Thinking about trying it for my knee pain, looking for input from some other knee pain sufferers.
I was taking it when I broke my 2nd metacarpal last fall and my doc was shocked at how quick it healed...don't have bad knee pan though...
I like it.
Well it has been shown in studies to accelerate the rate of bone growth
tastes like dirt
It wouldn't matter to me if it tasted like black cock if it works.
Had zero results from it personally.
same. used it for a wrist injury.. but I dunno if its strictly or bone healing, or if it was suposed to work with soft tissue. thought it would help with my torn tendon, but it didnt seem to help at all.
Pretty much the same here.
My dad's using it for a long-term knee injury and pain.
It's only been 2 weeks, but he says he doesn't notice that much of a difference.
For knee pain I would do:
1. Ankle mobilizations (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxr9-IB0Rr4)
2. Hip mobility shit
3. Foam roll the IT band, quads, TFL, hip flexors and adductors
4. Tennis ball on the piriformis, calves and peroneals
5. Glute activation drills + single leg exercises (especially unsupported)
Both my parents are big believers of hyaluronic acid. Relieved them both of knee pain. With my dad it was so quick he initially thought it must be a placebo effect.
MAYBE YOU'RE TOOOOO ELITE!
There is no point in being alive if you can't do the deadlift.
I take Supercissus RX for my knee pains and it worked and is still working. For me it's a long term thing despite them being known to heal really fast. There's a lot of people who use it and post their logs in other forums, search it up.
How long have you been taking it for?
2 months (maybe I made it sound like really long term), but compared to what they claim as "in 12 days you will feel the healing effects..blah blah" it's long term to me. Supposedly Supercissus is more effective than cissus, I dunno. I take at least 4 pills a day. I dunno if I sprained a ligament or what in my right knee but after taking it I was able to get back to heavy squats pain free.
I agree, and my knee pain is hindering my deadlift progression.
I'm pretty damn convinced at this point that my pain is meniscal in origin, which I know cissus won't help anyway. I'm just trying all my options before having to get surgery.
Doing that religiously before bed every night for a few weeks straight this summer totally got rid of my right knee meniscal pain. Had gotten surgery on the meniscus in that knee a few years ago too. Foam rolling is godly.
