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.

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 Ocean, 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 Ocean, 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 Ocean, 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.

EATONTOWN, NJ — The Panda Express in Eatontown just opened Monday, plus a Dave's Hot Chicken location is coming to Rt. 66 in Ocean Township.

Dave's Hot Chicken will be located at 2311 Rt. 66, in the Seaview Square Shopping Center. Grand opening is Dec. 2.

Panda Express is located at 151 Rt. 35 in Eatontown. They're already open, but at 10 a.m. next Tuesday, November 28 they will have a ribbon cutting and grand opening giveaway for the first 88 guests, who will receive a special mystery gift.

Panda Express is now selling their first-ever dessert item, the Apple Pie Roll of juicy apples, fall spices and cinnamon sugar wrapped in a crispy wonton wrapper.

For those who are not familiar, Dave's Hot Chicken is a fried chicken franchise, where chicken can be topped with a range of signature sauces, ranging from No Spice to “The Reaper.”

Interested in local real estate?Subscribe to Patch's new newsletter to be the first to know about open houses, new listings and more.

They say on their website: "Dave’s Hot Chicken was created by best friends Dave Kopushyan, Arman Oganesyan and Tommy and Gary Rubenyan. Dave, a chef trained in Thomas Keller’s (French Laundry) organization set out to create the perfect Hot Chicken by searching, tasting and frying. The four friends scrounged up $900 to put a tiny stand in an East Hollywood parking lot. The menu was simple, and the chicken was the star. Sourced and prepared to be the juiciest and most tender chicken imaginable, each piece is topped with Dave’s signature mix of spices ranging from No Spice to “The Reaper.”

Arman created Instagram buzz and the lines began to grow. Two nights later, Eater/LA showed up to see what the fuss was about. The next morning's headline read "East Hollywood's Late Night Chicken Stand Might Blow Your Mind." Almost instantly, the lines stretched around the block. A year later, the boys had the money to open a shop in a hip strip-mall with décor by local street artists, where the crowds continued to grow with wait-times of an hour and more. From there, the incredibly craveable “Hot and Spicy” varieties have created a cult following with rave reviews across the U.S., Canada, UAE & Qatar."

LACEY — A single-engine plane carrying only the pilot crashed in the woods near the Robert J. Miller Air Park late Saturday, sparking a wildfire that has spread to 600 acres, an official and the New Jersey Forest Fire Service said.

The condition of the pilot has not been determined.

What we know about the plane, pilot

A Cirrus SR20 crashed at 10:18 p.m. Saturday about a half mile southwest of the airport, also known as the Ocean County Airport, part of which lies in Berkeley, after taking off from the Monmouth Executive Airport in Wall, according to the National Transportation Safety Board, which is investigating the crash.

An official told the Asbury Park Press that local authorities first caught wind of the crash when they investigated a smoke condition south of the airport between the airport and Lacey Road about 11:40 p.m. Saturday.

It took about two hours for authorities at the scene to discover the fiery crash, the official said.

The fire has prevented crews from reaching the pilot, the official said.

An investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board was expected to visit the crash site Sunday afternoon.

What's the scale of the fire?

The New Jersey Forest Fire Service posted an update on Facebook around 7:30 p.m. Sunday saying the fire had grown to 600 acres was 50% contained. Twenty-five structures were threatened by it.

Heavy smoke from the fire prompted the closing of Dover Road from Lacey Road to Pinewald Keswick Road and Mule Road from Lacey Road to Pinewald Keswick Road, according to the Forest Fire Service. There have been no evacuations, according to the post.

Smoke from the fire could be smelled as far away as Stafford and Lakewood, according to the Ocean County Sheriff's Department.

Lacey Mayor Timothy McDonald said authorities informed him that the fire was likely to burn for a few days before being fully extinguished. The road closures have not made traffic worse elsewhere in the township, he said.

About the Ocean County Airport

Ocean County Airport was closed Sunday, according to Sheriff's Department. The 822-acre airport is a county-owned airport for public use. It has two runways and a heliport and serves private and corporate planes as well as emergency services aircraft, according to the airport website.

The airport has nighttime takeoffs and landings and is equipped with lights, said county spokeswoman Donna Flynn.

Huge waves along the Jersey Shore this week gave some surfers a run for their money, with some offshore waves heights reaching 20 feet before breaking.

The large waves attracted onlookers, photographers and surfers who came to see the powerful breakers up close.

One surfer, Brendan Tighe, told News12 he was out surfing Monday, when he was taken down by a 20-foot wave. "The wave stood up, I opened my eyes and it had gotten too vertical…so I had no choice but to leap," he said.

A photographer, Dave Nilsen, told News12 he was there to see it all. "I can undoubtedly say that was the biggest wipeout - the tallest, heaviest wave - that I have ever seen here," he said.

But the National Weather Service said the huge waves were not unique.

"They were certainly unusual but not anything unprecedented," said Alex Staarmann, meteorologist for the National Weather Service at Mt. Holly.

The National Weather Service did not record the heights of breaking waves Monday, but Staarmann said the buoys off-shore measured wave heights of about 20 or 21 feet off the coast of the northern Jersey Shore.

Embedded content: https://www.instagram.com/p/CmXt_DGJP1Z/

Staarmann said there are often large, breaking waves during and immediately following a storm, like the one felt across the state from Sunday into Monday. There was a very long period easterly swell due to the onshore wind.

Then, as the storm lifted north, the winds quickly shifted offshore, he said. The ocean current was pushing water and waves toward the beach, but then came the strong offshore wind, making the breaking waves even more magnified.

Staarmann the unusual aspect was that once the storm passed north of the area, it was mostly clear and sunny.

"A lot of times when the bigger waves are occurring there's still very strong winds and heavy rain or heavy snow, so there's not really anyone out there taking pictures...or out surfing," he said

Staarmann said if there's any time of year for waves like this, it's the winter starting around December, but especially January through March.

But that's not always the case.

"If we have a tropical cyclone...that passes close to our coast...there can also be waves of that magnitude," he said.

When it comes to craft beer, New Jersey has some tremendous breweries that you need to check out.

I recently did the Cape May County brewery scene, visiting six different breweries from Ludlham, Slack Tide, Bucket Brigade, COHO, Behr, and Cape May Brewing on a recent Saturday.

I recently spent the day in Hammonton and checked out Three 3's, Vinyl, and Chimney. Over in Somers Point, I was at SoPo and there are plenty of other great spots in Atlantic County to check out.

But what is the highest-rated beer in New Jersey? While its not in Atlantic or Cape May County, it is not to far for you to take a drive and try!

According to the website Beer Advocate, the highest-rated in the New Jersey comes from Kane Brewing Company, called Sunday Brunch, which is a Imperial Milk Porter with Rock Coffee, maple syrup, and cinnamon.

Sunday Brunch is brewed with maple syrup, cinnamon, Rook Coffee, and lactose. It is brewed with a blend of pilsner malt and English crystal and roasted malts. Sunday Brunch pours a black color with light coffee foam. Aromatics are of freshly roasted coffee and maple-drenched french toast. Sunday Brunch drinks are smooth with a rounded body and intertwined notes of coffee, maple, and cinnamon.

Over at one of my favorite beer app, Untapped, the beer is rated a 4.42 out of five stars by almost 12,000 reviewers.

It has a 9.2% ABV and is one of many solid beers at Kane Brewing which is located at 1750 Bloomsbury Ave in Ocean up in Monmouth county. It is close enough for our listeners to take a drive and check it out, about 65.2 miles away from out Northfield studios.

Kane brewing has some other pretty highly rated beers, including Head High, Overhead, Sneakbox, which just won a bronze medal at the great American Beer Festival, Party Wave, Morning Bell, SBX and more that are highly rated beers on the Untapped App.

Over in Delaware, the high-rated beer was from Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, called Utopias Barrel-Aged World Wide Stout, which is a American Imperial Stout with a 17.3 ABV.
