July 22, 2020
Chronic Back Pain Diagnosis and Treatment Available Now
Have you been waiting a long time to see a doctor about your chronic back pain? Maybe you’re a new patient and the doctor’s office you called has an extensive waiting list. Or maybe you’ve been unable to see a doctor due to closure from COVID-19. Or perhaps your back pain is so severe, that the thought of driving to a doctor’s appointment and sitting in a waiting room seems unbearable. Pain Treatment Specialists in NY can allay all those concerns and give you the prompt relief you seek.
Our Caring Pain Management Doctors Won’t Keep You Waiting
The Harvard-trained pain management doctors at Pain Treatment Specialists know how excruciating back pain can be. Whether it’s short term or chronic back pain, each moment is a moment too long. While we spend extra time getting to know you and your health concerns, we don’t waste your time by overscheduling or understaffing like some doctors do. We’ll make sure you’re booked as soon as possible, and won’t leave you lingering in the waiting room. You’ll talk to our caring team before you arrive to determine insurance coverage, preferred office location, and the nearest transportation stop for your travel. You’ll find our NY office conveniently located near major transit stops like Grand Central Station to make travel swift and painless.
Our Board Certified Pain Specialists Can Care for You at Home
If you’ve been avoiding the doctor because travel discomfort seems too unbearable, our compassionate team can speak to you from the comfort of home. They can offer solutions to alleviate discomfort so that you can comfortably come to the office if needed. Some back pain treatment won’t even require you to leave home, particularly if you’ve already been diagnosed. If you prefer to stay home for other reasons, like the risk of infectious diseases or inability to travel, our telemedicine consultations can provide relief right where you are. Don’t delay seeking treatment because you don’t want to visit the office. Our board certified doctors will gladly consult with you from home.
Pain Care That Puts Patient Safety First
Our philosophy regarding pain care is different than you will find at other back pain treatment NY practices. Some practitioners focus on dulling the pain, or sending patients off with prescriptions they’ll have to refill indefinitely. Others perform unnecessary, invasive surgery, rather than trying non-invasive methods first. But our award-winning team knows that surgery is not only unnecessary in many cases, it even complicates and worsens back pain in many instances. And the narcotic pain medicines many back pain treatment NY clinics prescribe are addictive and add significant side effects.
So, at Pain Treatment Specialists, our pain care modalities are centered around doing no harm. Our minimally invasive procedures use state-of-the-art technology for diagnosis and treatment. As such, we’re able to pinpoint and address pain at the source, rather than using systemic medications to temporarily dull pain. Our doctors are experts at identifying the cause of chronic back pain and treating it gently and effectively.
Our Solutions for Pain Include Gentle Innovative Techniques
If you visit another back pain treatment NY practice, you might only get one treatment option. That doctor might only perform chiropractic manipulations, perform surgery, or prescribe pain relief pills. But at Pain Treatment Specialists, our solutions for pain include a wealth of interventional techniques. Our team holds multiple certifications in pain medicine and pain management, as well as fields like anesthesiology and hospice care. This means we’re exceptionally qualified to deliver pain relief without invasive procedures. Within minutes, you can be free from the chronic back pain or neck pain that’s hindered you for too long. And our pain care modalities are always interventional, not invasive, so we prevent additional pain.
Effective Pain Management Doesn’t Mean a Lifetime of Pills
If your current back pain treatment in NY is an endless prescription of harmful opiate-based narcotic medication, call us for a second opinion. The latest research not only exposes the risks of such medications, it also finds them to be less effective than presumed. In fact, most of those pain medicines require continual increases in dosing to achieve even minimal relief. In effect, you become dependent on narcotics, without eliminating back pain. Instead, you’ll likely develop additional undesirable symptoms as side effects. Our board certified pain care experts can help you stop taking opioids and get better relief with customized treatments.
Herniated Discs? Arthritis? Pinched Nerve? We Have Solutions
Back pain is incredibly common, but the causes are quite diverse. Back pain can present in the lower back (lumbar), middle back (thoracic), or as neck pain (cervical). Pain can originate from muscles, bones, joints, discs, nerves, tendons, ligaments, and even surrounding organs and tissue. Back pain is even commonly referred from other areas like the reproductive and digestive systems. So, how can you tell where your pain is coming from? You probably can’t. For example, if you fall, you might know that the back pain started when you fell, but you can’t know if it’s a bone fracture, a muscle strain, herniated discs, or internal bleeding without a doctor’s expertise. Our team has state-of-the-art technology for diagnosis and treatment that many back pain treatment NY practices aren’t trained to use.
How Our Diagnosis and Treatment are Different
Our Ivy League doctors use intuitive technology like fluoroscopic guided imaging to locate the source of your pain. Our gentle use of radiofrequency, ablations, epidurals, and injections can confirm a diagnosis and treat it with a single injection. We don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to chronic back pain, nor do we try multiple things to see what works. We carefully and thoroughly diagnose the cause of back and neck pain before targeting it with the optimal treatment. Our pain care has you back on your feet within minutes, through outpatient, non-invasive procedures. To learn more about our interventional techniques, contact us today! We look forward to seeing you soon and making your chronic back pain a distant memory.
