Treatment for Osteoarthritis Knee Pain, Knee Injuries, and Knee Muscle Aches
Knee pain can be very common; the knee joint is comprised of ligaments, tendons, fluid-filled sacs, bones and cartilage that can all become inflamed, torn, bruised, as well as wear down due to age or arthritis.
Knee pain usually responds well to wraps and braces to take weight off the injured area and relieve pain, and sometimes physical therapy to help strengthen the injured area is also necessary. For more grievous knee injuries surgery may be recommended for tears that will not heal on their own.

A couple years ago I had an accident. My tibia bone broke and I had damaged the lower part of knee cap and cartilege as well. Now I am able to bend my right knee only upto 90 degrees. Will this remedy help me to regain my knee flexion and movement? I have a plate in the affected knee.
[YEA] I started taking Organic Raw ACV just this week and already have noticed that my knee pain has gone away. Just last week I was holding on to the banister for support when going up the stairs and today I realized I didn't need support, that the knee pain was gone. As for weight loss, nothing yet to report, but it's only been 4 days and my monthly friend is due any day now, so kind of hard to tell. I have noticed though a decrease in appetite and getting full a lot quicker. As for the taste of ACV, well I was hooked on GT Dave's Raw Kombucha tea for a while so it wasn't much of a taste difference switching to ACV. I now prefer ACV with water because it is not carbonated and it is just way cheaper than Kombucha tea. I mix 2 TBSP of ACV in 8oz water with 2 TBSP of agave nectar first thing in the morning and again at bed time. I might sneak in another serving while at work. Anyway, I read from some reviews that the weight loss is a gradual process, so don't expect it to happen over night. I would just be happy to lose the belly bloat, to be honest, which I happen to think is slowly taking place.
