IPI Pain Management offers non-operative options are available to treat knee pain and problems depending on the type and severity of the condition.
Radio Frequency Neurolysis
RFN uses heat to lesion and desensitize (turn off) specific nerves in order to stop them from releasing pain signals from a joint. Since the lesioned nerve regrows very slowly, patients can enjoy long-term pain relief for months or even years at a time. Ask for a consultation on your specific chronic pain case by contacting Interventional Pain Institute (IPI) at (229) 405-2470.
Platelet Rich Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an advanced treatment that can help repair and regenerate injured soft tissue and reduce pain. Multiple published scientific studies have confirmed the effectiveness of this therapy, and thousands of patients – including professional athletes – have benefited from PRP injections. PRP therapy may be an alternative to surgery. Ask for a consultation on your specific chronic pain case by contacting Interventional Pain Institute (IPI) at (229) 405-2470.
Stem Cell Therapy
Adult stem cell therapy can effectively treat many conditions ranging from degenerative arthritis to ligament and tendon injuries. Stem cell therapy at IPI may alleviate not only chronic pain but also dysfunction from arthritis and chronic injuries.
Dr. Fussell uses embryonic stem cells. These stem cells help to repair and regenerate wounded tissue. The procedure involves minimally invasive bone marrow extraction and image-guided injections to precisely target areas of injured tissue.
Prolotherapy is a complementary treatment for muscle and joint pain. The treatment involves repeated injections of an irritant solution into part of a joint — the joint’s interior, for example, or a supporting tendon or ligament. The irritant, usually a sugar solution, is thought to trigger growth in the connective tissue of the joint, eventually leading to reduced pain.
