We specialize in musculoskeletal and neurological injury providing integrated care in the treatment of these conditions.
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is the branch of medicine emphasizing the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disorders related to nerves, muscles, bones, joints and the brain that may produce temporary or permanent impairment; spanning from low back pain to carpal tunnel and sciatica to traumatic brain injury. https://www.aapmr.org/about-physiatry/about-physical-medicine-rehabilitation
Treatment includes physical therapy, modalities such as TENS, Electrical-stimulation, therapeutic massage; non-opioid medications to address pain, spasm, sleep disorders and other barriers to recovery; and injections, such as joint, muscle, tendon or nerve blocks. We use diagnostic tools such as x-ray, MRI, CT, Ultrasound, and Electromyography (EMG/NCS)
A test of your nerves and muscles using small electrical impulses and a small gauge needle. Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) test how well the electrical impulses are traveling to the nerve. Electromyography (EMG) uses a small needle to assess the muscles and connection to the nerves. https://www.aanem.org/Patients
A non-invasive procedure using high-frequency sound waves to visualize muscle, tendons, bones and joints to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal problems.
Injections are used to alleviate pain and improve function. They may be performed with ultrasound guidance to visualize the path of the needle and accurately place the medication. Examples include hip, knee, and shoulder joints. Trigger points for myofascial pain, and Botox for spasm. These are coupled with therapy to maximize the patient's physical function.
