At MAPS Centers for Pain Control, we provide a wide range of non-surgical and minimally invasive treatments to provide true, long lasting relief for those suffering with chronic knee pain. Whether you’re grappling with Osteoarthritis of the knee, degenerative knee cartilage, a torn ACL or torn meniscus or just chronic knee pain,, our compassionate team of double board-certified physicians will do all they can to provide a knee pain treatment that is right for you.

Why Injection-Based Therapies?

There are times when surgery or knee replacement surgery is the only solution to your knee pain. But surgeries can be difficult. Rehab can be long and painful, your life is disrupted and there is always the possibility of complications or infection.

That’s why at MAPS we specialize in conservative, injection based knee pain treatments. Our physicians explore every possibility to provide true long-lasting knee pain relief while avoiding surgery. If after a full evaluation and treatment, our medical team determines that surgery is your best option, we will do all we can to guide you to a surgeon that’s right for you.

But our commitment, first and foremost, is to help you find knee pain relief without major surgery. If our non-surgical treatments don’t provide adequate relief, you can always resort to surgery. But once you commit to surgery, there is no turning back.

At MAPS, We Provide a Wide Range of Non-Surgical Injection Based Knee Therapies

At MAPS, we believe in personalized care. We’ll work with you to understand your specific situation and recommend the injection therapy that best fits your age, injury and goals.

With that in mind, our team at MAPS focuses on 4 key injection therapies.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Injections

Struggling with osteoarthritis(OA) knee pain? Hyaluronic acid injections might be the answer.

Often called the “wear and tear” arthritis, osteoarthritis or OA of the knee is the result of years of wear and tear that diminishes the synovial fluid that lubricates and cushions the knee joint. Eventually the joint can be reduced to bone on bone resulting in constant pain and limited mobility..

Through HA injections, we replenish the natural cushioning fluid that your body produces every day, leading to increased mobility and range of motion, reduced inflammation and a dramatic reduction in pain.

HA injections can be further enhanced through bracing to “unload” pressure on the knee allowing the knee joint to heal.. In addition, physical therapy can help strengthen the ligaments and muscles around the knee, adding to increased stability and better mobility.

FDA approved and proven to be effective for hundreds of thousands of patients over the years, HA injections are a great option for OA and other types of knee pain.

Growth Factor Injections

If you’re experiencing knee pain due to tendinitis or ligament injuries, conditions requiring tissue repair and regeneration, consider exploring a process that works to harness the body’s natural healing process known as Growth Factor Injections.

With this state-of-the-art approach, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient. That blood is then spun in a centrifuge to separate out the highly potent growth factors that exist naturally in your blood. These growth factors play a key role in your body’s natural healing process. The platelet rich blood is then reinjected into the affected area of the knee joint where it works to expedite healing and restore optimal function.

Since your own blood is used, and there are no other medicines or chemicals, growth factor injections are considered extremely safe and effective. Used around the world since the 1970’s, this treatment is endorsed by many professional athletes including Tiger Woods.

A 2017 study published by the Journal of Orthopedic Study and Research found that growth factor injections were more effective than any other form of knee injection therapy.

Steroid-Based Injections

To relieve inflammation and pain in the knee joints, it is common to use steroidal-based injections, also known as corticosteroid injections. These are particularly effective for acute or chronic inflammation in your knee joints, tendons, or bursae. Steroid based injections provide rapid but short-term relief by reducing inflammation and suppressing the immune response.

A steroid-based injection is often considered if you have not achieved sufficient pain relief from other conservative treatments, such as oral medications or physical therapy.
