Knee Injections

Knee pain results from degenerative conditions, injuries or even changes in gait. This often leads to fatigue in the surrounding muscles, which reduces support and adds pressure on the knee. Osteoarthritis, another common cause of knee pain, may result in discomfort due to decreased cartilage levels. The providers at Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine typically recommend non-invasive, therapeutic treatment. However, some conditions call for more direct approaches like knee injections.

 

About Knee Injections:

Knee injections deliver lubricating fluid into the knee, relieving pain and inflammation caused by bone-on-bone rubbing. The procedure is quite simple and lasts only a few minutes. Consequently, some patients can experience relief after the first injection which lasts for up to six months. Injections may be repeated at planned intervals for the best results.

This technique is usually recommended in addition to traditional Physical Therapy treatment. However, some patients elect to undergo injections as a standalone procedure. Furthermore, this approach to treating knee pain can serve as a bridge for patients who are considering knee surgery.

Injections are covered by Medicare as well as most health insurance carriers. Moreover, Austin Preferred offers them at reasonable self pay prices for those without coverage.
