Summary Dr. Thomas Vangsness fearlessly debunks myths about so-called prescriptive diet and exercise regimens that can "cure" arthritis. Because while you can't cure it, you can manage it and dramatically improve your life. Dr. Vangsness provides practical advice culled from his years working with star collegiate athletes, who are often the guinea pigs in uncovering the best practices for dealing with injuries and deterioration of the body's joints. Dr. Vangsness is a medical advisor on the cutting-edge of arthritis research, and his book reveals the latest developments in stem cell generated cartilage. Through a unique, self-administered, and easy-to-follow test, readers will be guided toward one of three arthritis-managing regimens. They will learn that while genetics play a large role in determining who will suffer from arthritis, and even how severely, there are strategies for staying active, pain-free, and healthy no matter who you are.
