Cortisone Knee Injections

Cortisone is a cortisol steroid that eases pain and swelling. When the knee joint is painful, swollen, and inflamed, these shots can be extremely effective in reducing inflammation and pain. With targeted injections, the medication is delivered directly to the inflamed area of the knee. The relief from pain typically starts to appear within a day or two and lasts for several weeks or longer.

How Do Joint Injections Work?

The product we use for joint injections in Southlake is called Decadron, a corticosteroid recommended for the management of pain associated with osteoarthritis. The medication is a human-made version of a hormone the body produces to reduce swelling and inflammation. 

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) Knee Injections

If you have already tried corticosteroid injections with little to no improvement, you may be a good candidate for PRP injections. The knees are always in motion, and the cartilage that keeps the joint working smoothly wears thinner over time. As the thinning progresses, it can lead to bone on bone, which causes inflammation, pain, and swelling. PRP injections are a natural, regenerative option that could improve your condition. 

What is PRP?

PRP is created from a sample of your own blood, which is processed to concentrate the healing growth factors.

The concentration of the natural growth factors in the serum could delay further loss of cartilage. 

If your knees have caused you trouble, it may be to your benefit to receive joint injections in Southlake before the condition worsens. PRP injections are safe, as the PRP is derived from your own blood and is recognized by your body. Corticosteroid injections are effective but can only be performed three or four times a year.

How Do PRP Joint Injections Work?

The comfort and mobility of the knee joint are related to the condition of the cartilage in the joint, called articular cartilage. The PRP triggers cell migration, proliferation, differentiation, and the natural production of more knee cartilage cells.
