Arthroscopy literally means “look inside”. At one time, about they only “medical” procedure they could perform (I use the term loosely) was a menisectomy (removal of knee cartilage). (What they didn’t tell you at the time is that cartilage doesn’t grow back!) Having been victimized by that very procedure, I do my very best to excoriate it, in this article.
Prolotherapy causes your body to heal. It is particularly helpful for tendons and ligaments. Alas, it is not as helpful as I had hoped for restoring major amounts of cartilage inside the joints. But it is a protocol that in many cases should tried before submitting to the surgeries that
modern medicine is so proud of.
