In sports medicine, it has become common to assume surgical treatments and physical therapy are the only ways to target knee pain. Knee replacements are a highly invasive treatment option which can lead to long and painful recovery times. Knee surgery is highly invasive and exposes individuals to many risks, such as: blood clots, increased risk of stroke/ heart attack, usage of NSAIDs and issues with anesthesia.
The great news is that there are many non-invasive treatments which can successfully diagnose and treat knee conditions. These treatment options are low risk, pain free and highly effective in alleviating knee joint pain. Best of all, they avoid risky surgeries and narcotics. These include:

Now let’s take some time to explore the top 5 treatments for knee pain in nyc.
Hyaluronic Acid Injections
Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of joint fluid. It helps the cartilage on the ends of the bones in joints to remain lubricated. This ensures the bones in the joints can easily glide one over the other.
Conditions like knee arthritis may cause friction in the knee joint. This is because wear and tear over time (like osteoarthritis) causes the cartilage on the ends of the bones to wear away. This means the joints experience friction and bony spurs might even form. Knees can become stiff, swollen and inflamed.
Hyaluronic acid is an excellent remedy for knee arthritis. A knee doctor can inject hyaluronic acid directly into the knee joint. This delivers lubricating fluid into the knee so that it is able to move more easily.
Hyaluronic acid injections are a safe and highly effective way to alleviate knee joint pain. Best of all, these injections have helped many individuals to avoid unnecessary knee replacement surgeries.
Steroid medicine is far more powerful than over the counter medications, like aspirin. Steroid injections are one of the most popular treatment options for knee pain.
During this procedure, a knee doctor injects steroid medicine directly into the knee joint capsule. This directly targets the root cause of the pain and reduces inflammation in the knee joint. Some knee doctors also use local anesthetic to numb the knee and ensure it is comfortable.
Steroid injections are a low risk and pain free way to benefit from instant and long-term knee pain relief. Some individuals receive 2-3 steroid injections for maximum effect.

Platelet Rich Plasma Injections
Platelet rich plasma injections (prp treatment) is one of the most advanced techniques in pain medicine. Prp treatment combines the body’s own healing abilities with a holistic approach to health care to alleviate knee joint problems.
During prp treatment, a knee doctor uses a syringe to draw up a small sample of your blood. This blood sample is then inserted into a big machine, called a centrifuge. The centrifuge’s job is to separate all of the different components of your blood. The centrifuge then spins very quickly to condense your blood platelets into a high concentration. Once your platelets are in a high concentration, they are re-injected directly into the knee joint. This encourages the growth of healthy new cells and tissues in your knee joint.
Prp treatment uses the latest cutting-edge technology in conjunction with your body’s own healing abilities. It is a highly effective and low risk way to benefit from this state of the art knee pain treatment.
Genicular Nerve Block
A genicular nerve block (a G block) allows knee pain doctors to both diagnose and treat knee pain conditions. They help knee doctors to determine pathological modifications in your knee joint as well as provide knee pain relief.
The genicular nerves are sensory nerves located in the knee joint. If you experience knee pain, the genicular nerves send pain signals from the knee joint to the brain. Once the pain signals reach the brain, they are registered by the brain. This signals the sensation of pain in your body.
However, a knee doctor can interrupt this process in a safe and highly effective way. A knee doctor can inject local anesthetic near the genicular nerves in the knee joint. This numbs the genicular nerves and ‘blocks’ them from sending these pain signals to the brain. As a result, knee pain relief is achieved without the need for risky knee surgeries or narcotics.

Radiofrequency ablation is an exciting area of pain medicine. It is recommended for individuals experiencing chronic knee pain. It is also a great suggestion for those not wanting to receive steroid medicine as part of their treatment plan.
Rfa treatment involves a pain doctor using a special type of X-Ray (known as fluoroscopic guidance) to inject needles into the knee joint. Your knee doctor will place 1 needle below the knee joint and 2 needles above the knee joint. Next, tests might be conducted to confirm if the needles are in the best possible areas. Once this has been confirmed, your pain doctor will then transmit small currents of radiofrequency energy to the needles in the knee. The radiofrequency energy will be transmitted near the genicular (sensory) nerves in the knee joint so that these nerves heat up. Once the radiofrequency energy has heated up the genicular nerves, the genicular nerves will deactivate. This will stop the nerves sending pain signals to the brain.
Radiofrequency treatment is one of the most advanced forms of pain medicine. It has successfully helped many individuals avoid risky knee surgeries and is one of the safest treatments for long-term knee pain.
