Knee Surgery Alternatives for Knee Pain and Knee Arthritis

Knee Arthritis

Knee arthritis or degenerative osteoarthritis include genetic components, trauma induced, and even post-surgical arthritis. Trauma and surgery combined yields often an accelerated progression of degenerative osteoarthritis. However, traditional medicine, such as surgery does not alter the progressive nature of degenerative arthritis. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, corticosteroids (cortisone), Hyaluronic acid injections, physical therapy, and knee surgery also do not alter the progression of knee degenerative osteoarthritis.

Knee Pain and Knee Arthritis Treatments

Traditional treatment measures such as anti-inflammatory arthritis medications have not been shown to slow down the arthritis degenerative process. Joint injections with cortisone or lubricants also have not been able to show the long term benefits on arresting the development of degenerative arthritis. The knee is the most frequent joint encountered. Unsurprisingly, the number of total joint surgeries performed has the highest frequency for total knee joint replacement.

It is not uncommon for both knees to be affected with degenerative arthritis. Women have smaller joint surface area than men, and thus biomechanical forces are more directed and overload the joint in women greater as weight gain occurs. The addition of multiple joints on one extremity such as the hip and knee are not infrequent, especially if prior trauma occurred.
