New Study on Common Knee Osteoarthritis Treatments and Avoiding Surgery

According to a recent news article about a study published by the
Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), a common treatment for knee
osteoarthritis may actually be making the condition worse. It has been found
that steroid injection for hip and knee osteoarthritis may lead to more joint
damage over time.  The study showed that
while steroid injections can provide temporary pain relief, they can also cause
more degeneration in the joint in the long run.

emphasizing the potential side effects of Cortisone injections and explaining
why the FDA limits the number of injections to only three per year due to these

Instead, we have been promoting the benefits of Hyaluronic
Acid (HA) injections, which act as a lubricant inside the knee joint, reducing
friction, inflammation, and cartilage breakdown, ultimately leading to pain
relief. Our goal is to help you avoid knee surgery by offering alternative and
effective treatments.

At Naperville Rehab Clinic, we understand that knee joint
and cartilage breakdown is often caused by muscle imbalances and misalignments
in the foot, ankle, and knee joint. 
These misalignments can lead to overuse and malfunction, resulting in osteoarthritis
of the knee and hip. Simply call us at
