Jan 24, 2020

Advice From Our Diplomat-Certified Doctors

Ready to watch some Sunday football? Gather your crew, assemble the snack selection, and get ready to hit the couch for a day of hard-hitting action. Watching professional athletes on the gridiron gives you a new respect for each person’s training and diet regimen. Aware that the chips and dip you’re currently shoving into your mouth are likely not on your favorite player’s game day diet, you settle into your spot and root for your team. Right before halftime, you see your favorite player hit the turf in agony, grabbing his knee. “I bet he injured his patellar tendon or is suffering from meniscus tears,” says one of your orthopedic surgeon friends, “and will likely be out the rest of the season after he gets surgery.” Puzzled, you ask your friend, “Is surgery the only option offered by knee pain Drs.?”

Your orthopedic surgeon friend replies that while surgery is sometimes the only way to repair meniscus tears and injured patellar tendons, that many professional athletes also seek pain management treatment.

“Why do you ask?” your friend inquires.

“Because I think it’s time for me to schedule an appointment with a Bergen County knee pain Dr. to treat my own chronic knee pain.” you reply.

If the idea of surgery is frightening, know that Pain Treatment Specialists, the best Bergen County knee pain Drs., utilize state-of-the-art pain management techniques in order to treat knee pain. Our board-certified pain doctors specialize in chronic knee pain, and offer treatments in our nearby Clifton location, just bordering Bergen County. Consulting with an orthopedic surgeon right away is not advised, since the pain doctors at Pain Treatment Specialists create customized treatment plans designed to reduce chronic knee pain and return you to your normal activities.

What Do Bergen County Knee Pain Drs. Do For Chronic Knee Pain?

During the game, your orthopedic surgeon friend was trying to diagnose the player’s injury on the field. However, without an actual examination, discussion with the player, MRI or X-ray results, the diagnosis was based on the orthopedic surgeon’s best approximation. At Pain Treatment Specialists, our Bergen County knee pain Drs. consult with each patient individually to discuss their pain concerns and do not rely on generalizations to diagnose patients. At their state-of-the-art facility, our Bergen County knee pain Drs. listen closely to patients’ knee pain concerns and then tailor one of the following treatments to meet the patient’s needs. Some of the cutting-edge knee pain treatments offered by the best Bergen County knee pain Drs. include:

  • Nerve Block: A genicular nerve block, also known as “G-block” is designed to block nerve transmissions that carry pain to the brain. If you’ve been considering looking for an orthopedic surgeon because your chronic knee pain is intense, then a G-block can provide tremendous pain relief. At your Bergen County knee pain Dr., this outpatient procedure provides an injection of anesthetic to the genicular nerves.
  • Physical Therapy: Your Bergen County knee pain Dr. works with a physical therapist to create a unique treatment plan designed to build knee strength and increase mobility. A physical therapist is trained to work with each patient’s pain levels and build a program that returns them back to full strength.
  • Injections: Your Bergen County knee pain Dr. also uses injections to battle chronic knee pain. Corticosteroid injections reduce pain and inflammation, and lubricant injections replace fluid that allows the knee to move easily. After you schedule an appointment, your Bergen County knee pain Dr. decides which type of injection works best to alleviate your chronic knee pain.

Don’t settle for a “phoned-in” consultation about your knee pain. Contact a Bergen County knee pain Dr. for an in-person consultation about your pain management options.

What is Causing My Chronic Knee Pain?

Even though your Sunday game day revelation might be a shock to your orthopedic surgeon friend, you know the type of pain you’ve been experiencing every day for quite some time. Whether it was sustained during an accident or fall, or is due to normal wear and tear, chronic knee pain affects your daily activities. A Bergen County knee pain Dr. will be able to identify your type of knee pain, which can fall into one of the following categories:

  1. Acute Pain: If you’ve had a fall, car accident, or just twisted your knee in the wrong direction, then you have an acute injury. More than likely, you have not had an issue with your knee until the acute injury occurred, and can pinpoint your chronic pain to the date of the incident.
  2. Medical Conditions: Suffering from gout or rheumatoid arthritis? Your general physician diagnoses these conditions, which can also result in chronic knee pain. Make sure you discuss these medical conditions with your Bergen County knee pain Dr. to ensure a proper pain management treatment.
  3. Chronic Conditions: Unable to pinpoint the cause of your knee pain, or can’t understand why it’s lasting more than just a few days? This is likely a chronic condition that occured after overusing your knee. Repetitive motions such as riding your bike, running, jumping, martial arts, or swimming can aggravate your knee pain.

Just because your orthopedic surgeon friend is watching the game on your couch doesn’t mean that you have to rely solely on his medical advice. If you’re suffering from chronic knee pain, contact a Bergen County knee pain Dr. such as Pain Treatment Specialists to see how our interventional pain doctors can get you back in gridiron…or armchair quarterback… shape quickly!
