Knee Pain is caused by issues such as osteoarthritis, tendinitis, dislocation, torn ligament, and many other things. Every patient has a different experience with knee pain, and treatments are just as specific. If the pain becomes chronic, and does not go away on its own (see the Getting out of Pain article), you may need additional treatment.
Knee Pain Symptoms:
The symptoms of chronic knee pain are different for each person, and the cause for the knee pain often affects how the pain feels. Chronic knee pain may present as a:
- Constant ache
- Sharp, shooting pain when in use
- Dull burning discomfort
- Chronic swelling and pain when the knee is touched
Each underlying cause of chronic knee pain has a specific type of treatment.
Hyaluronic Acid Injection
If you are suffering from Osteoarthritis, and Dr. Omar determines that a Hyaluronic Acid Injection is right for you, then this is what to expect: Hyaluronic Acid is used as a sort of lubricant between the knee joints. When injected, it cushions the joints and absorbs shocks so that you can enjoy everyday activities again.
Hyaluronic Acid is a natural fluid that occurs in your joints already. This may be a solution if you cannot take painkillers or anti-inflammatory medicines, or if you are unable to have something more invasive like a knee replacement surgery.
