Torn Meniscus and compressed c1-c7

Hello All!

I have a new student that was told by her doctor to not put ANY weight on her knees… but at least he recommended against knee surgery.

Torn mensicus, right knee is the worst, happened 8 months ago. Wears a knee brace in class.

WILL NOT DO ANYTHING on her knees.

Cause, she mentioned old age. No athletic background or injury . She is 55yrs.

Also compressed c1-c7.

Any tips or insight?

I encouraged her to keep coming back and the things she can do be really diligent… be she refused to be on her knees at any point.

Thanks a bunch!

Hi Lyndsay:

Just have her do what she can and rest when she cannot do any part of the posture. Don’t try to come up with something for her to do because she’ll never be motivated to try the right way. If she keeps coming she will get better.

No pain. That’s all.

Let me know if you have specific questions on specific postures.

I also had compressed C1-C7, I had been 5’3″ before the compression, 5’1″ after. I am now 5’5″. The compression can be reversed, just try the best she can, the right way and the body will change.

Good luck.
