We all know it’s important to take care of our bodies but did you know that one of the most overlooked body parts that can be crucial to our well being is our knees. The knee is the largest joint in the body responsible for carrying all of our mass. Basic wear and tear over time can hinder the health of your knee. Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of knee injuries in ages 50+. But other common knee problems include pain on flexion extension, swelling and, tears in the meniscus. The pain of knee injuries doesn’t always originate in the knee. Any spine issues that add pressure on a nerve root as it exits the spine can cause pain to the knee or foot.
The first step in treatment is finding the source of the knee pain. AZ Pain Centers is unique as they use a non-steroidal substance that is an anti-inflammatory to help treat the source of the pain. If a steroid injection is used over time it will cause degeneration of that cartilage adding to the problem.
AZ Pain Centers can help determine the source and provide treatment of pain in areas including Fibromyalgia, headaches, back and neck pain, hand and wrist pain, joint and muscle, arm and shoulder pain, tennis elbow, sciatic pain, stomach and abdominal pain and more. You don’t have to live with pain. For information visit AZ Pain Centers online.
