According to a 2013 federally funded study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, physical therapy (PT) is as effective as knee surgery for a torn meniscus. This study compared the results of arthroscopic surgery versus physical therapy at seven major U.S. universities and orthopedic surgery centers, according to The Washington Post. Its 351 subjects had meniscus tears and osteoarthritis, a common knee injury. After six months, both the PT group and the group who initially had surgery reported similar rates of functional improvement. They also submitted similar pain scores. Researchers reported similar results at 12 months.
