KNEE & HIP Problem? Get Second Opinion!
NATURAL ONLINE DOCTOR’S SUNDAY BLOG
Before hip or knee replacement, get a Second Opinion on basis of natural/naturopathic medicine as an alternative. Because of, inter alia, following implications.
- Physical activity may well improve the situation without replacement.
- Usually, the new hip or knee works up to 10 years before it needs to be replaced again. (Pretend you are 40, and live up to 80, you need 4 replacements.)
- If pain is the driving force behind your interest in hip/knee replacement, please keep in mind that 20,000 Americans die each year of prescription and narcotic pain killers (not to talk about OTC chemical drugs), while there are many natural pain killers available without debilitating side effects and premature death.
Although new implants have hit the market recently with seemingly a much brighter outlook, they are still reflecting a myth, as the internationally most renowned British Medical Journal has published the results of an international research team led by Dr. Art Sedrakyan of Cornell Medical College in New York only a couple of days ago – on September 9, 2014.
Based on the results of more than 15,000 implants in more than 13,000 patients under the supervision of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). With respect to safety and effectiveness, in comparison to the more than 1 million devices already implanted. Not enough, the number of revisions (repeated surgery) were even higher with the new (‘innovative’) implants.
In a nutshell: synthetic hip & knee replacements are somatophobic and a crude technology.
