Abstract

Knee osteoarthritis is a commonly diagnosed condition that is treated in a number of clinical areas. Surgical treatment is oftentimes contraindicated due to lack of advanced disease or comorbidities. Intra-articular hyaluronic acid injections and steroid injections have each demonstrated analgesic effects when used as treatment modalities in patients with knee osteoarthritis. There has been some controversy as to which treatment modality is more effective in terms of duration of pain relief.
