The name has no relevance to
the fighting sport.
It is the day in the 1800s
Queen Victoria of England decided
she would declare in honor of
the poor. History dictates that

gifts to give their servants. On
that day, workers were also gifted

Kwanzaa begins on Boxing
Day to mark a weeklong, African-
American, cultural celebration.
Regarded as the harvest of the
first fruits, the celebration hails
African heritage and culture with
unifying principles to adhere.

kinara, daily recitation of the

This One Thing Can Lead You To Freedom From Knee
Pain and Save You From A Knee Replacement…
You feel frustrated and sick and tired of feeling like
you are in your 90’s when you are trying to enjoy your
early retirement. Now you’re walking down the stairs
sideways step-by-step like a baby afraid your knee will
buckle. Popping Solgar No.7 vitamins and Glucosamine
pills for breakfast, has you feeling frustrated, because
the gel shots, the braces and the icy hot and Physical
Therapy is making things worse. The pain is so bad that
the sleeping is getting harder. 9 haunting words from the
knee specialist you saw echo in your head “Maybe you
should consider the knee replacement surgery soon…”
WAIT! DON’T GIVE UP… NEVER
GIVE UP HERE’S WHY…
I agree with you and it’s not your fault that the old
fashioned way of treating knee arthritis with the same
old rooster shots (hyaluronic acid injection) FAILED
YOU – just a short term bandaid! Yes, even if they
tell you they use ultrasound guided and fluoroscopic
precision xrays to put the injection in the exact place
where the bone is touching bone, it’s still the same old
placebo potion delivered in a fancier way. Ok…it helps
for some, but for you it was a waste of time… am I right?
YOUR KNEE ARTHRITIS IS
COMPARED TO A “TOOTH DECAY
CAVITY” YET THAT’S NOT THE
I want to ask you a really BIG question…ok? Do you
really think that there is science backing the theory of
gel shots? Your answer was “I dunno”! The only thing
that is backing those shots, is science that Medicare
pays some money for the doctor’s appointment to
examine you! Those shots cost $500 to you! These
shots are as guaranteed as hitting the lottery!
VITAMINS DON’T WORK AND
Do you really think that glucosamine will reach your
joint? Honestly, you are swallowing a water pill and
you need to know that there is a huge placebo effect.
OK THIS IS A PROMISE OF A REAL
SCIENTIFIC SOLUTION NOT A
I agree with you that the Traditional Physical Therapy
DID NOT WORK! Actually it worsened your condition
especially when you were told to ride the bike, right?
SO WHAT! COME ON I AM A DOCTOR OF PHYSICAL
THERAPY AND I AM TELLING YOU THAT TRADITIONAL
THERAPY JUST WON’T WORK! I DO KNOW WHAT
ACTUALLY 387 REAL PATIENTS WITHIN THE LAST 5
YEARS HAVE CALLED ME PERSONALLY TO CONSULT ME
FOR A SECOND OPINION TO HAVING KNEE SURGERY
BECAUSE MY PROPRIETARY SYSTEM GETS RESULTS …
NO THIS IS NOT STEM CELLS!
Stem cells cost $5,000 and get zero results, because
there is zero proof that they work. Don’t do it! NO NOT
PRP SHOTS! Taking blood and spinning it in a centrifuge
these $1,000 injections can heal your arthritis. PRP
works for other issues just not arthritis. I know because
I spent the last 3 years being mentored by the top Sports
Medicine PRP and STEM CELL experts in the country
and I saw with my own eyes what works and here it is…
READ THE NEXT FEW LINES BELOW.
WHAT IS KNEE DEROTATION AND
Forget what you just read! Let’s focus on the next few
Your hip is like the axle of a car, your knee a shock
absorber and your foot the tires… make a mental image,
close your eyes so you can picture it now.
Can you drive a car with a flat tire? Yes, sure you can,
but you know after sometime what will happen is the
shock from the street will destroy the shock absorbers
between the axle and the tire, as the car rolls over the
pot holes… Can you drive a car with a misaligned axle?
Sure you can but after sometime the car starts to pull in
one direction and the shock absorber begins to wear out.
THAT’S YOUR KNEE! IT’S A SHOCK
KNEE DEROTATION AND REALIGNMENT TECHNOLOGY
uses a non-radiation-based laser scanner that instantly
analyzes your hip, knee and ankle alignment looking
for the exact misalignment angle. Traditional xrays
look only at the knee joint and don’t take the hip and
ankle into account causing Doctors to misjudge what is
really the true cause of the bone-on-bone in your knee.
Whether it’s your hip, or your foot and ankle, our scanner
shows us the exact measurements telling us how to
derotate your hip—based on kinesiology (the science
of muscles, bones and nerves). A few centimeters of
derotation will decompress and realign your hip, turning
on a critical small muscle deep in the buttock called the
short rotator. We do this while we gently pull your hip
with a decompression pulley device. Simply put, we
activate your weak unused hip muscle.
Arthritis Research and Therapy 18 Article 255
Functional electrical stimulation of gluteus medius have
shown that once the muscle is turned on the hip levels
out and unpinches the inside of the knee during walking.
Unicompartmental arthritis is what doctors call the pain
on the inner part of your knee and worn out meniscus.
This is exactly what we attempt to decompress using
this derotation method. During the derotation, we use
a tool called deep muscle stimulator to break up the
scar tissue in the inner knee while the hip is stretched
and derotated. And let me tell you it works and it lasts.
