(Natural News) Experiencing knee pain? Ditch harmful drug pain relievers and use natural pain relievers instead. A study published in the journal Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice has found that black cumin oil is a safe and effective natural treatment for knee pain.

In the study, researchers from Selçuk University and Eski?ehir Osmangazi University in Turkey assessed the analgesic effect of black cumin oil on older people living with knee pain. They recruited 60 participants experiencing knee pain for the study. The participants were randomly divided into two groups: the treatment group and the control group. Participants in the control group continued their routine prescription for knee pain, while the treatment group applied black cumin oil to their knees thrice a week for a period of one month. The researchers compared the severity of knee pain of the participants from the first day of the study to the 30th day.

Based on the results of the study, the application of black cumin oil on the knees significantly reduced the severity of pain of the treatment group. This led the researchers to conclude that black cumin oil possesses pain relieving properties that are effective in treating knee pain among the elderly.
