Knee Pain Relief
If you need relief for chronic knee pain, you may be a candidate for a knee injection. A knee injection is an advanced interventional procedure that can be used to diagnose and treat pain and inflammation in the knee joint. The procedure involves injecting an anesthetic and steroid medication into the knee joint, under the guidance of Fluoroscopy. The anesthetic serves to provide immediate pain relief and can help to confirm the source of the pain. The steroid serves to reduce the inflammation in the joint, leading to more long-term relief.
The physicians from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are highly trained and experienced in performing knee injections. Using this minimally invasive, outpatient procedure, we help athletes find long-term relief from chronic and acute knee pain.
