So... you have enjoyed the good fortune of playing your favorite sport for the better part of your life in relatively good health with only a few minor injuries to speak of. All of a sudden, you sustained a torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) with no prior warning signs from your body. Now what? How do you fully recover so that you can get back to the active lifestyle you love so much in an efficient and effective way?
In this book, the author gives a vivid overview of his own personal experience with ACL reconstruction. He highlights the key insights he learned on his road to recovery for the benefit of any reader who wishes to make a speedy and complete recovery from an ACL tear. The author details the entire process of surgical repair and rehabilitation in a deliberate step by step fashion, while maintaining a conversational and friendly tone.
To facilitate the reader's understanding of ACL injuries, the author delves into a deep description of human knee anatomy, and explains it in colloquial terms that most everyone can understand. "In Kneed of Repair" is replete with illustrations, photos, and videos that accompany its descriptive text. It serves as a well informed resource to the reader on issues such as what to buy, what rehab exercises to do, and what to consume to help expedite recovery.
The overarching motive for this book is to provide immense value to its reader in the form of quality information on ACL reconstruction that is readily digestible. The information contained in this book may also be used by the reader to facilitate the recovery of a loved one. Being an active individual himself, Chuba understands the frustration that comes with an ACL injury, and would like nothing more than to help as many people as possible rise from the ashes of this injury in perhaps better form than ever.

excellent resource for all readers
“In Kneed of Repair” is a book which comprehensively details the process and struggles (mental and physical) of recovering from an ACL tear. My own surgery was 3 weeks ago as of this review, and I still find myself referring to this book to continue my understanding of the healing process. I’m thankful that it was available to me, and have found that all the information in this book accurately reflects my own experience with all the medical professionals I’ve worked with so far.
