Knee joints are prone to painful injuries and disease. Worn cartilage, inflamed bursa, sprained ligaments and other knee conditions can cause acute or chronic pain and limit mobility. If you are suffering from knee pain and want relief, knee injections may be the solution. Ospina Medical in Midtown Manhattan offers effective pain management and interventional orthopedic knee therapies for many types of joint conditions.
"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
CAUSES OF KNEE PAIN
The knee is a complex joint that is under excessive stress. The components in the knee are constantly under pressure from the weight of the body. Sudden or extreme movements can injure tendons or ligaments and repetitive motions can result in ongoing wear or tear of the joint cartilage. Injuries to the knee are common, and the knee is one of the most common joints to suffer from osteoarthritis. Knee pain can be caused by strains, sprains, tears and degenerative diseases, most of which can cause inflammation and pain in the joint.
INJECTIONS FOR KNEE PAIN
Relieving inflammation in the joint can minimize pain for many knee conditions. Severe ligament sprains may be treated with anti-inflammatory injections to reduce swelling for pain relief. Joint inflammation from degenerative diseases, like osteoarthritis, can also be relieved with knee injections of local anesthetic and steroids. While anti-inflammatory knee injections do not cure the cause of pain, they can stop it at its source and reduce the need for harmful opioids or other pain medications.
Interventional orthopedic knee injections can offer the slowing down of a degenerative disease or speed up healing during injury recovery. The injections can provide stimulation of tissue repair to help relieve pain and improve knee function.
