Working With the Knees for Joint Pain
Suzo (Seattle, WA) on 06/13/2007: My hips had been hurting for some months. The physical therapist told me to sit down and then stand up and notice what was happening to my knees. I looked and saw that they came together when I rose or sat. That was putting improper stress on my hip joints. He said to make a fist with my hand, place between my knees and remember to keep that distance as I sat down or stood up. It worked! An easy habit to form and I have cured my hip soreness. And maybe saved myself from hip surgery. Thanks everyone for all the help we provide each other and especially thanks to Ted and the staff at Earth Clinic.
