I had to be extremely patient and diligent though and work and master each stage of the progression- First Pre-hab, then Knee-hab 1 & Knee-Hab 2, and finally I can do Knee- How!
It is anatomically informative and so beneficial for all levels of fitness. I can say that because I am a yoga instructor, massage therapist and an anatomy teacher! However, I believe I am most qualified to recommend this video because I WAS a knee pain sufferer too.
I can safely say that this video has been invaluable in my knee re-hab and re-education but it has also made me feel that my knees are now in better shape than they were PRE-Surgery! Hmmmm, perhaps all that mis-alignment was why they got so injured in the first place!. Now, I know at first most knees should walk and not run to get this video, but after you put in some well-knee-ded time with this video, you may be finally able to RUN and get your friend's knees a copy too!
But all joking aside, I hurt my back in 1996 which led to an altered gait (I fall a lot and use a cane at times) but I still kept exercising as best I could. Flash forward 15 years, and that altered gait has put so much stress on my knees that the pain became unbearable. My doctor tried physical therapy, cortisone shots into both knees and prescription anti inflammatory drugs but the problem continued to worsen and I feared that I would soon be unable to walk. Faced with going back to using my wheelchair, I knew that I had to do something, anything to fix my knees.
The first time I used the Kneehab DVD I was surprised how difficult some of the exercises were.Read more ›
I next observed level 1 which is all sitting on a chair. Easy, but intense, spot-on help. There's the rocking your feet toe to heel, rocking your feet side to side. These activate the ankles and calves. I also like the one that looks like you're doing a sitting down version of the Charleston. One of the most helpful, and I do as best I can post-op, is crossing and un-crossing the legs. Activates the hips. There are many more exercises done in the chair that she gives good reasons for doing them and urges you to do them to the best of your ability.
I have observed the next 2 levels and, post-op, I'm not ready for these as they have to be done standing up or bending the knees. I know I will get there but not today as I write this review.
I'm writing this review because I want to tell you this is a pretty darn good video SPECIFIC to knee problems.Read more ›
Bottom line: I would not recommend this if you want to do daily exercises for your knees.
