Knee Treatments

Your orthopedic surgeon may decide to treat your knee discomfort non-operatively. There are many options including medications, such as anti-inflammatory medications like Aleve (Naproxen Sodium) or Advil (Ibuprofen)

You may also utilize icing techniques and exercises. There is the option of trying the exercises on your own. Here is a list of several exercises that can be explained in further detail. Please speak with your provider prior to beginning any of these exercises.  Note: These exercises are not designed to substitute for a post operative therapy protocol.  If you are having surgery, make sure you clarify your surgery protocol with your surgeon.
