    You're right. The product does seem unbelievable. I read the link before @noddingtonpete wisely removed it. The whole article screamed 'snake oil' to me.

    Firstly, knee replacements are very, VERY rarely as difficult as the one described. I've had three (over 60 years) and all went smoothly. Of course it is painful at first but, with attention to surgens and physios, it is unlikely the pain will last for long.

    Secondly, what works for a superfit professional footballer is hardly likely to work for your average person. Footballers may use it for twinges, not for bone on bone arthritis. Which club would pay thousands per week for an arthritic footballer?

    I do get very cross about these firms who peddle so-called cures. There is no cure for arthritis. Our best bet is to manage it in the ways listed in the above link. When surgery becomes appropriate then we should go for it and do all necessary to make it work. Normally, it works brilliantly.

    I'm sure you will do things right. We all clutch at straws at first. But that's all they are. Good luck😃

    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.
