Treat Your Own Knees Summary

Treat Your Own Knees: A Self-Help Treatment Plan to Fully Rehabilitate 26 Common Knee Injuries and Conditions by Brad Walker

The prominence of knee references in the English language; knee jerk reaction, the bee's knees, knee deep; should be hint enough to the importance of the knee. The knee, at first sight, may appear to be a simple joint; however, it is actually quite complex. This complexity also makes the knee susceptible to many injuries. The knee is often overlooked until something goes wrong. Healthy knees are generally happy knees, and keeping the knees healthy is much better than trying to rehabilitate them after an injury. This easy-to-understand book will help a whole range of people, including athletes, sports enthusiasts, and personal trainers to understand their knee injury, and show them how to overcome the injury through a proven rehabilitation program. Packed with illustrations of the anatomy of the knee, rehabilitation exercises, plus unique color drawings of each of the 25 knee injuries covered, this will prove an invaluable and indispensible resource.
