CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Local doctors say as more of us are living longer, a common knee problem is causing a lot more pain and falls for many people.
It is a common knee problem, especially in those with arthritis—a feeling that you never know when your knee is going to give out when you step on it.
Dr. Angel Velazquez, a sports medicine specialist at OrthoCincy, spoke about what works and what does not when it comes to using those injections that usually help reduce pain and swelling in the knee. Local 12 asked if those shots work against this “knee giving out” problem.
“The injections don't help that, that is loss of proprioception,” said Velazquez. “Proprioception is the ability of your brain to send a signal to your muscle and your muscle reacts at the time that you want it to react.”
He says physical therapy will help this, but when the knee feels like it is going to give out, many people cannot do the therapy right away because the knee is swollen and inflamed.
“So, the first thing is to get the inflammation down, get them ready for the therapy, and then do the therapy, don’t cut corners, do it the right way, and then see if you can correct that,” said Velazquez.
If this sounds like a knee problem you have, you can reach out to Dr. Velazquez's team
