The knee is a fragile and sensitive joint of the lower limb which plays a vital role in the body’s stability and motion. Severe or mild pain in the knee requires immediate medical attention. HealthQuest is a multi-specialty healthcare center in Brooklyn, New York providing fast and effective knee injury treatment that results from occupational hazards, sports injuries, slips and falls, repetitive motion and motor accidents.
A detailed physical examination of the knee would be undertaken at the center. An x-ray or MRI scan may be needed if the patient complains of intense pain and extreme difficulty in bending the knee. This would not only reveal the condition of the bones, cartilage, muscles, ligaments and tendons but also the extent of injury.
The conventional form of treatment for knee injury is quite effective in most cases. Apart from elevating the joint and taking sufficient rest, the patient would require compression bandages and ice packs. Our physician would also provide prescription-strength pain medication to ease discomfort and provide relief.
We also offer joint injection drug treatments that help restore natural joint fluid and reduce pain that occur due to the knee injury. FDA-approved Monovisc and Orthovisc joint injections restore the natural joint fluid (hyaluronan) that cushions, protects and lubricates the knee joint. Both these knee injections are viscosupplements that provide knee pain relief, and only differ in the way they are administered.
HealthQuest’s physical therapy rehabilitation would ensure that the knee regains its full range of motion. This would be achieved by special therapeutic exercises which would enhance strength and improve flexibility.
