About Knee Injuries

Your knees keep you mobile. When you hurt your knee in an accident or injury, your mobility is challenged and the pain forces you to postpone many daily activities you took for granted. Don’t ignore your injured knee. If it’s not better within a day or two, consult an expert like Dr. Amr Hosny at the Spine & Rehab Group in Manhattan and northern New Jersey. This practice has the experience and technology to correctly diagnose your knee injury and apply the proper non-surgical swollen knee treatment. Take care of your knees; call the nearest office for an examination and treatment.

Why Does My Knee Hurt?

Knee injuries cause knee pain, often accompanied by swelling. While you may have just sprained your knee, it’s possible the injury did more serious damage to the knee’s structure than you realize. Since your knees enable mobility and because they’re such complex joints, you need an expert to determine what’s wrong with your knee and how to treat it.

Dr. Amr Hosny is one of the knee specialists at the Spine & Rehab Group, with locations in New York City, as well as Morris County, Union County and Bergen County in New Jersey. They have years of experience dealing with knee injuries and the technology to accurately diagnose and provide treatment for a swollen knee. Without treatment, your knee injury can lead to more severe damage, affecting your mobility and quality of life.

What Causes Knee Injuries?

Knee injuries

Your knee is the largest and strongest of all the joints in your body. But its function as a weight-bearing joint and its structural complexity make it susceptible to injury and debilitating disease, such as arthritis. Depending on how you hurt your knee, you can feel the pain from an injury on the inside or outside, behind or in front of your knee.

You can hurt your knees in many ways. You may smack your knee in a car accident or fall. If you suffer a sports injury like runner’s knee or patellofemoral pain syndrome, you feel a dull pain around the front of your knee, along with a grinding or clicking sound coming from the kneecap. Other types of knee injuries include:

Why Do I Need Treatment for a Swollen Knee?

Your swollen knee is a clear indication that something is amiss in your knee joint. Along with the inflammation, you may have heard a popping noise at the time of the injury when the pain started. If your knee is swollen, you may find yourself starting to limp as the pain becomes so severe that you can’t move your knee.

A damaged knee may not heal on its own, especially if the injury is more severe than a sprain. Reasons why you should get a knee injury swelling treatment include:

patient TESTIMONIALS ★★★★★

I came to the spine and rehab group for my back and leg pain. I was able to get an appointment the same day I called. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The doctors were very knowledgeable and took time to explain what was causing my pain and answer all my questions. I felt comfortable having my procedure done in their state of the art surgery center, where the staff made you feel at ease. They are very easy to reach and available to answer all your questions.

I've had office visits and procedures done and everyone to the front desk, to the nurses. and the doctors were just great and knowledgeable. They really got me feeling better as well. Since I starting going there my pain has improved greatly! I would recommend The Spine & Rehab Group to everyone!

Val B.

These days it’s hard to find a professional, yet extremely caring physicians office, particularly in the field of Pain Management. Dr. Hosny, Dr. Chu, physician’s assistant Summer and the entire staff have managed to make this happen. Robin helped me many times with insurance to ensure that I got my shots in a timely manner (Hi Robin!). I’ve been going to this office for about three years and I couldn’t be more pleased!


I went to Dr. Hosny with lower back pain. I spend many hours sitting in a truck for my job. After an hour or so I would get pain in my back. Since I am a truck driver, pain killers were not an option for me. After a few sessions with Dr. Hosny, I am pain free. The staff at New Jersey Pain Care Center and are wonderful and caring people. I would recommend anyone go to Dr. Hosny if they want real results.


I had gone to Dr. Hosny with severe back pain after spinal surgery. It was debilitating pain that stopped me from being able to function normally. Dr. Hosny suggested that I have a Spinal Cord Stimulator implanted in my back. It is the best thing I EVER did. I am so excited to be able to return to my normal life with no medication. My experience at the pain center was wonderful. The nurses were very understanding and kind.


I have had back surgeries that provided me no relief from my pain. After a few treatments with Dr. Hosny, I have almost no discomfort. I have no need for my pain medication anymore, and have been able to go back to working out and enjoying activities with my family. I was pleasantly surprised at the treatment I received at New Jersey Pain Care Center. The staff is very nice, and treats you with respect. The facility is clean, bright and everything is brand new.


I had been having pain in my neck for many years. I had been to other doctors and they all recommended that I have surgery. I was hesitant to get surgery, so I wanted one more opinion. I had a friend tell me about Dr. Hosny and New Jersey Pain Care Center. From the moment I met Dr. Hosny I knew he wasn’t your average doctor. He took the time to listen to my concerns about surgery, and he agreed. After my cervical radiofrequency, I have full range of motion back in my neck, and best of all, no pain.

Use a cold compress as a swollen knee treatment and take it easy for a few days until your knee injury heals. You have an option of wearing a brace or using crutches to prevent your knee from moving too much.
