Knee Pain Treatment
The knee is one of the most used and versatile joints in the body. It is also the joint that is the most likely to be injured and deteriorate due to wear and tear. Knee pain can limit your activities, from playing sports and participating in leisure activities to performing daily tasks. There are various sources of knee pain that require different knee pain treatments. At Ospina Medical, we offer innovative options for knee pain management and interventional medicine at our clinic in New York City.
The knee joint can pivot in different ways to allow you to switch directions, jump, climb and run. The ligaments, tendons and muscles that support the knee can be torn or damaged, causing pain and limiting mobility. Inflammation is a pain source, whether it is from injury or degenerative disease. Acute knee pain will often dissipate with conservative treatments, including rest, ice, NSAIDs for inflammation and strengthening exercises. For chronic or severe pain from arthritis or other joint conditions, a comprehensive knee pain treatment plan is needed.
Relief from Knee Arthritis
One of the most common causes of chronic knee pain is osteoarthritis. The knee joint is under extreme stress and is commonly a joint affected by arthritis. Arthritis is not curable, but the inflammation can be managed, and there are advanced options in interventional orthopedics to slow the deterioration of the cartilage and joint. Our interventional pain specialists at Ospina Medical offer steroid injections that help limit inflammation and pain. We also utilize interventional orthopedic options like injections to stimulate healing and slow joint degeneration.
