5 “tips” from the Self-Manage Knee Pain book

1. Exhaust conservative options
Exhaust all conservative options before considering surgery due to many potential
complications. Knowing the possible choices puts you in a better position to potentially avoid knee surgery, minimize complications, shorten your recovery time, save money, and do what you feel is the very best for you.


2. Imaging evidence isn’t perfect
Understand that your knee X-ray or MRI is not the final answer to eliminating or conservatively managing your pain and improving function. Imaging evidence alone is not an indicator of your best treatment or management choice.


3. Avoid injections, if possible
Research steroid injections before allowing a specialist to inject your knee. A New England Journal of medicine study comparing steroid injections and P. T. found that after one year the P. T. clients experienced lower pain and higher function while other reports found long term joint damage potential using steroids.


4. Limit medication dependence
Develop self-management skills to eliminate or reduce dependence on medications since risk of gastrointestinal ulcers or bleeding increases the longer you use them. In 2015, the Federal Drug Administration issued strong warnings about heart attack and stroke risks for commonly used over-the-counter drugs advertised daily on TV.


5. Movement is your medicine
Seek alternatives for pain or anti- inflammatory medications, making movement your medicine. You may be among the many who are first learning about the severe side effects of common or stronger anti-inflammatory medication.
