Somebody on this board suggested trying prolotherapy before the surgery option for knee replacement. Can anyone tell me more about that? I know there are websites about prolotherapy. I'd like to hear from folks that have tried it and what your experience has been. It sounds like it's not considered standard medical practice, so insurance won't pay for it. But it may delay the inevitable surgery for some years. I'm almost 60, so a little young for TKR, but I can't do some of the things I'd like to do, like backpacking and mountain climbing. So I'm wondering if I can get a few more years of use of these knees before surgery. Thanks for any info.
