Have you been told your joints are bone on bone and you may need a joint replacement??
Let me guess - your first line of attack was a series of cortisone injections?
Maybe that band-aid helped, but only for a little bit... and now you may be facing major surgery but are still wondering if there is anything else that can be done.
(Spoiler: there IS something else that can be done).
What if I told you that no matter how long you’ve been suffering, there is a 90% chance that your pain is NOT caused by “bone on bone” joints...
What?? You say...how could that be??
But I saw the MRI...my doctor pointed it out...
Yes, we hear this ALL the time from clients wanting to avoid surgery and I can confidently tell you, we have helped them not only get rid of the pain, but become much more active and mobile AND avoid surgery all together!!
How is that possible???
Often times what we see on an image (MRI, X-ray, etc) is only a very small piece to the puzzle. The image is only looking at one thing: the joint. It’s not taking into consideration the muscles surrounding the joint that have been compensating for years and years, which have then slowly affected the way you walk, which has then changed the position of your pelvis (your posture), which then pisses off your hip and low back muscles, which then adds MORE stress back on the knee.
You get the point...
This might be one of my BIGGEST frustrations in the orthopedic world . Doctors will just nonchalantly recommend injections and surgeries without EVER considering what caused this joint deterioration in the first place!!
Joint replacements AREN’T NORMAL!
Joint replacements are not just a part of life...
If your car has poor alignment and is wearing your left tires down unevenly... do you just change the tires, knowing it will just happen again? Or do you fix the alignment, the true reason why the tires are wearing in the first place??
Of course you fix the alignment of your tires. So why do we just “change the tires” on our bodies??
Cars are replaceable. Our bodies are not - and joints shouldn’t be either.
