Knee Pain Treatment from the Multidisciplinary Team at Tampa General Hospital
If you’re suffering from a knee condition, there are a number of knee pain treatment strategies available. These include:
- Oral medications
- Corticosteroid or other injections
- Physical therapy
However, the best course of action is dependent upon a wide variety of factors, such as your general health, age, and the nature and severity of your knee condition. If your physician determines that orthopedic surgery is the most appropriate treatment option for you, it’s important to choose an orthopedic specialist with a high level of experience performing the type of procedure you need.
