Living Well Medical understands the importance of having healthy knees in such an active, fast-paced city and offers the latest advancements in pain relief to help keep New Yorkers going.

Among the most recent additions to the practice's treatment repertoire is the addition of the advanced ROCKTAPE doc.

Along with chiropractic, physical therapy, and pain management techniques, this can be helpful for athletes who are starting to develop knee pain, or want to use assistive taping techniques to take some demand off their joints.

One of the most prevalent conditions that the specialists at Living Well Medical treat is arthritis, with osteoarthritis being the most common type. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint condition that can affect the knees (as well as other joints) due to wear and tear, particularly in patients over the age of 40, with a higher incidence in overweight patients. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 27 million Americans suffer from osteoarthritis. Friction can cause the cartilage of the knees to gradually deteriorate, causing loss of normal function, difficulty walking, and pain. Although the condition may be hereditary, it is also common after suffering knee injuries such as ligament tears and fractures.

Living Well Medical continues its quest to offer the highest quality non-surgical knee pain treatment in NYC and osteoarthritis is one of the conditions that the doctors on staff routinely treat with successful results, helping patients heal, regain comfort and function, eliminate pain, and avoid risky surgical procedures. Living Well Medical’s team of doctors includes an orthopedist, a doctor of osteopathy, chiropractors, physical therapists, medical massage therapist, and more. Together, they offer individualized, comprehensive treatment protocols that include a personalized combination of any of the following non-surgical procedures:

Joint Fluid Therapy: Effective for the long-term relief of osteoarthritis knee pain, a natural non-narcotic fluid is directly injected into the affected joint to restore lost shock absorption properties and allow for proper movement. Painful friction is eliminated and normal activities are no longer impaired by pain or discomfort. Results are immediate and last for several months.

Physical Therapy: A customized exercise program is individually developed for each patient to address strength and mobility concerns that diminish proper knee function. Physical therapy aids in the pursuit of pain relief and long-term wellness.

Cold Laser Therapy: A painless low-level laser is aimed at the affected area and assists in tissue regeneration at the cellular level, decreasing inflammation, discomfort, and pain. There are no known side effects and healing increases with every session.

Soft Tissue Mobilization: Knee injuries may leave behind painful scar tissue and other soft tissue abnormalities that can be corrected by expert application of soft tissue mobilization techniques. Living Well Medical provides ART® (Active Release Techniques) and Graston Technique®, which are manual and instrument-assisted therapies, respectively.

Kinesio Taping: In addition to expediting the body’s natural healing process, kinesio tape provides added stability and support to recovering knees in order to avoid further injury.

Custom Orthotics: Balance-restoring insoles are custom-designed and manufactured to order for each patient, and assist in achieving increased comfort when walking or standing.
