Knee Therapy FAQ

What are the symptoms associated with knee pain?

If you experience any of these sensations in your knee when active or at rest, you may have an injury or condition that could benefit from medical treatment:

  • Pain or constant aching
  • Limited range of motion that pulls, clicks, grates, or hurts
  • Swelling, bruising, or warm inflammation
  • Discomfort that distracts you or limits your activities
  • Inability to bend or straighten your knee
How is knee pain treated?

Depending on your diagnosis, Dr. D’Alessio may recommend a wide variety of treatments that can include strengthening exercises, stretching, pain management shots, and injections to increase lubrication in your joint.

If the source of your pain is from reduced cartilage or bones rubbing together or against nerves, an orthovisc, or hyaluronic acid, gel injection could be beneficial.

What is a hyaluronic acid injection?

Hyaluronic acid is a lubricating substance made of molecules similar to your body’s naturally-occurring synovial fluid, which fills your joint sacs and allows for friction-free ease of movement.

These cutting-edge gelatinous shots are inserted directly into the joint so that the cushioning effect provides relief where you most need it.

Are there any risks involved with a hyaluronic acid injection?

Few risks are associated with this form of therapy for knee pain because the injection mimics molecules that are already naturally occurring in your body. It’s a healthy, natural replacement for joints that need additional lubrication.

It’s necessary that the injection is carefully placed in order not to damage nearby nerves, so you have a central nervous system expert like Dr. D’Alessio administer the shot.

What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid shots for knee pain?

Aging and overuse can degenerate joints and cause cushioning fluid to diminish. Hyaluronic acid injections rejuvenate your knees and return them to a youthful state. That reduces pain, improves movement, and allows you to enjoy your favorite activities with ease.

These therapies have fewer side effects and risks compared to invasive surgical procedures.

If you’re experiencing knee pain, schedule an appointment online with Dr. D’Alessio or call Montville Medspa & Pain Center to find out if injection therapy can help you.

Dr. D' Alessio and her staff are top notch in every way, a rarity in medical offices. Dr. D'Alessio is truly amazing and I am more than thrilled with my experience in the office and the work she did to balance imperfections on my face. I was a long time patient and close friend of NJ's top dermatologist until he died 5 years ago, I never thought I'd find anyone as talented again. I will be using as many services as I can in this office!

Got the sculpsure procedure done today and the service was amazing! I felt very relaxed and Dr. D’ Alessio was very informative about what I should expect during the process. Anyone looking to get any of the services done here I will definitely recommend. I drove all the way from Brooklyn, NY that’s how much I recommend it!!!
