Knee pain commonly involves more than just the structures inside the joint. It may include the tendons or ligaments outside of the joint. In order to have complete relief of pain, all of the sources of pain must be treated. If you are tired of living with knee pain after trying other forms of therapy you may be a candidate for one of our advanced regenerative treatments.
Trigger Point Injections
Trigger points can be created when a muscle has been overworked or injured. When these trigger points are causing consistent pain, it may be time to start considering trigger point injections. We inject steroids to reduce inflammation and catalyze the healing of muscle tissue.
Viscosupplementation artificially supplements the joints fluid’s natural viscosity. By injecting a man-made hyaluronan into the knee, it can temporarily lubricate the knee joint, thereby decreasing pain, improving function and perhaps even slowing the degeneration process.
Sympathetic Nerve Block
A cervical nerve block is usually performed when the patient is suffering from shoulder, arm, hand and/or neck pain. A block is used to determine if there his damage to the sympathetic nerve chain and if the damage is the source of the pain. Although this is a diagnostic test, it may provide relief far in excess of the duration of an anesthetic.
Sacroiliac Joint Injections
An SI joint injection is performed if your doctor suspects that your pain may be originating from your SI joint and/or from the muscles, tendons, or ligaments around the joint. The local anesthetic numbs the joint and also numbs and relaxes the muscles around the joint, which can result in sustained pain relief.
