Knee pain relief with the options offered at the Georgia pain clinics are effective for over 80% of patients, sometimes for over a year!
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) September 09, 2015
The top pain management clinics in Atlanta and surrounding areas, Spine Care and Pain Management, are now offering several new nonoperative knee pain treatments providing long-term relief. These treatments are covered by most insurance plans and are offered by double board certified knee pain specialists at the centers. Call (404) 850-9099 for more information and scheduling.
Knee pain due to rheumatoid or degenerative arthritis, posttraumatic arthritis, cartilage defects or sports injuries can put a significant damper on one's ability to function. Prior to undergoing potentially risky surgery, it is worth ones while to look at nonoperative relief with revolutionary techniques.
One such option is Viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid injections (e.g. Synvisc). These are FDA approved and covered by insurance. Over 80% of individuals achieve 6 to 12 months of considerable knee pain relief with an outpatient procedure takes less than half an hour.
The double board certified knee pain doctors at the centers offer Viscosupplementation along with additional options such as bracing, radiofrequency ablation and PRP therapy. Radiofrequency ablation of the knee has been a revolutionary addition to nonoperative knee pain treatment. The procedure involves deadening sensory nerves around the knee with thermal energy. Over a year of consistent relief can be achieved, with repeat procedures offering the same outcome when necessary.
Most insurance companies do cover the procedure due to its effectiveness for helping patients achieve relief and avoiding possibly risky procedures in the operating room.
PRP therapy is now being offered by Spine Care and Pain management, which is also known as platelet rich plasma therapy. A blood draw is performed in the office, and it is spun rapidly for about 15 minutes. This produces concentrated platelets and growth factors, which are then injected into the knee for amazing pain relief.
With these three available options, the Atlanta pain management doctors are able to help patients avoid knee surgery the vast majority of the time. There are 10 pain center locations throughout middle Georgia including Athens, Cumming, Hiram, Winder, Dublin, Dalton, Lavonia and Rome. This allows for many convenient locations with most medical insurance being accepted, such as with the additional Gainesville GA pain management clinic.
