Are you experiencing knee pain symptoms such as popping, clicking, bone-on-bone grinding, achiness, or sharp stabs? You're not alone in this journey. Knee pain affects nearly 25% of adults in the United States, causing discomfort, swelling, and chronic pain that can hinder everyday activities like childcare, walking, and exercise. Shockingly, recent statistics from The American Academy of Family Physicians indicate a 65% increase in diagnosed knee pain cases.

In a world where invasive surgeries and prescription painkillers are often the default solutions, it's crucial to explore the effective non-invasive options that are available. These alternative treatments provide relief without the associated risks of surgery.

Let's take a closer look at some of the knee pain treatments available at NJ Sports Spine and Wellness, which all serve as great alternatives to knee replacement surgery.

Physical Therapy:

Optimizing Musculoskeletal Health with Conservative Care

The field of Physical Therapy (PT) aims to rehabilitate individuals who have experienced injury, illness, or disability by restoring their mobility and function. Physical therapists cater to patients of various ages and capabilities, ranging from young athletes to senior citizens, in order to help them surpass physical limitations and improve their standard of living with advanced knee pain treatment in Bradley Beach, NJ.

At NJ Sports Spine and Wellness, our physical therapy program was founded on a patient-centric philosophy, where physical therapists work closely with patients to get a deep understanding of their goals, preferences, and capabilities. In doing so, they can create a tailor-made treatment strategy to address their unique knee pain with the goal of avoiding a knee replacement. Treatment may involve exercises that are therapeutic in nature and can include:

  • Joint mobilizations
  • Soft tissue mobilization using cupping
  • Graston technique
  • Soft tissue massage
  • Stretching of associated muscle groups

Joint Mobilization for Knee Pain

This unique knee pain solution involves physical therapists using skilled manual therapy techniques to help improve your joint range of motion while simultaneously reducing your knee pain.

During joint mobilization, a physical therapist applies targeted pressures or forces to a joint in specific directions to improve its mobility. The intensity of the force applied can vary, and it is adjusted based on the patient's comfort level. Joint mobilization is generally pain-free.

STM

Soft Tissue Mobilization (STM)

Soft Tissue Mobilization is a manual therapy technique that involves stretching and applying deep pressure to rigid muscle tissue. This helps to relax muscle tension and move fluids that are trapped in the tissues that cause pain and inflammation. This effective form of physical therapy is often used as an advanced knee pain treatment in Bradley Beach, NJ for treating knee strains, knee sprains, knee pain, and more.

Graston

The Graston Technique

The Graston Technique involves the use of handheld instruments to identify and break up scar tissue through specialized massage. During a Graston Technique session, physical therapists use convex and concave tools for cross-friction massage, which involves rubbing or brushing against the grain of the scar tissue. This process re-introduces small amounts of trauma to the affected area. In some cases, this process temporarily causes inflammation, which can actually boost the amount and rate of blood flow in the knee. This process helps initiate and promote the healing process so you can get back to a normal life.

Massage

Soft Tissue Massage

Soft tissue massage is a less intense form of massage than it's deep-tissue relative. Instead of focusing on slow and firm strokes to reach the deep layers of muscles and tissues, this massage technique uses a variety of pressures, depths, and durations. Soft tissue massage is helpful in alleviating different types of knee aches, pains, and injuries. Soft tissue massages can also help reduce stress, improve circulation, and promote relaxation.

Advanced Mechanics and Technology:

The Future of Knee Pain Therapy

While knee pain is a common symptom that affects millions of Americans every year, no two cases of knee pain are ever exactly alike. Some types of knee injuries require non-traditional solutions. At New Jersey Sports Spine and Wellness, we offer a range of treatments that leverage mechanics and technology to help patients recover from injuries while treating inflammation and pain as well as resolve the root cause of the pain.

AlterAlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill

The AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill is equipped with NASA Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology, which is a precise air calibration system that uses the user's actual body weight to enhance rehabilitation and training. By utilizing a pressurized air chamber, the AlterG allows patients and athletes to move without any pain or restrictions.

This advanced knee pain treatment in Bradley Beach, NJ uniformly reduces gravitational load and body weight up to 80% in precise 1% increments. The results can be incredible, with patients reporting benefits such as:

  • Restoring and building of knee strength
  • Restored range of motion in the knee
  • Better balance
  • Improved knee function
  • More

What Makes the AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill So Effective?

The AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill can monitor various metrics such as speed, gait pattern, stride length, and weight distribution. With real-time feedback and video monitoring, your rehabilitation team can promptly and accurately identify issues and pain points or monitor your progress throughout your knee pain rehabilitation journey.

One of the key benefits of this cutting-edge equipment is that it replicates natural walking and movement patterns without the artificial feel that hydrotherapy or harnesses create. This makes it an excellent choice for faster recovery after knee injuries or surgeries, as it allows for early mobilization while also preserving strength. Furthermore, it is ideal for sports recovery as athletes can use it for physical conditioning maintenance.

Low-Level Laser Therapy

Our advanced treatment modalities for knee pain include laser therapy, which harnesses the revolutionary power of light through photobiomodulation (PBM). LiteCureâ„¢ low-level laser therapy is available for acute and chronic types of knee pain and can be hugely beneficial when coupled with physical therapy, occupational therapy, chiropractic care, and sports recovery care.

Understanding Photobiomodulation (PBM)

PBM is a medical treatment that harnesses the power of light to stimulate the body's natural healing abilities. The photons from the light penetrate deep into the tissue and interact with mitochondria, which results in a boost in energy production. This interaction sets off a biological chain reaction that increases cellular metabolism. Utilizing low-level light therapy has been shown to:

  • Alleviate knee pain
  • Speed up tissue healing
  • Promote overall health and wellness
  • Expedite knee pain injury recovery

Exclusive Access to

Pain Management Professionals

At NJ Sports Spine & Wellness, we know that every patient requires a personalized approach to chronic knee pain and condition management. Sometimes, our patients need access to pain management professionals, who can offer relief in conjunction with physical therapy and other solutions like low-level laser therapy.

Two of the most common services we offer for pain management includes acupuncture which can assist in avoiding knee replacement surgery.

Acupuncture is a common treatment for knee pain that involves inserting thin needles into specific points in your knee. This ancient Chinese medicine has gained popularity in Western culture due to its effectiveness in treating various conditions with minimal side effects.

Acupuncture works by stimulating the nervous system to release various biochemicals, including endorphins and other neurotransmitters. The release of these chemicals helps to reduce inflammation, decrease pain perception, and improve overall blood circulation.

Multiple studies have shown that acupuncture can be effective in treating knee pain caused by a variety of conditions, including osteoarthritis and injuries related to physical activity like running. Acupuncture can also help reduce inflammation, improve muscle function, and decrease pain perception, making it a viable treatment on its own or as an addition to traditional treatment methods like physical therapy.

When undergoing acupuncture, a professional acupuncturist will insert thin needles into specific acupoints on the skin. These needles are left in place for roughly 20 to 30 minutes and may be gently stimulated for an enhanced effect. Patients might experience a slight tingle or warmth at the needle insertion site, but overall, acupuncture is considered a painless procedure.

Acupuncture has been a trusted and effective treatment option for thousands of years. The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes acupuncture as a legitimate form of healthcare, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has even funded research studies to explore its efficacy for a range of medical conditions.

VegNews recently released a list of the 25 Best Vegan Mexican Food Spots Across the U.S. — and one Jersey Shore restaurant made the top 20.

Luna Verde in Bradley Beach, which opened in 2018, is known for esquites, a traditional street corn salad made with vegan mayo and cheese; tacos, burritos and chimichangas stuffed with plant-based asada and al pastor fillings; and vegan takes on tres leches cake and flan.

The 25 eateries on the VegNews list were chosen for going "above and beyond bean and rice burritos, supplying hungry eaters with food that is comforting, familiar and ultimately delicious."

The VegNews story also mentioned how Luna Verde gives back.

"The community-focused eatery also offers a community taco bowl, allowing customers to pay what they can afford, or pay more to feed future customers who may be under more financial strain."

Vegan treats:Vegan bakery opening in Atlantic Highlands with cookies that are out of this world

Vegetarian options:Colorado-based Korean BBQ chain to open four restaurants at the Jersey Shore

Luna Verde is owned by the Hildago family (Mahonrry Hidalgo, Eslin Morris and their teen son Marel), whose vegan diets sparked a passion for sharing plant-based Mexican food with their community.

“We are setting the vegan table for everyone to join around the well-known and loved traditional Mexican cuisine,” Morris said in a previous story. “We are passionate about coming together and sharing vegan food, love and kindness.”

This win comes just after the restaurant was recently dubbed one of "15 Latine-Owned Vegan Restaurants in America You Must Try" by VegOut. The platform called Luna Verde "your destination for scratch-made vegan multicultural food in New Jersey."

“We are humbled and honored to be named as one of [the best] by VegNews, just two days after we were named as one of the top 15 ... by VegOut," Morris said. "In times when scratch-made, traditional, slow-cooked cuisines are losing ground to highly processed … experimental “vegan” items from unhealthy and unethical chains, it’s encouraging to see how there’s still some attention to family-owned small businesses like ours."

The restaurant is temporarily on a flex schedule, and only doing pick-up and take-out to support Marel's budding guitar career. See Facebook and Instagram for the latest updates.

BRADLEY BEACH, NJ — A Bradley Beach woman has dedicated months of training to take part in a cross-country bicycle ride that raises money for cancer. Ashley Pinnola will be riding in the 10th Annual Coast 2 Coast 4 Cancer bike ride, a fundraising event sponsored by the pharmaceutical company Bristol Myers Squibb.

The Coast 2 Coast 4 Cancer bike ride will entail 126 Bristol Myers Squibb employees riding in segments from Cannon Beach, Oregon to Long Branch, New Jersey, totaling over 3,000 miles. Pinnola will be riding with her team for three days from Bend, Oregon to Boise, Idaho, around 80 miles per day.

This is Pinnola’s first time participating in Coast 2 Coast 4 Cancer, and while she says she likes to keep an athletic and healthy lifestyle, she has never done anything quite like this. She has been training for the September event since April of this year.

“I enjoy sports, I enjoy being athletic, but I’ve never trained for anything in this manner — It’s been pretty intense… I have trained up to 100 miles per week in different weather. It’s been a hot summer, I’ve been stuck in thunderstorms and pouring rain,” Pinnola said. “I actually did my first 70-mile ride just a couple of weeks ago. So seeing where I started, having never ridden a road bike, to where I am now, is kind of shocking… But it’s awesome, and I’m proud of myself.”

The ride raises money for the V Foundation for Cancer Research, a charitable organization that was founded by ESPN and legendary basketball coach Jim Valvano. In its 30 years, The V Foundation has “awarded over $310 million in cancer research grants nationwide and has grown to become one of the premier supporters of cutting-edge cancer research.”

Riders form teams that are responsible for fundraising for the V Foundation. Pinnola’s team, “Bend Never Break,” is currently in the lead for the most money raised with $80,051. Riders are also responsible for individual fundraising, and Pinnola has raised around $2,700 personally so far, just over half of her $5,000 goal. Overall, the event has raised a total of $554,483 for the V Foundation so far.

The teams, each made up of about 15 riders, also ride their segment together. Pinnola said she is looking forward to being able to ride the 225 mile segment with her teammates.

“I’m excited for the team aspect. We’ve had a couple of practice rides together, and it’s so much easier when riding with the group rather than going solo,” Pinnola said. “We’ll be riding for three days together. It’ll be great to have them to kind of lean on, and to have that support... So I’m excited to bond with my team.”

The ride’s cause especially hits home for Pinnola, since two of her late grandparents have battled cancer. Additionally, her uncle is currently fighting brain cancer. Pinnola said when she feels like stopping during training, she thinks of them and continues on.

“The whole cause is just larger than life. I feel like sometimes with cancer, the amount of people affected by it, it feels kind of hopeless and there’s really nothing you can do,” she said. “But I feel like this is a way I can contribute, and feel like I am making a difference, positively, in cancer patients' lives.”

“I will be riding foremost for my uncle, whose currently fighting brain cancer, and really just everyone affected by cancer. My late grandpa and grandma were also affected,” Pinnola continued. “When I’m feeling like I want to stop, and this has happened through training also, I just think about my uncle. I think about what cancer patients go through, and I can do this. If they can fight cancer I can get through this.”

Pinnola also said that this ride is especially important to Bristol Myers Squibb, not only because it is the ride’s 10th anniversary, but also because the company recently lost an employee to breast cancer. The ride will be in honor of the company’s late employee, and Pinnola will also be thinking about her during the journey.

Pinnola said she’s incredibly excited to see the sights from Oregon to Idaho, however, what is most important to her is “ making a positive impact on cancer research and cancer patients.”

To donate to the cause, you can visit Bristol Myers Squibb’s website here. Additionally, you can donate specifically to Pinnola’s individual fundraising campaign by clicking here. The 10th Annual Coast 2 Coast 4 Cancer will take place from September 7 to October 3, and Pinnola’s segment will be from September 10 to September 12.

When was the last time you went out to eat and had a truly exceptional meal?

I mean, one that you'll remember for years to come.

Sure, it's easy to go out and have a "great time" or say, "that was really good," but I'm talking about a night out that you'll think about for practically eternity.

So where exactly can you go for that level of culinary expertise?

The good news is you're in New Jersey and there are excellent restaurants - quite literally - across all 8,700+ square miles of this state.

Foodies vote with their forks

If you are a diehard foodie who is always looking for that next five-star dish, thousands of voters across the Garden State recently did a lot of the work for you by determining the best of the best restaurants here.

And to make things easier, they picked three -- one in North Jersey, one in Central Jersey (we're assuming Central Jersey actually exists this time), and one in South Jersey.

Not long ago, New Jersey Monthly asked folks to vote for their favorite restaurants and their selections did not disappoint.

Let's take dive in...

Central Jersey Winner: Nicholas Barrel & Roost, Red Bank

What NJMonthly said:

North Jersey Winner: Lorena’s, Maplewood

What NJMonthly said:

Satisfying burgers, pastas and risottos coexist with crisp-skinned duck breast and a trout amandine on a lively vegetable hash. Desserts like warm chocolate cake and panna cotta seem like usual suspects, but the execution is exemplary.

Lorena's has a rather large trophy case as they were ranked #2 in the state by The Star-Ledger in 2005 and the best North Jersey restaurant in 2021 and 2022.

What diners have said:

Location:

Lorena's is at 160 Maplewood Avenue in Maplewood, Essex County.

Bradley Beach, New Jersey Pursues Digital Transformation

Bradley Beach, New Jersey, Feb. 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A transition from paper to digital processes is underway in Bradley Beach, New Jersey where local officials have sought greater efficiency in municipal operations and constituent services. The city recently partnered with GovPilot, a Manasquan, New Jersey based provider of cloud-based government management software.

Officials from Bradley Beach are working with GovPilot to implement a number of digital capabilities and public facing forms that aim to make operations more efficient and services more convenient for constituents and visitors to the picturesque shorefront municipality whose population can swell to 30,000 during the summer months.

Bradley Beach is initially utilizing GovPilot to digitize forms and processes for Business Registration, Certificates of Continued Occupancy, Construction Permits, Dog Licenses, Fire Prevention, Open Public Records Requests, Work Orders, and non-emergency constituent concern reporting among other uses.

The municipality has deployed GovPilot’s Report-a-Concern feature which enables residents to report non-emergency concerns such as potholes or general code violations directly via a digital form on the township website, or through an app on their phone, called GovAlert. The app, available to residents on Android and iOS devices is easy to use, and routes citizen concerns directly to the relevant municipal department so that the issue can be resolved quickly.

Mayor Larry Fox said, “I encourage residents to download the GovAlert app on their phones and help us improve Bradley Beach by reporting issues that they come across so we can address them quickly. Digital government services are essential to cost effective public safety and services, and we aim to be responsive to our residents.”

“We have been thrilled to work with GovPilot thus far. The digital processes that we’ve been able to make available both to our residents and to our staff have made a huge difference in convenience and efficiency. It has completely transformed our construction department.”, said Pamela Valentine, a Construction Department Permit Tech.

Michael Bonner, the founder and CEO of GovPilot said, “We are excited to work with Bradley Beach on its early stages of digital transformation. Federal funding from the American Rescue Plan Act has spurred local governments to implement digital services and operations. In partnering with local governments across the country we have found that digital processes generate significant increases in efficiency and productivity that have a positive impact on local budgets, services, and constituent experience. We expect to see similar results in Bradley Beach.”

About GovPilot:

GovPilot - named a GovTech 100 company for six consecutive years - is the leader in digital transformation for local governments. GovPilot's cloud-based platform was built with the sole purpose of enabling local governments to operate at their full potential by standardizing, digitizing, and unifying more than 100 operational and constituent service processes on one system.
