Knee Arthritis

Are You Suffering from Chronic Knee Pain?

Arthritis is a common condition that many people experience as they get older. The knees undergo a lot of strain and pressure on a day-to-day basis, making them very susceptible to this disease. At this time, there is no cure for arthritis, but that does not mean you have to live with the pain. There are many treatments available that can help you manage the pain and resume an active lifestyle.

Determining the Best Course of Treatment

There are several different types of arthritis, which means that treatment will depend on the cause of your arthritis and the severity of the condition. The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis. This is caused by the wearing down of cartilage from day-to-day activities. It takes years for cartilage to wear down to this point, which is why arthritis is more common in older people.

Another common form of arthritis is rheumatoid arthritis. This is an autoimmune disease, which is a condition that causes your body’s immune system to turn on itself and attack healthy tissue.

Non-surgical treatments for knee arthritis include:

  • Epidural Nerve BlocksAn injection of corticosteroid into the epidural space of the spine. This treatment blocks certain nerves from sending pain signals to the brain.
  • Prolotherapy A noninvasive therapy that can result in long-term relief. The idea behind this therapy is to stimulate the body’s healing ability by injecting a steroid-free solution of dextrose and anesthetic into the joint.
  • Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP Therapy) PRP is injected into the knee to stimulate the healing process. Platelets play an important role in the body’s healing mechanisms.
  • Stem Cell Therapy Stem cells are extracted from your own body and injected into the knee. Stem cells take on the characteristics of whatever cells they are surrounded by, so they can help rebuild worn-down cartilage.

If you, your friend, or loved one are experiencing symptoms and pain from knee arthritis, there are people who can help. Contact National Spine & Pain Centers to book an important with a skilled pain management specialist near you.
