What is Knee Pain?
The human knee is a complex joint that is comprised of bone, cartilage, ligaments, and nerves to help us with weight bearing and movement. Knee pain can be caused by damage or inflammation in any of these areas. Our knee pain treatments aim to locate the specific reason that you have knee pain and remedy the problem with non-surgical, conservative options.
What Causes Knee Pain?
Knee pain ranges from minor, sharp pains to dull aches and even complete immobility of the joint. Some of the more common reasons that people are good candidates for knee pain treatments are:
- Tears to the ligaments
- Bursitis of the knee
- Bone degeneration
- Hip disorders
- Injury to the patella (knee cap)
What Are the Benefits of Knee Pain Treatment?
- Pain management and rehabilitative options for a comprehensive recovery
- Conservative options
- Improve mobility and quality of life
- May reduce future complications and risk of injury
What is Knee Arthritis Treatment?
Knee arthritis may be the reason that you have chronic knee pain. An arthritic knee has less cartilage (osteoarthritis), inflammation (rheumatoid arthritis), or adverse changes due to an injury. Treatment for knee arthritis aims to minimize the symptoms by strengthening muscles, reducing pain episodes and improving body mechanics.
What Should I Expect from My Knee Pain Treatment?
- Viscosupplementation injections
- Cortisone injections
- Genicular nerve blocks
- Intra-articular joint injections
Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Knee Pain Treatment?
Knee pain treatment is typically covered under medical insurance, and patients should be prepared to pay for any out-of-pocket expenses as determined by their individual carriers. If the out-of-pocket expenses are costly to your budget, speak with our patient coordinator to find out if you qualify for a payment plan, discounted rates, and other financial options.
