Avoiding Knee Surgery

If you want to avoid knee surgery and heal your injury naturally, then read this!

There are some facts one should know about healing knee injuries without surgery. In most cases of knee injuries, there is a weakening of the tendons or ligaments supporting the knee. Sometimes there is even a tear. Usually this is described as a partial tear. This also means that whatever is partially torn is also partially attached. The patient's best option is always to first try to and get these areas which are damaged to repair themselves.

The best way to do this: Prolotherapy.
Prolotherapy works by stimulating the body's healing system, therefore making this a natural way to get better. The technique involves the injection of various solutions that cause a mild inflammatory response that turns on the healing process. The growth of new ligament and tendon tissue is then stimulated. Prolotherapy can be done exactly where the ligaments or tendons attach and insert, and thereby stimulate the ligament on both ends to proliferate and strengthen.

The ligaments and tendons produced after Prolotherapy appear much the same as normal tissues, except that they are thicker, stronger, and contain fibers of varying thickness.

Many patients have avoided surgery using Prolotherapy. Common knee injuries include the ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament), the medial or lateral collateral ligaments, strained muscles insertions (tendons), pain from a torn meniscus and even chondromalacia (soreness under the knee cap).

In addition many other knee problems and pains have been fixed using Prolotherapy.

The best advice is to try a non-surgical approach to your injury by trying Prolotherapy first.
