You Deserve A Better Knee Recovery Option

Did you know that knee pain is the most common injury afflicting runners?

That’s a sad reality made worse due to conventional treatments like invasive surgeries that treat symptoms instead of addressing underlying causes. And to add insult to injury, those treatments can cost thousands of dollars for average care.

I’ve seen that unfortunate scenario play out countless times throughout my 15 year career as a Physical Therapist. That’s why I started my holistic physical therapy practice for athletes—especially runners—10 years ago. And that’s why I had to create this program for you—runners like you deserve a better option.

Why I Had to Create This Program (And Why It Works)

I love running as much as my patients do. I help as many as I can at my practice. But over the years, I felt compelled to do more to help more runners return to the activity they so enjoy. With the encouragement of my patients behind me, I transformed my hands-on knee recovery methodology into this comprehensive program.

Unlike conventional methods that take an isolated and incomplete approach, my program applies a whole-body approach that restores balance to the knee and body. From that stability, my program accelerates the healing process while reinforcing the knee from further injury. The result: a pain-free knee and body capable of improved performance.

I’m proud of the success the program has had on my patients. Here are some of their amazing stories.

Inspiring Comeback Stories (Are You Next?)

Philip registered for the 2013 Alaska Ironman because he was looking for a change. He began training as a way to lose weight, but the more he trained the more we grew to love running. Running became Philip’s way to clear his head and think about what more he wanted out of life.

Unfortunately, Philip developed right knee pain and right plantar fasciitis several months into his training. He tried to push through the pain but eventually had to back off. But instead of dropping out of the Ironman and forsaking his new found love for training, he turned to me to help alleviate his pain and get him going again.

He worked hard on his recovery by diligently following my comprehensive and holistic program. Philip’s hard work paid off—he corrected the imbalances that were causing his pain, thus allowing him to return to training with confidence. He went on to complete the Ironman pain-free, an experience he later told me was life-changing for his physical and mental health and happiness.

Jaime spent the better part of the last decade raising two kids and starting a business. She completely neglected her health during that time, leading her to become overweight, irritable, and plagued with high blood pressure and low energy. On the morning of her 39th birthday, she stood in a mirror and didn’t like what she saw. She vowed to change and decided to complete a half-marathon before her 40th birthday.

The first two months of her training went well, but then the knee pain started. It was a minor ache at first that quickly unbearable. She stopped training and saw her doctor, who told her she had developed patellofermoral—commonly called “runner’s knee.” She was given medications and told to stop running because she wasn’t young anymore.

Undeterred, Jamie tried regular physical therapy. It didn’t help; the pain re-appeared every time she returned to running. Frustrated, she turned to me for help. We applied the full program of natural knee exercises as well as diet and lifestyle changes. We also incorporated yoga and meditation techniques to relax her body and mind, allowing her body to restore its balance. Once the balance was restored, she was able to get back to running without pain.

You can use the same physical therapy strength and mobility exercises, massage and taping techniques, and lifestyle changes to recover from your knee injuries. Don’t let pain stop you from living the life you want, pain-free.

What Other Devoted Runners and Experts Are Saying

“I’m an ultra-runner who has been suffering from Iliotibial (IT) band syndrome since last year. I turned to Manu Kalia for help after many trips to different conventional doctors and physical therapists yielded no results. After he checked my biomechanics, flexibility and alignment, Manu gave me a training plan along with stretches and exercises to do daily. Manu also put me on an herb and an oil massage regimen. Since contacting Manu in December 2013 and applying his recovery program, I am now running pain-free. I highly recommend Manu Kalia and his program to anyone with a knee injury and open mind to using natural fitness and holistic medicine solutions.”

— Nancy Cleveland

“I highly recommend Manu Kalia’s program because it is informed by his exceptional Physical Therapy background and novel approach to healing chronic pain as an Ayruvedic practitioner. As a practicing Physical Therapist for the past 14 years, I've found Manu to be current and cutting edge in his delivery of care. His eastern approach with western medicine background allows for new innovation in treating common day-to-day or chronic pain. Manu was instrumental in my own recovery from knee surgery. His rehabilitation advice involving Ayurvedic herbs and oils helped me avoid prolonged use of harsh opioid-based pain medication. I enthusiastically endorse Manu for his skills as Physical Therapist and as an Ayurvedic Practitioner.”

— Selvan Joseph, Neuro Scientist

“Manu Kalia successfully resolved my left knee issue as well as plantar fasciitis in my right foot. His whole-body treatments and knowledge of physical therapy were the only reason I was able to continue training for and complete my first Ironman race. I finished the race without pain in my left knee and my right foot.”

— Philip Canlas

“Manu’s Build Better Knees program is brilliant! It is the ONLY one that combines physical therapy and eastern philosophies, which are necessary to help you recover faster, improve performance, and prevent running related injuries from returning. Manu does a splendid job at providing you with a user friendly guide to healthy knees.”

— Jenny Someillan, Physical Therapist, Ayurvedic Specialist

“Manu is one of a rare breed of health care professionals who are well versed in both eastern and western approaches to healing. He takes a holistic approach to health/healing and treats the body as a whole instead of providing short term solutions to immediate problems. I have been his client for many years now and can attest to effective skills and expertise in healing knee pain. I highly recommend him and his Build Better Knees program.”

— Harish Venugopal

“Manu is a unique trainer who won't stop until he helps you escape your painful injuries. He’s devoted to putting you on a firm path toward a full recovery so that you can resume the activities you love—running, biking, or anything else. Additionally, Manu’s style and skill put you to ease when you feel helpless from restrictive knee pain. I highly recommend Manu and his program to anyone suffering from knee pain, from athletes to first-time runners to warriors like me.”

— Ravikumar Mohandas

“Manu offers a fantastic alternative to western medicine. The physical therapy combined with holistic medicine such as oils and herbs, have helped tremendously with my running related injuries. I can now continue running and cycling pain-free.”

— Andrew Garcia

“For over 20 years, I trained to become as big and strong as possible. A career change led me to law enforcement where I was forced to run to meet physical fitness standards. After the many years of lifting I was definitely not built to be a runner. The impact from running led to knee pain and swelling, which was later diagnosed as medial meniscal tears in both knees. I opted for the surgical route and had both knees done in the same procedure. Arthroscopic surgery revealed articular cartilage damage to both femur surfaces in addition to the meniscal tears. The articular cartilage was cleaned up and the meniscal tears were cut out.

Having worked and trained in athletics for most of my adult life, I knew from a training standpoint what I needed to do for my rehabilitation but I wanted to make a fast recovery and return to work as quickly as possible. I contacted Manu knowing he had extensive knowledge in Eastern Medicine to bolster his Physical Therapy knowledge. Manu provided me with information on herbal remedies, foods to eat, and foods to stay away from. And after long conversations on healing, he convinced me to stay away from my chronic icing. I took all of his advice and, consequently, returned to work five weeks after having both knees scoped. The second day after returning to work I completed and passed a newly implemented physical fitness test.

Manu possesses a unique blend of knowledge combining Eastern and Western methodologies in a holistic approach to provide the best possible care for his patients. I am completely convinced that without seeking Manu’s expertise and knowledge my recovery would have taken much longer and the results would not have been as dramatic.”

The Run Pain-Free Guarantee

I believe in my Build Better Knees program. If you’re serious about your knee rehabilitation, I’m confident you’ll enjoy great relief from your knee pain by applying the teachings in this program.

If you’re a bit unsure about the program, let me help you out. Try the program for 30 days. If you’re not experiencing a noticeable improvement in your knee pain by then, I’ll promptly refund your money. No questions asked. This guarantee works on the honor system. Please don’t abuse it because that ruins it for everyone.

Everyone’s individual results vary, of course. But if you give this program an honest try, I know it’ll help you get back to your love of running. Work hard on your recovery because better days await!

What Does it Cost?

The average medical insurance deductible can cost around $5000.

Let’s face it, spending thousands of dollars in medical bills doesn’t guarantee that you will be treated by a medical professional whose patients actually get better and stay healthy. Someone who will teach you how to avoid injury, and educate you on the real cause of running-related knee injuries.

Fortunately, even the highest level, Ultra Runner costs a fraction of the price. If you’re on an even lower budget, you can get started for as little as $77.

One More Thing

After working 15 years as a physical therapist, I felt there was something missing in the current medical system. I saw a lot of patients repeatedly coming back into the system, unable to conquer their issues with chronic injuries. I observed that the current medical system unfortunately focused more on treating patients’ symptoms and often neglected their underlying problems.

To treat my patients more effectively, I combined exercise science, physical therapy, and Ayurveda practices, which fundamentally transformed my practice. Using a holistic approach helps patients recover faster, stay healthier, and remain injury-free.

I created Build Better Knees to give people a comprehensive solution that they can use to take care of their knee injuries. I see this program working every day in my practice. With dedication, it will work for you.
