Pain kneeling and pain when getting up can take you by
surprise. Or it could be a long-lasting condition that affects
your daily life.

If you experience a sudden difficulty kneeling down or using
your knees to get up from the floor, it is probably due to
overuse of the knee or an injury. But if the problems persist, it
could be an infection, tendon damage, or even
arthritis.

What can you do if you have trouble kneeling and getting up?
Are there any natural remedies that help with knee pain and
stiffness while kneeling?

Why Do You Have Trouble Kneeling and Getting Up?

It is common to experience problems with the knees as the
knee joint is particularly vulnerable to damage.

Your knee is a complex joint, connecting the thighbone,
shinbone, and kneecap with cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and
menisci. And, knees bear the full weight of you and the extra
force when you jump, run, or even walk. Many people
experience knee pain when kneeling, as this is often when the
knee joint is under most pressure.

You are more likely to experience knee pain as you get older, if
you are
overweight, or if you play a lot of sport which puts
pressure on your knees.


What Are Some Causes of Problems Kneeling and Getting Up?


Many people do not have painful knees when they are walking
or even running – but only experience knee pain when
kneeling, which makes it difficult to kneel and also difficult to
get up.

This can stem from many different causes.

Anterior knee pain ---pain felt around the front of your knee
--- is also called "patellofemoral pain syndrome" and it may be
caused by previous injuries, muscle weakness, knee overuse,
or a misalignment of your kneecaps. The pain tends to get
worse when squatting or kneeling.

Osteoarthritis can also cause stiffness and pain in the knees
that makes it harder to kneel. Sometimes the knee becomes
locked, including when you are kneeling on the floor.

Bursitis is a condition where kneeling for long periods of time
causes fluid to build up over the joint, making it hard to kneel
or bend the knee. Bursitis particularly affects people who kneel
a lot in their work or kneel in sports.  This condition is
sometimes also called “housemaid’s knee”.

A torn ligament or tendon causes pain that gets worse when
you try to bend the knee.

Gout is a type of arthritis caused by a build-up of the waste
product uric acid in the body, which results in crystals forming
in the knee joint that causes inflammation and pain – the pain
can be worse when bending the knee.

Is Having Trouble Kneeling a Serious Condition?






























In many cases, if you are having trouble kneeling you can treat
the condition yourself by resting the joint or treating it with ice
and compression.

But see your doctor if you cannot put any weight on the knee
at all, or you have severe pain when you try to bend it. If your
knee keeps giving way when you kneel, or you are unable to
fully bend it, see a doctor.

Also get medical advice if your knee or knees are red or
swollen, or you have pain or swelling in your calf when you
kneel, or you have a fever.

If You Have Trouble Getting Up, You Could Die Earlier

It actually may be better for you to try to get up from the floor
without kneeling – according to a recent study.

People who can get up from the floor without kneeling, using
one hand or no hands, are likely to live for longer according to
a 2012 study from the Clinimex-Exercise Medicine Clinic in Rio
de Janeiro.

If you need to get on your knees to get up, or you need help
rising, you are up to six times more likely to die early, experts
say. The researchers see this simple test as a way of predicting
future health by looking at current flexibility and muscle
strength.

If you can get up easily from the floor, and kneel easily, the
picture is brighter. But what about if you can’t do it easily? We
looked at remedies for the most common reasons for trouble
kneeling and getting up.

1.
Ease Osteoarthritis Symptoms to Kneel and Get Up More
Easily

Osteoarthritis is a common reason for knee pain and stiffness
that makes it hard to kneel and get up off the floor from
kneeling.

One reputed natural remedy for the symptoms of osteoarthritis
is glucosamine.

Many studies report its benefits – a 2001 study from the
University of Liege, Belgium looked at 212 people with
osteoarthritis of the knee over three years and found those
receiving glucosamine had reduced symptoms compared to
placebo.

2.
Extracts of Avocado and Soybeans for Treating
Osteoarthritis Kneeling Problems

Or you could try avocado/soybean unsaponifiables (ASUs) –
extracts of avocado and soybeans - as a treatment for
symptoms of osteoarthritis that include trouble kneeling and
getting up.

In 2001, scientists from Erasmus University Hospital of
Brussels, Belgium, looked at 260 people with arthritis of the
knee took either a placebo or avocado/soybean
unsaponifiables at 300mg or 600mg daily.

Over three months the people taking avocado/soybean
unsaponifiables experienced significantly improved arthritis
symptoms compared to placebo.

3.
Bursitis Can Cause Problems Kneeling

Bursae are fluid-filled sacs that are located in areas where
tendons, ligaments, and muscles could rub against bone,
providing a smooth cushioned surface. Bursae in the knee can
become inflamed, leading to bursitis, which is often caused by
repetitive pressure such as kneeling too much. In order to
prevent bursitis you can use knee pads to protect the knee
from injury, try exercises to strengthen the muscles around the
knee joint, and take lots of rest.

The herbal remedy "white willow" may help to relieve your
knee pain caused by bursitis.  White willow works about as well
as aspirin in relieving pain, according to a 2000 study from the
Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel.


4.
Do You Have Problems Kneeling Because You Have Gout?

Gout can cause intense pain in the affected joints and result in
a lack of flexibility when the joint affected is the knee joint.
Gout is caused by a build-up of uric acid.

In a 2005 study from Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, the
use of vitamin C at 500mg a day in people without gout
significantly reduced uric acid levels.

However, here's the catch. It is not certain that this means
vitamin C is directly useful for knee problems caused by uric
acid and gout.

5.
Trouble Kneeling Due to Tendonitis – Solve it with Massage

If you injure a tendon in the knee it can be difficult to kneel a
long time after the event. This is because tendons have a poor
blood supply so they recover very slowly from damage. You
may also experience pain in the knee when kneeling due to
tendonitis, inflammation in the tendon. A damaged tendon
needs plenty of rest, but also a form of massage called deep
transverse friction massage has shown promise for treating
damaged tendons and tendonitis, as revealed in a 2002 study
from the University of Ottawa in Canada.

6.
Treat Knee Problems with Turmeric

Curcumin and turmeric are often recommended for treating
osteoarthritis and other inflammatory conditions affecting the
knee as they act like anti-inflammatory drugs.

In a 2009 study from Mahidol University, Bangkok scientists
looked at the effectiveness and safety of using turmeric for
treating knee osteoarthritis. The scientists looked at 107 people
who took wither ibuprofen or turmeric supplements daily for
six weeks.

Both sets of people experienced a similar degree of
improvement in movement, and experts suggest that turmeric
could be more useful than ibuprofen due to it being kinder on
the stomach.

7.
Can Boswellia Help You Kneel More Easily?

In a 2003 study from Indira Gandhi Medical College, Nagpur,
India, 30 people suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee took
either boswellia or placebo over the course of eight weeks.

The results of the study showed that the herb boswellia
improved knee pain significantly compared to placebo, and also
improved knee mobility, making it easier to kneel and get up
from kneeling.
