Alternative cream for joints

Recommended Posts

Guest Sporty Singh 123

VJKK VJKF,

just quick question. I am a semi professionall athlete for my local running club. Im a amritdhari  who regualary suffers from joint pain during long distance races and training. Recently, I started using a new external cream for my skin and joints which contains glucosamine, aloe vera, coconut oil and other healthy ingredients. . However after using it I found out that another ingredient within the cream called MSM contains a certain amount of shelfish amongst other normal ingredients. I am coming to the end of this small tub and want to ask sangat if theres any suggestions for any different types of knee pain creams? I prefer the creams instead of the tablets incase I internally consume anything which may  have meat or gelatine type ingredients.

Have you considered consulting a pharmacist? That would be the best thing to do. Also a visit to the the doctor, to see if there's any other treatment, or assessment needed.

bro MSM can be vegan too , you can get it in powder form and take orally, you can also use arnica cream/ointement  weleda does a massage balm which is great for aching mucles and bones .

Do you do any joint mobility and do you any cool down stretches or yoga?

This is going to sound really desi, but I have to massage my joints (knees, ankles, elbows, and shoulders) with badaam oil twice a week. I train hard - running and bodyweight exercises - so the oil massage just kills any lingering aches and pains I have. Then I have a very hot shower and get into bed. The next morning I'm as fresh as a daisy. Also, if you're getting pain in your knee from running, you might want to get your patella checked out. There's a commonly available strap that's available which alleviates the pressure on the knee when running. Another thing you might consider is your running style: are you a heel striker or a toe runner? This is stuff you most likely know.

You are right about the style of running.

 I used to be heel striker, I had to change to landing more on the mid-foot.

Same here. I had no idea about such issues. I suffered two serious knee injuries within the space of 6 weeks. I tried everything. Apparently I was a heel striker, so I switched to running on the balls of my feet, and it's been a year now since any issues with my knee.

use sesame oil it is very good for joints according to aryuveda. get organic (untoasted) sesame oil which doesnt smell much. the cheaper toasted one shouldn;t be used. You can warm it up and massage it onto the joints.

be careful of commercial creams etc as many have questionable ingredients and side effects, likewise regular use of painkillers

Ensure your diet is healthy (raw milk,organic unprocessed food) and that you are doing the correct warm ups, resting enough etc. (it may just be overuse/wear and tear)

Basically many factors are involved and you'll know what is the likely cause.

You can go to your GP but they'll likely not do anything meaningful unless there is some structural pathology that needs imaging and/ surgery. Even if there is some wear and tear in the joint (OA) they will just give you some generic 'advice' and painkillers which is not really going to sort out the problem- only mask it (if at all) + side effects. So speak to your peers, look online and try to treat it yourself holistically.

    • ।ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖ਼ਾਲਸਾ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫ਼ਤਹਿ।  Please read this article by Bhai Manvir singh ji. Very insightful and clears up a lot of confusion.  http://manvirsingh.blogspot.com/2015/11/different-views-on-meat-reflections-on.html?m=1 ਜਉ ਸਭ ਮਹਿ ਏਕੁ ਖੁਦਾਇ ਕਹਤ ਹਉ ਤਉ ਕਿਉ ਮੁਰਗੀ ਮਾਰੈ ||੧||
      “You say that the One Lord is in all, so why do you kill chickens? ||1||” (Prabhaatee Kabeer Ji, Ang 1350) Hukamnama of Guru Hargobind Ji found at Sri Harmandir Sahib, Patna Sahib (published in Hukamname, edited by Gandha Singh), which states:
    • @jkvlondon point taken. I can imagine that tbh. I've already conceded that in hindsight it was a silly thing to do, and I concede again that if I was there actually witnessing it, it most likely would be a different story. Tbh I have seen some cringe or super cheesy sh!t at Amritdhari Doli's. Though not like this. There will always remain a formality between them. I was referring particularly to the fake@ss things - the munde wale taking advantage of the girls side which still goes on albeit not as it did in the days of old. Even the seemingly strong minded folks back down when it comes to their kurms highly unreasonable behaviour. All I'm saying is that ik duje naal pyaar naal milna chaida, jidha bhen bharavan naal mili da. No side should act like the others aafsar and should have the right to speak out. Come to think of it, I was once at a wedding where the munde wale actually literally threw the women at the door out the way and barged in - I was there too because I was a little kid. It was not pleasant and dangerous af. Needless to say we demanded maafi and payment later.
