I've read a few 'knee' books lately and all the information
begins to look similar, which isn't necessarily bad, it
reinforces and verifies the exercises, opinions
on what causes what, treatments and useful medicines.

I like the 'Knee Crisis Handbook' because indeed it does
have a handbook style orientation and a lot of info in one
place: you can go to a specific chapter without having to read
the whole book, or you can avoid a chapter -'how to prepare for
surgery', if that isn't what you're up to.

Apr 12, 2008 May rated it 4 of 5 stars Recommends it for: anyone experiencing knee pain
The most informative book I've found on knee pain. There were a lot of light bulb moments contained within. I don't use the exercises in it (I use Core Performance), but it was a good read just for understanding my knees (there's even a special chapter on concerns for women) and what to expect from my doctor/therapist.
A focus on treating the person, not only the knee. Chapter topics include preventing knee injuries, the most common knee problems, surgery, physical therapy & exercises, complementary approaches (such as herbs & acupuncture).
Good resource for people with knee problems, how to prevent pain and further injury, physical theraphy chapter, and more.
Great book if you're rehabbing a knee injury or looking for tips on how to prevent one. Great PT exercises.
