No sugar coating here. You’ll happily be escorted gently from marketing hype to reality. I want you to go into the surgery as well informed as possible

I receive no income from the manufacturers or distributors of knee replacement implants or designs. I do not work for any facility nor am I compensated by any surgeon or surgical group involved in knee replacements. I also do not accept ads by any parties involved in the surgical implantation of knee replacements.

I am a physical therapist by trade for the past 25 years and have worked with hundreds of patients recovering from knee replacement surgery.  I have a few books available Fast Track Your Recovery From A Total Knee Replacement: How to Eliminate Pain and Pain Medicine The Quickest Way Possible, a guide to the system I developed for my own patients which allowed them to recovery more quickly than anything I had been taught to use in college; and Color and Laugh Your Way  Through Knee Replacement Recovery, which is a coloring book with 20 irreverently humorous illustrations chronicling the reality of the knee replacement journey. I always remember to thank my Father’s Irish sense of humor for that gift to the knee replacement world.  You can also now get a downloadable PDF of my book and a downloadable PDF of the Manual previously only available with purchase of the FLEX bar, a convenient leverage tool to assist in the knee range of motion recovery.

Regardless of whether or not you ever choose to buy one of my products, the information given reflects my opinion and is provided to give you a deeper understanding than most of the “vanilla” knee replacement information available.

True Dangers and Pitfalls Explained

My purpose in creating this site is to give you a much deeper level of understanding than can be obtained from the plain vanilla information that masks the true dangers and pitfalls of such an important surgery. Taking a knife to your God-given knee is an act that cannot be undone and should not be undertaken lightly. I want you to know all the inside Intel that I personally use to counsel friends and family.

On this site I delve into the demographics, the trends, the marketing hype and the little known shenanigans that occurs behind the scenes by the big implant companies. Three quarter of a million knee replacement surgeries are performed yearly in the United States alone and it is Big Money. Don’t let them take you for a ride at your expense!

knee surgery recovery ManualFor those who are a bit shy about trying my method, the recently released No Days To Waste Exercise Manual goes into slightly greater detail than the book outlining the exact step-by-step procedure I use with my patients.  Click here to get the manual.

Take advantage of the free PDF regarding the 7 Things Your Surgeon Won’t Tell You Unless You Know To Ask because it contains most of the important information in one easy read rather than scattered about in various posts and can be used as a handy reference.

And finally, I have spent the last year adding to my expertise by becoming a Certified FDN Practitioner and a level one certified Precision Nutrition Counselor. Expect to hear much more from me on how you can use nutrition and lifestyle changes to AVOID a knee replacement in the first place.

I welcome your comments and suggestions to make this site even better. At times people have had problems finding the bonus freebies from my book. Please use the contact me tab rather than leaving a comment and I will be able to quickly get that information to you.

Michelle Stiles called "the no nonsense" therapist, by her patients, created a company called Cowboy Up Recovery after recognizing the bankruptcy of the present medical model. Too many people regard conventional medical wisdom as gospel, ignoring the subversive influences of Big Pharma and Big Medicine. She believes, Americans in general are being trained from an early age to defer to experts in numerous areas of life and losing the impulses for self-responsibility and self-reliance in the process. Over-diagnosis and over-medicating has become endemic. While thankful for the best miracles of modern medicine, she encourages people of all persuasions to listen to their bodies and seek out answers to maintain not just an absence of disease but optimal health. Her advice is: Cowboy Up, no one cares more about your health than you do.
