Physical medicine can be a tremendous help in the treatment and relief of painful conditions and maladies, and when you turn to our physiatrist in Rockville Centre, you can feel assured that you are receiving the absolute best care possible. Unfortunately, some doctors are too quick to suggest surgery for many problems that can be effectively and safely addressed through non-invasive means. By availing yourself of our services, you can put the odds in your favor of a favorable outcome without needing a procedure to get it.
Surgery can always be an option of last resort, but should not be the first option for problems that include fibromyalgia, pain in your lower back or neck, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, joint pain, pinched nerves in the neck or back, and neuropathies, which can be due to diseases such as diabetes or can result from injuries that result from a car accident, work, or participation in sports. Regardless, our physiatrist in Rockville Centre can work with you to effect positive improvement.
The process of physical medicine and rehabilitation begins with a thorough evaluation by our physiatrist in Rockville Centre. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. We know that you, our valued patient, are an individual and that your needs are unique. That is why your treatment will be tailored to you specifically. Targeted neurodiagnostic testing will be done as part of a full medical consultation. The treatment options that are available include trigger point injections, which are helpful for painful muscle spasms and sciatica; osteopathic manipulative therapy, a method that not only relieves pain, but can promote healing, and address muscle pain, as well as being useful in the treatment of asthma, sinus disorders, carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, and menstrual pain.
Our physiatrist in Rockville Centre also provides acupuncture, which is utilized in the treatment of pain, and also very effective for smoking, anxiety, and weight loss. We do also offer medically supervised weight loss. Among our other valuable services are cancer rehabilitation, amputee, care, electro diagnostic medicine, nuero rehabilitation, osteopathic manipulative treatment, handling musculoskeletal disorders and spine conditions, and spasticity management.
