Board-Certified Physicians Practicing Orthopedic Medicine in Monroe Township, NJ
The practice of orthopedic medicine involves caring for all of the body’s moving parts, including the bones, joints, and muscles, and the connective tissues that help those structures function. If you’ve sustained an injury that is affecting any of these complex and interrelated components, the team of experienced orthopedic medicine specialists at New Jersey Sports Medicine in Monroe Township can help you find relief from your pain, build up your strength and stability, and get moving again.
Physical activity is essential for good health and overall well-being, and the goal of orthopedic medicine is to keep active bodies in motion. Because sports are all about movement, athletes are particularly susceptible to musculoskeletal injuries – especially those involving the joints. The experts at New Jersey Sports Medicine in Monroe Township, NJ, offer a full continuum of orthopedic care. We can accurately diagnose your issue, assess it with X-ray or MRI images, create a customized treatment plan, and prescribe appropriate physical therapy.
Some common joint injuries that we address at our orthopedic medicine practice include:
- Shoulder conditions, such as rotator cuff tears, labral tears, SLAP tears, bursitis, and tendonitis
- Elbow conditions, such as tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, and little leaguer’s elbow
- Hip conditions, such as labral tears, femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), and bursitis
- Knee conditions, such as meniscal tears, ligament (ACL/MCL) tears, and cartilage damage
- Foot and ankle conditions, such as tendonitis and ankle sprains
For most musculoskeletal conditions, there is usually more than one treatment option, and many conditions can be treated without surgery. Nonsurgical remedies such as physical therapy, medications, and other rehabilitative or alternative therapies are often effective enough to eliminate the need for a surgical procedure.
