I wish I would have had this book before I had a cortisone shot in my knee. I had no idea that the preservatives in the shot linger on in the joint forever. My doctor never discussed this with me or the other risks and I had to learn about it after-the-fact from reading this book. Needless to say, I will not be having any more cortisone shots.

If you have knee problems, I can guarantee you will find a useful exercise or relevant medical advice from this book. The exercises in this book make it worth the cover price alone. It was exactly what I was looking for to rehabilitate my misaligned kneecaps and lessen my arthritis in my knees. These things can be done on my own without a physical therapist and this makes me happy to be saving money.

I also never thought to ice down my kneecaps after any exercise. It makes sense, but I never thought to do it until I read this book.

There is such a wealth of information here for anyone with knee problems that this book could easily sell at 3 or 4 times the price because it is such a valuable reference for those of us with knee problems. I cannot recommend this book enough. It is now in the top 10 list of "most referenced" books in my household.

I bought this book because I have a damaged miniscus in my knee. This book allowed me to understand what exactly went wrong with my knee. It enabled me to understand my surgeon when he explained my options. It is a good value and well worth the asking price.

Easty to read. Informative. Good exercises that were explained in detail for both land and water exercises. Anyone with knee problems should read this book. It also allayed some of my fears regarding knee surgery as he explained what to expect.

Dr. Klapper is renowned in my neck of the woods. Whenever I hear about a surgeon that does everything in his power to keep you OVER the knife-I'm impressed; and then I ask if that doctor is Dr. Klapper. I'm a fitness coach and I bought this book after one of my clients had told me she had recently seen the doctor concerning a life-long knee problem. I was hesitant to read the book the client got while at Dr. Klapper's office because she had already mentioned that he'd recommended no weight bearing exercise on her knees...at all.

Many of us in the fitness industry have grown so tired of doctors treating patients like invalids who then naturally, take their doctor's advice to heart (as they should!) but when the advice is typically so extreme that the patient doesn't want to do ANYTHING in fear of going against the "doctor's orders," well that just leads to...one MORE reason not to exercise. You can imagine how working around THAT makes my job next to impossible. Not to mention that to even SUGGEST a client go against his doctor's advice can land me in a heap 'o trouble; so I defer to the doctor. But I just don't want to see clients with healthy or "healed" hips and knees wind up dying prematurely of heart disease attributable to physical inactivity.

Dr. Klapper, thankfully, understands the importance of staying physically active and had the foresight to bring along the expertise of Lynda Huey as a co-author-she knows her stuff and keeps patients active and mobile by having them train in the pool. (Hey, if pool workouts are challenging enough for Olympic track and field stars, they're good enough for me.

With an orthopedic surgeon and a water therapy expert combining forces as in Heal Your Knees: How To Prevent Knee Surgery - And What To Do If You Need It, you can't go far wrong; particularly when the objective is avoiding surgery and confronting common knee problems which come with aging and use. Learn what the doctor looks for in a knee exam, how to uncover common causes of pain and seek non-surgical remedies, and how to handle surgery and recovery if it's needed. The authors assume no prior medical or self-help knowledge, and the water therapy pool exercises are particularly resourceful in Heal Your Knees.

Book provided understandable explanation of knee injuries, but the most important information for me, were the pictures and descriptions of the exercises that help strengthen your knees prior to considering surgery.

Bad left knee and I live in a ski town. These exercises work. So does the heat and cold pain relief recommendation.

I am dealing with arthritic knee pain and thought it would be a good idea to get this book for knee exercises. I probably should have just pulled out all of my old knee rehab exercises, since basically that is what half of this book is. The other half of the book is devoted to exercises in the water, which is very useful for knee rehabbing (and according to the book, the best way). However, I do not have access to a pool, so for me, it isn't helpful. So, I would say that if you never did knee rehab and need a manual to describe what exercises to perform OR if you have access to a pool and would like to do exercises in the water, then this book is probably a good purchase. For me, not so much.
