Want a secret or two on how to stay injury free?
That way you can stay on your feet and not sidelined.
If you are like most, losing your mobility
with your career and family life would spell doom.
Well, check this out. Back in 1992 I was
a sophomore LB…Â playing against the OSU Buckeyes
who I have affectionately called the Cluck-eyes.
Yeah, yeah, we lost that game.
The next week we went up to Wisconsin
to play the Badgers.Â Our team
was so pumped for the Clucks that we had
nothing left to give the next week.
We threw a new wrinkle at them and
lined me up at NOSE guard. And
the first three plays I made every tackle.
Then it happened. Their offense ran
a toss sweep to my right and as I pursued the
ball carrier -Â a five foot nothing
little wide receiver appeared outta no where
and dove for my knee cap.
Luckily, I didnt hear anything snap. But it
hurt like hell.Â I sucked it up and continued to
But a pop warner player would have been
better in my spot that game.
Since I couldnt plant on my one “wheel”
big ‘ole # 75 had his way with me.
I did manage to snag an interception. It was thrown
right into my breadbasket.Â After that, I hobbled off the field and
sat with a ice pack taped to my knee for the remainder
of the game.
To make a long story longer…
That next week we faced East Carolina and I made
it my mission to do everything in my power to
be ready for it… when the average joe would have
Two things I did:
1) I never missed an ice treatment with the training staff.
2) I performed specific exercises my strength coach
and doctors agreed upon – to strengthen the
medial collateral ligament and muscles
Notice how their advice was NOT to rest it.
The other day I thumbed through Dr. Bill’s “How
to Avoid Knee Surgery” manual – the same
one you can get here … End Knee Pain.
… I recalled performing many of his exercises
to rehabilitate my strained knee.Â I mean, if you
were to go one by one – a nod here – a nod there,
those exercises were apart of my knee rehab program.
As it turns out these same exercises keep people from
going under the knife.Â Pretty fascinating.
Well, to wrap up my story …
That next week I was about 75% but I told the coaches
I was 95%.Â They gave me the green light and I filled in
on run plays and goal line where I could.
Though you may not play football – you live life
and injuries happen all the time; people slip on ice, make a
wrong turn mowing the grass … and so on and so on.
Don’t let knee injuries and joint pain keep you
down.Â Do somehting about it. Get the right exercises
and instruction to keep you on your feet, pain free.
And even if you dont have knee pain right now,
get this book to have on the shelf for family members
or future injuries… so you dont have to bother
digging up this email.
Do it now, my friend.
