There are at least 36 million people running regularly in the United States with almost 10 million logging over 100 days a year.¹ And a lot of these folks get hurt.
Maybe this is you.
Your knee hurts, but it’s hard to pinpoint the cause.
Sometimes it hurts under your kneecap and other times around your knee. Maybe you cannot recall an injury or specific event that led to your discomfort.
Your knee hurts when you walk or run and sometimes it hurts if you simply sit still too long.
You’ve iced it, stretched it, heated it, rubbed it and taken more Aleve or Advil than you’d like to admit.
But, the truth is your knee still hurts and the reason why is often called Runner’s Knee or Runner’s Knee syndrome. PatelloFemoral Pain Syndrome (PFPS) or Chondromalacia are other common terms to describe this issue.

For over three decades I’ve worked in the sports and orthopedic world, and one of the most common questions I hear is “How I can get better and run again?”. Through my blog, I was only able to scratch the surface of answering that question. It’s just too big of a topic to tackle in a blog.

I am happy to report that I have fully recovered from CRPS (Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome) and patellofemoral pain, my knees are strong again and I am back to cycling 5-6 days a week and some light running. I still incorporate many of the exercises in my core strength routine and my load tolerance allows me to do 1 legged squats no problem. I even do pylometrics with jump squats occasionally.
Doug, your Ebook is tremendous and the principles of rehab have given me everything I need to keep my knees healthy. I now know exactly what to do when I push it a little too much.
Thanks for making your book available to everyone. I have recommended it to many of my friends with patell0femoral pain.

A Step-by-Step Process:
- How to perform up to 11 different tests to determine your body’s true strength and flexibility. By gathering data first, you start based off your current capabilities.
- Specific exercises for your knee PLUS your hips, legs, and ankles. This comprehensive approach will strengthen your joints and surrounding muscles to handle the activities of an active lifestyle.
- Visual and audio demonstrations teaching you HOW to do the exercises we talk about. The detailed instruction helps ensure accurate execution of the exercises so you receive the maximum benefit from each one (videos are delivered via the Internet; no physical product will be be shipped).
- Exercises that are too easy for you aren’t effective, so we walk you through progressing or “edging.” As you become stronger, the exercises can be adjusted to meet your capabilities.

Frequently Asked Questions
If I have questions while I am working through the program in the book, who do I contact?
For more personal assistance, contact Laurie Kertz.
- Call Laurie at 512-394-4722 to set up a consultation or email her here.
Do I need any special equipment to benefit from the information in the book?
- There is a lot of very helpful information in the book that does not have anything to do with equipment nor require any equipment. But, from working with thousands of people with painful knees, I have found certain pieces of equipment to be very useful and effective for both testing and exercise purposes. I suggest these items in the book. I have no financial relationship with any of the companies that sell the equipment. Some gyms offer the equipment I suggest and others may have substitution options. While the equipment items I suggest are not required and some of my former clients have successfully used my principles in a gym environment, what I think works the best is to use the equipment I suggest in the book.
Why an e-book?
This 240 page e-book filled with videos, web links, and high quality photos was created electronically on purpose. Paper limits our ability to quickly and easily share with you the drills, tests, and equipment needed for recovery. The book is downloaded in .pdf format. You will need Adobe Reader to view the book and an Internet connection to view the videos.
Is there a maximum number of times I can download or open the book?
No, after purchasing the book you will not be restricted in the number of times you open it.
I can’t download the book. What do I do?
Make sure you are not on a network that has security settings preventing downloading files from websites with “https” in the web address. Most work environments will block downloads from secure sites. And sometimes the default setting in internet browsers such as Internet Explorer and Firefox will prevent downloading as well.
How does The Runner’s Knee Bible differ from the 90 Day Knee Arthritis Remedy?
There is some overlap between the two books because the underlying problem in each case is very similar but The Runner’s Knee Bible has approximately 25% more material devoted to re-training the injured runner as well as specific content for runners.
Does the book address how to help a meniscus tear?
No. The book is for people who enjoy running and have Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome or Runner’s Knee.
