Knee Pain Treatments Nj

Knee pain caused by a knee injury or other knee condition can be not only very painful but disabling if left untreated for a long period of time. The knee is made up of multiple parts that can be affected in a knee injury or knee condition including cartilage, bones, tendons, fluid and ligaments.

The group of Knee Pain Doctors at The Spine & Rehab Group in New Jersey concentrates on the non-surgical treatment of knee pain and knee injuries. Our Board Certified Doctors work together with a team of experts including highly trained and skilled Physical Therapists for knee pain, Certified Acupuncturists and Massage Therapists.

The severity of your knee condition depends on how the injury occurred. Often, knee injuries are seen in athletes or people who participate regularly in sports activities. Other knee pain can arise from injuries due to falls and slips. In addition to an injury, there are medical conditions that affect the knees and require non-surgical intervention.

The team of specialized Knee Pain Specialists at The Spine & Rehab Group offers non-surgical treatments in both Manhattan and New Jersey for knee pain, knee injuries and knee conditions. Non-surgical treatment for the knee includes:

Physical Therapy – One-on-one Physical Therapy treatment plans are created for the treatment of your knee pain or knee injury by your team of knee pain doctors. Physical therapy is often an effective treatment for knee pain by helping to strengthen the muscles surrounding the knee and improve range of motion.

Anti Inflammatory Medication – The use of anti-inflammatory medication, or NSAIDS, may be recommended to decrease inflammation of the knee and reduce pressure associated with knee pain.

Interventional Pain Management – Relief of knee pain using non-surgical pain management treatments may be recommended. In-office injections for the knee can help relieve pain and also help with cushioning of the joints.

Alternative Treatments – Treatments such as Acupuncture and Medical Massage may be helpful in the relief of knee pain and lend to the healing process and recovery.
