Knee Pain. There are three common types of injections that may help you get pain relief:
Corticosteroids – This steroid is especially beneficial for treating knee pain caused by osteoarthritis. The corticosteroids are injected right into the knee joint. It is anti-inflammatory and will also help to provide lubricant to the knee joints.
Hyaluronic acid – This injection provides you more of the type of fluid that is naturally found in your knees. Osteoarthritis tends to reduce the amount of hyaluronic acid in your knees. Adding more increases the ability of the joint to reduce shock, and it also lubricates the joint.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) – This recent treatment uses your blood; and then the plasma is separated from the red blood cells. It is especially valuable because platelets are known to speed up the healing process. Once the plasma is obtained, it is injected into the knee. It will also help to reduce inflammation in the area.
