At Performance Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, we offer two types of injections to treat acute and chronic joint pain for our patients. Cortisone injections, or steroid injections, diminish immune system activity and reduce inflammation. Visco injections help lubricate joints for greater ease of movement.
Steroid injections diminish immune system activity and reduce inflammation. In fact, steroids are often used to minimize inflammation for several inflammatory conditions in shoulders, elbows, hips, knees, hands and wrists, feet and ankles.
Knee osteoarthritis is a condition that can negatively affect your lifestyle. Fortunately, there are effective non-surgical treatment options available. One such effective treatment is visco-supplementation injections. The visco injections lubricate bones and help joint loads.
Our doctors are currently accepting new patients. To request an appointment, please use our convenient online scheduling system. We look forward to seeing you.

Dr. Diehl always listens and takes the most conservative approach for the injury rather than surgery first. He’s taken care of several of my sprains & falls. Highly recommend.
I really like Dr. Maurer. He is so down-to-earth and honest. I’ve learned to trust his advice and guidance because he cares about his patients.
Scheduling was quick, office staff was friendly and efficient and nurse and x-ray tech were friendly and thorough. Dr. Lessner was prompt and friendly. He made us feel comfortable and explained everything clearly and thoroughly.
This has been one of the best medical care experiences I’ve had, from our initial consultation to post-op visits to physical therapy. Dr. Diehl and his team are a very caring, friendly, and professional group. I had a left knee injury (meniscus and ACL tears). Thank you!!
Very impressed with Dr. Lessner. Very thorough and listened to me. He gave me multiple treatment options and involved me in the decision making. Highly recommend!
Dr. Diehl was very kind and caring. I don’t think there is a person in this office who is not professional and personable. They go above and beyond for their patients.
