Ron is involved in numerous charitable and humanitarian initiatives. He began his career in physical therapy when his commitment to non-violence led him to it instead of joining the military during the Vietnam War.


Ron Clinton has pooled his over 4 decades of clinical practice with his education and the science of rehabilitative medicine to offer consumers with a truly practical and comprehensive document on knee pain. More importantly and specifically, the “52 Tips to Self Manage Knee Pain” is written in a manner for all to consume – and apply – with ease. Consumers of this booklet may range from experienced clinicians, hoping to improve their educational points, to patients with knee pain themselves. This manuscript informs the reader and respectfully considers all angles of “why”: more function, higher quality of life, less risk, and lower expense. Readers benefit in two additional, unexpected ways through this resource. The first is the many misconceptions and myths that are clearly debunked – providing all of us with the “what to do”, but also unveiling what is hype and unproven. The second is that these 52 tips are about knee pain, yet persons with back pain, facing surgical recommendations, can also benefit from more than half of the applications found within.
As a Fellow of the American Physical Therapy Association, internationally-invited speaker, author, practice owner and clinician for more than three decades myself – my patients and colleagues will benefit from Mr. Clinton’s work for years to come!
