Your knee is the largest and most complex joint in your body. Any injury or age-related wear to this joint leads to pain, reduces your mobility and affects your quality of life. A third of Americans report experiencing knee pain at some point in their lives. This is the second-most common cause of chronic pain behind lower back pain. There are many causes of knee pain, from regular wear and tear to knee injuries.
Your knee joint plays a critical role in most physical activities. When it hurts, you can’t easily stand or walk, let alone jump, run, hop, slide or jog. The joint allows four main movements, namely extension, flexion, lateral rotation and medial rotation. Basically, you can bend you knee, extend your leg and rotate the joint a bit.
Given the complexity of the knee joint, you need to see a specialist if you experience any nagging pain. Dr. Amr Hosny and a team of experienced knee experts at the Spine & Rehab Group in New York City and northern New Jersey use cutting-edge equipment for knee pain diagnosis, treatment and knee pain relief.
Knee pain is a common complaint. Many people live with it through different pain management and home remedy solutions. But getting a diagnosis and medical review by a specialist is the best solution to avoid further complications and damage. Consult your knee doctor for a knee pain diagnosis If you notice symptoms such as:
Any of these symptoms or any other discomfort around your knee requires immediate attention by your doctor. Even if you’ve suffered only a minor injury, you can do more damage to the joint by ignoring the pain or treating it simply with over-the-counter pain medications.
With multiple parts in the knee joint, an injury or ailment delivers pain in a specific location within the joint. You can experience knee pain behind the knee, in front of the knee or on either side of the joint. Where the pain is located provides your doctor with clues as to the underlying cause. Common causes of knee pain include:
If you have rheumatoid arthritis, you may also suffer from hip pain and back pain. Your spine doctor at the Spine & Rehab Group examines your medical history and carries out tests to identify the cause of the pain. An accurate diagnosis is the first step toward effective treatment for knee pain. Your doctor then creates a personalized treatment plan.
While knee pain occurs mostly due to age and injuries, some factors increase your risk of an incapacitating knee condition, including:
Since knee injuries and ailments cause pain and limited mobility, your doctor may recommend lifestyle changes if you fall under these risk factors. Follow your doctor’s instructions to ensure a lasting solution to your pain.
I came to the spine and rehab group for my back and leg pain. I was able to get an appointment the same day I called. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The doctors were very knowledgeable and took time to explain what was causing my pain and answer all my questions. I felt comfortable having my procedure done in their state of the art surgery center, where the staff made you feel at ease. They are very easy to reach and available to answer all your questions.Narendra G. ★★★★★

These days it’s hard to find a professional, yet extremely caring physicians office, particularly in the field of Pain Management. Dr. Hosny, Dr. Chu, physician’s assistant Summer and the entire staff have managed to make this happen.

I went to Dr. Hosny with lower back pain. I spend many hours sitting in a truck for my job. After an hour or so I would get pain in my back. Since I am a truck driver, pain killers were not an option for me. After a few sessions with Dr. Hosny, I am pain free. The staff at New Jersey Pain Care Center and are wonderful and caring people. I would recommend anyone go to Dr. Hosny if they want real results.Jeff ★★★★★
I had gone to Dr. Hosny with severe back pain after spinal surgery. It was debilitating pain that stopped me from being able to function normally. Dr. Hosny suggested that I have a Spinal Cord Stimulator implanted in my back. It is the best thing I EVER did. I am so excited to be able to return to my normal life with no medication. My experience at the pain center was wonderful. The nurses were very understanding and kind.Glen ★★★★★
I have had back surgeries that provided me no relief from my pain. After a few treatments with Dr. Hosny, I have almost no discomfort. I have no need for my pain medication anymore, and have been able to go back to working out and enjoying activities with my family. I was pleasantly surprised at the treatment I received at New Jersey Pain Care Center. The staff is very nice, and treats you with respect. The facility is clean, bright and everything is brand new.Jen ★★★★★
I had been having pain in my neck for many years. I had been to other doctors and they all recommended that I have surgery. I was hesitant to get surgery, so I wanted one more opinion. I had a friend tell me about Dr. Hosny and New Jersey Pain Care Center. From the moment I met Dr. Hosny I knew he wasn’t your average doctor. He took the time to listen to my concerns about surgery, and he agreed. After my cervical radiofrequency, I have full range of motion back in my neck, and best of all, no pain.Sharon
