There is a wide range of reasons to see a physiatrist, from sudden back pain caused by lifting a heavy object to chronic carpal tunnel syndrome resulting from prolonged computer use. At Mount Sinai Doctors-Westchester, our highly skilled physiatry specialist has extensive experience caring for acute and chronic conditions affecting the neuromusculoskeletal system. Whether your discomfort is coming from an accident or illness, we provide both long-standing and the newest available treatments to relieve pain and improve function.
Conditions We Treat
Our physiatry specialist is board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation with a concentration in spine and musculoskeletal medicine. Using a comprehensive, non-surgical approach, our physiatry practice treats a variety of spinal conditions, including back pain, neck pain, disc herniation, sciatica, spinal stenosis, sacroiliac joint pain, and spinal fractures. Our team also provides care for a number of musculoskeletal conditions, such as shoulder pain, elbow pain, hand and wrist pain, hip pain, and knee pain.
Treating patients of all ages, our practice believes in exhausting all noninvasive therapies before recommending surgery. Instead of focusing on the condition or the part of the body affected, we are committed to a holistic approach that considers the patient as a whole person.
