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.
Dr. Albano graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City, Missouri, in May 2000 and is a member of the Canadian Chiropractic Association and Ontario Chiropractic Association. He is a graduate of Assumption College High School and received his Bachelors of Science degree in biochemistry from the University of Windsor. He is an instructor of Anatomy and Physiology as well as Neurology at Everest College in the registered massage therapy program.
Dr. Albano is an avid football fan and works with the Holy Name Fighting Knights senior high school football team. He volunteers his time as an assistant coach in the Windsor Essex Football League. He serves on the board of South Windsor Youth Soccer Club and coaches his children’s teams.
