New Dr. Allen Device for Knee Treatment, which incorporates two natural thermopads, covers the both sides of the affected knee helping people to get relieve from pain and other symptoms of osteoarthritis, and, consequently, avoid harmful and expensive surgical procedures. The use of this natural device in the first place corresponds with The American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) advice to physicians to avoid recommending knee arthroscopy as an initial treatment for patients with degenerative meniscal tears, Fine Treatment reveals.
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, and affects more than 27 million Americans and over 100 million people worldwide, states the article Arthroscopic Knee Surgery ‘No Benefit’ for Osteoarthritis, in the National-plan, dated May 15, 2014. Arthroscopic knee surgery costs about $4,000, depending on insurance, hospital fees and the surgeon. The American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) listed arthroscopic surgery as one of five procedures that are commonly ordered.
However, now the AMSSM advised physicians to avoid recommending knee arthroscopy as an initial treatment for patients with degenerative meniscal tears, as German researchers reached their conclusion about the ineffectiveness of arthroscopy after studying 11 randomized controlled trials involving over 1,000 osteoarthritis patients who had the procedure or a “sham surgery” that was used as a placebo to mimic arthroscopy.
It is difficult to find an effective therapy for knee treatment as topical painkillers for knee, such as analgesic creams, rubs, and sprays give short-term relief. According to the WebMD, not everyone will have good pain relief from these preparations, and capsaicin in particular may not help with osteoarthritis pain.
Help from physical therapy is uncertain, therefore people look for for a surgical solution. A study published in the May 2013 New England Journal of Medicine, ‘Surgery versus Physical Therapy for a Meniscal Tear and Osteoarthritis,’ found no difference in outcomes in patients with a meniscal tear and osteoarthritis if treated with physical therapy compared with arthroscopic surgery and physical therapy. Furthermore, 30% of the patients who were assigned to physical therapy alone underwent surgery within 6 months.
“Topical treatments cannot reach the knee structures easily and therefore can bring short-term relief, while Dr. Allen’s device treats the knee for a pronged period of time,” says Dr. Simon Allen. “Chronic knee osteoarthritis should be treated with Dr. Allen’s Device in the first place as with the price of $155 only it provides effective pain and other symptoms relief.”
