The X10 Meta-Blog

We call it a “Meta-Blog.” We step back and give you a broad perspective on all aspects of knee health. We cover knee surgery and recovery as with this article on your gait after knee replacement.

In this one-of-a-kind blog we gather together great thinkers, doers, and writers. All our work is related to Knee Surgery, Recovery, Preparation, Care, Success and Failure. Meet physical therapists, coaches, surgeons, patients, and as many smart people as we can gather to create useful articles for you. This is for you if you have a surgery upcoming, or in the rear-view mirror. Or maybe you just want to take care of your knees to avoid surgery. Executive Editor: PJ Ewing
