Treatments & Procedures
The physicians and board-certified specialists at West Suburban Medical Center are dedicated to providing our patients with individualized treatment plans to get them on the road to recovery.
We take great pride in making sure our patients receive high-quality orthopedic treatments and procedures, including the most advanced minimally invasive option for knee replacement surgery. Below are common treatments for knee conditions that we may treat at West Suburban Medical Center:
Physicians use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, along with strengthening programs, to treat mild to moderate pain associated with inflammation in the knee.
Medication, such as corticosteroid injections, are an important part of a treatment protocol for knee injuries. A caregiver will inject a dose of corticosteroid directly into the joint to decrease inflammation.
Sometimes the best treatment for knee injury may be immobilization. Physicians may recommend the use of a cane or walker as part of an ongoing treatment for knee injury.
Knee Braces and Sleeves
A brace is used to provide external stability to the knee joint and encourage healing. A specialist will recommend knee braces and sleeves to help strengthen the knee muscle while reducing pain and inflammation.
Physical therapy is an integral component of a physician’s approach of treating knee pain. A physician will recommend physical therapy after surgery or as an ongoing treatment regimen to care your knee injury.
