Suffering from arthritis? Knee pain bothering you? We have access to the latest conservative treatments and the best doctors at the VIP medical group.

If you are struggling with arthritis in your knee joints, it is important to try talking to your doctor to explore treatment options. Nowadays, orthopedic surgeons can hastily recommend knee replacement surgery combined with pain medicine to tackle arthritic knee joints and chronic knee pain. However, surgery carries many risks, including: problems with anesthesia, blood clots and post-operative infections. Invasive treatments like surgery procedures also require long recovery periods with an over-reliance on pain medication. Research is now beginning to demonstrate the negative consequences of relying on pain medication for long periods of time and the way it impacts other bodily functions.

Due to this, it is highly recommended that you consider visiting a pain doctor that can offer an array of successful, minimally-invasive treatment options.  These procedures use the latest technology in regenerative medicine to maximize health without the risks associated with unnecessary surgeries.  Pain doctors will also provide advice regarding factors that can assist with your knee pain, such as safe ways to lose weight, or modifications that can be made to daily activities to alleviate pain.

What Are Conservative Treatment Options?

Conservative treatments are procedures that maximise health through minimally-invasive procedures. They are a holistic approach to accurately targeting and treating pain whilst avoiding the need for risky surgical procedures.

The aim of a pain doctor is therefore to use the latest conservative treatment options that surgery may not be able to remedy. Pain doctors work with you to establish a treatment plan that suits your lifestyle whilst getting you back to full health efficiently and effectively. By visiting a pain doctor to treat knee joint pain, you will be able to explore treatment options that maximize your health through minimally-invasive and health-promoting techniques. Some examples of the latest knee pain treatment options include:

  • Genicular Nerve Block – the doctor injects the knee with local anesthetic. This blocks nerves from transmitting pain and provides pain relief.
  • Genicular Nerve Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA) – this is an option for longer-term pain relief. It stops the nerve supply by placing heated needles to prevent the patient from feeling pain. A small amount of local anesthetic can also be used during this procedure.
  • Steroid injection – the doctor applies anesthetic spray to numb the area before injecting anti-inflammatory pain medicine into the knee joint.
  • Viscosupplement knee injection – the doctor anesthetizes the area before injecting viscosupplement medicine. This is when lubricating fluid is injected into the knee joint.

What Qualities Should I Look For In My Pain Doctor?

Now that we have looked at the importance of visiting a pain doctor, let’s highlight key criteria you should look for in your pain doctor:

  • Board Certified – this ensures that your pain doctor has achieved the highest possible levels of training. A Board Certified doctor has completed intense, rigorous training and is experienced and qualified to provide the best treatments available.
