Orthopedic Specialist Treating Athletes of All Levels in Monroe Township, NJ
An orthopedic sports medicine specialist has a unique skillset that allows him or her to fully understand the needs of an injured athlete who is anxious to get back into the game. At New Jersey Sports Medicine in Monroe Township, our board-certified surgeons, orthopedic physicians, and physical therapists provide a full range of conservative and surgical treatment options for sports-related injuries. Because many of us are athletes ourselves, we are able to take into account the distinctive physical demands of a particular sport when recommending a treatment plan.
Each orthopedic specialist at New Jersey Sports Medicine upholds our conservative treatment philosophy. By emphasizing nonsurgical therapy whenever possible, we help each patient find the least invasive option that will be effective. This means we generally view surgery as a last resort for severe or persistent injuries that do not respond to nonsurgical treatment.
As part of an individualized treatment plan, an orthopedic specialist at New Jersey Sports Medicine in Monroe Township, NJ, may recommend:
- Physical therapy
- Kinesio taping
- Graston Technique® (soft tissue mobilization)
- FST (fascia stretch training)
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
- Steroid injections
- Massage therapy
Furthermore, patients who ultimately decide to have surgery can feel confident entrusting their care to our surgical team. Each member is an experienced orthopedic specialist who continually contributes to the development of increasingly noninvasive surgical solutions for sports injury treatment. In addition to providing fracture and trauma care, our surgeons perform arthroscopic surgery using tiny incisions, fiber-optic cameras, and specialized surgical instruments to view and access damaged knee, hip, and shoulder joints.
