When you’ve got knee pain, you may as well be a walking dollar sign. Because the moment you come limping in the door, specialists are sure of one thing.
You’re not there to read the magazines in their waiting room.
You’re there because you TRUST these “expert” docs to do right by you and fix your aching joints.
But new research reveals the ugly truth. You’ve probably placed your trust in the wrong person.
Because arthroscopic knee surgery… especially the meniscus… WON’T do much for you at all.
Knee surgery swindle leaves you poor & in pain
Far too many specialists live to push surgery – it’s how they make bank, after all.
But the new study shows how one of the MOST common operations they do on knees is an out-and-out scam.
The knee surgery DOESN’T work… WON’T help… and most people SHOULDN’T get it!
Think that’s bad?
It is. But hold onto your kneecaps, because it gets even worse.
This study might be “new,” but the data is from 10 earlier reports. It’s a review of years of research that’s already been published in some of today’s top medical journals.
This information is already out there… so these docs 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. Knee surgery is no better than drugs or physical therapy for improving physical function, and only slightly better than either for pain relief.
REAL knee pain RELIEF – no drugs, no operations
In other words, there’s no real benefit to knee surgery at all for most people (with the possible exception of those who have knee pain without arthritis, who may see a slightly bigger benefit).
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 even helps many people.
But it isn’t your only one. 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.
