Question: What knee pain treatments can pain management doctors recommend other than medication?
Pain management doctors can use various non-medication treatments for knee pain, including:
Physical therapy: To help improve joint mobility, strengthen the muscles surrounding the knee, and alleviate pain.
Exercise: Certain exercises can help to reduce knee pain, such as low-impact activities like swimming or cycling, as well as stretching and strengthening exercises.
Heat/Ice therapy: Applying heat or ice to the knee can help relieve pain and reduce swelling.
Weight management: Losing weight can help reduce stress on the knee joint and alleviate pain.
Assistive devices: Canes, crutches, knee braces, or other assistive devices can help to reduce the load on the knee joint and relieve pain.
Corticosteroid injections: Corticosteroids can be injected directly into the knee joint to relieve pain and reduce inflammation.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections: PRP is a concentrated mixture of platelets that can be injected into the knee to promote healing and relieve pain.
These are just some of the many treatments that a #PainManagementDoctor may use to help manage knee pain. The specific treatment recommended will depend on the cause of the knee pain and the individual’s overall health status.
