Knee Injections

yThe knee is the largest joint in the body, consisting of multiple bones, ligaments, and muscles. 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. Moreover, conditions like Osteoarthritis can result in discomfort due to decreased cartilage levels. In some cases, individuals suffer knee pain from multiple causes, making it even more difficult to find lasting relief. 

While the providers at Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine typically recommend non-invasive, therapeutic treatment, some conditions call for more direct approaches, including injections. Knee injections help relieve pain more quickly than other approaches, allowing the patient to engage in everyday activities with less pain and inflammation. For those engaging in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation programs, this relief can allow them to adhere to treatment more effectively. 

 

Knee Injections in Austin

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. As a result, some patients experience relief after the first injection which can last for up to six months. These injections are usually repeated at planned intervals for the best results.

Knee injections usually accompany traditional Physical Therapy treatment. However, some patients find enough relief to stop other forms of therapy. Furthermore, this approach to treating knee pain can serve as a bridge for patients who are considering knee surgery.

Medicare and most major health insurance carriers cover these injections. Moreover, Austin Preferred offers them at our reasonable self-pay prices for those without coverage.
