Knee pain is unfortunately a common joint pain that afflicts many people. There are numerous treatments available to treat knee pain, including treating the geniculate nerves that surround the knee. The genicular nerves are the major nerve fibers that carry pain and sensory information from the knee to the brain. Arthritis or degenerative joint disease can cause inflammatory symptoms and chronic knee pain that is transmitted by genicular nerve fibers. A geniculate nerve block is an injection of an anesthetic mixed with a steroid or non-steroidal medication around the genicular nerves located around the knee joint.
The injection may reduce/eliminate chronic knee pain and other symptoms caused by osteoarthritis, joint degeneration, and post knee replacement. These injections can also provide relief when surgery is not recommended or desired. Click here to schedule an appointment.
