Diagnosis and Treatment of Knee Pain
If you want to get rid of your knee pain and keep the pain away, you have to address the cause of the problem! This simple but profound truth is very seldom addressed in standard medical care today. Medications and injections although helpful in some cases for reducing pain do not protect your knee against future problems.. Even general knee exercise instructions will not get the job done.
We get lasting results with knee problems because we treat all the causative factors. Please watch these two short videos on two of the most common knee problems: meniscus problems and pain around the knee cap. You will see an approach that treats that actual cause of your problem.
Below the videos you we see a general list of the knee problems we treat. Call us if you have a question. (732) 698-7151
We treat meniscus injuries quite well in our office and have helped several people avoid surgery. The menisci are vital to the function of the human knee. Until the 1980's the lack of understanding of the crucial role of the menisci lead to the axiom "When in doubt, take it out". This resulted in many unnecessary surgical removals of menisci. Complete removal of a meniscus has been shown to cause severe arthritis in the knee. Currently, arthroscopic surgery has made it possible to remove parts of a meniscus, however, even removal or part of the meniscus will increase arthritis in your knee.
