How This Traumatic Public Incident Led Me To Finally Erase Years Of Non-Stop, Stabbing Pain In My Knees & Regain My Independence And Freedom

“Help! Somebody get a doctor now!!”

My wife was screaming for help right next to me at the airport.

But I could barely hear her. All I could focus on was this sharp, shooting pain in my knees that was so intense that I was on the verge of losing consciousness… 

I’d had many episodes of knee pain in my life, but this time it was worse than anything I’d ever felt. It felt like someone planted a cold knife in my kneecap, and slowly rotated the blade in the bone to prolong the agony. At this moment, I wished I could just shut down my brain to put an end to this excruciating pain, but there was nothing I could do to escape from it. I felt trapped in my own tortured body.

All I felt was extreme pain, discomfort and humiliation as everybody around us in the airport was looking at me suffering and crumbling under my own weight…

As a young man working at the airport lifted me in a wheelchair, all I could think of was:

“Will I ever feel OK again?”

I was supposed to fly to Chicago to celebrate the 30th birthday of my daughter. 

But in this state of pain, there was no way I could make it. I wondered: 

“What will she think of me?” 

As I imagined the disappointment of my lovely, beautiful daughter, uncontrollable tears began to stream down my face, transforming the curious crowds around me into blurred, indistinct shapes of people.

Hi, my name is Henry Mandell, and in today’s article, I’m going to share with you how this painful incident led me to discover a solution to finally erase years of non-stop, stabbing pain in my knees – after trying all kinds of pain relief therapies and OTC treatments without success.

It helped me regain my mobility, independence and freedom, and enabled me to feel and move like I was 20 years younger. Thanks to this simple pain-relieving habit, I rediscovered the pleasure of going for a long walk without ever having to worry that my knees won’t make it.

Today, I want to share with you this unexpected discovery that eradicated my knee pain, without any expensive injections, dangerous prescription drugs, or risky surgery. I have tried many other knee pain treatments in the past, but no matter what I tried, the pain was always there. So if this solution worked for me, maybe it could help other people as well.

But first, I first need to tell you about…

How Life Became A Daily Nightmare Since My Knee Pain Issues

There was a time when I could enjoy long walks with my wife, walk on the golf course with some friends, or run after my grandkids – without having to worry about my knees giving up on me. 

But when I turned 59 two years ago, I started to feel a throbbing pain in my knees out of nowhere, for no specific reason. Since then, the pain got worse and worse every day – gradually transforming every single aspect of my life into a daily struggle. 

Things like walking up the stairs felt like an uphill battle. I couldn’t even tie my shoes without grimacing in pain. Sometimes, I was afraid to leave the house alone, fearing that my knees would give up on me in the middle of the street…

The pain was so bad that I could barely sleep. I would close my eyes, listen to some music, try to think of something else, but the pain overpowered everything else. This was the only thing I could focus on. 

And every time I mentioned my knee issues with my friends, they didn’t take me seriously.

“Common it can’t be that bad”

“Can’t he just toughen up a bit?”

They didn’t understand it. All of them were in excellent health, running, playing tennis, or doing long walks every week. They couldn’t conceive that I already had a crippling pain in my late fifties. 

I felt like a prisoner in the body of an elderly stranger. Unable to get rid of that insidious pain that was wasting what could have been perfectly fine life memories. 

And the worst part is: I had no idea why this was happening! I hadn’t injured myself or anything. I hadn’t done any intense physical activities that would have applied pressure on my knees. 

But suddenly, literally out of nowhere, my knee was invaded by throbbing pain and there was nothing I could do about it. 

The pain was so bad that I had to stop my daily walks with Joey, a 9-year-old labrador. 

But even worse than the pain itself was the fear that I will never be independent again. That I will have to rely on my wife and children for everything, until the end of my life…

And that’s when…

I decided to go on a quest to find a solution to end this life-ruining knee pain for good

I didn’t want to end up in a wheelchair for the next 20 years of my life. So I decided I was going to do everything in my power to get rid of this life-ruining knee pain for good.

In the course of a few months, I tried various forms of massage, acupuncture, yoga, physical therapies. I looked online for quick, affordable knee pain relieving solutions, and tried them all as quickly as I could. 

Unfortunately, nothing worked. Sometimes I would feel a temporary relief in my knees, but the pain would hit me back twice stronger a few hours later. Every time I tried a new solution, my hopes of recovering my mobility were shattered almost immediately…

I truly felt helpless. My doctors and therapists couldn’t explain it. They gave me some pills to numb the pain for a while and make my daily life more bearable. But the more pills I took, the quicker my pain would come back. I was feeling like a junkie – asking for more and more pills because the pain relieving effects were fading with time…  

And the worst part is: those pills had major side effects. I was feeling like a zombie, deprived of any life energy, unable to appreciate the present moment like normal people. 

I had never felt so helpless in my entire life. I felt like my life was over, and I was only 61.

Then one day, while I was about to fly to Chicago to celebrate the 30th birthday of my daughter, it happened… I felt a shooting burst of pain in my knees unlike anything I felt before. A few seconds later, I was agonizing on the airport ground while my wife was shouting for help under the curious eyes of a large crowd of people. 

A kind young man who was part of the airport security staff lifted me in a wheelchair, and gave me a tissue to wipe away the tears that were blurring my vision.

“My father used to suffer from intense knee pain for nearly three years, so trust me, I know what you feel like,” he told me. His name was Alex.

And then…

He told me something that finally allowed me to enjoy my life again after years of pain and struggle

While he told me how his father suffered from knee pain for many years, I felt like he was basically describing the story of my life…

The constant fear that my knee might give up on me at any minute… The sleepless nights… The disempowering feeling of dependence on others…

He told me:

“I watched my father suffer day after day, and seeing his soul and body declining so fast made me incredibly sad. He couldn’t see any friends. He was isolated in his home. He would wake up in the middle of the night sweating and screaming in pain. I was the only one that took care of him.”

“He tried over-the-counter-medicine, but these drugs were basically melting his kidneys and liver away… His doctor gave him pain killing pills to numb the pain, but he quickly became addicted. After a few months, he had to take one pill every hour to feel only a mild sense of relief. In fact, at some point, he had become so insensitive to the pills that his doctor advised to lower doses because the side effects had started to become really serious… So the pain became even more intense”

“My god, that awful…”, I said, terrified that the same thing might happen to me relatively soon.

“It was… Believe me… But I couldn’t leave my father in this zombified state. I had to do something. I took a new part-time job to spend more time with him and find a solution to his knee problems. I spent every single minute of my free time looking for knee pain therapies and remedies, calling doctors, therapists, rheumatologists… but the answers were always the same: risky surgeries, pain pills, drugs, and massage therapies he’d already tried before but didn’t work.”

“But after searching for a solution for months, I ended up meeting with a doctor that finally helped us find an effective remedy to his pain… He told me that rheumatic researchers had recently discovered a new kind of ‘compression therapy’ that could erase knee pain almost instantly, regardless of the pain intensity,” he explained. 

Having tried every kind of these so-called “therapies”, I was naturally very skeptical. But I let him continue.

“It’s basically a cold or hot compression high-tech sleeve that you put around your knee to decrease swelling and relieve the pain. My doctor explained to me that when ice compression is applied on the aching area, it decreases the temperature and constricts blood vessels, decreasing the build-up of swelling fluids in the knee.” 

“He also told me that ice compression can numb nerve endings, reducing the transfer of impulses to the brain that register as pain. So essentially, this compress sleeve can knock down the pain receptors in your knee, so that you stop feeling any pain within seconds. It might sound simple, but this is actually how my father got rid of his knee pain, using this cold compression sleeve regularly. And it was effective on day one.” 

I was intrigued. But then…

He however warned me about knee compression technologies…

“There are a few things you need to know about these compression sleeves, however… My doctor warned me that there were many sleeves on the market that are so poorly conceived that they end up making the life of the user even more difficult… 

First, you need to choose a sleeve that doesn’t slip or drip from melting ice or condensation, so that you don’t need a towel to dry your leg every two seconds. Second, you want to use a compression sleeve that is as easy as possible to use. My father just had to take his sleeve out of the freezer, put it around his knee, get the pain relief, and put it back in the freezer, without having to clean it,” he explained. 

“Got it. And what is the name of the compression sleeve your father used? Do you have any recommendations of brands in particular?”

“My doctor advised me to opt for a sleeve called ‘Hydragun Thermosleeve’. According to him, it’s one of the fastest-acting compression sleeves on the market to relieve joint pain. It uses a plush hydrogel technology that covers the entire joint, applying the ideal temperature and pressure to relieve pain. There’s no condensation, and you don’t need to clean it up. You just take it out of the freezer, wear it around your painful knee, and pain is relieved within seconds as your nerves are knocked out by the cold compression,” he said.

“If you want to reduce soreness and stiffness, you can also heat the sleeve in the microwave for ten minutes. When used hot, it will increase the blood flow and relax the joint area. That said, my father used it cold as he was dealing with acute joint pain. But you have the choice. Plus it comes with a 60-day money-back guarantee, so you can try it, see the results for yourself, and return it if it doesn’t work for you.”

I must say that although Alex was very convincing, I was still extremely skeptical about this compression sleeve. It just seemed so easy…

But at the same time, he did tell me that his father had also tried all kinds of pain treatments in the past, and nothing worked for him either. So if this sleeve allowed him to finally relieve his pain, maybe it could work for me as well, who knows.

So once we got back home from the airport with my wife (I couldn’t fly in my state), I gave it a shot and ordered a Hydragun Thermosleeve online on the Hydragun website.

I received my compression sleeve a few days later. As indicated, I left it in the freezer for a while, and then took it out.

I wasn’t expecting much of it to be fair. I applied ice on my knee before and it didn’t do any wonders.

But when I put this tight compressed sleeve around my knee, I was speechless…

…I felt an instant wave of relaxation throughout my whole body. It felt like the pain in my knee was instantly washed away by the cold compress. All I could feel was a cold, tight, gentle pressure in my knee area. 

After thirty seconds, the pain was nearly completely gone. And the swelling had significantly retreated. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I kept the sleeve for a good ten minutes, the time to “heal” my knee. And when I took it off, I felt like a new man. 

Granted, I could still feel that my knee was weak, and that I couldn’t apply too much pressure on it. But for the first time in a long, long time, I could finally walk normally, without feeling any major pain. 

In the next few days, I kept putting the cold compress around my knee for ten minutes every morning. And the more I was using it, the better I got. Walking up the stairs wasn’t a challenge anymore. I could tie my shoes without feeling any pain. 

And most importantly, I could get out of the house and go for a walk alone or with my dog Joey, without having to fear that my knee would give up on me. 

For the first time in years of struggle, after trying countless useless pain relief treatments, I finally had my life back. I regained my mobility, freedom and independence. And believe me, it’s one of the best feelings in the world. 

Every time I felt the slightest bit of discomfort in my knee, I put the Thermosleeve on and a few minutes after, my knee was good to go.

All I did was to get this Hydragun Thermosleeve, and applied it on my knee every morning.

At first, I was very skeptical, because it seemed so simple. But given the life-changing it had for me, I’m glad I have the Thermosleeve a shot. 

Anyway, I hope this article will help other people like me, who have been dealing with joint pain for years, get rid of their pain and reclaim their life and freedom. 

Best regards,
