Knee Joint Injection
Because the knee joint supports our body weight through several types of movement (bending, flexing, and twisting), it is prone to traumatic injury. Knee joint injections are a minimally-invasive way to help ease your pain and restore the knee’s range of motion. They deliver relief from pain and inflammation directly into the affected area of your knee.
The most common conditions that knee joint injections help treat are chronic arthritis and acute injury in the joint. These injections are minimally-invasive and performed in an outpatient setting, providing an alternative to surgery. They can help:
- Decrease pain by inhibiting the transmission of pain messages
- Promote healing
- Improve quality of life in patients with limited mobility
- Treat inflammation
- Lubricate the joint
Overall, pain relief from knee injections can allow you to be more mobile and engage in an active, healthy lifestyle. They’re best done in concert with other treatments like physical therapy.
