The surgeon will look you straight in the eye and make a solemn promise. “I will fix this.”
And you’ll believe him, too… because you’ll WANT to. After all, you’re in so much knee pain that being sliced for knee surgery to relieve it seems like a reasonable option.
You don’t know what else to do. You’re desperate, and that’s what brought you to the surgeon in the first place. So you believe him. What other choice do you have?
But here’s the truth. You DO have a choice. One that works for a lot of folks. And in a moment, I’m going to share it with you.
You won’t hear about this alternative option to knee surgery from a surgeon, of course. Because it could put him out of work.
But first, let me give you the scoop on why going under the knife isn’t always a good idea for knee pain. In fact, it’s often the worst idea of all.
Knee surgery scam leaves you poor and still in pain
Far too many specialists live to push surgery these days.
The profession may not have started out that way. But that’s where things have ended up. And at this point, it’s how they make the cash to pay for the lifestyle they’ve all become addicted to.
And now a disturbing study has revealed how one of the MOST common operations they do on knees is really nothing more than an out-and-out scam.
The knee surgery doesn’t typically work. It won’t help ease the knee pain in the majority of cases. And MOST people shouldn’t get it.
Think that’s bad? You’re right, it is. But hold onto your kneecaps because it gets even worse.
It’s just one study, but it crunches the data from 10 earlier reports on knee surgery. It’s a careful and concise review of years and years of research that’s already been published in some of today’s top medical journals.
In other words, this information is out there. And it has been for YEARS. So these surgeons KNOW arthroscopic meniscus operations won’t help most people. Yet they keep right on doing them anyway.
Gotta keep the gravy train rolling!
But now, the jig is up. This form of knee surgery is no better than drugs or physical therapy for improving physical function. And it’s only slightly better than either for pain relief.
Ditch the drugs and surgery for REAL RELIEF
In other words, there’s no real benefit to arthroscopic meniscus knee surgery for most people. The only possible exception is folks who have knee pain without arthritis. In some of those cases, they may see a slightly bigger benefit.
The result? The researchers behind the new study are urging patients with knee pain to try physiotherapy first.
And sure, it’s a FAR better option than knee surgery. And it does help many people. But it isn’t your only other choice. And it isn’t always your best one either.
You can start with chondroitin, even combining it with physiotherapy if you prefer. One study found it helped nearly six out of 10 patients, improving…
- walking ability
The downside is it can take several months before the chondroitin kicks in. In the meantime, you’ll need a backup plan for dealing with the pain.
You can try a topical pain-reliever based on proven natural superstars such as menthol and capsaicin. Or ask your doctor about prolotherapy.
This “sugar water” treatment is practically a miracle for some folks battling knee pain. It has even been shown to outperform drugs and physical therapy in some cases. It could help you avoid knee surgery. Click here for all the details on how it works.
