Always consult a medical doctor to oversee the management of knee arthritis.
However, medical doctors tend to emphasize medications and surgery as the key treatments.
This may not be ideal if you are concerned about the side effects of prolonged medication use and worried about the risks of surgery.
If you have any worries about the cost of medical treatment, the good news is that Medisave and Insurance can often be used for the diagnosis and treatment of knee arthritis.
