Joint Replacement Surgery: Is it necessary?
Imagine for a moment that you have terrible joint pain. Let's say it's in the knee, though feel free to choose another location. The agony has gotten so bad and so constant that you are forced to see your orthopedic surgeon. He tells you that you need a knee replacement; he says your knee has degenerated so much that the cartilage is gone, you are bone on bone, and your only path to relief is getting a new knee.
Is there another option? Another perspective? Let's take a step back and start from the beginning:
Every time we do anything, from running and playing sports to walking and lifting up our children, force enters our bodies. It is the job of the muscles to absorb that force, and when they do that job correctly we can keep doing our activities over and over again without pain. Problems occur when the muscles don't absorb all of that force, so it is then diverted to areas like tendons, ligaments, and discs. When even small amounts of force get into these areas continuously over long periods of time, these areas begin to degenerate and we have joint pain.
In this sense, the muscles are like the shock absorbers on a car. If they don't absorb the force of the car going over bumps, the body of the car will get damaged just like the joint. When the car is damaged for this reason, are you going to buy a new car? Or are you simply going to replace the shock absorbers?
Assuming you like the car to begin with, replacing the shocks is the clear choice. Following this analogy back to the body, the doctor has presented the option of buying a new car instead of fixing the problem with the shock absorbers. This option does not fix the problem. Now, instead of force being transmitted to the original knee, it is going to be transmitted to the artificial one. The artificial one will wear down just as the original one did, and it too will have to be replaced. So even if you do get the new knee, don't think for a moment that the problem is fixed. The underlying issue of force absorption still needs to be addressed.
What if there were another way entirely? A way to dramatically alter the way that the body functions, a way to ensure that the muscles absorb all of the force and keep it out of the injured joint? What if, at the same time the muscles were keeping force from re-aggravating the joint, we could draw large amounts of blood to the joint and allow the body's own healing and repair mechanisms to take over? That sounds like a recipe for reversing the real problem.
That recipe is, in fact, a very effective way to fix the problem. It has enabled many, many grateful people to get out of pain and avoid joint replacement surgery when their doctors had said it is the only way.
