Knee Pain Treatment at Tidewater Orthopaedics for Patients from Hampton, Williamsburg, Newport News, VA, and throughout the Peninsula
Knee pain treatment is usually non-operative when the discomfort stems from a strain or contusion, which are the most common types of knee injuries. On the other hand, more serious conditions, such as meniscal and ligament tears, may require prompt surgical intervention to increase the likelihood of a patient’s full recovery. Individuals from Hampton, Newport News, and Williamsburg, Virginia, have access to a full range of knee pain treatment options from the team of fellowship-trained surgeons and in-house physical therapists at Tidewater Orthopaedics.
Whether or not surgery is necessary for knee pain treatment, one of the best ways to optimize a patient’s outcome is to develop a customized physical therapy program to help the patient regain strength and mobility. The physical therapy department at our Hampton Roads clinic provides advanced rehabilitation techniques designed exclusively for the treatment of complex orthopaedic conditions. Of course, different injuries, including those treated surgically, have different recovery periods and require different approaches to treatment. To ensure that each patient’s plan adequately addresses his or her needs, a highly trained and specialized physical therapist will work closely with the treating physician at Tidewater Orthopaedics to assess the injury and determine if the patient could benefit from any of a variety of conservative treatments, such as:
- An individualized exercise program
- Manual therapy
- Dry needling
- A hinged knee brace
- Corticosteroid injections
At Tidewater Orthopaedics, we also offer a WorkAbility program managed by an individual who has many years of experience in workers’ compensation cases. This talented individual is an expert in bridging the gaps between providing medical care, returning a patient to active employment, and adhering to all legal requirements.
