Comprehensive Medical Pain Management

Medical Pain ManagementPain can stop you in your tracks but it can be alleviated and controlled. NY Spine Medicine is an advanced center that utilizes proven treatment methods to help people live pain-free lives. Because everyone's pain tolerance is different, we recognize that the methods of treating pain should address the individual needs of each patient. Most people don't want to be on pharmaceuticals to control their pain because of side effects and addictive potential. We understand this, and we strive to provide sustained relief without masking the pain.

We are the medicinal experts at simple procedures that alleviate pain. Our physicians specialize in diagnostics and pain management procedures. We offer many non-surgical and minimally invasive procedures to treat pain precisely at the problematic site, which improves the underlying problem and thereby relieves the pain.

What is pain management?

Pain management is the medical discipline dedicated to the relief of pain. Pain treatments at NY Spine Medicine begin with determining the cause of the pain as well as its anatomical source. From there, a plan of action is initiated to eliminate pain, whether from interventional procedures, medication management, or physical therapy.

NY Spine Medicine delivers a multidisciplinary, team-based approach to the prevention, evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of painful disorders. Our staff practices advanced techniques, including pharmaceutical treatment, injection therapy, and rehabilitation, to address complex and multidimensional pain syndromes
