This is an effective, practical, easy-to-use book of exercises to strengthen knees and prevent pain and problems. Written by a physical therapist, this book uses simple, effective do-it-yourself treatments for knee pain, backed up by several drawings and illustrations that clearly show the correct way to perform the exercises. It shows how to improve four vital functions - muscular strength, flexibility, responsiveness and endurance, showing what their role is in maintaining movement and knee health, and why they are each essential. The last chapter is a master plan that pulls together all the concepts and exercises into a time-efficient exercise programme.
