Knee pain affects millions of Americans—and women make up the bulk of sufferers. While it is the anatomy, physiology, hormones, and habits of women that likely determine when and how knees fail, many doctors still insist on treating women’s knees like smaller versions of men’s knees.
No More Knee Pain presents the first medically proven program designed especially for women. Written by Dr. George Kessler, who has helped hundreds of women heal their pain and reverse degenerative problems, this is the definitive book on female knee pain. Focusing on the structural and hormonal issues that bring about knee problems in women, No More Knee Pain will have you feeling stronger, healthier, and in much less pain within six weeks. Offering treatments for both prevention and healing, it includes straightforward information on:
• What mainstream medicine offers women with knee pain—and what it doesn’t
• The importance of good posture
• How unbalanced hormones can take a toll on your joints and what to do about it
• What to eat in order to ease joint pain
• Exercise dos and don’ts
• Mind-body factors
• Nutritional supplements
• Alternative approaches
• Body mechanics, posture corrections, and knee exercises that really work—in just a few minutes a day
Filled with case studies, simple exercises, and time-tested wisdom, this breakthrough book will help you say good-bye to your knee pain—and walk comfortably through the world again.

This book is great. Really gives insight on how to manage knee pain and inflammation. Even though I have torn meniscus my pain is more manageable. I will eventually have to have a knee replacement. I have also noticed by following the antiinflammatory diet that my inflammation in other areas of my body is less. The book is so good that I am ordering a copy to be sent to my daughter today who had to have ACL repair.
A very helpful reference for those of us with recurring knee problems. Good information on how diet, supplements and water, as well as psychological issues, play a big part in the physical wellness of our joints. Includes specific diet, supplement, and exercise information.
