Cortisone injections

A small amount of a high dose steroid is injected into your knee under local anesthetic. It can provide months of pain relief and allow patients to gain control over their symptoms. In some cases patients can regain a good level of function in their knee. A corticosteroid (cortisone) injection is one of the most common anti-inflammatory injections used.

Hyaluronic Acid Injections

The body’s natural joint lubricant, the synovial fluid, also helps spread the load throughout the joint and helps nourish the joint surfaces. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is one of the most important components in your synovial fluid. In conditions such as osteoarthritis, the balance between new and old HA is disrupted and less new HA is produced by your knee. As a result of this, your synovial fluid becomes more watery and stops working properly.
 
An injection of HA can restore the balance of new and old HA in your knee. This can mean less pain and stiffness and an overall improvement in function and movement. This can also alleviate the symptoms of arthritis and some patients report months of pain relief.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma ) Injections

Platelets are cells found in your blood stream. They produce a substance that can help the body heal damaged tissues called growth factor. PDGF or Platelet Derived Growth Factor, causes a stem cell to be released and migrate to the site of injury. It is possible to separate out the platelets from a patients blood and inject the growth factors directly into the damaged area. Here they can help the body’s natural healing process.
