffering from heart problems, high blood pressure or diabetes.

  1. I read thru these remedies and recently have re-injured my knee (extending from an old ACL injury). I have been applying the olive oil + ACV mix a couple times a day for the last 4 days. I’m still waiting for the results of my X-ray and MRI, but I have to say, I went from excruciating pain to the point where I couldn’t sleep last week, to being able to walk and do yard work with minimal pain. I still won’t tackle running, bike riding, or lifting with my legs just yet, since it still swells and gets sore from the injury, but whether it’s the placebo effect or legit, it’s really working for me.

  2. Thanks for sharing . It helps me to be informed with this useful article to help elderly who hardly walk due to knee pain
