Associates in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation doctors treat a spectrum of problems affecting the spine, from neck and back pain, to conditions such as spinal stenosis and scoliosis, to spinal cord injury. As rehabilitation specialists, our goal is to provide non-surgical treatment to help our patients gain maximum function and return as quickly as possible to work and to their daily routines.

Low Back Pain

Low back pain is the most common form of physical disability. An estimated 80 percent of all Americans will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. Back pain is the second leading cause of work absenteeism. Studies show that early aggressive treatment of back injuries by a physical medicine doctor results in quicker recovery and fewer lost work days. Treatment centers around various combinations of exercise and medication.

Neck Pain

Treatment for any neck condition is recommended as soon as possible to minimize the danger of further aggravation. There are very broad and general approaches to the treatment of neck pain. Your doctor will develop an individual treatment plan for you.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Between 8,000 and 10,000 people experience a spinal cord injury (SCI) each year, causing about 250,000 people today to be living with the condition. PM&R physicians have been pioneers in the treatment and management of spinal cord injuries.
