Rheumatic diseases affect your joints and muscles. Some, like osteoarthritis, are the result of wear and tear.
Osteoarthritis of the knee
Wear-and Tear arthritis, is a condition in which the natural cushioning between joints cartilage–wears joints away. Bones of the joints rub against one another with less of the shock-absorbing benefits of cartilage.Rheumatic Pains: “NOT ONLY RELIEVES PAIN BUT ALSO PREVENTS PROGRESSION OF ARTHRITIS”
Viscosupplementation or Synovia fluid
The procedure, called viscosupplementation or synovia fluid replacement injects a preparation of hyaluronic acid into the knee joint. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the synovial (joint) fluid. It acts as a lubricant to enable bones to move smoothly over each other and as a shock absorber for joint loads”
In recalcitrant cases,chronic osteoarthritis (OA) pain in the knee may not be effectively managed by either pharmacologic or non-drug therapies. A more successful painrelieving alternative in such cases might be radiofrequency (RF) ablation of certain nerves se
Radio frequency neurotomy sometimes used to reduce back and neck pain uses heat generated by radio waves to destroy specific nerves and stops the pain signals. Radio waves are delivered to the targeted nerves via a probe inserted through the skin, painlessly under local Anesthesia and guided into position using imaging scans. Researchers from University of Cincinnati, USA reported 50-60% pain relief at 4 weeks follow-up.rving the knee joint, according to recently reported research.
At Interventional Pain and Spine Centre, we are offering this modality of pain relief to patients:
- Who are not responding to medications;
- Who are not willing to undergo surgery or
- Who are not medically fit to undergo surgery.
