NON-INVASIVE KNEE PAIN THERAPY
KNEE PAIN TREATMENTS IN ROSWELL, GA
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis in the US, and one of the most frequent causes of physical disability. If you're affected, you're not alone! OA affects over 30 million people in the US - that's nearly 1 out of every 10 people. In particular, when osteoarthritis develops in the knee, it can cause pain, discomfort, and affect mobility for even the most simple tasks. While not everyone with osteoarthritis feels pain, each symptom deserves sincere attention.
At Georgia Health Clinics, we are passionate about assisting those who are suffering from knee pain. We offer a ground breaking, non-surgical approach for knee pain that eliminates the need for surgery, steroids, long recovery times, or prescription medications. Thousands of people have been helped to avoid the risks of knee replacement surgery at our office by assisting them in overcoming pain and returning to a more active and healthy lifestyle.
Our goal is to alleviate knee pain without the need for invasive surgery or extensive rehabilitation. The FDA has approved our treatment regimens, which are based on the most recent medical research.
COMMON SIGNS INCLUDE
Weakness or instability
Mild to severe joint pain
Swelling and tenderness
Stiffness after getting out of bed
"Crunching" or grinding feeling
Sound of bone rubbing on bone
Knee pain and inflammation can force your entire life to slow down - maybe you’ve had to change your routines or stop doing things you love. If you’re experiencing pain or discomfort while standing, walking, climbing stairs, getting in and out of chairs, stiffness after periods of rest, weakness, instability, or swelling, rest assured we can help.
With the help of medical science, there are now a wide range of treatments available. While OA is not curable, there are effective treatment options that can reduce pain without invasive surgery or addictive pain medications. When every step feels like a challenge, you need someone to lean on. Let us help! One solution currently rising in popularity is called viscosupplementation.
VISCOSUPPLEMENTATION NEAR ME
PAIN RELIEF + IMPROVED MOBILITY
Viscosupplementation has been FDA approved since 1996. This 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 lubricant and shock absorber. Many of our patients feel better shortly after their first therapy.
TYPES OF VISCOSUPPLEMENTS: HA or PRP?
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) might sound strange - but it is a common substance, similar to the one that occurs naturally in the joints. It works by acting like a lubricant and shock absorber in the knee and helps it to work properly. Medicare and most other insurance companies cover this treatment, as it is well known for it's efficacy.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is another option for knee pain relief. It is extremely popular among celebrities and athletes, not only for joint health, but for faster recovery and beauty enhancements. While it is not covered by insurance, research shows it is more effective, and generally provides longer lasting results than HA. If you don't have insurance, or prefer this natural option, PRP may be your ideal solution.
HOW IT WORKS
We inject viscosupplement gel directly into the knee joint, using state of the art guided imaging. The gel acts to replace depleted cartilage in the knee, providing excellent cushioning and shock absorption. By using advanced digital imaging to precisely guide our injections, we remove the guesswork for trustworthy results. Our therapy is a scientifically proven alternative to painful, expensive surgery for many. If you're a candidate, it may alleviate your knee pain.
FUN, HIGH TECH COMFORT AT OUR ROSWELL OFFICE
IMMERSIVE VIRTUAL REALITY DURING TREATMENT
Our clinic uses the latest technology to ensure your comfort and procedure accuracy. Our patients enjoy using the newest Oculus Virtual Reality Goggles (VR) during a variety of treatments! Our VR devices provide immersive, realistic, 3D experiences that virtually transport you into exciting, positive, and enriching environments. VR is known to help alleviate anxiety about treatment, so we encourage this multi-sensory experience to allow you to relax and enjoy your time!
WHAT TO EXPECT
First, you'll be seated and relax in a plush and comfortable treatment chair. You may request to use the newest model of Oculus VR Goggles to enhance your experience if you have anxiety (or enjoy VR!)
After the area is sterilized and numbed for comfort, we will view a live ultrasound image to properly guide and administer the medication, (HA or PRP) which will act as a shock absorber or lubricant. A small bandage will be placed over the injection site when complete. Treatment is fast, completely painless.
You may receive a single treatment or weekly treatments for several weeks depending on your needs, accompanied by physical therapy if needed. Consultations are completely free; if treatment is accepted, insurance may cover treatment completely or may require a copay.
Viscosupplementation is an excellent way to relieve pain without medication or getting surgery. Don’t wait until your injury worsens! Call Georgia Health Clinics at 678-203-1323 and ask what we can do for you.
OSTEOARTHRITIS TREATMENTS IN ROSWELL, GA – KNEE PAIN RELIEF NEAR ME – NON-INVASIVE KNEE PAIN TREATMENTS IN ROSWELL
I have arthritis in both of my knees. I tried cortisone shots, prescribed drugs and even physical therapy over the years with some mild success, but I was still taking pain relievers every day. My doctor said the next step would be surgery, but I knew I could not take the time off of work needed to recover. I felt trapped by the whole situation.
A week later, my friend mentioned a new clinic his daughter was working at and recommended I stop by for a free consultation. I had nothing to lose, so I went, and was amazed! The staff were so professional, and took the time to listen to me. I could tell they really cared. We went over my injuries and treatment options in detail, and I felt good about moving ahead with their suggestions.
After several treatments, I’m now able to walk longer and faster than ever. My inflammation is almost completely gone, and I have no more pain in my knees. I recommend Georgia Health Clinics to everyone I know! Thank you for giving me my life back!
