CHRONIC JOINT PAIN TREATMENT
Every joint in the body has a critical function to allow for a wide range of motions. Repetitive movements, disease, injury and other factors can cause disruption and deterioration in the joints, resulting in chronic pain and mobility issues. Arthritis and other problems can contribute to joint problems that impact your quality of life. Our experienced interventional pain specialists at Ospina Medical offer chronic joint pain treatment utilizing advanced options in pain management and interventional orthopedics.
When joint pain continues for months on end, it is considered chronic. Arthritis or inflammation in the joints is a common cause of chronic joint pain. Injuries can cause acute pain that may lead to arthritis or deterioration with aging. Bursitis, cartilage loss, reduced lubrication, strained ligaments, tendon problems and other issues all can result in joint pain. Identifying the cause is essential to creating an effective chronic joint pain treatment plan.
Shoulders, knees and elbows are the most common joints to suffer from bursitis. Repetitive movements of these or other joints can cause bursae inflammation, or bursitis. If you have inflamed, painful major joints, you may be suffering from bursitis. Our pain specialists at Ospina Medical offer effective bursitis treatment and excellent patient care at our medical clinic in Midtown Manhattan.
There are over 150 bursae in the body that protect bones and other components during movement. These fluid-filled sacs provide protection and cushion when ligaments, tendons and muscles slide over the bones when movement occurs. When irritation or injury to the bursae causes inflammation during repetitive movement or pressure, the affected bursa can become swollen and painful. While not all bursae are in joints, major joints are the most common place for bursitis.
JOINT REPLACEMENT PAIN TREATMENT
Joint replacement surgery is performed on millions of people each year in the US. Total joint replacements, or arthroplasty (TJA), for hips, knees and other joints account for a million of these surgeries. While TJA can offer pain relief and improved mobility for many patients, they are not always successful. Many people who have had TJA or other joint replacement surgeries do not obtain the relief they desired. Ospina Medical in New York City offers joint replacement pain treatment for those suffering with discomfort from these joint procedures.
There is major concern about opioid use to manage post-operative pain in joint replacements. Opioids are usually prescribed to relieve pain during recovery after surgery, but many patients continue using these medications for months, even years, after their joint replacement procedure. When there is ongoing joint replacement pain, treatment options that reduce or eliminate opioid use should be considered to minimize health risks.
"Dr. Maniam is great and you took care of my knee. My knee feeks great and i can walk again. The visit was beautiful and they treat me with respect."- K.D. / Google / May 18, 2021
"On first arrival Dr. Kohler and his staff at Ospina Medicine were warm and welcoming. He was precise in his knowledge and explained all parts of both my pain management due to previous injury, and preventative measures for future treatment. Their New York City based state of the art technology and contemporary office made me feel at ease immediately. As someone with continual back pain, and as someone who wants to avoid opioid treatment, the very nature of Ospina Medical using non-opioid approaches to pain management for me was a big bonus. The results have been brilliant, and I am so pleased to have Dr. Kohler to help me through my pain management process."- M.M. / Google / May 17, 2021
"The nicest people, the best care. I feel so much better already. Would recommend to any and all friends, dancers, athletes, who are having pain."- C.J. / Google / May 14, 2021
"Dr Maniam and his staff are excellent. Renya at the front desk is always friendly and makes me feel comfortable. There’s a real sense that they care about their patients. I’ve had numerous spinal epidural‘s and radio frequency ablations, they’ve been painless and have gotten excellent results. This is the best pain management group that I’ve been to and I’ve been to more than a few... I highly recommend Ospina!"- M.G. / Google / May 14, 2021
"I've had 3 cortisone injections with Ospina and I'm amazed by the care they take when applying the injections. I can't believe how well it works and what good care they take of me. (I had received an injection somewhere else and it was more painful, bruised badly, and didn't last near as long.) I will ONLY go to Ospina now. The staff and doctors are truly WONDERFUL. Don't hesitate!"- P.G. / Google / Apr 30, 2021

PAIN RELIEF FOR SWOLLEN JOINTS
Continued leaning on elbows, repeated throwing motions in the shoulder or kneeling are common instigators of bursa irritation. Workplace repetition or sports injuries are often to blame for bursitis. The joint can become red and swollen, limiting mobility and causing intense joint pain.
Reducing inflammation in a swollen bursa can help relieve the pain of bursitis. Conservative treatments for mild to moderate bursitis can include icing the joint to relieve swelling and using nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs. If bursitis pain continues, come see our pain specialists at Ospina Medical. We offer bursitis treatment, which may include steroid or anti-inflammatory injections to relieve pressure on painful joints.
If you need relief from a swollen knee, shoulder, elbow or other joint caused by bursitis, contact our medical team at Ospina Medical. We offer advanced treatments for joint pain, including bursitis treatment at our clinic in New York City. Contact us to schedule your appointment for an exam and bursitis treatment.
POST-SURGERY PAIN RELIEF
At Ospina Medical, we focus on offering opioid-sparing pain management for our patients. While opioids may be used for relieving pain immediately after joint replacement surgery, these drugs can pose health and fatality risks with long-term use. We utilize advanced options in pain management to address the source of the pain and replace opioid use. Our joint replacement pain treatments are customized to each patient to address their specific symptoms and offer long-term relief when possible.
Joint replacement problems can cause ongoing pain and impact mobility. If you had a knee, shoulder, hip or other joint replacement surgery and suffer from ongoing pain, contact our interventional pain specialists at Ospina Medical.
