Now that we’ve touched on the importance of exploring these exciting treatment options, let’s take a look at them in more detail.

Steroid Injections

If you have knee pain, then steroid injections might be for you! Knee pain specialists usually recommend steroid injections as the first line of treatment. They are simple, fast and highly effective in delivering instant knee pain relief. Pain management doctors use steroid injections because they work well with a range of knee joint issues. They also work well when used in conjunction with physical therapy.

During your procedure, your knee pain doctor will inject some steroid medicine directly into the knee joint capsule. This allows the steroid medicine to take immediate effect. Steroid medicine works to reduce inflammation and pain in the joint. Some pain doctors also use local anesthetic to keep the knee joint numb and comfortable.

If you are interested in receiving the healing benefits of steroid injections, please don’t hesitate to book an appointment with one of our pain doctors. Steroid injections are more powerful than regular anti-inflammatory medication like aspirin. Plus, it’s always recommended to seek medical advice for any functional pain complaints.

Platelet Rich Plasma Injections

Platelet rich plasma injections (prp treatment) are one of the most exciting areas of regenerative medicine. Prp treatment works on the principle that platelets in your blood can heal your knee joint. It is recommended for those experiencing tendinitis and arthritis.

Prp is one of the best options for knee pain relief in new york. During this procedure, a knee physician draws up a small sample of your blood. The blood sample is then run through a machine called a centrifuge. The centrifuge collects and condenses all of the platelets in the blood so that they are of a high concentration. This high concentration of blood platelets are then injected back into your knee joint.

The re-injection of your blood platelets will encourage the growth of healthy new cells and tissues in the joint. This is a safe and low risk treatment option for knee pain because it combines cutting-edge technology with your body’s own healing properties.

Hyaluronic Acid Injections

Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of joint fluid. Hyaluronic acid injections can be used to increase the volume of joint fluid in the knee so that it can move more easily. It is recommended for common conditions like osteoarthritis (wear and tear over time) and other chronic pain issues.

Hyaluronic acid injections are an excellent option for knee pain relief in new york. This is because they are easy to apply and successfully alleviate friction in the knee joint caused by knee arthritis.

During your procedure, your knee doctor will ask you to lie on your back with your knee upright or to sit with your knee bent. Next, your knee will be cleaned with alcohol or betadine. Local anesthetic may also be used to ensure the joint is comfortable. Once this has been applied, your pain doctor will inject hyaluronic acid directly into the knee joint capsule. This will increase the volume of joint fluid in the knee and will help it to move more easily.

This treatment for knee pain is highly recommended because it allows patients to benefit from immediate improvement in knee functioning. They are also a low risk option and the procedure itself has minimal discomfort.

Genicular Nerve Block

A genicular nerve block (also known as a G block) is an excellent treatment option for knee pain. A top doctor in nyc can use a G block to determine pathological changes in the knee joint. It can also be used to alleviate severe knee pain.

During your procedure, your pain doctor will ask that you lie on the table. The knee joint will be numbed with local anesthetic and sterilized. Next, an X-Ray machine might be used to locate specific sites on the knee joint. These sites will be determined as possible injection sites for the local anesthetic. If your pain doctor is happy with the selected injection sites, they will proceed to inject local anesthetic directly into sites to be as close to the genicular nerves as possible. The delivery of local anesthetic to the genicular nerves will numb the nerves, meaning they no longer send pain signals from the knee to the brain. This process can be repeated several times for maximum effect.

G blocks are low risk, pain-free and highly effective in alleviating knee joint pain. They are also successful in determining diagnoses if you are experiencing changes in your knee joint due to underlying health conditions.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is an excellent treatment option if you want to avoid steroid medicine. It has successfully helped many individuals avoid unnecessary knee surgeries and narcotics.

Radiofrequency ablation is one of the most recent advancements in pain medicine. During this procedure, your pain doctor will give you medication so that you feel drowsy and relaxed. Once you feel comfortable, they will place three needles around the knee joint – two above the knee and one below the knee. Some pain doctors use an X-Ray to assist them in localizing the best injection sites. Local anesthetic is also used to numb the joint.

If your pain doctor is happy that the needles are in the best locations, they will then transfer radiofrequency energy to the needles. This transfer of energy will increase the temperature of the genicular nerves so that they become deactivated. This means they can no longer send pain signals from the knee joint to the brain. As a result, long-term pain relief is achieved without invasive surgeries or the use of narcotics.
