True confession of a knee pain survivor. “I thought I had played my last game.”

A torn meniscus is not how a player want to be “taken out to the ball game”. Unfortunately, it’s a common injury among baseball players that leave many of them with excrutiating knee pain.

Many baseball players turn to knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus. However, surgery for a torn meniscus shouldn’t be the first treatment option.

When Randy tore his meniscus playing baseball, he was in pain and thought his days of playing ball were over. He tried physical therapy and the RICE method (Rest, Ice, Compression,and Elevation), but nothing he tried relieved his knee pain. 

His MRI showed that he tore the medial meniscus in his left knee and  was told that his only options were knee surgery or to live with the pain.

Prior to this, Randy had seen commercials for Busch Chiropractic on TV while at the gym. He was so tired of living with pain and needed to do something different. He didn’t want to have surgery which could keep him off work and baseball for 6 months or more. He decided to give Busch Chiropractic in Fort Wayne a call. He knew they could relieve back pain and hoped that he could find some relief for his knee pain.

When he first came to the office he was in so much pain that he could barely walk. Today, Randy is feeling great! He’s back to work and back to playing baseball. In fact, he even played 60 innings in the Roy Hobbs World Series within 4 months after his first visit. 

Hear Randy’s story and learn how he found relief from knee pain, avoided knee surgery, and didn’t let a torn meniscus strike him out of the game he loved. ️⚾
