Knee Injuries and TMS Success Stories

  • Salamander's story : In this story, Salamander discusses how he had a variety of PPD symptoms since he was 16 year old, including knee pain. His symptoms were so severe that he believed the only possibly explanation was structural damage. How could one's unconscious mind create such extreme and debilitating pain? Through reading and rereading Dr. Sarno's books, Salamander began to accept the diagnosis and recover. Follow the link to read more about Salamander's TMS Success Story.

Knee Injuries referenced in TMS Books

  • On page 108 in To Be or Not To Be Pain Free, Marc Sopher writes

TMS affecting the knees is also fairly easy to recognize. A significant physical process responsible for knee pain is invariably indicated by the history and examination. A sudden blow to the knee, a forceful twisting or acute hyperextension can cause damage to bone, cartilage or ligament. However, most of the chronic and episodic knee pain lacks this type of history and exam fails to reveal important intra-articular pathology. Eager to give a physical rationale for these chronic, intermittent symptoms, physicians will offer chondromalacia patella, patellofemoral syndrome, iliotibial band syndrome, arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis or possibly a small cartilage injury not evident on exam.
