About the Author

Martin Koban began his research into the hidden causes for patellar tendonitis and knee pain in 2009, after his brother suffered a meniscus tear during volleyball training. In the years that followed, Martin passionately studied the subject to learn how knee injuries can be prevented and how you can eliminate knee pain by fixing its often-ignored underlying causes.

Martin has since published two books on this subject and worked independently with Germany's national volleyball team. The methods taught in his books are being used by numerous other professional, as well as recreational athletes from a wide range of sports.

I've struggled with patellar tendinitis since 2009, when I was told that it was only surprising it had taken so long for me to develop the condition, because everyone who has had the type of surgery I've had (a lateral release) develops it eventually. After months in physical therapy, there was no progress. I kept trying to rehab my knee but would reinjure it, time and again.

I started following Martin Koban's program in April 2013 (it was published on his website before he finished this more detailed book). After 6 months, my knee is the strongest it has been since I finished a year's worth of physical therapy surrounding my second knee surgery in the mid-2000s. I am in the process of adding back higher impact exercises, and the additional details in this book are just what I need to get back to the sports I love (running and Irish step dancing).

Mr. Koban's program is based on solid scientific evidence; he references the studies, and through my own PubMed search and reading of primary literature, I have confirmed that he knows what he's talking about (and now I have empirical proof, through my own knee, that his method works). His careful descriptions of the exercises and his emphasis on proper form should help make sure you're doing the exercises properly, getting the most benefit with minimal risk. It is important, however, to see a healthcare professional to get a proper diagnosis and to have someone check your form for you.

For anyone struggling with patellar tendonitis, this book will be an invaluable resource for healing.

Why I purchased this book:
Roughly three years ago I had a spinal reconstruction after no longer being able to deal with the pain from shattering my T9, T10 and T11 in a car accident. I will first point out that I am only 26, so I have a lifetime ahead of me, which means that understanding how I can strengthen my body from the foundation up has become a huge part of pain relief. About two years ago (a year after my surgery) I began to lift weights. Of course, I began this process slowly and did a lot of research (credible sources) to understand what I should know about my body and what I needed to do to prevent it. With that, a lot of trainers don't do things correctly, so watch for a trainer that practices what they teach. Someone who doesn't have people start with the foundation of the body is just throwing them into results. Lastly, if you walk away from 12 weeks of training and are unable to workout or understanding what to research on your own you were not "TRAINED" properly; that is, the very word training is to teach someone.

Needless to say my back pain has improved A LOT, and I have a much stronger body overall. During this process I moved to quickly in training my legs and gluts, which got me to the point of patellar tendinitis. If your knees hurt while walking up the stairs, you already more than likely have it. After doing core and back strengthening on my own and being successful (I highly recommend the Tupler Technique - most outstanding core program I have ever used in my life!) I decided to utilize this program. Ir is partially because I tend to trust Amazon reviews more than anything; hence, why I feel the need to write them.

I have suffered from chronic, mysterious knee pain. Though I have seen a big improvement over the two years since it initially started, judging from my come-and-go symptoms (and my visit to my physician), it was most likely some form of overuse injury. However, simply taking it easy and using the RICE method wasn't getting to the root of the problem because it was a nagging, recurring thing despite giving up running, jumping, et cetera. I will point out that I wasn't to the point of horrible pain, having my knee give out, nor did my doctor see any evidence of tearing on physical exam.

I purchased this book in the hope that I could find some answers. I believe this book is a good and honest work because the author is using a lot of current research and is a practitioner of these methods in real life and professionally.

I would like to point out that nobody should just buy a book about patellar tendonitis without a diagnosis, but I didn't have much money or medical insurance and I thought this would be a good way to at least try and stop making it worse.

It actually did much more than that. I believe in this book because it's a good training tool for treating the problems with your legs that ultimately lead to bad knees and a tool for getting your legs into proper shape, rather than just treating the symptoms. Looking at my routines and charting my pain gave me a good gauge for exactly how much use my legs were getting just in daily life and where/when I had to cut down as well as how I could stretch them out/improve my mechanics to perform better. I have made a lot of gains both in reducing my pain and being able to walk for slowly increasing amounts of time at a 0 pain level by adhering to what is here.

I will say don't bother picking this book up unless you are serious about committing to it because it will take a lot of work. This is a method that is probably only as good as the commitment you have with it.
