Arthritic Knee and Treatment

Arthritic Knee and Treatment

 

At Core Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, we see many patients who have arthritis in their knee joint(s), and we know how painful and life altering the disease can be. Our number one goal is always to improve the pain scores and quality of life of each of our patients. Listed below are some of the non-surgical and surgical approaches we take when we treat the arthritic knee:

 

1. Physical Therapy

 

2. Lifestyle Modification
Weight loss, avoiding weight-bearing and aggravating activities, low-impact exercises, such as biking, swimming, etc.

 

3. Exercise
Exercise plans and activities prescribed to improve strength and flexibility without exacerbating pain.

 

4. Anti-inflammatory Medications
To decrease swelling in the joint and provide temporary pain relief.
Can include drugs taken by mouth, or by injection directly into the joint (like Corticosteroids).

 

5. Joint Fluid Therapy
A series of injections directly into your knee that will improve joint lubrication, function, and decreased pain.

 

6. Glucosamine/Chondroitin
Dietary supplement that may relieve arthritic pain.

 

7. Bracing
To provide external stability to the knee joint.

 

8. Arthroscopic Surgery
Minimally invasive procedure to remove debris or repair torn cartilage.

 

9. Total Knee Replacement Surgery
Surgical procedure that replaces all three components of the knee.
