Knee Pain Treatment Options Available at New Jersey Joints in Freehold, NJ
Knee pain treatment usually involves nonsurgical therapies like exercise and medication, especially if a physician determines that the discomfort is caused by a strain or contusion, which are the most common types of knee injuries. However, more serious conditions like ligament and meniscal tears may require arthroscopy or joint replacement surgery to help ensure a full recovery and return to function. Residents of Freehold, NJ, have convenient access to a full range of nonsurgical and surgical treatment options from an experienced team of fellowship-trained surgeons and in-house physical therapists at New Jersey Joints.
To confirm that each patient’s knee pain treatment plan fully addresses his or her unique needs, a physical therapist at New Jersey Joints will work hand-in-hand with the patient’s treating physician. Together, they will assess the underlying cause of the discomfort and determine if the patient could benefit from conservative treatment before any type of surgery is considered. For instance, some options that many patients find to be very effective include:
- Physical therapy
- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
- Massage therapy
- Dry needling
- Hyaluronic acid injections
- Stem cell therapy
