Knee Problems

A lot of people will go through life suffering with joint pains. One joint that can cause you tremendous pain is the knee. There are multiple knee problems that someone can develop. If the front of your knee feels sore, particularly during exercise, you may have patellar tendonitis. This is an issue that affects many active people.



Tendonitis is a problem that comes about with repetition. If you’re constantly doing the same movements involving your knee, you could develop it. Runners are normally ones at risk because they’re constantly putting stress on their knees. The cure for tendonitis is rest. Stop putting stress on your knees and work on strengthening the surrounding leg muscles.

Nasal Problems

Another issue people suffer from involves their nose. I’m sure a lot of you have had a cold and hate the feeling of a blocked nose. Luckily, colds only last a few days, and our nasal passages are soon open and free. But, for many people, they suffer from a blocked nose all year round. If your nose always seems to be blocked, it may be down to an allergy. There are loads of airborne allergens that can affect your nose and make it blocked.

To fix this problem, you’ll need to take an allergy test. Once you’ve done that, you’ll find out what you’re allergic to. You can also take allergy medication and nasal steroids to help unblock your nose.

Back Problems

I’ve spoken about back problems before in a different post, so I shan’t go into great detail here. But, the bottom line is, loads of people suffer from a bad back. Either it’s their lower back or their upper back.

If you experience back pain, I recommend you see a physiotherapist. If you see a doctor, they’ll probably just refer you to one anyway. A physio will help you do corrective stretches and movements to ease the pain. Eventually, you can make the pain go away entirely.

Respiratory Problems

Many people will suffer from respiratory problems throughout their life. This refers to issues with breathing and your lungs. Commonly, people will complain about having trouble breathing, or they may be wheezing a lot. If this sounds like you, then you may have COPD. COPD is a group of lung diseases that cause problems with airflow to the lungs. It’s important you check all the COPD symptoms before you go to your doctor for advice. It’s a very common issue, and many older people may find they have it.

If you do have it, you should see a doctor and find the cause. There are many causes of this lung disease, smoking being one of the big ones. There are pills you can take to help rid you of the disease and steroids you can inhale too. It’s important that you get any lung problems sorted out as quickly as you can.
