What are the alternatives to total knee replacement surgery?josh
Before deciding on a surgical solution to your knee problems, you might want to consider the alternatives. They include trying to lose weight to lessen the stress on your knees, low-impact exercise, careful use of pain medication including cortisone shots, and cartilage regeneration, which replaces the cushion between your bone endings. Radiofrequency ablation is another option. This minimally invasive procedure involves using an electric current from a radio wave to heat up a small area of nerve tissue to stop it from sending pain signals.
