Non-Surgical Treatment Options for Knee Pain and Injuries

Get the Care You Deserve

At Newport Orthopedic Institute, we realize that surgery isn't always the first choice for treating knee pain and other knee conditions. Our board-certified sports medicine doctors offer a full spectrum of comprehensive non-surgical orthopedic care for your knee conditions.

Some of the conservative treatment options we provide include:

  • Arthritis Management
  • Corticosteroids / Cortisone Shots
  • Durable Medical Equipment (DME)
  • Fluoroscopic-Guided Steroid Injection
  • Knee Braces
  • Knee Sleeves
  • Knee Wraps
  • Physical Therapy
  • PRP Injections ²
  • Soft Tissue Treatment
  • Ultrasound-Guided Injections
  • Viscosupplementation for Osteoarthritis ¹
  • X-Ray & MRI
¹ Check with your insurance provider prior to treatment as some insurance companies have deemed viscosupplementation as not being a "medically necessary" procedure.
² PRP Injections are not yet approved by the FDA and therefore is considered an experimental medical procedure and is not covered by insurance.

We take all treatment options into consideration when developing the right plan for you — from non-surgical to the most advanced and minimally invasive surgical treatments.

When conservative (non-surgical) treatments do not provide the relief from knee pain that is required to restore you back to your daily activities in a pain-free manner — it may be time to seriously consider undergoing knee surgery.
