The Best Treatment for Torn Meniscus of the Knee

As part 2 of avoiding knee surgery, I want to report on a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine. It compared arthroscopic surgery, which is undergone by 465,000 patients in the U.S. each year, to physical therapy without surgery. There was no difference in the functional status and pain, 6 months after the onset of the study. Once again, Prolotherapy was not included in the study, but the reported results by prolotherapists are better than either of these therapies. See the NEJM, May 2, 2013 issue and go to getprolo.com for more info. Celebration of Health Association website
