It starts with degenerative changes, then arthritis, and ultimately bone on bone knee pain. Next thing you know you’re having that conversation with your doctor about being a “perfect candidate for a knee replacement surgery.” This is how the story goes as baby boomers get older, these are the conversations happening by the thousands on a daily basis. What the doctors don’t tell you is that once you have a knee replacement surgery you still have lots of work to do, now it just with the bones in your legs cut off and replaced with plastic and metal. The good thing is there are other better solutions to be had. A natural holistic solutions that doesn’t involve drugs, shots or surgery. A solution that is much easier that you could ever imagine in some ways and more difficult than you could ever imagine in others.

Bill Parravano is “The Knee Pain Guru” and has been called, “the best in the world at eliminating knee pain without drugs, shots or surgery.”
He brings over 26 years of martial art and bodywork experience understanding movement and tensions patterns that lead to physical pain.
Bill believes the nervous system is the key to the body’s healing, and bridges the gap between what we currently know and the infinite possibilities of what we don’t know the body is capable of. Coupled with comfort, this combination creates the shortest distance between a life riddled with pain to a physical life fully mobile and self expressed.
“You can’t think your way out of pain. Pain is not rational and doesn’t care what you think. You must feel your way out of pain through comfort. Through the weeks, months and years of injury and compensation patterns built up in your body limiting your movement and making you feel older than you are.”
His unique ability of identifying the blocks that keep people stuck in pain and skillfully removing them allows for lasting change, and a new reality for his clients…
Hello: I have bone on bone on my right knee and almost bone on bone in my left knee. I mostly have pain when I’m trying to sleep. What advice can you give me to get some relief so that I can sleep at night?. How long will it take to see some results?
Results will vary depending on if you do the stretch to begin with and then consistently after that. Then if you have the commitment to do the homework given to you.

I am ready to sign up for the 6 week program. Can I do this without the 4 mo. follow up? I am hesitant of signing up for a programs where there are recurring charges. Help me understand the details. Is there a cancellation clause:
At 62 years old, I’ve been a marathon runner for the last 16 years and have run over 80 marathons and ultra marathons but now have bone on bone arthritis on the inside of my right knee which is reducing my running to fewer and fewer miles on an almost weekly basis. Could these exercises allow me to at least run without knee pain?
Initially your focus is NOT going to be on exercise(s). First you want to focus on creating “Pain-Pattern Interrupts” in the knee on a consistent and regular basis. This allows the knee to relax and get the pressure off of the nerves being irritated causing the pain in the knee allowing the body to begin healing the knee.
This would be a good place for you to start:
Work with this for the next several weeks, and you’ll note the changes you begin to experience in the knee…
Hello. I’ve just watched your video re rotating the knee. However my problem is different. I am told it is bone on bone and I’m on a waiting list for surgery – which I have now put off because (a) I don’t have any permanent pain in my knee and (b) I have full movement, can dance, do yoga, kneel. BUT I have an increasingly pronounced limp when walking on hard pavements. As I was a keen walker for health and well being this pisses me off. The left knee obviously doesn’t want to take my full weight when walking… Read more »
Of course your problem is different, as is everyone’s…
Your current level of awareness and experience with “Pain-Pattern Interrupts” leaves you believing that your knee rotates in both directions equally. I have over 200 “Pain-Pattern Interrupts” in my members area where I work with clients to custom tailor a program so they can walk normal and get their life back…
Where you fit in depends on what you want.
If you want a solution, I can help you with that…

Hello, I had meniscus surgery last February 2016 to help relieve the pain in my lower knee but almost year after surgery I still have pain – now they say it is bone against bone and arthritis and I would be looking a knee replacement down the road.

Hello my name is Anne. I am 43 years old and have bilateral knee osteoarthritis. After serving in the Army and injuring both knees things just progressively got worse. My right knee has recently begin to lock (no cartilage per MRI) and is really painful. Due to my inability to workout as I would like I am now over 200 lbs and I am sure this is not helping.

Hello. I am writing to you in an effort to get some advice on what I am up against with my right knee. After opting to have meniscus arthroscopy, I now am in a bone on bone situation with pain worse than ever. I neglected to hear a shoulder replacement surgeon advise against these procedures. His advice : don’t do it. Well, I did it and now here I am in agony The doc’s soft voice and gentle bedside manor won me over. Now comes the knee replacement spiel. X-rays,MRI’s reveal bone on bone on inner side. Don’t want to… Read more »

Several years ago I was diagnosed with patella femoral syndrome.. Another physician added arthritis to the problem. Last year I fell and injured my knee. The MRI shows a torn meniscus and degenerative arthritis.. The doctor wants to perform arthoscopic surgery to repair the meniscus and clean as much of the arthritis as possible. He stated that the surgery would be simple, but I feel there must be a better way. I do not want any kind of surgery if possible. Do you have any suggestions?
I would say, “Don’t do it.” I am 63 years old. I went to Thailand in Feb. 2015 and walked around a lot with not very good shoes on (but I didn’t know I had the beginnings of Plantar Fasciitis either.) When I got home my right heel was killing me. I was found to have Plantar Fasciitis. It went on for 3 months and was horribly painful. During this time I could feel my knee getting weak. Sure enough, I whipped around to grab the gate so my dogs couldn’t escape and tore my meniscus. I also have arthritis.… Read more »
Lacy – Yes there is lots that needs to be done as the road you’re going down now leads to a knee replacement surgery. Your first two steps would be:
1.) Make sure you sign up for the newsletter here – https://www.thekneepainguru.com/
2.) Setup a time for us to speak about your knees and figure out a strategy for you be it in my program or someplace else here – https://www.thekneepainguru.com/appt/
I’m 40 now but have had arthritis since 24. 3 scoped done on both knees. Chronic knee pain in both and its bone on bone. Specialist I have said lose the weight but don’t exercise so I’m on a diet plan now. I can feel my knee pull apart plus I have no immune system. I have an uploader brace but that makes things worse. I have had more than 10 accidents to where my knees were injured. I just don’t know what to do anymore.
Any help is appreciated.
Sure Holly – Follow this link and setup a time for us to chat more about what you have going on. That will be the best way for me to help you: https://www.thekneepainguru.com/appt/
My daughter bought your book Your Guide To Get Out Of Pain Now. I just can’t wait to start trying the different exercises and pray that I will heal. I refuse to have knee replacement. I have bone on bone. Thank you for your inspiring words.
Keep me posted as to how it goes…If you “hit a wall” I can provide you with more support…
I have bone on bone on both knees from Rheumatoid Arthritis and am in constant pain when walking . I use a cane to help me walk. I was considering a double knee replacement when I came across your site. I have always believed the body could heal itself, but didn’t think that included something like this. I would like to know more about your program. thanks, Nancy
