There's a lot of truth in what you said as gluten can be one of the biggest problems with joint pain

A lot of aches and pains we get as we get older can be dietary.

Our bodies change as we get older and can be sensitive to certain foods.

I cut wheat out of my diet years ago and never looked back.

I had an ache in my today right hip for years that I thought was due to heavy squatting in the gym. It felt better after only two days of eliminating wheat.

very true, a lot of lower back pain problems can be caused by weak glutes for example, mine were, suffered for years, went to see a sports chiropractor and was given various excercises and after a few years working on it am now ok.
I always wonder how many guys suffer from aches and pains that they just put down to the advancing years when there is actually ways to fix them it's just whether you can be bothered I suppose

I broke my kneecap 12 years ago in a trials bike accident, luckily 99% of the time it doesnt affect me but ever since I could use it again it's always creaked when bending it. I hate to think what issues it's going to cause me in years to come!

Well i'm convinced that the Glucosomine Sulphate works but its not a quick fix, like I say ive been taking it for over fifteen years now, I do remember going to see my doctor a few years ago when I had been taking it and was still occasionally having problems and she suggested upping the dose to 1500mg ( I had been taking 1000mg a day up to that point ) and I have to say it made a difference to me, I cant say it would for you though, its best that you try and find out what it is that is causing your issues, it may be arthritis

For many years I struggled with my knee despite hospital appointments. They really didnt do anything really until I really got persistent with GP visits too. Eventually I got a scan which revealed a torn meniscus which was causing clicking and cracking therefore causing loss of balance and the knee would give way quite often causing me to fall. I used to work nights and quite a few times I had to ring in sick then Id go up to A&E simply to get it recorded down again and to pacify my works too because after getting out of bed Id just fall over. Such a loud crack at times itd make me feel sick. Had operation few years ago and now no problem.

I used to get a lot of problems with my right knee due to a motorcycle accident when I was younger, it eventually became both knees I would get issues with, clicking, puffiness which is basically water on the knee and is its way of trying to protect itself when it gets inflamed but can be very uncomfortable as it prevents you bending your knee fully, anyway about twenty years ago I had an MRI and was told it was basic wear and tear, I had an arthroscopy and some cartilage shaved off of the worst one but I started taking Glucosomine Sulphate (1500mgs daily) and a cod liver oil capsule over fifteen years ago now and I swear I rarely get issues with my knees these days and my job involves a lot of kneeling working under bars in pubs doing installs, I do get stiff if i'm in the same position for long periods of time but that is to be expected at 61, however I rarely get water on the knee which I would get regularly three or four times a year back then
Also as Fishie says tubigrip is good to support your knee if you are going through a particularly painful time but try not to get used to it as the muscles will start to rely on it, if I ever felt that my knees or a particular knee felt a bit weak I used to use a whole length of it doubled up and it gave me a lot more confidence to put weight on the knee, often whilst I was fishing and kneeling down low around in and out of the bivvvy

Depends what the problem is, you should get it checked out.
I've had loads of knee problems in the past few years, each new doctor, consultant, physio and even surgeons have said the best fix is to strengthen the quads.
Hasn't helped me in the slightest but I guess what's wrong with mine is complicated since none of the above can give me an answer

Cant remember the maker but freeze spray is good, also some compression tubigrip which supports the knee will help.

deep heat mate - can't beat it.

and it will keep the mozzies away too with the smell!

alternatively come fishing with me - if recent trips are an example of my catch rate, you won't need to get out of your chair nearly as often...
