How To Take Your 1st Pain Free Step

Thanks for your feedback on the previous video…

Taking the first step to eliminating your chronic knee pain can be a little scary and many times you will feel all alone. This video covers how there are many people very much like you and you do have support. We also cover how knee pain progresses and gets worse over time unless you begin to create space in your knee joint. Without this space all the supplements in the world are not going to help what is going on with your knees.

  1. my knee pain is unbearable because there is hardly any cartilage left behind in the rt knee.So whatever positive thinking I may do, it will never help because the organic damage is there.

  2. Hi Bill,
    Hurt knee originally throgh football collission when I was about 19. Knee subluxed probably about 10 times in next 2 years. Good run for next 10 years….worked on it. Had a clean out early 30’s all good. Then started boxing about age 35. Bad dislocation…subsequent clean out. From here it has never been the same……chronic pain & swelling. Got back to boxing then disslocated again about 8 months after last disslocation. Decided to have a patella release….waste of time ….did not help. From that operation actually got a mynoma (trapped nerve) in scar tissue. Finally got that fixed….big relief. But still had chronic pain and swelling. MRI revealed chip off patella. Had operation to remove chip which ended up being 3 chips….tendons taken off these chips then reattached to patella. 5 months after op now and still moderate pain and chronic swelling. Don’t know what to do….just want to be able to run again without all the swelling. Have you heard of prolozone therapy…is it worth trying? Cheers

  3. Thanks Bill,
    I guess I’m just frustrated because it is taking longer than I thought it would. I have now backed off of the exercises – only doing the stretching and swinging. Since increasing my water intake drastically my knees are definitely more comfortable. Nice to know one is not alone – thanks for all you are doing!

  4. Hi Bill,
    Thanks for the encouraging words. We’ve tweeted about my inertia in starting the program, but I have begun drinking lots of water. Also, the weather is finally cooperating and I’m able to get in the pool and gently use my knees in many ways. I do find, however, that when on land, the pain is slightly worse after pooltime. The idea that knee replacement is not the only option provides such comfort to chronic knee-pain disabled people like me. Thanks!

  5. Hi Bill,
    Thanks for the encouraging video.
    Please show some exercises as well so that we can follow better. Thanks.

  6. Hi Bill,

    You are right and helping me just by listening carefuly to your ideas. I am a swimmer with pain on right knee and left foot, using fins have been great help, wish there were orthopedic fins, I am in the water 6hrs per day…fins hurt after a while too…so I use more arms and less kick.
    Also I added a tablespoon of honey to my water and I am sure to drink it all 500mL,
    yeswater helps knees and kidneys.
    I thank you!,

  7. The number of older people like me (I’m turning 70 in the fall) with too
    little cartilage in the knee joints is huge. Could you focus some of your
    videos and excercises on our problems? some of us are not as strong as
    we should be due to inactivity caused by knee problems.
    thanks!

  8. Wonderful, clear description of what is happening that creates the pain. ( I do have bone on bone and a very misaligned femur/tibia connection- femur head has slipped 1/3″ medial to the tibia). I would love some clear direction (specific stretches or movements) to begin creating the space you speak of. I am in the virtual clinic and there are so many exercises to choose from… how do I begin to create the space? Thanks!

  9. I enjoyed the video but I want to also echo the comments of Kanta and Tessan above. Please provide more exercises to do to “create” the space you talk about. I have osteo arthritis in my knees (level 1 in one and 2 in the other).

    PS. I am currently receiving acupuncture treatments on a bi-weekly basis which has, thus far, given me a 40% improvement. However, that is far, far from where I want to be. I am still in more or less at the mercy of my knees as to what I can and cannot do!

  10. dear bill
    i have seen that i have ahalf torn midsection menisk on ct scan.
    sometimes
    1-the knee hurts so I nearly not can walk or walk more than 5 minutes walk with dog.
    2.other times I have no pain, but the knee feels hard to conduct to the sides.
    3. sometimes i can walk on the beaches in sand without pain.

    i have thought about that it is good to walk in sand and on stones as the knee turns, uses the medial menisk in a better way strenghening thr ligament in all direction,
    walking on concrete makes it hurt, so why is it that it hurt when walking on concrete road.

    i might say i would enjoy a vacation tour on of the Canary Islands in the ATLANTIC OCEAN, WHERE THERE IS A STEADY TEMPERATURE, I ALSO LOVE THE OCEAN , THE SAND AND WALKING THEREwith a steady temperature. I MEDITATE TO LEARN TO RELIVE MYSELF FROM STRESS…… A RAINBOWBOW COLORMEDITATION…. LOVE TO YOU BILL FOR THE WORK WITH ME
