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 am just finishing up my first week of phase 2 and I can tell my knees are a lot stronger than they were at the beginning of this program. It IS time consuming at the beginning(phase 1) but it is a MUST. The first week was honestly a bit rough for me and I felt a bit depressed having to spend soooooo much time on all the exercises, but soon it became a routine. Going into phase 2 has saved me some time(as the number of days you do strength and eccentric squats decreases and you can foam roll WHEN NEEDED as opposed to every day). I have also modified the program a bit to include the exercises and stretches that I feel are most beneficial to me( and have added some of my own )and that seems to be working for me.
It is a LONG road to recovery(so be patient!) but I keep reminding myself I am building a solid foundation for my knees so I can return to the higher impact workouts I was doing before I injured myself(my own fault for placing too much load on my tendons too quickly). The pain is decreasing from week to week in both of my knees( I managed to injure both. D'oh!) and I feel confident that if I stick with this program I will be 100% in a couple of months.
From an "entertainment" standpoint, I really enjoyed reading this book. Usually this type of book would bore me, but I found the writing engaging and easy to understand.
After about 5 or so weeks of going through the exercises laid out in this book, I can play basketball at low intensity and be pain free the next day. Huge improvement from basically being maimed after doing the same activity just a month ago. I am still adjusting to not needing to brace for pain when getting up from a seat, or generally loading the tendon concentrically, something that wasn't possible a short while ago.
The exercises are long, there is no denying that. But, if you stick with it and you make it an effort to not jump the gun back to sport quickly, I'm pretty sure that you'll see improvements quickly relative to the path that I have taken in the path of traditional PT-recommended options.
Reads in chapters 5-8 very much like a cookbook for better knees, with research abound elsewhere. Do yourself a favor and get a slant board to pair with this if you're really looking to make strides.
