Knee Pain Treatment

The knees experience considerable stress since these bear the weight of the upper body. Over a period of time, pain may develop in the knee area. This can make movement difficult, and interfere with one’s routine activities. At HealthQuest, Brooklyn, New York, pain management physicians take the matter seriously and provide effective knee pain treatment. Whether patients come in for acute knee pain treatment or chronic knee pain treatment, they experience substantial relief.

Knee Pain

Accidents, sports related knee injury, slips and falls can result in knee pain which requires timely medical attention. This is because there may be more serious conditions such as the following, which may go unnoticed and cause problems in later stages.

Diagnosing the Root Cause of Knee Pain

A proper treatment plan can be implemented only after physicians diagnose and understand the reason for the pain. An x-ray or MRI of the knee may be required for accurate diagnosis, after which appropriate treatment procedures are recommended to help alleviate pain.

Treatment for Knee Pain

Most types of knee pain are treated using conventional techniques. A combination of treatment techniques may be needed depending upon the type of pain and its intensity.

  • Rest – helps minimize pain and attain speedy recovery
  • Ice and Heat Application – helps to reduce the intensity of pain and swelling
  • Stretching and Therapeutic Exercises – to prevent re-injury and strengthen the muscles that support the knee
