This book is not only useful for the explanations of knee surgery and what to expect post surgery ( even if your surgeon may do things slghtly differently-the book is written by an American surgeon) but also for the Physiotherapy chapters.
This includes a chapter on land exercises but also a pool workout which was a godsend and very very useful for me.
I had surgery for an ACL repair and torn cartilage 3 months ago. My major problem was that I could not weight bear for 6 weeks on my operated knee so 3 weeks after surgery I was feeling frustrated as I had to slow down physio due to my knee becoming pianful. The pool exercises that are included in this book were my next step in my rehab...I continued my every day physio but started to include a water workout three times a week which did not only include kicking with a float but plenty of different exercises which would have been impossible for me to do on dry land.
The end result was that I had full range of motion in little time and kept a good muscular mass. So much so that hen I was able to start gym workout I managed to recuperate my muscule power very quickly and was well ahead at the three month mark.
Really consider this book if you are to undergo knee surgery,if you will be doing a lot of the physio yourself or if you are considering working in the pool during your rehab.
Lynda Huey has also written " The Complete Water Power Workout Book" which has also plenty of all- body exerises to do in the pool.

I have used the advice of these authors in their previous book "Heal Your Hips". Once I got into the water using their advice, the pain relief was immediate and lasted.
This new book on knees, uses the same approach for very similar cartilage problems. If you are trying to find effective advice to minimise knee cartilage problems, this book may be all that you need.

Fantastic book. I got this one before buying the The Complete Waterpower Workout Book by the same authors. It is full of very sound explanations and advices, and everything I have felt in my knees in the last year now make sense. The explanations are illustrated in details, I can now recite the ligaments and tendons by their names. It provides a rehab workout, but be careful if your knees are very bad, you need to take things slowly.
It's also the first surgeon that I see who advocates rehab WITHOUT surgery, and also advises on alternative medicines and relaxation.

This is a very good book. I haven't had time to read it all as yet or to do all the exercises, but whatever I have read was logical and clear, and the exercises I have done are helpful for my knee pain. It was recommended by a friend who literally lives by it.

Really informative book. So pleased to have this reference guide to help me to manage the early stages of osteoarthritis and hopefully prevent further damage accelerating. Easy to understand and lots of practical advice.
