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 Wachovia, 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 Wachovia, 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 Wachovia, 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.

Sixers Spat With Wells Fargo Could Prelude a Move to Camden

Sixers owner Josh Harris already owns one arena in New Jersey. Why not another one? Here's how it would happen.

Get a compelling long read and must-have lifestyle tips in your inbox every Sunday morning — great with coffee!

I don’t really know what to think of the Wells Fargo Center. For example, the original first sentence of this story was, “The Wells Fargo Center sucks.”

So I guess I’m leaning that way. I don’t hate it though. I’ve attended hundreds of events there. Mostly the Sixers — but also the Flyers, concerts, WWE wrestling, arena football, the Harlem Globetrotters, summer merchandise clearance sales, sneaker conventions, plus a summer interning at Comcast SportsNet’s website (where, one night at work, I watched a Britney Spears concert from the hockey press box).

There’s just nothing it does great. I’ve been attempting to come up with my favorite thing about it and the best one I can think of is, “The concourses are wider than they were at the Spectrum.” This narrowly beat out “the roast beef sandwich at the old brewpub, if they still serve them.” It doesn’t have a sense of place. It’s been named for four different banks. It’s kind of bland. It’s just at the top of a parking lot hill surrounded by fence and a highway.

The Sixers don’t like the Wells Fargo Center either, maybe for some of the same reasons I don’t. The main problem the Sixers have, though, is they don’t own the arena. Comcast Spectacor does. That means less income for the owners, which means the team is less valuable. The Sixers, then, don’t get any money from the Wells Fargo Center naming rights. As such, the Sixers have stopped referring to the Wells Fargo Center as the Wells Fargo Center.

CEO Scott O’Neil called it the arena that we play in on Twitter. “The particular bank referenced is currently not a sponsor of the Philadelphia 76ers,” a Sixers spokesperson told Biz Philly yesterday.

Maybe this is simply a ploy to get Wells Fargo to sign a favorable deal with the Sixers. Or maybe the Sixers brass just enjoy looking like babies to many fans. But I think it’s a reminder: It’s conceivable the Sixers could move to New Jersey. When Sixers owner Josh Harris bought the Devils (and their Newark arena, the Prudential Center) almost two years ago, some fans panicked. After all, Harris said the arena was more valuable than the Devils in his purchase. What if he moved the Sixers there?

At the time, though, Delaware County Daily Times columnist Jack McCaffery wrote of a plan that would maximize Harris’ value even more:

Harris knows he cannot threaten a Sixers move to Newark. The Nets and Knicks have rights to that market, the NBA would seltzer-bottle him if he tried to move a team into it, and Philadelphia is too deep a basketball city to leave it free of a basketball team. There will be no threat of the Sixers moving north. None. East, though, is always in play.

If New Jersey executes the play correctly, it could have two big-league arenas, one on either pole of the state, one for hockey, one for hoops, both for circuses and concerts, all with the ability to lure promoters with a two-for-one special. It could take years. But, again, the play is just setting up.

In this scenario, the Sixers would move to Camden. That’s where they almost moved when this exact situation played out in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The Sixers played in a somewhat-aging arena they didn’t own. Owner Harold Katz had “the worst lease in sports.” The Sixers’ current straits aren’t so dire (the arena was built in 1996) but there are similarities.

Katz first tried a move to Jersey in the late 1980s. He negotiated to build a new arena in Camden with outgoing Gov. Jim Florio in 1993, but Gov.-elect Christine Whitman announced the next year she was rejecting the deal. Katz and his backers tried to salvage the deal with private funding, but he eventually agreed to stay in Philadelphia. What was originally called Spectrum II became the Corestates Center then the First Union Center, then the Wachovia Center and now Wells Fargo. It was largely financed privately (it did have $20 million in state funding and a small low-cost loan from the city). Ed Snider sold a majority share of Spectacor to Comcast in 1996, and the renamed Comcast Spectacor bought the Sixers.

What if the Sixers make noises about a new arena again? Not having a deal with the sponsor of your arena is not a problem you have if your own the arena. You can see how state funding for such a move would be pushed in Jersey: The state is already throwing money at companies to relocate to Camden — including the Sixers, who have a practice facility planned for the waterfront. A basketball arena would be the centerpiece of an entertainment district that already includes a minor-league baseball stadium, an aquarium and a summer concert venue. This would bring a real surefire attraction to the Camden waterfront for 41 nights a year. (Well, if the Sixers eventually get good.) These arguments might not make financial sense — public sports stadium funding is generally wasteful — but think of the civic pride! And so on.

If Pennsylvania and Philadelphia were to attempt to keep the team, they would be met with resistance on spending public money. That will happen in New Jersey, too, but maybe there will be less resistance there. Maybe the Sixers will end up actually moving to Camden after all. If so, the team would need to make one change: Dribblin’ Ben Franklin becomes a Dribblin’ Walt Whitman mascot. Or maybe Nipper could be looking into a basketball hoop? Eh, maybe not. We’d have some time to figure it out, at least.

Wells Fargo Is Closing Several More Branches, Starting Tomorrow

Retail closures are hardly an unusual sight these days. Whether it's major grocery stores or home decor chains, companies have been shuttering stores left and right over the past few years.

Retail closures are hardly an unusual sight these days. Whether it's major grocery stores or home decor chains, companies have been shuttering stores left and right over the past few years. But it's not only retailers paring down—major banks have also been reducing their brick-and-mortar locations. Wells Fargo has already closed hundreds of branches nationwide, and now it has more closures slated for the coming weeks. Read on to discover more about Wells Fargo's plans.

Over the last few years, Wells Fargo has been getting rid of hundreds of branches. In 2021, the company closed the most locations out of any other bank, with a total of 267 cut that year, CNBC reported. Wells Fargo shuttered many more branches last year, leaving the company with 4,598 retail locations at the end of 2022, down from 4,777 branches the year prior.

Customers have continued to see more closures from the bank this year, as well. Wells Fargo has already closed branches in Montana, North Carolina, California, Pennsylvania, Texas, New Jersey, Florida, Utah, Virginia, New Mexico, and Washington.

Now, even more branches are on the chopping block.

The company is closing a location in California tomorrow.

Wells Fargo's next closure is just around the corner. The company is closing a location in Redondo Beach, California, tomorrow, The U.S. Sun reported. The Wells Fargo on South Pacific Coast Highway in Redondo Beach will close for good on Sept. 13 at 11 a.m.

"Until then, customers can use the branch and bank with us as they always have," a Wells Fargo spokesperson told The U.S. Sun. "After that, customers can use our branch at 1701 S. Elena Ave. which is 1.5 miles away from the closing branch."

Another location in a different state will close tomorrow as well.

Customers in California aren't alone: Wells Fargo is also closing a branch in Richmond, Virginia, tomorrow, Richmond BizSense reported. A spokesperson for the company confirmed to the news outlet that its outpost at 3501 West Broad Street will shut down for good on Sept. 13 as well.

This branch's operations and deposits are being consolidated into the Willow Lawn Wells Fargo—which is located on the same road, about one mile west at 4901 West Broad Street.

RELATED: Walgreens and CVS Are Closing More Locations.

Wells Fargo is also shuttering several more branches soon.

Wells Fargo is planning to close two more branches in the Richmond area in the coming weeks, Richmond BizSense reported. The company is shutting down a branch located at 8215 West Broad Street on Oct. 18, and another at 122 East Grace Street on Nov. 1, according to the news outlet.

Outside of Virginia, Wells Fargo will be letting go of a branch in Pennsylvania. Its outpost at 1840 Airport Road in Allentown, Pennsylvania, will close for good on Nov. 1, WFMZ-TV reported.

And before that, Wells Fargo will be shutting down two branches in New Mexico. Spokesperson Ruben Pulido recently confirmed to the Albuquerque Business Journal that the bank is planning to close retail locations in Bosque Farms and Santa Teresa on Oct. 4.

Best Life reached out to Wells Fargo about these new planned closures, and we will update this story with their response.

Companies say customers are changing their banking habits.

Wells Fargo's decision to close so many branches nationwide has not been an easy one or something they "take lightly," the company told The U.S. Sun. But as consumer banking habits change, operations must change with it.

"Customers use our wide range of digital capabilities for many of their banking needs and, as a result, more transactions are happening outside the branch," a Wells Fargo spokesperson previously told Best Life. "As such, we continuously evaluate our branch network in light of changing customer needs, the increase in the use of digital banking, and market factors."

Nevertheless, "branches continue to play an important role in the way we serve our customers," the spokesperson added.

This is not just a problem for Wells Fargo. Many major banking companies, including Santander Bank, have been closing branches across the U.S. in light of changing trends.

"Like many industries, our customers' preferences have changed, with more customers choosing to bank with us online," Santander Bank said in a previous statement to Best Life. "Therefore, we are reimagining the customer and employee experience by simplifying our processes, refining our branch footprint, and increasing our investment in digital capabilities to align with the evolving needs of our customers."

Proposed ‘Mosaic’ Project Would Bring Residences and Arts Venue Opposite South Orange Station

A suburban Essex County property located just feet away from train and bus service to Midtown Manhattan could go from containing a vacant bank to becoming the site of a mixed-use development.The five-story “Mosaic at South Orange” project is slated to be constructed at 8 Second Street, a tract that takes up roughly half an acre and stretches along Sloan Street to Third Street.8 Second Street, LLC of Union submitted an application to South Orange’s municipal government in December 2021 for preliminary and final...

A suburban Essex County property located just feet away from train and bus service to Midtown Manhattan could go from containing a vacant bank to becoming the site of a mixed-use development.

The five-story “Mosaic at South Orange” project is slated to be constructed at 8 Second Street, a tract that takes up roughly half an acre and stretches along Sloan Street to Third Street.

8 Second Street, LLC of Union submitted an application to South Orange’s municipal government in December 2021 for preliminary and final site plan approval in order to build 42 residential units and a 1,975-square-foot “artist incubator space.”

A public notice described this project as an “inclusionary” development, but did not go into detail. The notice added that around 48 parking spaces are planned.

Site plans from Appel Design Group show that there would be eight one-bedroom units, 28 two-bedroom units, and six three-bedroom units, with six units being considered “COAH [Council on Affordable Housing] units.” A “window art display” would also be featured.

A certificate of ownership associates Michael and Jeffrey Markovitz with the LLC. Michael Markovitz is listed online as the founder of Mark Built Homes, a company that has been involved in other North Jersey developments such as Madison Place, The Heights at Tenafly, and Summit Place.

The parcel in South Orange was previously occupied by banks such as Wells Fargo, Wachovia, and First Union, each of which also operated a branch just two blocks away along South Orange Avenue.

Wells Fargo continues to have an ATM at the site where this development is envisioned and refers to the location on its website as its “South Orange Annex,” though sales records show that the bank sold the property to the LLC for $1.9 million in 2019.

The lot is situated diagonally across Sloan Street from entrances to both the inbound and outbound platforms of South Orange’s main train station. NJ TRANSIT’s 92 bus from Newark’s North Ward and 107 bus from Manhattan’s Port Authority Bus Terminal terminate directly across the street from the premises.

This would be far from the first new development to rise in this part of South Orange, with completed projects like Third & Valley, The Mignote on Second, and Sofi Gaslight Commons all located nearby. Other complexes such as Vose & Taylor and Village Commons are currently being built.

TAPinto SOMA reported last month that the plans for Mosaic had been reviewed by the South Orange Development Committee and that the residential units are expected to be rentals. The proposal is now scheduled to go before the South Orange Planning Board during a virtual hearing on Monday, February 7 at 7:30 p.m., according to the notice.

Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the South Orange Planning Board and other commissions are subject to change.

WWE Money in the Bank 2013: Fan's Experience from Inside Wells Fargo Center

WWE’s 2013 edition of the Money in the Bank pay-per-view from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia was one of the best events of the year thus far, and I was lucky enough to be in attendance during the show.

While my seats weren’t great—second level because I’m notoriously cheap—the view from the television side in the fifth row made for a great point-of-view for all of Sunday’s unpredictable action.

Experiencing any wrestling event live and interacting with the crowd is always a blast, but enjoying a PPV like Money in the Bank in a hotbed like Philadelphia made it even more special.

Which Stars Got the Biggest Cheers?

One of the reasons that the WWE felt comfortable holding a major PPV in Philadelphia is because of the crowds. The notoriously fickle crowds will not be told who or what to cheer for and will make their feelings well known.

✨ Watch more top videos, highlights, and B/R original content

There was definitely a strong contingent of casual wrestling fans in attendance, as face superstars like Sheamus and Randy Orton were cheered heavily. In the same vein, the entire crowd exploded for the arrival of Daniel Bryan and CM Punk.

Philadelphia also had to give the WWE a boost with the ability to determine which superstars should be cheered instead of booed.

Not only did the City of Brotherly Love ensure Ziggler is a face from now on with a boisterous reaction, but the ability to turn Ambrose, Fandango, Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow and the rest of the heels in the ladder match into household names also made the night special.

Add in the expected explosion of excitement over the returning Rob Van Dam to a Philadelphia crowd that watched him grow up in ECW, and there weren’t too many portions of the show that weren’t filled with noise.

The ultimate show of respect, though, came for Mark Henry in the WWE Championship match. While there were very vocal clusters of Cena fans throughout the arena, the building exploded in applause and cheers for The World’s Strongest Man.

While Henry may be a heel, Philadelphia appreciates hard work and gave him a face reception accordingly.

Which Stars Got the Biggest Jeers?

The biggest boos in Philadelphia were the same as they were in every smart wrestling town in the United States, as they were directed at WWE champion John Cena.

There are always groups of fans that love Cena relentlessly, but in cities like Philadelphia and New York, there is a contingent of passionate supporters just as strong that hates the champ relentlessly.

The Wells Fargo Center was its loudest overall when Cena hit the ring.

While the fans kept quiet for matches they didn’t like—Ryback vs. Chris Jericho, AJ Lee vs. Kaitlyn and The Miz vs. Curtis Axel received lackluster reactions—the biggest boos not related to Cena came for AJ after she cost Ziggler his chance at the title.

Ziggler had received one of the biggest pops of the night, and with the entire arena pulling for him to win the title, AJ’s interference caused the crowd to destroy the diva and find even more sympathy for the turning star.

What You Missed on PPV

While the PPV telecast typically catches most of the in-ring action, there are always changes and improvisations that slip past the cameras. The most notable on Sunday was the amount of injuries in the WWE Championship Money in the Bank ladder match.

Van Dam was busted up early in the match and was attended to by ringside doctors. The same was true for Christian and Punk. With WWE.com reporting about RVD’s and Punk’s injuries and PWInsider, via Wrestling Inc., reporting Christian’s injuries, it was great to see how fast the medical personnel reacted and handled the situations.

As hard as it might be to believe, the crowd was very respectful from my point-of-view and I saw no fans being asked to leave the arena for bad behavior. While Philadelphia has a bad reputation, we stayed classy on Sunday.

The experience of being at a live show is one of a kind. Not only do you see a great show, but you also get to enjoy it with fellow hardcore wrestling fans. While there are too many stories to tell, let’s just say most fans of the sport are very unique.

What Fans Should Never Do Again

After all the observations I made at the Wells Fargo Center, this last portion of the article will be one diehard fan’s plea to the rest of the wrestling community.

There are a few chants that must stop immediately.

Philadelphia was guilty of falling into this rut as well, and when new Raw general manager Brad Maddox was speaking about Vickie Guerrero, the crowd chanted "What?" at him. This must stop.

Unless Stone Cold comes through the curtain, there is no reason for the crowd to chant the word "what" ever again. It takes away from the story and can ruin a great segment.

Add in the Goldberg chants for Ryback and the Sexual Chocolate chants for Mark Henry, and there is no excuse for the crowd to attempt to put themselves over at a show. We should be there to have fun and be raucous, but in a light-hearted way.

Stop being so smarky and just have fun, WWE Universe!
