Living with pain can disrupt your life in many ways. At The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Center, we provide compassionate, cutting edge technology and state of the art treatment options to get you better. The PMR Center has been providing its patients with the best possible care of sports, spine, orthopedic and neuromuscular conditions. The PMR Center is a diagnostic and treatment facility, with an emphasis on non-operative treatment including physical therapy, occupational therapy, patient education, and body mechanics. While the majority of conditions are responsive to non-operative therapy, our physicians will readily refer to and work closely with any other specialists or surgeons our patients may require. And if you are suffering from chronic pain, you want the most compassionate and skilled pain treatments you can find. For that exceptional care, our Bronx pain management offers the best treatments possible.
Our friendly clinical staff and physicians combine their extensive training in physical rehabilitation to provide effective pain management. Causes of pain and disability in the neck and back include problems with discs, nerves, joints, ligaments, or muscles. We use a combination of modalities, or means of treatment, to target each patient’s specific problem. The epidural steroid injections used at our Bronx pain management center have been found to be effective to treatment for patients with sports injuries, neck, lower back, arm, and leg pain. The purpose of the epidural injection is to decrease inflammation and provide pain relief, thereby facilitating active therapy. Their primary use is as one component of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes medication, physical therapy, and education in body mechanics.
Physical therapy is an integral and vital part of rehabilitation after an injury. Therapeutic exercise is the use of exercise for stretching muscles and joints, or strengthening muscles to gain increased power, endurance and stabilization. These exercises also maintain strength and prevent further injuries. If you have had an accident, have sustained an injury, need effective pain management, or have a specific medical condition that could benefit from physical therapy, come to our Bronx pain management office. Our mission is to get you well and keep you strong and healthy so you can return to an active lifestyle.
