She is experiencing severe chronic pain which limits her mobility and interupts her sleep. Her doctor said she needed knee replacements, but due to other health concerns and her age that was out of the question. He gave her a cortisone injection in both knees and she had some relief for about 4 days and then she could hardly walk again.

We have also experimented with magnetic therapy. What do you think about them and what about physical therapy?
