February 2015 - Knee Pain Video | How to Reverse Aging | Balance & Function Video

Welcome to February - may yours be pain free and full of love! OET News this month features a video in which Pete Egoscue explains and demonstrates how most knee pain is not because of the condition of the joint (arthritis, meniscus tear) but the position of the joint (posture). Included this month is a not-to-miss video featuring 73 year old Stephan Jepson explaining how he has learned how to stop and reverse aging. Don't forget to try the Egoscue workout video that focuses on restoring postural balance to your body. The last featured article is about how to prevent ACL injuries that are common in all pivoting sports.

How to eliminate pain quickly


What causes knee pain? Not age. Not genetics. Not the condition of the knee. It's the position of the knee. 

In order to have pain free knees, your load joints (ankles, knees, hips, and shoulders) must line up and work together. 

Your body works as a unit. Hip bone is connected to the thigh bone...everything is connected. Your knee pain is influenced by all other load joints.

Realigning your posture will allow your body to work as it was designed - pain free - regardless of the condition of the body. Watch Pain Free Knees by Pete Egoscue and contact us to set up your free posture evaluation to learn what you need to do to be pain free.
