GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Relief for the wounded weekend warrior may be coming very soon.

Millions of Americans (more than 50 million, according to the CDC) suffer from arthritis, often in the knees. For many of them, it’s the result of years of being active – playing softball, soccer, basketball – but once the arthritis develops, those playing days may be over.

The answers to such lingering issues are often dealt with at the largest of America’s hospital systems and universities who do the research.

But, in this edition of the Buckley Report, you’ll see that sometimes the answers are much closer to home, including this idea that a Greensboro-area orthopedic surgeon had, which it appears may be able to cure arthritis in a way that your body likes and will last for decades.
