If you are looking for a pain management service, we hope you will visit us at our pain management practice, Robert Lanter DO. When you come to us for pain management in Rockville Centre, our physiatrist, Dr. Robert Lanter, will be able to provide you with pain management services that will improve your quality of life.
At our pain management practice, we help patients who are suffering from a variety of pain including pain from headaches, joint pain, injury, and backache. Some of our patients experience other types of chronic pain that can include tendinitis, sinus pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as pain that affects a specific part of the body. It is estimated that almost 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. Chronic pain can be mild or extremely painful, and for some it can make it nearly impossible for them to function on an everyday basis. At our center for pain management in Rockville Centre we help patients get their pain under control using a variety of methods. When a patient has chronic pain, signals of pain can remain in the nervous system for months, or in some cases even for years. It is easy to understand how this will take a physical and emotional toll on the patient. While different types of chronic pain medications are effective, and even important for pain management, there are other important tools available for managing chronic pain. Physical therapy can be a critical part of a patient’s pain management program as it can help with the patient’s wellness, mobility, and ability to function independently. If physical therapy is not applied correctly it can make pain worse so it is important for a physical therapist to provide the precisely right pain management treatment for you. At our practice we stress osteopathic manipulative therapy, acupuncture, trigger point injections, as well as physical therapy.
