A study recently published in the famous British Medical Journal that shows up to 97% of people older than 50 with knee pain have arthritis EVEN THOUGH X-RAY DID NOT SHOW THE ARTHRITIS.
Because viscosupplementation (application of FDA approved medical lubricants), like all medical treatments, works the best in the earlier stages of arthritis. If you have any knee pain you should be checked out by an expert as soon as possible, rather than when the condition gets more advanced.
For those with really advanced Osteoarthritis, this is very important: We have had success with some patients who were told they were “bone on bone” and needed total knee replacement surgery. If this is your situation, do not hesitate to get evaluated and find out if NYC Pain MD treatment might help you avoid surgery.
One of the most rewarding moments for the NYC Pain MD staff is when a patient can relieve enough pain using NYC Pain MD methods to actually cancel surgery. While surgery is certainly necessary in some cases, most would rather avoid it if at all possible.
This may also be for you is you have tried other treatments such as NSAIDS (over the counter Advil, Aleve, Motrin, or Ibuprofen) and other anti-inflammatory medications, or viscosupplementation with Hyalgan, Suparz and Synvisc without success.
At NYC Pain MD our goal is to help you relieve enough pain to not only delay, but CANCEL surgery. Again, surgery is necessary in some cases, but should be avoided if at all possible.
