Hi Mike.

There is really no evidence these do anything really. What are you trying to treat?

Customer: replied 27 days ago.

Alternative to full knee surgery.. and pain management.

Expert:  DocPhilMD replied 27 days ago.

No there is absolutely no evidence it is helpful

I doubt it will harm you but I also doubt it will help

Is this beneficial info?
