GROOM AWAY YOUR KNEE PAIN
DO IT YOURSELF
Your knees have been hurting for years, but lately the pain is worse.
It keeps you grounded and restricts your activities.
You’ve consulted all kinds of specialists and you’ve tried all kinds of remedies.
You’re even considering an operation.
But wait, human grooming is out and it can free you from your pain without surgery, and at no cost.
FOLDS IN THE SKIN AND PAIN
Take a look at your knees and you’ll see that the skin that covers them is damaged.
Many folds and crusty patches are visible, but you can also observe several holes and depressions.
If you pass your nail along the folds and into the cavities, you’ll find that it can penetrate deeply into some of them.
Those deeper trenches form a grid of horizontal and vertical folds.
The worse spots are those where the folds meet; the fold crossings.
Some become very painful.
Diagonal folds may form between them.
These folds pull the skin right into the joint, so that some sections get crushed between the moving parts.
Your skin is entangled into the mechanism of the joint, and that’s what hurts.
FREEING YOUR SKIN WITH PRESSURE GROOMING
The only way to free the trapped skin and eliminate the pain is to use pressure strokes to crush the folds, with your nail or your fingertip.
To perform pressure strokes:
Press your nail into your skin,
Maintain the pressure for some time,
Release the pressure, and repeat,
It’s that simple!
PAINFUL SPOTS AND ACHING REGIONS
You use pressure strokes differently on painful spots than on aching regions.
For painful spots; Press your nail directly where it hurts and you’ll discover a structure of hardened skin, in the form of a bump, or a depression.
You want to crush this skin formation using short pressure strokes lasting 5 seconds or less.
Apply the strokes repeatedly on every part of the hardened skin until you flatten it.
Sometimes, you’ll feel that your nail is placed on a weak spot of the structure you’re crushing; Stay right where you are and lengthen your pressure stroke to over 30 seconds.
In the case of aching regions, you’ll notice that the skin is so tense it won’t stretch anymore when you flex your articulation.
The skin is hard to penetrate with your nail; so you’ll have to plow it repeatedly, until its elasticity is restored.
You want to cover the skin of the aching region with short pressure strokes.
Do this as often as you can until the skin regains its flexibility.
To speed up your grooming work; group up to four fingers together, and use both hands.
You may be fearful or worried of pressing your nail directly into your pain.
However, if you can reach your pain when you push your nail into the folds of your knees; that proves that the pain is in your skin and not beneath it.
The pain will subside after a few seconds of grooming.
Grooming your knees will enable you to walk without pain.
If your knees start hurting while you’re walking; simply stop, groom the pain away and keep on your activities.
LOCATING YOUR PAIN IN YOUR SKIN
To better understand your pain; put a mark on your knees with a marker on every spot where you feel pain.
Carry a marker with you when you go out, so you can put the marks as soon as you feel the pain.
Refresh your marks every day, to check if your pain comes from exactly the same points.
Keep on doing this for several days, until you’ve identified all your painful spots.
Every point that you mark is a fold crossing; the place where two folds meet.
If several marks form a line; they’re on the same fold.
When you reduce the tension in your skin by applying pressure strokes on it; you’ll feel the pain decrease in the following hours and days.
If you keep on grooming your knees; the pain can be removed completely.
Make it a habit of grooming several times a day, but for short periods.
Apply all the pressure you can on your nail, without hurting yourself.
If the nail marks don’t fade away or if blood appears; you’re putting too much pressure.
Stop working there until it heals.
The problems you have with your knees may originate from bad body positions or from overweight.
You’ll get nowhere, if you don’t address those issues.
The grooming techniques described here can be applied to any other place on your body where you feel pain.
