Safe, Non-Surgical Solutions for Treating Knee Pain

If you’re suffering from knee pain, you’re certainly not alone. From osteoarthritis to injury to wear-and-tear, it affects millions of people every day. In fact, the prevalence of knee pain is an estimated 19% of the population. And as you get older, you’re more likely to suffer. It’s no wonder why knee surgery is one of the most common operating procedures in the US.

Yet today, more healthcare professionals question the abundance of knee surgery. A 2013 study compared two-year outcomes of patients who received surgery versus a placebo group, receiving a “sham” procedure. The authors concluded that there was “no significant between group changes.” Meaning – those who received a fake procedure were no better off than the group with real knee surgery.

Luckily, there are solutions – no surgery or pills required. Read on for Atlanta Medical Clinic’s treatment for patients with knee pain.
