Which Knee Conditions Can Interventional Pain Management Treat?

Knees have many moving parts, so injury or disease that affects any part of the joint can cause a loss of functionality. This can be caused by injury, disease, or age-related cellular degeneration.

Knee injuries and ailments are often painful and debilitating. The most common problems associated with knee pain involve ligament or cartilage damage.

What Causes Knee Pain?

Injuries like a meniscus tear, sprain or tear, and hamstring tendinopathy can damage the soft tissue of the knee. Patients may also suffer from pain caused by joint diseases or wear and tear that comes with age. These conditions include organic diseases like arthritis, patellofemoral syndrome, bursitis, or Baker’s cyst.

How Do You Diagnose Knee Pain?

Your knee joint is a complex and powerful joint, the largest in your body. A knee injury can cause you a lifetime of pain and suffering if not corrected.

When you come to the Advanced Relief Institute, our medical experts will run several tests on your knee to evaluate your condition and identify your specific knee issue. These tests may include specific exercises for knee pain, X-rays, ultrasound tests, and more.

After the tests are complete, your doctor will create a treatment plan to get you back on your feet as quickly and painlessly as possible.

What Are My Interventional Pain Management Treatment Options for Knee Pain?

If your knee pain is significant, these interventions are available:

  • Interventional pain management
  • Knee replacement surgery

Interventional pain management is usually the first step in addressing knee pain because it combines treatment and testing. This process involves injecting medicines and numbing agents into the knee joint to reduce pain. This process can also identify areas where the pain is coming from.

Interventional pain management treatments may include (but are not limited to):

  • Fluoroscopic guided steroid injection for knee pain
  • HYALGAN® injection for knee pain (fluoroscopic guided)
  • HYALGAN® injection for knee pain (ultrasound guided)
  • Prolotherapy treatment for chronic knee pain
  • Ultrasound-guided injection for knee pain

Is There a Recovery Period After Interventional Knee Pain Management?

After your knee injections, you will be able to return home or to work right after treatment. Patients should feel pain relief within three to seven days.

Your knee may feel swollen or tender for a few days after your injection. You may want to avoid vigorous exercise until these symptoms fade.

What Are My Regenerative Therapy Options?

Regenerative therapies (PRP injections, stem cell treatment, or amniotic fluid treatment) may help reverse cell degradation. Contact our providers to learn more about these treatments.
