Don’t Confuse Knee Arthritis with Pain…
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. You can experience knee pain and mistake it for knee arthritis.
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. 👍
