Can osteoarthritis of the knee be cured without surgery?

“My knee hurts, and when I went to an orthopedic surgeon for an X-ray, I was told that it was deformed. Should I have surgery?”
I was consulted.
In general, hospitals recommend surgery to replace a deformed joint with an artificial joint.
Other alternative treatments include massage, electrotherapy, and heat therapy.
What will be the outcome of the treatment?
Many people receive massage at osteopathic clinics.
However, the result is not the same.
I used to do massage and knee joint correction, but I couldn’t improve as I thought.
Even if I went for a year or two, I couldn’t bring it to the point where I could say, “I’m cured.”
What about surgery?
Most people will ask their doctor questions if surgery is recommended.
“Doctor, will it hurt after the operation?”
And in most cases the answer should be:
“You won’t know until you try”
The decision to replace your knee joint with a prosthesis is a life-changing decision.
And yet, saying, “You won’t know until you try,” doesn’t it feel like gambling?
When asked if I should have surgery, I answer as follows.
“It’s better to do everything you can”
The operation is irreversible.
This means that once done, there is no going back.
It’s too late to regret it.
So it’s better not to choose surgery easily and do whatever you can do now.
So, what kind of treatment we do at our clinic is “correction of the spine”.
“I’ve had it before, but it didn’t work.”
Most of the people have received “knee correction”.
I used to get rid of my knee pain by correcting my knee, but the result was…
All I do is “correction of the spine”.
“Don’t you treat your knee?”
Don’t touch your knees.
The reason why only the spine is corrected is that the motor nerves that move the knees, the sensory nerves that feel pain in the knees, and the autonomic nerves that heal the knees all come from the spine.
By correcting my spine and keeping it straight, my knees can move as I want, and when I sleep, my knees get a little better, and the pain goes away day by day.
A word of caution here.
Most people with knee pain spend their time sitting at home.
If you sit for a long time, your back will become round and your knees will hurt more easily when you stand up.
It is very important to sit in the correct posture and stand up regularly, at least once every 30 minutes.
Place the back of your hand on your waist.
Tighten the muscles on both sides of the spine just above the back of the hand and arch the spine. there is).
