Is The InTENSity 10 Combo an alternative for knee pain surgery?
It’s been all over the news recently that common knee surgery is no more effective than fake surgery. Fortunately, the InTENSity 10 combo is a non-invasive, drug and surgery-free treatment for knee pain (as well as other 9 parts of the human body). Though knee pain is sometimes caused by aging, people of all ages may experience it. It can be also due to injury or provoked by an underlying condition, such as arthritis, gout and infections. Finally, knee pain can be caused by mechanical problems as well.
The type of injuries that can lead to knee pain include tearing the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) (common in basketball and soccer players), tearing the meniscus (usually by suddenly twisting the knee while bearing weight on it), knee bursitis (inflammation of the small sacs of fluid that cushion the outside of the knee joint, known as the bursae), and patellar tendinitis (irritation and swelling of one or more tendons; often experienced in running, skiing, cycling and other sports that involve jumping).
The forms of arthritis that can be a source of knee pain are osteoarthritis (wear and tear of the knee cartilage brought about by use and age), rheumatoid arthritis (can affect any joint in the body, including the knees), gout (uric acid crystal buildup in the joint; affects mostly the big toe, but sometimes the knee as well), pseudogout (caused by calcium-containing crystals developing in the joint fluid), and septic arthritis (swelling, pain, and redness caused by infection).
And the mechanical problems that can have an influence on knee pain are a loose body (a piece of bone or cartilage that breaks and floats off, and interferes with the movement of the knee joint), illiotibial band syndrome (a tightening of the ligament that goes from the outside of the pelvic bone to the outside of the tibia; common in long distance runners), a dislocated kneecap (the patella that covers the front of the knee slips to the outside of the knee), and hip or foot pain (altered gait due to hip or foot pain may place more stress on the knee).
Since there are so many knee pain risk factors and causes, the first thing you need to do is see a doctor, especially if you experience an inability to bear weight on the knee, marked knee inflammation, inability to fully extend the knee, fever in addition to redness, pain and swelling, and a feeling that the knee is unstable. Once a doctor establishes the source of knee pain, you can ask him how the InTENSity 10 can help you.
