9. Fenugreek Seeds

Fenugreek seeds can also be used to relieve knee pain due to their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Also, fenugreek seeds are warm in nature and considered very beneficial for those suffering from knee pain due to arthritis.

  • Soak one teaspoon of fenugreek seeds in filtered water overnight. In the morning, drain off the water and munch on the seeds. Do this daily for one or two weeks.
  • Roast and grind a handful of fenugreek seeds and store them in an airtight jar. Mix two teaspoons of this powder and add enough water to make a thick paste. Apply the paste on the affected knee area. Leave it on for 30 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. Use this remedy twice daily for a week.

10. Eucalyptus Oil

Eucalyptus oil has analgesic, or pain-relieving properties that help get rid of knee pain. The cooling sensation of this oil can even ease knee pain from arthritis.

A study published in the Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine journal indicates that even inhaling this essential oil may help reduce pain and inflammation after total knee replacement.

  1. Blend together five to seven drops each of eucalyptus oil and peppermint oil. Then, mix in two tablespoons of olive oil.
  2. Store the mixture in a dark glass bottle, away from direct sunlight.
  3. Rub this mixture onto your knees whenever they ache.
  4. Make sure to massage gently so that the oil penetrates deep into the skin.

Along with these remedies, you need to follow these preventive measures for faster recovery.

  • Try to lose extra body weight
  • Wear the right kind of shoes and sandals
  • Avoid wearing high heeled shoes
  • Avoid “knee-busting” activities
  • Take magnesium and omega-3 supplements on a regular basis
  • Go for a brisk walk-for 15 minutes daily
  • Do joint-targeted exercises under the guidance of an expert
  • Do not smoke, which slows healing
  • Drink more water to soften cartilage and keep yourself hydrated
  • Compress the knee with a knee brace or wrap
  • Keep your legs in an elevated position to reduce swelling and pain

If the knee pain is still there after one or two weeks, consult a doctor to find out the exact cause and treatment options.

  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
