Our Treatment for Arthritis in Knees

We Provide Advanced Pain Relief Therapy for OA Sufferers

Viscosupplementation was approved by the FDA in 1996. Arthritis Knee Pain Centers® advances its efficacy and impact with digital imaging and a comprehensive scientific approach.

Our specially trained physicians have successfully treated more than 50,000 patients since 2016 with precision viscosupplementation, custom bracing support, and lifestyle counseling specific to sufferers of osteoarthritis of the knee. By utilizing modern technology, our clinical teams take the guesswork out of our procedure. Many of our patients feel better shortly after our therapy.

Precision Viscosupplementation

Cushioning and Lubricating Relief from Knee Pain

Our pain relief program is a critical piece to your continuum of care. Many of our patients have tried and exhausted use of corticosteroid injections, pain relievers, over-the-counter braces, and custom footwear and found none to limit pain relief.

Our patients can quickly return to the activities they enjoy without the risks of surgery or the dangers of opioids. See why more than 50,000 patients have trusted us to treat their knee pain skillfully.

Our FDA-approved therapy consists of a series of precision-guided knee joint injections of a viscosupplement. The “visco” cushioning gel is an all-natural replacement for the depleted synovial fluid in your knee joint and acts as a “lubricant” and “shock absorber.”

According to studies, clinicians who administer viscosupplement injections without imaging, actually miss the joint area completely up to 30% of the time. Our specially trained physicians use advanced fluoroscopic digital imaging so that we know we’re getting the “visco” gel in the joint, every single time. Fluoroscopy ensures our doctors precisely place the medicine where it will do the most good. There’s no guesswork or clumsy pinching and poking around your sore knee.

We numb our patients’ knees and use Lidocaine to minimize any discomfort during the injection. Many patients report feeling a little pressure but no pain during the treatment.

Arthritis Knee Brace

Supportive Unloader Bracing for Arthritis

Often, patients are fitted for an off-loader knee brace that uniquely supports their knee movement and gait. These braces are light, comfortable, and supportive. Wearing our knee braces helps provide stability, improves stability, and supports the healing process.

With these effective treatment protocols in place, our patients often experience immediate pain relief. Without the excruciating pain hobbling their movement, they can be more active and independent.

Knee braces are specifically designed to redistribute pressure in the knee joint, relieving arthritis. An unloader knee brace effectively transfers stress from the affected side of the joint to the healthier side, reducing discomfort and promoting better mobility.

Reasons to Choose Our Unloader Knee Braces for Knee Pain Treatment

Our state-of-the-art unloader braces offer several benefits:

  1. Enhanced knee stability: By wearing our braces, you will experience increased steadiness while standing or walking.
  2. Weight shifting: The brace effectively redistributes your body weight away from the affected area, relieving pain and allowing you to engage in daily activities.
  3. Slows disease progression: By reducing pressure on the knee, our braces minimize joint wear and tear, slowing down the progression of the disease.
  4. Complements injections: Our advanced knee braces work in harmony with cushioning and lubricating injections to maximize their effectiveness.

When combined with precision viscosupplementation therapy, an unloader knee brace stabilizes the knee joint, improves comfort, and enhances mobility during use. These braces are specially designed with molded plastic, foam, and steel struts to limit lateral movement of the knee joint and provide comprehensive support. They are custom-fitted by AKPC-certified bracing specialists based on your unique gait and everyday activities, ensuring a precise fit for optimal results.

Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE) for Residual Knee Pain

An Effective Treatment Option for Secondary Knee Pain

Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE) is a cutting-edge procedure that offers relief to patients experiencing residual knee pain caused by prolonged knee inflammation. In patients with knee osteoarthritis, chronic inflammation can lead to the development of abnormal tiny blood vessels around the knee, resulting in pain.

How GAE Works and its Benefits

GAE effectively closes these abnormal blood vessels and eliminates the associated painful nerve fibers, providing fast and lasting relief. Unlike injections, GAE works in a unique way to alleviate pain. The procedure is safe, virtually painless, and typically does not require retreatment.

In patients with knee osteoarthritis, chronic inflammation can lead to the development of abnormal tiny blood vessels around the knee, resulting in pain.

Is GAE Right for Me?

GAE has shown great effectiveness in eliminating residual arterial knee pain, particularly for patients who have already received knee injections. Many individuals experience improvement within a few days after undergoing GAE.

Continuing Knee Injections

Yes, it is recommended to continue knee injections as they primarily target pain associated with inflammation and provide cushioning and lubrication to the knee joint, effectively treating pain caused by osteoarthritis.

The GAE Procedure

The GAE procedure is minimally invasive and involves no incisions. After numbing the skin, a small amount of medical contrast dye is injected, allowing the doctor to visualize the abnormal arteries in real time using X-ray imaging. Tiny sterile beads, about the width of a human hair, are then injected to block the abnormal arteries permanently.

Regain Your Active Lifestyle

If you are still experiencing residual knee pain after previous treatments, including knee injections, you may be a suitable candidate for GAE. Many individuals find GAE to be an effective supplemental option alongside other knee pain treatments, enabling them to return to the activities they love.
