Have knee pain? Pain Control Associates can help! Have physical therapy,
steroid, or gel injections stopped working? Traditionally, the
options to control knee pain were very limited due to the high impact
on the joint. However, Pain Control Associates has introduced a new
therapy to Northwest Indiana that can delay the need for a total knee
replacement, enable pain relief for nonsurgical candidates, or
provide pain control for individuals that have continued pain after a
total knee replacement.
Genicular Nerve Blocks and Radiofrequency ablation are minimally invasive
procedures that can decrease knee pain signals to the brain. The
procedure itself takes minutes and carries very little side effects
since the nerves course outside the knee capsule. This is ideal,
because this therapy can be used in conjunction with a knee
replacement and does not have any recovery period. Additionally,
these nerves do not control sensation of the skin or the motor
function of the knee.
Have questions or think you would benefit from this therapy? We at
Pain Control Associates would gladly explain the procedure in detail
and determine if you are candidate! We have locations in Schererville,
Crown Point, Valparaiso, Munster, Hobart, and Olympia Fields.
