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 Elberon, 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 Elberon, 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 Elberon, 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.

Fidelco, Elberon to build 140K sq. ft. freezer warehouse for FreezPak on Elizabeth/Newark border

-

November 9, 2020

In what only can be considered a big win for both Elizabeth and Newark — as well as the still-booming industrial sector in the state — Fidelco Realty Group, Elberon Development Group and FreezPak Logistics announced Monday morning that they are breaking ground on a 140,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art freezer warehouse facility on the Elizabeth/Newark border.

The project, which will be co-developed by Fidelco and Elberon, will be located at the corner of Newark Avenue and Virginia Street, at 1029 Newark Ave. — on a parcel that has been vacant since dye and pigment manufacturer Magruder Color moved out in 2006.

The new structure, which will deliver 10.5 million cubic feet of space, 18 docks and 30,000 pallet positions, is expected to be completed in the fall of 2021, the developers said. It will create approximately 50 jobs for the area when it opens.

Marc Berson, the owner and chair of Fidelco, said the project has huge potential.

“We’re very excited about it,” he told ROI-NJ. “Refrigerated warehouses are a huge business in the industrial world today.”

The facility will provide a broad range of services, including storage and retrieval, repacking, transportation and overseas container plug-in, as well as on-site USDA, FDA and food safety and inspection service inspections.

More than that, the warehouse facility may spur more growth in the area. That’s the hope of Dave Gibbons, the president of Elberon, which has helped build in Elizabeth for generations.

“We believe this project will help revitalize an area that has been stagnant for many years, and perhaps serve as a catalyst for further redevelopment,” he said. “This development is another that validates the growing presence and success of cold storage facilities.”

Elizabeth Mayor Chris Bollwage agreed with Gibbons. He hopes the building will spur more freezer warehouses in the area.

“We’ve been working with Elberon on the idea that we need to develop more of a freezer-type warehouse business here in our city because of the access to the port,” Bollwage told ROI-NJ. “More and more goods were coming in, and necessity of some type of freezer warehouses was going to be important to the future growth to the warehouse industry.

“Elberon has followed through on that, not only with this lease, but two other previous leases with different firms.”

Bollwage said Elizabeth’s geography makes it an ideal location for what is a niche business. Location to the port and its access to ships, not to mention its proximity to planes, trains and, yes, automobiles and trucks makes the Newark Elizabeth area perfect for more freezer facilities.

That want, however, is easier expressed than accomplished.

Berson, who has owned the property for four years, nearly gave up on the idea of having a refrigerated warehouse after two previous attempts failed to get to the finish line. He said he finally found an ideal partner in Carteret-based FreezPak, which is opening its fifth location in the state.

And Berson said he’s happy to be partnering with Elberon, a firm he has a relationship with for decades – and one with a history of building refrigerated warehouses, a complicated and costly undertaking.

“They’re more precise (because) they’re insulated,” he said. “And insulating doesn’t just mean walls and ceiling, but your floors. Everything is just different. You can’t overlook any of it or it just won’t look right.”

Berson said this project will be no exception.

“The cubic dimensions are very relevant,” he said. “This is a warehouse building that will be 75 feet high and very efficient. So, the inches matter. As we understand, we’ll be able to support some 30,000 pallet positions through this warehouse.

“Getting heavy pallets up 75 feet and bringing them down is quite a feat. There is a lot of automation and engineering that goes into this, and there is no room for error.”

FreezPak co-CEO David Saoud said the company is eager to get going.

“FreezPak Logistics looks forward to continuing our work with the great people in Elizabeth and Newark,” he said. “We will create 50 new jobs to service our clients throughout the area and provide customized distribution with 30,000 new pallet positions, expanding our import capabilities in the Northeast.”

Co-CEO Michael Saoud hinted at growth, too.

“The Elizabeth facility will be our fifth location in New Jersey, and we are already designing a sixth site for 2022 to further meet the growing needs of the food industry in the state.”

LONG BRANCH — A New Jersey beach that's considered to be one of the most vulnerable to storms is about to get the makeover it needs.

Beach replenishment in the Elberon section of Long Branch is expected to begin in the new year and wrap up by March 1, officials announced on Tuesday.

During a press conference along the beach, Joseph Seebode with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said dredges are expected to arrive in the area and begin pumping sand on or about Jan. 10. A third dredge may be used to ensure that the project is completed by spring.

"Let's all hope for calm seas, no nor'easters, and good weather, so project delivery will be smooth," Seebode said.

The Army Corps plans to drop 1.2 million cubic yards of sand, starting at Lincoln Avenue and working north to Takanassee Lake at North Lake Drive.

"It's always cheaper to do beach replenishment than it is to wait for the storm to occur," said U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone, D-N.J. 6th District.

Pallone noted that while projects like these may temporarily make beaches wider, tourism is "not even a consideration" during the beach fill process.

New Jersey Coastal Alliance was on hand for the Tuesday event to declare its opposition to this and other beach replenishment projects.

"We have seen these Army Corps projects result in destruction of marine life, the appearance of sand cliffs as much as 15 feet high, and even life-threatening sinkholes," Kushner, of the Alliance, told New Jersey 101.5 in an emailed statement. "Little is actually protected but the beachfront mansions of the ultra-rich at the expense of hardworking taxpayers."

The federal government is picking up 65% of the project's tab, Pallone said. That funding comes from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law signed last year. The other 35% is split between New Jersey, Monmouth County, and Long Branch.

Depending on how long it takes for the Elberon project to be completed, the Army Corps may decide to continue beach replenishment into Monmouth Beach or the West End section of Long Branch.

"Projects like this help us to better prepare and protect our communities," said Shawn LaTourette, commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.

LaTourette said New Jersey is ground zero for some of the worst impacts of climate change.

State officials and the Army Corps conduct surveys on an annual basis to determine which beaches are most at risk.

Long standing Elizabeth, corporate community leader, Elberon Development Group, contributed a $50,000 donation to Junior Achievement of New Jersey (JANJ) to underwrite students' participation in their JA Finance Park program. The Elberon Development Group's executive team spent the afternoon with more than 60 students from Halsey Academy, Elizabeth and Hillcrest Academy, Westfield, students at the program's simulation.

After the formal ribbon cutting ceremony of the newly installed education kiosk now known as the Elberon Development Group Education Kiosk, the executives spent time speaking with students about the value of an education, working hard and mentorship as they all relate to their future success.

Prior to coming to the 4.5 hour simulation field trip the students spent more than 12 hours over several weeks of classroom sessions with their educators. At the simulation, using JA Finance Park tablets, the students' role played as adults based on their given personas, managing personal budgets; making life decisions; and paying the bills.

Elberon Development Group is deeply rooted in the Elizabeth community for more than 50 years so it was exciting for them to see students form their community in action at "The Park." The collaboration with JANJ through JA Finance Park is an exciting expansion that opens a new chapter in this partnership. It demonstrates both organizations' commitment to college and career readiness, ensuring New Jersey students are prepared to succeed in today's global economy.

Asbury Park Press

LONG BRANCH - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will begin a $34 million beach replenishment project in the city's Elberon section right after the New Year.

The federal government is funding $24.4 million of the total costs from money allocated in the comprehensive Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, according to U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone Jr., D-N.J., who announced the work Tuesday during a news conference at the beach.

Pallone was joined by Shawn M. LaTourette, New Jersey's Department of Environmental Protection commissioner, and Col. Matthew Luzzatto, commander, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District. All three spoke of the critical need to protect the coast's infrastructure from storms.

The remaining $13.1 million will come from the state.

The project's scope calls for the Corps to place 1.2 million cubic yards of sand — enough to fill roughly 242 million milk gallons — starting at the southern end of Elberon at Lincoln Avenue and working north to Takanassee Lake at North Lake Drive. The Elberon project is expected to be completed no later than March 1.

Is sand the best defense?$500M later, Jersey Shore's fate in powerful storms is uncertain

Depending on the time it takes to complete the Elberon project, the Corps may also exercise an option to place 300,000 cubic yards of sand from Takanassee Lake north to Cedar Avenue in the West End section of the city. There is also an additional option in Monmouth Beach that includes 1 million cubic yards from Central Road south to Valentine Street.

"Beach replenishment is critical to our beaches and communities along the Jersey Shore,” Pallone said. “Coastal restoration projects like beach replenishment ensure that our beaches and infrastructure remain resilient after bad weather events."
