Spine Care & Pain Relief

Our New York Spine care and pain relief centers practice is a branch of medicine employing an interdisciplinary approach for easing the suffering and improving the quality of life of those living with chronic pain. The typical spine care & pain relief team includes spine doctors and nurse practitioners. The team may also include other mental-health specialists and massage therapists. Pain sometimes resolves promptly once the underlying trauma or abnormal pathology has healed, and is treated by one practitioner. Effective management of chronic pain, however, frequently requires the coordinated efforts of the management team approach.

Medicine treats injury and pathology to support and speed healing; and treats distressing symptoms such as pain to relieve suffering during treatment and healing. When a painful injury or pathology is resistant to treatment and persists, when pain persists after the injury or pathology has healed, and when medical science cannot identify the cause of pain, the task of medicine is to relieve suffering. Treatment approaches at our New York spine care and pain relief center include medications, interventional procedures, physical therapy, application of ice and/or heat, and psychological measures, such as biofeedback.
