Are there specific articles to search on Julie Gudmestad for back and joint care that I can refer to please?


Thank you for a very helpful article!
An orthopedist told me my gradually increasing knee pain comes from excessive rotation of the joint, caused from loose tendons in the posterolateral corner.
I didn't have an acute injury, so some of my "hyper" flexion habits were suspect to him. That includes sitting in a malasana-type position pretty regularly. I'd love any thoughts you have about this, and whether the knee flexion in some asanas can create risks of this looseness in the joint.
Thank you.


This is helpful to hear from a physical therapist/yoga teacher.
