Press release from: Pain Recovery Center of Tyler

Pain physicians estimate millions of Americans suffer from chronic knee pain at any given time. In fact, cases of chronic knee pain have dramatically increased over the past 20 years as adults decide to remain active well into their older years. The complexity of the knee joint may make it more difficult to both diagnose and treat a knee injury or condition, often leading to chronic pain, swelling and overall discomfort. A genicular nerve block is an innovative, non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment option for chronic knee pain. Pain Recovery Center of Tyler now offers this cutting-edge treatment, along with traditional pain management options, to the greater Tyler, Texas area.

Chronic knee pain can be caused by numerous conditions, such as osteoarthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, cartilage injuries and other soft tissue injuries. The first step in addressing chronic knee pain is to determine where the pain is located within the joint, severity of pain and what activities cause increased or diminished pain. Once a pain physician reaches a diagnosis, pain management treatment options will be discussed with the patient. Certain patients visiting Pain Recovery Center of Tyler will begin with traditional treatment options, such as the use of medications, physical therapy or a detailed exercise plan.

Innovative therapies, such as a genicular nerve block, continue to gain popularity as a safe and effective chronic knee pain treatment. A genicular nerve block, also known as a genicular neurotomy, is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure designed to alleviate chronic pain when traditional pain management treatments have failed.

A genicular nerve block utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy to the genicular nerves. The genicular nerves play an important role by carrying pain signals from the knee joint to the brain and central nervous system.

A genicular nerve block begins by placing a small amount of local anesthetic on the genicular nerves. If a patient experiences alleviated pain, a radiofrequency ablation of the genicular nerves is then performed. This form of treatment typically alleviates pain and discomfort in a short amount of time with little to no complications or downtime.

Pain Recovery Center of Tyler continues to offer the most innovative treatments for pain, including chronic knee pain. Our pain physicians are dedicated to finding the best solution for each patient, whether through new or traditional treatments. If you live in the greater Tyler, Texas area and are interested in alleviating chronic knee pain, please contact our team at (903) 526-5000 or visit our website: www.paincentertyler.com.
