Don’t Confuse Knee Arthritis with Pain | Akridge & Akridge Chiropractic
A new study has found that up to 43% of adults over age 40 show MRI signs of knee arthritis- without any symptoms!
This is yet another study in a long list of papers confirming that arthritis is usually a SYMPTOM, not a problem.
Joint pain is not something you need to “live with”. Many times, conservative treatments like exercise can correct the underlying imbalance and provide relief, in spite of what the x-rays show.
