An ACL tear is a traumatic knee injury and many surgeons recommend surgery to repair the ACL. This is not the only solution. In fact, this solution, surgery, is an extremely invasive and risky procedure that can leave a person with life-long symptoms and an extremely painful rehabilitation process.
Traumatic knee injuries occur everyday as well as knee surgery. Many doctors instantly recommend surgery as a fix all problem for moderate to severe knee injuries but as a Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation physician for over thirty years, I can tell you that there is a non-surgical approach to healing complex knee injuries.
Traumatic knee injuries happen everyday. In fact, there are 600,000 knee replacement surgeries performed each year in the United States. Dr. Benjamin Bieber’s goal is to treat traumatic knee injuries such as ACL, MCL, LCL tears and chronic osteoarthritis non-surgically.
Many of my patients have been recommended for surgery or have tried to leave their knee injury alone to heal itself. Not only is knee surgery invasive but it is also risky. Patients may end up with long-term and unforeseen complications and disabling symptoms after surgery. Allowing the knee to heal on it’s own from a traumatic injury also has it’s set backs as the knee will most likely not fully heal and a person is left with long-term painful and disabling symptoms
Are you looking for a quick method to heal your knee injury, without surgery and without relying on months of physical therapy?
Let’s face the facts, a knee injury isn't fun. One can barely walk or if they can, there is the pain, stiffness, and immobility. It might not be the pain that is the worst of it but not being able to have the freedom to do the activities you want like take long walks, exercise, run and play games, sit at a restaurant without feeling pain, and move from place to place without the awareness of constant pain and nervousness that you may re-injure it.
