“Are your knees painful, stiff, or swollen? Whether you’re feeling occasional twinges, are in constant pain, or are looking to avoid future problems with your needs, this book is for you.” Reading that statement on the back of the book sold it for me. I’m at the beginning stages of knee pain and I know, if there’s one thing I don’t want in my life right now, it’s knee surgery! In this one volume I learned about the anatomy of the knee, why things go wrong with my knees, preventative measures to keep my knees healthy, exercises to strengthen my knees, treatments for knee pain, and how to gauge when it’s time to have surgery, if ever. This book was written by Gregory M. Martin, M.D. who is a board-certified Harvard fellowship trained knee surgeon.
Included in the book is a fitness program created by Bob Habib, RPT who is a registered physical therapist with 30 years of experience treating knee disorders. Even though this book was written by highly educated and credentialed individuals, it was so well written and easy to understand, I was able to apply what I learned from it immediately. From simply fixing your diet, to performing knew strengthening exercises, to understanding the parts of the knee, to considering treatments for pain, the book really is for you.
