At Arthritis Relief Centers, we are experts in relieving pain. We offer our patients a number of arthritis treatments and services that help with knee, joint, and spinal pains, including guided knee injections, viscosupplmentation, and radiofrequency ablation.
When it comes to treating a patient’s pain, we don’t leave things to chance. We utilize low-dose x-ray technology to confirm needle placement prior to any injection of a medication or product.
Viscosupplementation refers to a particular line of products used in knee arthritis treatments. “Visco” is short for viscosity, while supplementation means we are adding a viscous gel to the joint that supplements the joint’s current volume of fluid.
In short, viscosupplementation acts as a viscous lubricant and cushioning gel that supplements what your body lacks, thus reducing the rubbing and grinding in an arthritic knee.
Amniotic Regenerative Medicine is a relatively new option to treat a wide array of conditions from arthritis, tendonitis, cartilage tears, and partial tendon tears to plantar fasciitis. This treatment uses amniotic tissue, which possesses unique healing capabilities. Rich in growth factors and inflammatory controlling substances, the amniotic tissue attracts the body’s healing response, creating a magnet for stem cells and other reparative cells for maximum healing potential.
Platelet rich plasma – also known as PRP – is a type of injection used to treat chronic injuries like tendonitis. It is also employed for acute injuries in athletes like pulled hamstrings muscles and ankle sprains.
Epidural Steroid Injections can be performed anywhere along the spine, from the neck all the way to the lower back, depending on the location of the pain. Also known as a “ESI,” this treatment can provide relief from many types of spinal pain, including herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, and pinched nerves.
Radiofrequency Ablation is a procedure that can be performed in a variety of body regions to relieve chronic pain. The most common areas are lumbar spine, cervical spine, knee joint, and SI joint.
Spinal Cord Stimulators are an advanced pain management procedure for patients who have failed just about every other pain management procedure or tool available. Most often these are patients who continue to have chronic lower back pain following spinal surgery or someone with severe chronic pain due to RSD. Spinal cord stimulation can give relief when other arthritis treatments fail.
Facet Joint Blocks and Injections can be very helpful for patients experiencing lower back pain or cervical pain derived from the facet joints rather than the disc. Such pain can often time be difficult for a patient to distinguish since it comes from so deep in the spine.
With this procedure, we are able to isolate the source of the pain and diagnostically confirm that the pain is, in fact, coming from the joint rather than the disc. This procedure can be both diagnostic and therapeutic at the same time.
We use advanced medical bracing when our patients need support and pain relief. Whether to help get you back to work, maintain an active lifestyle, or just get to the grocery store and run errands, proper medical bracing – such as knee unloader braces or back braces – will give you the confidence and pain relief you need to get things done.
