Finally, Non-Invasive Options for Chronic Knee Pain

Options. Doctors love to be able to tell patients they have them. And patients love to hear they have a range of strategies for dealing with an ailment. But when it comes to micro fractures in a knee joint that create chronic pain with osteoarthritis, the treatment options have been limited. They really only included a conservative or radical choice: treat it with anti-inflammatories and troublesome pain medicine or get a complete knee replacement.

“You can have your car in any color you want, as long as it’s black.” Although Henry Ford’s assembly line was a boon to manufacturing and cranked out armies of affordable cars, we’d balk if a dealership told us the same thing today. There are so many options and, after all, it is our car.
