The Zone practitioner will check your Zones to determine which are out of balance and in need of correction.

Here are some common connections with Zones and physical manifestations:

  • So, tell us, what symptoms are you experiencing?

  • Do you have some, or all of these?

Once your practitioner has identified and explained the issue you have, they will set about restoring function to any of the six systems that are imbalanced and allow your body to return to its normal function and health!

What Causes Knee Pain?... And Why is Your Knee Pain Not Getting Better?

If you’ve got knee pain, stiffness or an ache – it’s very tempting to think that it’s nothing, that it will go away on its own. Or, you might pass it off as having just over done it, or that it’s just a “ache” or a bit of stiffness that “everyone” your age suffers from…

There’s no obvious reason why it happened – but it doesn’t seem to be shifting and its been there a good while now.

If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone – and we hear this type of thing all the time. In fact, long term knee pain is one of THE most common problems that we see in The Health Advantage.

What Is The Zone Protocol?

First established as ‘Zone Therapy’ in the 1930s by Dr. Thurman Fleet and evolving into the 'Zone Technique' in the 1990s under Dr. Peter Goldman, the Zone Protocol has recently been created by Dr. Jonathan Gleed. This new approach combines a musculoskeletal component with the original Zone principles of healing, bringing revolutionary advancements to the world of natural healing. Dr. Gleed also founded the ‘Zone Protocol Academy,’ which aims to educate other professionals about this innovative technique and its healing principles to help more people worldwide.

Simply put, the Zone Protocol is based on the concept that there are six Zones in the body. Disruptions in these Zones, whether emotional or physical, can cause various illnesses and discomforts. The development of this technique has led to significant advancements in practitioners' ability to facilitate healing, producing remarkable results for clients with diverse health concerns.

We understand that many people may not be familiar with Zone health and the Zone Protocol, as it is still in its pioneering stage. If you’d like to learn more, please get in touch with our expert team. We would be happy to explain how it works, discuss its benefits, and answer any of your questions.

Frequently Asked Questions About Knee Pain

What causes knee pain?

Knee pain can have various causes, including injuries (such as sprains or strains), overuse, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, meniscus tears, ligament injuries (such as ACL or MCL tears), bursitis, tendonitis, or underlying medical conditions.

How can I relieve knee pain at home?

There are several home remedies that can help relieve knee pain. These include resting and elevating the knee, applying ice or heat packs, using over-the-counter pain relievers, practicing gentle stretching exercises, wearing supportive shoes, and avoiding activities that aggravate the pain.

When should I seek medical attention for knee pain?

It's advisable to seek medical attention if knee pain is severe, persists or worsens over time, is accompanied by swelling, redness or warmth around the knee, causes difficulty in bearing weight or walking, or if it follows an injury or accident. A healthcare professional can evaluate the cause and provide appropriate treatment options.

What are some treatment options for knee pain?

Treatment options for knee pain may include physical therapy, pain medications, corticosteroid injections, knee braces or supports, orthotics, or in some cases, surgery. Lifestyle modifications, such as weight management and low-impact exercises, can also help alleviate symptoms.

Can exercise help with knee pain?

Yes, certain exercises can help with knee pain. Strengthening the muscles around the knee, particularly the quadriceps and hamstrings, can provide better support and stability. Low-impact exercises like swimming, cycling, or using an elliptical machine are often recommended. However, it's important to consult with a healthcare professional or a qualified physiotherapists for guidance on appropriate exercises.

Are there lifestyle changes that can help prevent knee pain?

Yes, adopting certain lifestyle changes can help prevent knee pain. Maintaining a healthy weight reduces stress on the knees. Engaging in regular exercise to strengthen the leg muscles, wearing appropriate footwear for physical activities, and practicing proper form during exercise or sports activities can also help prevent knee pain.

Can knee pain be a sign of a more serious condition?

In some cases, knee pain can be a symptom of a more serious underlying condition, such as a torn ligament, meniscus tear, or osteoarthritis. If the pain is severe, persists despite home remedies, or is accompanied by other concerning symptoms, it's important to seek medical attention for a proper diagnosis.

Should I avoid physical activity if I have knee pain?

It depends on the severity and cause of your knee pain. In some cases, modifying activities or temporarily avoiding high-impact exercises can be beneficial. However, complete inactivity or avoiding all physical activity is generally not recommended. Gentle exercises and low-impact activities can help maintain joint flexibility and strength.

Are there aids or devices that can help with knee pain?

Yes, there are aids and devices that can help with knee pain. Knee braces or supports can provide stability and relieve pressure on the knee joint. Orthotics or shoe inserts can help correct biomechanical imbalances that contribute to knee pain. It's best to consult with a healthcare professional or a specialist to determine the most appropriate device for your specific condition.

Can physiotherapy be beneficial for knee pain?

Yes, physiotherapy can be highly beneficial for knee pain. A physiotherapist can assess your condition, provide targeted exercises and stretches, and use modalities like ultrasound or electrical stimulation to reduce pain and improve mobility. They can also guide you in proper movement techniques to protect and strengthen the knee joint.

Please note that these FAQs provide general information and should not replace personalised advice from a qualified healthcare professional. It is important to consult with a trusted physiotherapist to assess your individual case and determine the most suitable treatment plan for your knee pain.
