    Lately, I have noticed a slight pain on my knees walking down the stairs. It is not often but enough for me to notice that I am getting old (dislike this word). You have made me realised that I need to be more mindful of where the exact pain is in order to know the actual cause.
    Thanks for this article, Thabo.

    • Hi Sharon,
      You’re very welcome. Knee pain can indeed be tricky to deal with precisely because it can be hard to know the location from which it starts. I’m very glad that you found this post helpful.

  2. When I was in my mid- 30s, I tore the meniscus in one of my knees requiring surgery and physical therapy. Now, of course, I am older and have issues with osteoarthritis. As you have said in your article, there are things you can do to alleviate the pain in each circumstance. A lot of people walk around with knee issues who could benefit from knowing more about how to alleviate their symptoms.

    • Hi Anita,

      Your absolutely right. Knee pain is something that effects a lot of people because there are so many ways it can occur. This is why I decided to write a series that focuses on helping people to manage and treat their knee pain. Stay tuned for more on this issue. Thanks for checking in.

  3. When I was serving in the army for my nation, I suffered serious knee injuries. For many years, I could not climb stairs without pain. And when I take the public train system, usually there are no seats in the evenings. I had to stand for more than an hour. And when I arrived at the destination station, I have problems to walk. Most times, I have to bear with the pain, walk to an open area on the platform, and then slowly move my legs to eventually ease the pain. Then I can make my exit from the station.

    I wish I had an article like yours to help me manage my knee pain back then. Well, better late than never. The CBD solution sounds ideal. I must explore that. Thank you.
