Join Dr. Ginsberg at one of his free seminars where he discusses knee and joint pain and how The Center for Joint Therapy can help.
Our Treatment Program
The Center for Joint Therapy offers a comprehensive program for pain relief from OA of the knee. Joint Fluid Therapy is extremely effective, but it's not a "magic bullet." And it's not a permanent alternative to surgery. Joint Fluid Therapy works best with physical therapy and healthier lifestyle choices.
Here's what we recommend for most patients:
Joint Fluid Therapy: If you've tried more conservative options, and they haven't worked for you, and you're a good candidate, we will provide Joint Fluid Therapy. Patients receive injections once a week for 5 weeks.
Weight Loss: If you need to lose weight, we strongly recommend that this be part of your long-term treatment plan. For every pound of weight you lose, you take four pounds of pressure off your knee.
Physical Therapy: Research has shown that patients who undergo strength training have improved quadriceps strength, knee function and significantly less pain. Patients attend physical therapy for only 30 minutes twice a week for 4 weeks.
Proper Shoes: You wouldn't put bald tires on a new car. That's why we recommend you wear comfortable, supportive shoes to reduce stress on your knees. No flip flops or high heels.
Devices: We may recommend braces or orthotic insoles to reduce pressure and stress on your knees.
