Bergen County, New Jersey (June 12, 2014) – A lot of people are now experiencing knee pain, limited range of motion, stiffness, swelling, and joint tenderness whenever they walk or climb the stairs. These things could be symptoms of chondromalacia and osteoarthritis, which result in a searing painful sensation for sufferers. Bergen County knee pain patients rely on MedWell’s comprehensive and effective treatment plans for their much needed relief.
Treating knee pain is always complicated due to the natural complexity of the joints, with some cases even requiring surgery and invasive procedures. The practice of MedWell Spine, Osteoarthritis, and Neuropathy Center, however, has made it possible to provide a knee pain treatment in Bergen County that does not require surgery or invasive procedures. MedWell employs a series of Hyalgan injections which results in almost immediate pain relief for patients.
Hyalgan injection is indicated for the treatment of pain in osteoarthritis of the knee in patients who have failed to respond adequately to conservative nonpharmacologic therapy and to simple analgesics. This is a proven effective form of knee pain treatment as Hyalgan contains sodium hyaluronate, a natural liquid that increases the viscosity of the synovial fluid, which in turn helps lubricate, cushion, and reduce pain in the joint. A qualified doctor administers weekly injections to patients for five consecutive weeks and pairs it with a detailed physical therapy plan to ensure gradual recovery of normal mobility skills.
MedWell also prescribes another alternative form of treating knee pains called unloader knee braces. An unloader knee brace is a custom-designed medical device that provides stability, support, and pain relief for patients. It puts three points of pressure on the thigh bone and forces the knee to bend away from the parts that are causing the unbearably painful sensation.
