Understanding Pain From Knee Osteoarthritis

This type of pain stems from the degeneration of joint cartilage, joint inflammation, and bone structure changes.

Common symptoms include:

All of these symptoms can significantly impact daily activities and quality of life.

Is Managing Osteoarthritis Pain Possible?

Yes, managing this type of knee pain is possible with a combination of lifestyle modifications, non-surgical interventions, and targeted osteoarthritis knee treatments. These approaches aim to reduce discomfort, improve joint function, and enhance overall well-being.

How to Manage Osteoarthritis Knee Pain

Effective pain management involves:

  1. Lifestyle Modifications: Maintain a healthy weight to reduce joint stress, engage in regular low-impact exercises to strengthen muscles and improve joint flexibility, and use assistive devices if needed to support mobility.
  2. Physical Therapy: Customized physical therapy programs focus on strengthening muscles around the knee, improving joint stability, and enhancing range of motion. Therapeutic exercises and techniques help alleviate discomfort and improve overall function.
  3. Medications: Over-the-counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can help manage mild to moderate pain and reduce inflammation. Prescription medications may be recommended for severe discomfort or inflammation.
  4. Injections: Corticosteroid injections temporarily relieve inflammation and relieve pain. Hyaluronic acid injections (viscosupplementation) help lubricate the joint and improve joint function.
  5. Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE): This minimally invasive procedure targets the genicular arteries supplying blood to the knee joint. By blocking these arteries, GAE reduces inflammation and pain signals from the knee, offering significant relief for patients.

At Georgia Knee Institute, we offer comprehensive treatment options, including GAE, to effectively address knee osteoarthritis and improve our patient’s overall quality of life.
