What Is Knee Injection Therapy?
A knee injection is a procedure to deliver pain-relieving medication directly to the affected part of your knee joint. The medication offers pain relief while improving your knee’s flexibility. Your doctor may recommend a medicated knee injection to delay a knee replacement.
Your knees are the largest and most complex joints in your body. The joints allow a variety of movements, such as flexion and extension. Your knees also provide lateral and medial rotation. As a result, your knees are vulnerable to injuries, such as ligament and tendon tears, dislocations and fractures. Normal wear and tear also may cause painful knee conditions, such as arthritis.
