Treatment for Knee Pain in NYC
We can provide patients suffering from knee pain with a multitude of diagnostic and treatment options. We find that cold laser therapy for knee pain works best.
Our staff of specialists work together as a team, to treat pain, heal joints and rehabilitate injuries, all under one roof.
Your knees are the most hard-working joints in the body, and as such, are highly susceptible to injury. Patients can experience knee pain due to a number of reasons, including injury, arthritis, advanced age, obesity, and more, which affect patients of all age groups and activity levels.
However, athletes and runners are at high risk of experiencing knee injuries due to constant high-impact activity. Any of these circumstances can cause stiffness, pain, and loss of normal function and mobility, and we offer a wide range of non-surgical treatments to safely and effectively provide pain relief and restore wellness.
Types of Knee Disorders
We frequently and successfully treat patients who suffer from knee pain in NYC and want to avoid surgery (or enhance the effects of previous surgical procedures) by offering customized treatments for many knee disorders, including:
- Torn/Ripped Ligaments (ACL, MCL, PCL, meniscus)
- Trauma (due to trips, falls, sports, etc.)
- And more
Non-Surgical Knee Pain Treatments
The staff at our state-of-the-art NYC physical rehabilitation facility is highly trained in the treatment of knee injuries and is certified to address soft and hard tissue conditions that cause pain and discomfort. Our team includes a board-certified medical doctor, chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, acupuncturists, and a neurologist. Below is a sampling of our most popular non-surgical therapies for the treatment of knee pain:
X-rays: We provide in-house radiology services to detect any possible fractures, fissures or deformities.
Physical Therapy: A customized exercise regime helps patients regain strength, function, and mobility of the knee by using the latest techniques and equipment.
Cold Laser Therapy: A painless low-level laser restores damaged soft tissue at the cellular level to reduce inflammation and pain while accelerating tissue regeneration and recovery time. We specialize in cold laser therapy for knee pain at our West Village / Soho Manhattan sports medicine clinic.
Joint Fluid Therapy: Especially effective for runners and arthritic patients, these non-narcotic injections restore lost fluid to the knee joint, necessary for proper shock absorption. The solution mimics the naturally-occurring lubricating fluid in the knee to improve mobility and eliminate pain.
Soft Tissue Mobilization: Our staff is licensed in ART® (Active Release Techniques) and the Graston Technique®, which are manual and instrument-assisted therapies that help remove scar tissue and heal damaged soft tissue in the knee.
Kinesio Taping: Through specialized application of a patented tape, patients experience improved stability, circulation, and range of motion, as well as prevent further damage. Kinesio taping assists in protecting injured knees during recovery and is used by many professional athletes for its protective and performance-enhancing abilities.
Orthotics: Custom-made orthotic insoles aid in correcting knee imbalances, improve comfort when walking and prevent future injury.
