Considering Knee Replacement Surgery? Be Sure To Do Your Research Before Going Under the Knife: Part Two
Safe and Natural Alternatives To Knee Replacement
The great thing about alternatives to knee replacement surgery are that they are historically proven. These procedures have not been working for longer than “traditional” medicine, like a total knee replacement.
Believe it or not the first total knee replacement surgery was done in 1968…that’s only 50 years ago.
Contrast that with alternative medical procedures like acupuncture that has been around for 3,000 years. Or homeopathy that has been successfully used for over 200 years. Or chiropractic, which is over 100 years old. And finally the “baby” of the group: Physical therapy has been in practice for nearly 80 years.
Physical therapy has shown some great results with chronic knee pain caused by arthritis. The knees were designed to move, not stay bent for long periods of inactivity, and physical therapy helps you get your knees moving.
Along with physical therapy, viscosupplementation is an amazing alternative procedure that helps lubricate rusty knee joints.
In an arthritic knee, the fluid has “dried up” allowing the cartilage to breakdown which cause pain, swelling and damage to the knee joint. To treat this, Hyaluronic acid can be injected directly into your knee joint to mimic the lubricating substance (synovial fluid) that occurs naturally in your knee. Think of this treatment as applying oil to a squeaky hinge so the door can move freely again.
Interestingly, viscosupplementation is covered by Medicare and most other major medical insurance companies but only for the knee joint – which is great news for you.
And remember, this a supplement, not a medication like cortisone, so there are rarely any harmful side effects.

Use Your Body’s Own Medicine and Healing Factors
Here’s another fantastic alternative to knee surgery that you may not know about. It can eliminate the need, or prolong the need for surgery, and some surgeons actually advise patients to try this before opting for surgery. You see, once you get surgery, there’s no going back. Other options are automatically off the table. With this alternative (as well as the others you’ve seen), all options remain open to you.
This natural alternative is called regenerative orthopedics, and it uses your body’s own stem cells to heal itself. This is truly cutting edge and scientifically proven. It is the absolute best course of treatment for your knee pain, plus it’s safe… it’s natural… and thoroughly FDA approved.
And it’s available to you right now to relieve your stiffness, aches, pains… and repair cartilage, ligament or tendon tears without drugs or surgery.
So whether you’re suffering from tendonitis, arthritis, inflammation, tears or other damage, a stem cell treatment could finally provide the healing and pain relief you’ve been searching for.
