Knee pain can be excruciating and disabling, especially if gone untreated. The knee is one of the biggest joints in the body, and any injury to the bones, ligament, tendons, muscles, or fluid at this joint must be treated promptly.
Our knee specialists at NJ Spine and Wellness focus on non-invasive, conservative knee treatment. Our board-certified doctors work with our trained team of physical therapists, acupuncturists, and other experts to provide effective pain treatment services.
Whether your knee pain was caused by a sports injury, accident, trauma, or aging, our team is here to create an individualized care plan to relieve your knee pain and improve your mobility.
Conservative Knee Treatment
Surgery is not the only effective treatment option when you are experiencing knee pain. You can also obtain relief through conservative, non-surgical solutions that also provide effective relief from knee pain. At NJ Spine and Wellness, we work with our patients to mitigate pain with minimal disruption to their daily lives.
For instance, we may suggest physical therapy to help with:
- Improving range of motion
- Reducing stiffness and feelings of locking
- Strengthening knee muscles
- Improving balance and stability
- Improving surgical outcomes
Knee Surgery at NJ Spine and Wellness
Surgical treatment for knee pain may be necessary for certain conditions where there are serious ligament tears or where osteoarthritis has caused serious damage to the knee’s bones. While we prefer and promote conservative, non-invasive knee pain treatment, there are certain cases where knee surgery is necessary for permanent pain relief.
Some of these include:
- Torn meniscus repair
- Meniscus replacement
- Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction
- Microfracture for stimulating new cartilage growth
- Patellar tendon repair
