Knee Injections for Osteoarthritis
If you suffer from osteoarthritis in one or both of your knees, you may benefit from speaking with a Phoenixville, PA knee pain doctor that local patients trust. At Premier Osteoarthritis Centers of Pennsylvania, we have chosen to highlight the chronic condition known as osteoarthritis in our company’s title because our primary treatment offered is often so beneficial for osteoarthritis patients.
No doctor can guarantee the success of a treatment plan. If you have spoken to anyone else about your knee pain and they have guaranteed that the results of their approach will mitigate or eliminate your pain, you need to seek a second opinion. Our team takes great pride in offering a form of treatment that has proven to be life-altering for many patients. However, there is no single treatment approach to knee pain that can be guaranteed by anyone. As a result, it is important to speak with somebody who will be honest with you about the potential benefits and potential drawbacks of any given approach. At Premier Osteoarthritis Centers of Pennsylvania, we will always be honest with you and will always treat you with the respect and concern that you deserve.
Could You Benefit From Knee Injections?
Our practice offers a knee injection treatment that uses substances natural to a patient’s body in order to achieve results. We believe in this approach because synthetic treatments too often result in rejection of the treatment substance or a reaction. By using a substance that isn’t foreign to the body, we mitigate those risks to the fullest extent possible.
We also take great pride in another aspect of our knee injection process. All too often, medical providers who offer knee injections fail to place those injections properly. Instead of using an ultrasound or other highly technical diagnostic tool to place the knee injection where it has the greatest potential to do the most good, they go in blind. This means that they simply place the injection wherever they suspect that it will do some good. There is an old saying that close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. For us, close enough isn’t good enough. We are aware that approximately 40% of blind injections do patients no good whatsoever because they have been placed improperly. We will never administer an injection unless we have verified exactly where that injection needs to be placed for maximum effect.
Osteoarthritis patients tend to uniquely benefit from the knee injection procedure that we administer both due to the nature of their medical condition and due to the ways in which knee injections function. Osteoarthritis of the knee involves disintegration of the cartilage around a joint and/or the underlying bone near the joint. Knee injections promote repair and healing in ways that benefit osteoarthritis patients uniquely.
