The knee is one of the most common parts of the body to experience osteoarthritis, a form of arthritis in which the articular cartilage is damaged from general wear-and-tear. Cases of osteoarthritis of the knee have almost doubled over the last 50 years. While there is no direct cure for knee osteoarthritis, the condition can be managed with physical therapy, weight loss, and lifestyle changes. Severe pain might lead to the knee for a total knee replacement.
The menisci are the shock absorbers of the knee, helping your knee absorb the impact of walking and running while also helping with general stabilizing. Meniscus tears are common, as they usually become torn and frayed as a result of ageing, injury, and body weight. When an individual experiences a meniscus tear, this leads to chronic pain and feelings of instability. Tears to the meniscus very rarely heal on their own because of the natural lack of blood in the surrounding area.
The ACL or anterior cruciate ligament is a key soft tissue ligament in the stabilization of the knee joint, with the responsibility of keeping the knee in stable during rotational movement, but it’s also one of the most commonly damaged parts of the knee. Tears to the ACL usually occur during sports, in which sudden changes in direction and quick stops are involved.
Known medically as patellofemoral pain syndrome, runner’s knee or jumper’s knee is a knee condition common amongst runners, in which pain is felt around the front of the knee. Another condition referred to as runner’s knee is chondromalacia, in which the cartilage beneath the patella has worn away, leading to pain.
The Spine & Rehab group is led by one of the most trusted doctors in Union County and surrounding areas. Dr. Amr Hosny has dedicated a lifetime of professional experience working on knee pain and related conditions.
Dr. Hosny is a board certified and Harvard trained interventional spine specialist with training and experience in acclaimed medical institutions such as St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Center, Columbia University in NYC, and Harvard Medical School.
Decades of experience working with various cases of spinal pain means Dr. Hosny has seen it all. His commitment to helping patients reclaim their pain-free daily lives is embodied by the patient-centered approach we have at The Spine & Rehab Group. We work with each patient to create personalized treatment plans and ensure each individual’s road to recovery.
At The Spine & Rehab Group, we begin our treatment plans with electromyography (EMG) diagnosis. Along with X-rays, we use EMG to get a full understanding of a patient’s knee pain. EMG is a technology that “listens in'' on your muscles and nerves, helping our experts determine muscle pain or musculoskeletal pain, finding the site of the pain and learning more about the accompanying symptoms.
With EMG results, our board-certified knee specialists and physicians can learn the true nature of your knee pain. From there, our experts use the EMG results to map out your road to recovery and the most viable options to improving your comfort.
Non-surgical therapeutic injections of medications, such as viscosupplementation or anti-inflammatory medications, are one of the most sought after pain medicine options for knee pain. These direct injections provide almost instant pain relief and also decreased inflammation for long-term comfort. Our programs are driven by the principles of evidence based medicine where we exhaust non-surgical treatments as part of your treatment plan.
Interventional knee pain management embodies our holistic approach to pain and rehabilitation. We understand the risks of undergoing surgery and the debilitating effects this can have on patients. With interventional pain management, we offer patients an alternative way to deal with pain in the knees around their femur or tendon without having to undergo downtime or exposing themselves to risks and the possibility of a lesser quality of life post-surgery.
Exercise is often the last thing knee pain patients want to do but physical therapy is a crucial factor in your long-term recovery. Our physical therapy programs are created by our in-house board certified physical therapist, Bethany Weinmann. Our collaborative programs ensure that your knee-centered physical therapy sessions are created with your pain level and schedule in mind.
We integrate different disciplines such as strength training, joint mobilization, and postural alignment to help strengthen your knees and improve your overall strength. Patients who undergo our physical therapy programs often see a drastic improvement on their knee pain symptoms when done regularly.
Direct stimulation of the central nervous system can be especially helpful to patients suffering from knee pain. It is a great rehabilitative technique for both acute and chronic injuries. At The Spine & Rehab Group, our acupuncture sessions are performed by a licensed acupuncturist with years of experience working with knee pain patients. Hair-thin needles are inserted into the targeted area of your knee, with each session lasting anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes.
Acupuncture is a viable alternative to traditional western medicine, considering the patient’s level of pain. Patients who have undergone traditional knee or hip pain relief techniques such as physical therapy and massage therapy might find immediate and renewed relief with acupuncture. With this practice, direct stimulation of the central nervous system translates into a release of the body’s natural endorphins for instant pain relief.
What is the difference between chiropractic care and the treatments at The Spine & Rehab Group?
The Spine & Rehab Group has a holistic physical medicine treatment approach to knee pain. Compared to chiropractic clinics with musculoskeletal services, we offer a more extensive suite of services, including diagnostics and acupuncture.
We offer non-invasive to minimally-invasive procedures to help patients manage pain and improve their quality of life. Our board certified physicians don’t offer spinal alignment. Instead, we offer pain relief and rehabilitation through interventional knee techniques and steroid injections.
What other conditions do we treat?
We treat injuries and pains relating to the muscles and nerves including spinal cord injuries, after surgery care, and joint pain. We also work with the upper and lower extremities and help patients deal with anything from hip joint pain and bone fracture pain, to neck pain and ankle sprains and general foot care.
Our team also deals with more serious cases involving the spine including herniated disc pain, spinal stenosis, and other vertebrae-related illnesses and conditions.
Regardless of the condition, our treatment approach is always conservative-first and patient-centered. We also offer specialized treatment in the form of sports medicine and acupuncture.
Easy access to treatment facilities and diagnostic centers is crucial in maintaining a pain-free life. The Spine & Rehab Group’s Union County office is perfect for patients looking for an all-in-one center for pain management, diagnostics, and physical therapy.
As one of the most densely-populated counties in New Jersey and the whole United States, Union County offers its residents a variety of activities and experiences, but it is also home to countless individuals living with untreated musculoskeletal and spinal conditions.
Union County offers a unique blend of urban living and natural settings, and getting the most out of it means living pain-free from any back, neck, or other kinds of spinal pain. Explore through one of the many parks (like Mattano Park and Briant Park), stroll down Elizabeth River, or visit the Hawk Rise bird Sanctuary on the banks of the Rahway River. Never miss a beat of the Union County experience with pain holding you back.
Finally, living with untreated spinal pain can make everyday life difficult and certain activities impossible, particularly if you live alone. According to the United States Census Bureau, nearly a quarter of all Union County residents live alone, with almost 1 in every 10 being over the age of 65.
At the Spine & Rehab Group, we are committed to providing patients in Union County the best level of knee pain care and rehabilitation with a fully-equipped facility under the guidance of board-certified physicians.
