Frequently Asked Questions

1. What type of insurance do you accept?

  • We accept most major insurance plans however, the first consultation is free. Most insurance companies cover the treatments we provide.
  • If you do not have insurance, we offer payment plans (case by case), our front desk will be more than happy to assist you during your first visit.

2. What makes you different from any other place that treats knee pain?

  • The consultation is free
  • We offer x-rays in-office
  • We have braces in-house (for knees, hips, and back)
  • We utilize low dose x-ray fluoroscopic guidance to confirm needle placement prior to any injection of a medication or product.

3. Do I need a referral?

Not for the first consultation. If you do need a referral, the front desk will request it from your PCP during your first visit.

4. Can I start treatment the same day?

That depends on your insurance and what you and the dr discuss during your first visit.

5. Do you prescribe medication?

Our doctors do not prescribe medication however, I’d like to get you scheduled for a free consultation, so our dr can assess your pain.

6. I’ve had knee injections before, but they didn’t work for me.

All injections differ in viscosity (meaning the thickness) so although one injection didn’t work for you, we have other options that may. Also, not all doctor’s offices use fluoroscopic guidance, so they may have missed the mark.

From Our Patients

Confidence in Treatment

Precision Pain Relief

Every few months, I had been getting steroid injections in my knee. With covid concerns, my practitioner would no longer give the injections. I then got to the point I was severely restricted in my activities due to knee pain. I saw an ad on tv about this facility and was sort of embarrassed to call and make an appointment instead of going through my health care practitioner. I decided to go see what they had to say. The entire staff was very professional, everyone explained things well. The doctor did an excellent job of going over the procedure. I had 5 injections, a week apart each time, of hyaluronic acid. I’m four months out, and it’s been an absolute miracle! I was so afraid that my next step would be surgery, but this worked so well that I’m no longer considering that. I heartily recommend a consultation to see if it’s right for you.

Florence Rios

Wow Arthritis Relief Center is a dream come true. I was having bad pain twitching in my knee when I played hard tennis. With the incredibly accurate knee injections and specific activities use of the knee brace I can perform all physical activities and run six miles with no discomfort. Getting pain free injections every six months is so easy and rewarding. Many days I don’t even have to wear the knee brace. They are excellent at dealing with my health insurance provider to get me prompt treatment. If you want to stay active and pain free in your knees this is the place for you.
