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.
There are ways to heal the knees. In 2007, my keys were weight training, prolotherapy, and a chiropractic maneuver known as traction.
Proper skeletal alignment can eliminate pain and promote healing, but it doesn’t have to be achieved with sudden, wrenching movements. “Gentle chiropractic” maneuvers can achieve the same goals, and educate the patient in the process.
