Knee Pain Treatment Options Available in Nashville, TN
If you struggle with chronic knee pain and live in the Nashville, Tennessee, area, the team at Precision Pain Care may be able to help. Founded by Dr. Graf Hilgenhurst, a board-certified anesthesiologist and pain medicine specialist, and we specialize in several innovative, minimally invasive treatments for knee pain and other symptoms. Whether your discomfort is relatively new and hasn’t responded to other conservative treatments or you’ve suffered from gradually worsening pain for many years and are at a loss for options, we are here for you.
Knee pain is common in people of nearly all ages. In some cases, this symptom can be associated with the natural aging process, while other people experience chronic pain as a result of a sports-related injury. To determine the most appropriate treatment option for you, the first step is to have our team conduct a thorough examination. Once we know where your pain is coming from, we can help you develop a personalized treatment plan to address it, which may help postpone or even eliminate the need for highly invasive surgery.
A few examples of the types of knee pain treatment that we offer in Nashville, TN, include:
- Steroid joint injection therapy – treatment used to interfere with the body’s ability to detect pain in the joint area
- Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP treatment) – a state-of-the-art regenerative treatment that entails injecting the patient’s own platelet-rich blood in the area around the knee to facilitate the natural healing process
Many of our joint pain procedures are performed using ultrasound or fluoroscopic imaging technology that allows Dr. Hilgenhurst and the staff to zero in on the precise source of the your pain.
While knee pain can be extremely frustrating, you should know that surgery and potentially addictive narcotics aren’t their only options.
