He currently owns a private practice (Strive2Move) in Warren, New Jersey and has experienced rapid growth as he is able to continually assist patients in reaching their goals.

In this Special Report on Stopping Knee Pain from interfering with your fit and active life style, I share with you some powerful principle and strategies you can make work for you. Some will work over time and others almost instantly.
They are in no particular order, but they all work. I know because it’s the same advice I give out almost every single day to my patients.
In fact, the classic patient that comes to my private practice has months, if not years of chronic knee pain that they have massaged and stretched, only to find out the pain is being generated and caused a totally different area!
Specifically, the five tips I am about to share with you may be just the advice you need to get that nagging pain to go away. As simple and easy as these tips are, they are certainly not as easy to put to work. Each involve being mindful and practice.
Additionally, even if one of these tips happens to help you very quickly (which I hope it does) understand that this is a LONG TERM strategy to keep you active and healthy for years to come. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how much better and healthier you will feel for reading and acting on the tips provided below.
One of the first places to look when your knee starts to bug you is your shoes. Many people end up in poor shoe choices that make their knee ache. With many people who walk around New York City, I find the best solution is to walk in comfortable shoes and bring your ‘fancy’ ones. Often, people who commute walk for miles each day and wear shoes that are simply not meant for walking.
If you sit for hours on end, your body will essential get stuck in that position. With the knees, many people run into trouble because their knees are stuck bent for long periods of time. When they go to stand up, it feels like they are trying to move a rusty hinge. In order to keep that hinge ‘greased’ movement is the key! I encourage everyone to set the timer on their computer or phone for 20F30 minutes and make sure that they at least stand up. Extra credit would be to get moving and take a short, brisk walk.
Your calf muscles run down the back of your knees all the way to your ankles. Most people do not realize how interFrelated knee pain and calf tightness can be. If you are someone who is always tight, your calf tightness may be contributing because your knee isn’t getting the range of motion it needs. Because the calf runs from the knee to the ankle, make sure you have the right stretches in place so that both joints are functioning optimally.
Yes, I know our #1 tip was concerning footwear but this should just show you how important this really is! When the summer months come, it’s no coincidence that more knee injuries walk into my clinic. Understand that flipFflops are the worst for knee pain. Without knowing it, walking or gait mechanics change with a flip flop and the wrong muscles do the wrong job. Many times, it’s the muscles that attach to the knee that cause the biggest problem. Suddenly the knee pain comes out of ‘noFwhere’ and you don’t know how to get it to go away!
There isn’t a faster way to END knee pain than by seeing a specialist who can check both movement patterns and functional exercise. This probably isn’t your GP or Orthopedist…rather it may just be your Chiropractor. If it’s truly a knee joint problem, there is nobody better at getting the joints loose and the muscles surrounding the knee firing properly. You can often leave a good chiropractor with less pain around the knee in 30 minutes. Many people do not realize that a GOOD chiropractor can treat knee pain, but I would argue chiropractors may be the best! If you can combine all these tips with good hands on, 1F1 care you will certainly get the best results possible!
So there you have it: five things that you can do TODAY to improve your knee pain. Obviously, there’s so much you can do and so much more to get into, but these are ones that are quick, easy, and can make a BIG difference. In the weeks ahead, I will be sending you even more tips and advice on how to restore your active and healthy lifestyle and will share with you just how someone like myself could help. I hope this is the beginning of a great, long term relationship where myself and my colleagues become a source of cutting edge health advice for you and make a real difference in your life.
