Knee Injection Therapy

 

 

 Chronic knee pain is a serious medical problem that can limit your ability to fully experience and enjoy life. Such pain can be caused by a variety of factors, from injuries to inflammatory diseases. Osteoarthritis in particular, a painful condition which involves the breakdown of cartilage around the knee joint, often causes pain that is difficult to manage. As many as 40% of Americans older than 45 may suffer from this condition. While there is no cure for osteoarthritis, there are many proven methods to manage pain, alleviate swelling, and improve mobility. Sometimes when knee pain cannot be easily alleviated by self care, heat and ice, a knee brace, physical therapy, over the counter pain medications, or even prescription pain medications other treatments short of knee surgery become necessary. Research has found that knee injection therapy consistently provides the most pain relief for patients suffering from osteoarthritis. Knee injection therapy involves injecting the knee joint with an anesthetic, followed by substances such as hyaluronic acid or corticosteroids in order to alleviate pain and restore mobility for up to 6 months.  Hyaluronic acid cushions and lubricates the joint while corticosteroids primarily reduce inflammation and swelling. Sometimes some fluid needs to be removed from the knees first to reduce swelling, a process known as fluid aspiration. Knee injections are done relatively quickly, usually only requiring a few minutes and efficiently provide temporary relief from knee pain and inflammatory diseases. Knee injections are not a surgical procedure, and can be done right in the doctor’s office.

Expert from the conversation with Doctor Mikhail Korogluyev:

I had MD already, that's why I chose to study on US what was interesting for me and what I didn't know yet. I'm happy with my choice, for thus my abilities, both as a doctor & and a human being, multiplied. Officially, I have MD and DO, for pass both sets of exams here....

When I combined my osteopathic skills with injection skills, as well as invasive therapy, I became somewhat of a surgeon, as well as a specialist in pain management, dermatologist, gynecologist, ophthalmologist, specialist in treatment of high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, etc...
