    Hi my name is Cameron, I am 23 years old, and I recently finished reading The Mindbody Prescription by Dr. John Sarno. For the past 2.5 years, I have been a victim of chronic knee pain. I use to be an avid long distance runner. Back in the beginning of 2014, I was preparing for the Houston marathon. Three weeks prior to the marathon I suffered pain in my right knee during mid run. I continued to train and ultimately was not able to run the marathon. Ever since then I have been in a decline. I stopped running and then switched to cycling. For months I had no problems cycling 1 to 2 hours per session. Unfortunately that came to an end as well, because my right knee began to feel pain when cycling. At this point I sought medical advice about 7 to 8 months down the line. The doctor took x-rays and a MRI. The results from the MRI listed: Mild suprapatellar joint effusion, prepatellar bursitis, and patellar tendinosis. At this point in time, I experienced a strong stiffness and discomfort after just one workout per week. The doctor decided it was mainly bursitis, but I had always thought bursitis involved swelling of the knee. And of course I had never had any swelling in the knee. From here I received a cortisone shot, which ultimately did not help. I tried multiple types of physical therapy from the Graston technique, ultrasound therapy, and stretching. Now fast forward to 2016, I currently do not run or cycle anymore because of the increasing discomfort in my knee. The pain isn’t strong, but I never push it because I’m afraid of what will happen. After reading The Mind Body Prescription, I feel I have found some real inspiration. So I am hoping people can comment if anyone has had similar experiences such as mine. I am currently starting to implement Dr. Sarno techniques to rid myself of the pain.
