Thinking Knee Surgery?

Chiropractic: Knee Surgery May Not Offer Some Patients More Benefit Than Conservative Care. 
A new analysis has found that arthroscopic knee surgery for the treatment of age-related meniscus tears in middle-aged individuals offers no greater benefit than can be provided by more conservative care. The authors of the analysis recommend this category of patients try conservative measures before considering surgery. Chiropractic care would be a good conservative approach, as Chiropractors often treat these types of injuries with specific adjustments, physiotherapies, and exercises.
