Injury Rehab with Resistance Bands

By Karl Knopf

Comprehensive resistance band program for recovering from injury and staying pain-free and healthy


The ultimate tool for getting in shape or recovering from a painful setback, the resistance band is inexpensive, effective, and portable. With this simple device, readers can rehabilitate injuries on any party of the body— all from the comfort of home. Injury Rehab with Resistance Bands offers 100 safe and easy exercises that teach readers of all fitness levels how to target the body’s trouble spots and recover quickly and safely.
Divided into targeted chapters that each address a specific body part—including ankles, knees, hips, back, shoulders, elbows, wrists, neck, and more—this wide-reaching workbook offers detailed anatomical information and matching exercises to help readers, regardless of where they are injured.


The resistance band is the perfect tool for rehab since it’s light, easy to adjust, and adds resistance in multiple directions—something free weights and machines cannot do. Whether trying to reduce pain, transform troublesome muscles, or get back in the game, Injury Rehab with Resistance Bands provides the most comprehensive rehab plan for any injury.
