So many exercise programs come with the caveat “consult your doctor before engaging in any new activity”, and the safe-but-simple “do not try to train through an injury”.

Which is all very well and good for someone in fabulous health who sprained an ankle while running and can just wait a bit, but what about those of us carrying…

  • long-term injuries
  • recurring injuries
  • or just plain unfixable physical disabilities?

That’s where physiotherapist Scott Hogan comes in. The subtitle line goes:

❝A Science-Based Guide to Healing Painful Joints, Preventing Injuries, and Rebuilding Your Body❞

…but he does also recognize that there are some things that won’t bounce back.

On the other hand… There are a lot of things that get written off by doctors as “here’s some ibuprofen” that, with consistent mindful training, could actually be fixed.

Hogan delivers again and again in this latter category! You’ll see on Amazon that the book has thousands of 4- and 5-star ratings and many glowing reviews, and it’s for a reason or three:

  • The book first lays a foundational knowledge of the most common injuries likely to impede us from training
  • It goes on to give step-by-step corrective exercises to guide your body through healing itself. Your body is trying to heal itself anyway; you might as well help it accomplish that!
  • It finishes up with a comprehensive (and essential) guide to train for the strength and mobility that will help you avoid future problems.

In short: a potentially life-changing book if you have some (likely back- or joint-related) problem that needs overcoming!

And if you don’t? An excellent pre-emptive guide all the same. This is definitely one of those “an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure” things.
