Curafen Review

by Emily Jacob (2019-04-09)

After my ACL reconstruction surgery, Curafen I went to physical therapy and for all intents and purposes everything went "well." At the end of the 8 weeks my left leg was as strong as my right leg yet I still had lots of pain, tension, and discomfort in my knee. I did the usual, leg extensions, leg curls, leg raises, and step ups to build up the strength in my legs and this, to a degree, was beneficial however it was not the "big picture." In actuality when moving in real life you rarely get up in a linear fashion. There is regular "dynamic movement" - getting up and pushing to the side at the same time. An example would be like getting out of a car. So the exercises I did at the PTs made my leg stronger yet it was not practical for me to function in my life without the pain, tension, and discomfort in my knee Building practical or dynamic strength is key for you to get over your knee pain not only physically, also mentally to rid yourself of the fear of certain movements. So dynamic strength must be slow and controlled to re-educate your nervous system. Your nervous system must understand that your knee is strong enough to handle the weight of your body and not give out anymore. You will know when you "arrive" at this place because your body will not fear injuring your knee anymore. Bill sustained a severe knee injury over ten years ago that required reconstructive surgery on his left knee. This experience led him on a path to figure out how to relieve the pain, tension, and discomfort in his knee as well as the rest of his body resulting from the knee injury and the subsequent surgery. He now teaches others how to relieve knee pain for themselves in their own bodies through education about water, nutrition, exercises, stretching, and breathing. What is Plantar Fasciitis Do you have stabbing, burning heel pain When you get out of bed or out of your car is your foot achy and painful to walk on If yes, you may be suffering from Plantar Fasciitis. Plantar Fasciitis is caused by inflammation of your plantar fascia, a band of tissue that supports your arch. It can arise for various reasons including improper shoe gear, overuse, or even your foot type. Anything that causes increased stress on the arch supporting ligament will cause this debilitating pain.
