Seeking alternatives to surgery for knee osteoarthritis.

Posted , 2 users are following.

I am a 66 year old male and injured my knee 12 months ago. An MRI shows a torn menisus and ACL and advanced osteoarthritis. I am still awaiting a surgical consult. There is little pain or stiffness but my knee will no longer support me. I am not overweight but the knee folds backwards when I attempt to walk. Are there alternatives to surgery for joint support? Thanks.

    Injuries such as fracture is dangerous and one must consult doctors or organizations.There are many organizations which would come up with various technologies and therapies like prp injections,and trigger point injections to help you out

    I was diagnosed for a hip surgery sometime back and avoided it by going through a stem cell therapy treatmentprocess. I had to make frequent visits to the clinc which was situated close by to where I lived in Florida, So it was quite convenient. I went through a treatment process of about four months and it has reduced my pains and condition almost completely. It actually worked for me and hope it can work for you as well.
