If you're looking down at your arthritic knee and seeing only a worn-out joint with eroding cartilage, you're thinking about your knee the wrong way. There are two problems with this line of thinking. First of all, the structural changes that commonly take place in arthritis, things such as cartilage loss, meniscus tears, and bone spurs, can all be found in people with no knee pain. Consider the study that looked at 319 subjects between the ages of 25 and 74 with knee arthritis on x-ray - and found that only 47% had knee pain. Put another way, 53% of these people were walking around with knee arthritis and no pain. Yet another study looked at 49 subjects over the age of 45 with no knee pain or arthritis, and found that 76% of them had meniscus tears! The second problem with focusing on the structural changes in knee arthritis is trying to figure out what's causing your pain. Most of the numerous structures in your knee have nerve pain fibers going to them, so good luck trying to pinpoint which one(s) are the exact source of your pain. In fact, about the only knee structure we can safely rule out is the articular cartilage that can be seen wearing out on x-rays! Knee cartilage itself actually has no pain fibers going to it, and therefore cannot produce any pain. So what now? Treat Your Own Knee Arthritis takes a new approach to an old problem. Instead of worrying about structural problems (that studies show people can live just fine with) you will learn how to fix the functional problems found in knees with arthritis. And as the research shows again and again, if you improve functions such as the strength and proprioception of your knee, the pain goes away. Based entirely on randomized controlled trials, Treat Your Own Knee Arthritis is a simple, yet effective program that can be done in the privacy of your home with minimal cost or equipment. Exercise sheets are also provided to help guide you step-by-step through a six-week program.

Spinal stenosis usually brings to mind images of bone spurs, pinched nerves, a wornout spine and pain. However few people know that scientific studies have shown up to 69% of people over the age of 55 to have spinal stenosis on an MRI exam, but no pain. Clearly radiographic pictures of one's spine do not tell the whole tale, as there are many people that are able to live pain-free with spinal stenosis. But if having a horrible looking spine on an MRI doesn't necessarily mean you'll have pain, then what does? Well, consider the study that checked out the back muscles of spinal stenosis patients with an EMG - and found that 17 out of 22 of them had abnormalities! Apparently there are other factors involved that might determine if one will have pain or not. Treat Your Own Spinal Stenosis will answer these kinds of questions and more. It will teach you what spinal stenosis is and how it got there. Then, you will learn what you can do about it by putting your spine through a series of "Tune-Ups." Based en rely on randomized controlled trials, Treat Your Own Spinal Stenosis is a simple, yet effective program that can be done in the privacy of your home with minimal cost or equipment. Exercise sheets are included to help guide you step-by-step through a sixweek program.

In 2015, there were roughly 10.4 million patient visits to doctors' offices because of common knee injuries such as fractures, dislocations, sprains, and ligament tears. It is one of the most common problems affecting the muscles and joints of the body after back and neck pain, and is the most common site of pain and disability in the upper and lower pain and disability in the upper and lower limbs. The knee is often one of the most problematic areas of the body, whether you're focused on long distance running, sports that require plenty of cutting and sharp lateral movement, heavy lifting, or any activity that's hard on the legs. The wellbeing of your knees and the muscles around them are an essential part of your fitness goals, even if keeping them strong and supple isn’t necessarily part of your program. Even people who are not involved in heavy fitness activities can develop knee pain. The truth is that if you’ve never felt any kind of knee pain whatsoever, the chances are good that as you grow older, you will. Our bodies tend to lose muscle and bone mass as we age, and we become more susceptible to the aches and pains that may result. When we injure the knee in some way, it naturally stops working as it should. It won’t bend fully or pull quite as forcefully. That makes it hard to pick something up from the floor or pull something down from overhead. Spending hours in front of the computer becomes torture. Lifting groceries out of the car and carrying them into the house becomes an ordeal. New grandparents can’t stand up comfortably to hold the baby. But neither the weakness nor the pain is inevitable. The knee can be fixed, and the pain can go away. First, there’s a systematic way to cure the weakness and ends the pain. But there’s also a way to prevent problems to begin with, so that you never have to lose the strength, stability, and range of motion of the knee at all. In Fix My Knee, George Demirakos shows readers how to do both. For anyone with knees, this book will show you how to keep them healthy and strong, and what to do when things go wrong.
