Cortisone Injection to Treat Excessive Knee Pain
Ortho Four States staff is helpful, polite and timely. I appreciated the friendly reception I experienced from everyone. I had fallen before coming out to visit my son and his family in the Joplin area. When my knee pain continued to worsen, my daughter-in-law told me about Ortho Four States and asked if she should try to schedule an appointment for me even though I would only be in town for one week. And just like that, they got me in right away. The doctor took images of my knee showing various angles, which my doctor back in Santa Barbara had not done. I was relieved to learn that my knees were in great shape and there was no damage. I just had a lot of internal bruising from the fall. They gave me a cortisone injection that enabled me to walk without a painful limp. I was able to enjoy the rest of my visit without worry and debilitating pain. They even gave me the images and a recap of the exam that I could share with my Orthopedist back home. I wish we had a facility like Ortho Four States in Santa Barbara. They really have everything right at their fingertips.
Before Treatment at Ortho Four States:
I was in so much pain I was almost immobilized.
