Do your knees ache? Are they keeping you from walking? Running? Playing sports? Life doesn't have to be a pain in the knee!
Nearly half a million knee surgeries are performed in America alone every year. Most of them could have been prevented. Now you can heal the hurt and avoid strains and sprains with straight talk about:
-The most common knee problems, and arthritis at any age.
-High risk and junior sports.
-Arthroscopy, surgery, painkillers and medications, and proper footwear.
-Strengthening and conditioning, the total rehab regime, and much, much more . . .
Dr. James M. Fox, pioneer in the development of sports medicine and the use of arthroscopy, and member of the medical staff for the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, pulls no punches. Whether you're a novice at knee pain or an old pro at hobbling around, he tells you exactly what you need to know to have strong, healthy, pain-free knees.

This detailed and well-written book really lives up to its title, and I wish I'd found it sooner. I'm not a doctor, but from my own knee history and research, the authors' advice seems up-to-date and clear, and in my case, it's certainly been helpful.
