Painkillers and Medications for Joint Pain
Painkillers will not fix or repair knees or joint pain. They just block your nerves and brain from sensing the pain. They have no therapeutic value except for pain management. Doctors prescribe them in hope of giving your body a chance to repair itself while decreasing the pain with medications. But, this is a flawed theory or principal. Strong painkillers are needed when damage to tissue is to a point where it causes severe pain.
Can Surgery or Steroid Injections Fix or Cure Your Knees?
Minimally invasive Knee surgery such as the arthroscopic knee surgery and steroid injections have proven less successful than conservative knee pain treatment. Arthroscopic knee surgery is the to-go-to procedure for many orthopedic surgeons. Perhaps the most useless arthroscopic surgery is one where surgeons do a partial meniscectomy. In 2013, a grouped of highly experienced professor doctors that specialized in knee surgery took the burdens of assessing the effectiveness of arthroscopic knee surgery for the meniscus. The research was conducted through a double-blind sham-controlled clinical trial of 146 knee pain patients.
The authors concluded that the sham surgery (fake surgery) was just as good as the arthroscopic meniscal surgery.

Why Our Integrative Conservative Treatment is better than Medication, Steroidal Injections, and Surgery Combined?
Anyone can suffer from knee pain regardless of age, weight or physical activities. Knee pain might result from an injury, fall, ruptured ligament or overuse of cartilage (firm tissue layer which acts as a cushion between the joints, preventing contact between the femur and tibia bone). Apart from that, the pain may also arise from gout, arthritis or infections. The best means of treating knee pain is through a diagnosis-specific method that addresses the actual cause. In other words, it must be targeted and efficient. That is where Chiropractic Specialty Center comes in.
