No question, our knees are delicate instruments. And we abuse them on a daily basis. Knee pain is not fun. But you can effectively manage your knee pain with treatments at West Coast Center for orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine.
Treatment options can include over-the-counter or prescription pain medications, injections or surgery. Only your doctor can accurately diagnose the cause of your knee pain and recommend the right treatment option for you.

Knee injections are a viable option today.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) injections to patients experiencing pain due to osteoarthritis of the knee has been a successful treatment for more than 20 years. The injections help restore the cushioning and lubricating properties of the knee joint and can relieve pain for up to six months by replacing and increasing the naturally occurring HA in your knee joint. If you’re not ready for surgery and over-the-counter and prescription pain medications no longer provide pain relief, come and talk to Dr.Feder and ask us about hyaluronic acid injections as an option for managing your knee pain.
Here is how injections work:
Put some healthy joint fluid back into your knee
Known as viscosupplementation, which is the reintroduction of healthy lubricating and cushioning joint fluid into your knee, hyaluronic acid injections can provide you with up to six months of pain relief. Viscosupplementation helps return proper cushioning and lubrication function to the knee joint, addressing knee pain at the source of the problem. High Molecular Weight Hyaluronan is an FDA- approved, non-drug therapy made from ultra-pure natural hyaluronan, a naturally occurring lubricant found in healthy knee joints.
