The American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons shares with us...
"Arthroscopy involves a surgeon making a small incision in your knee and irrigating and removing loose pieces of cartilage. In the arthritic knee, there is a very limited role for an arthroscopy.
Results of a “clean out” or a “wash out” are unpredictable at best and should be avoided.
Substantial rigorous research demonstrates that arthroscopic debridement and/or lavage for knee Osteoarthritis(OA) is no better than sham or placebo for knee OA and has harms for some patients.
40 Million Adults in the U.S. have knee pain, mostly OA. Annual direct and indirect costs = $89 billion."
Conservative treatment with Mechanincal Motion Therapy may be able to help many OA knee patients.
Knee pain is a very common complaint and an advanced technology called Mechanical Motion Therapy has been a proven treatment process because it combines comfortable impact therapy and our normal joint mechanics!
