If you have ever experienced knee pain, you know how frustrating it is to find a solution to this common problem.
Studies from both the New England Journal of Medicine as well as the British Medical Journal that looked at 40 years of the meniscus and other surgeries for knees. These retrospective papers show that these efforts have not improved people’s knees and may have resulted in many secondary surgeries and knee replacements years later. Basically, long term, this approach shows little benefit to the patient when compared to physical therapy alone.
Years later, it is now understood that pain and motion are part of the same problem when it comes to lower back pain and often knee pain sufferers have back problems as well.
Actually, the systems of movement are all integrated requiring an integrated approach to care, instead of the current specialist – therapist – surgery model that has been practiced for years.
The video below discusses other options to care including the chiropractic sports medicine option many people are now choosing first because the medical literature supports conservative care instead of the interventional model most of us have grown up with.
