Osteoarthritis of the knee is commonly treated with drugs.  Long-term therapy with medicines may cause other problems: NSAIDs can cause stomach ulcers, cardiovascular problems, and kidney and liver damage. Taking larger doses of acetaminophen (such as Tylenol) may cause liver damage.

On this episode, Dr. Luigi Albano offers a totally new drug-free treatment for osteoarthritis of the knee.  He applies the principles he uses in treating the spine to treat the knee.
