Musculoskeletal conditions are the #1 reason for doctor visits among Americans. No one knows the concerns of patients afflicted with these bone, muscle, and joint issues better than Dr. Nicholas DiNubile. As the orthopedist to the Philadelphia 76ers, he presented his plan for treating and preventing general pain without surgery or drugs in his first book, FrameWork. Now, in the second installment of his Active for Life series, Dr. DiNubile turns his attention to the estimated 21 million Americans who suffer from chronic knee pain. Beginning with an in-depth look at the causes of common knee injuries, Dr. DiNubile provides diagnostic tools for assessing pain. His 7-step plan for treating the injury, rehabilitating the area, eating to aid healing, and protecting the knee allow you to continue enjoying your favorite activities. Knee pain and injury don't have to mean the end of an active lifestyle. All it takes is a balanced, customized program designed to address patient-specific needs. FrameWork for the Knees provides anyone suffering from these issues with the tools to be active for life.

On the upside, for knee injury, fairly general, comprehensive look at the types of treatment available, and the plusses and minuses of each. On the downside, I found the book overly complex, with the author seeming to have great difficulty getting to the point. Definitely not the best selection for those with knee arthritis symptoms.

I found this book helpful. I tore my meniscus and saw three different doctors who gave different reasons it tore and recommended a variety of treatments and even surgery.

What I liked about this book is that it explained how some knee injuries are due to not anything specific..just plain old aging and wearing out of the knees. And that surgery is not the only answer.

I liked the strengthening exercises. I found them useful and do-able.

Basically nothing can be done to fix your knee once you have damaged it in any way. You will lose mobility and eventually get arthritis. That is basically what this book is about.

Terrible book - fragmented - no specific recommendations

Lots of exercises to strengthen the knee

As a book, it's clunky: filled with stories and sidebar-type segments that clutter the text, poor formating, unusual chapter titles. However, the book does contain some useful information and a large section on exercises.

Comprehensive. It tells about possible problems and gives a wide variety of exercises to combat them.
