When it comes to physical medicine and rehabilitation, you need only think of us at The Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Center in Englewood. As we’re fast approaching our 30th anniversary, we continue to provide only the best, most experienced, and expert care. Our focus is on addressing, managing, and treating conditions such as spinal, orthopedic, neuromuscular, and sports injuries without resorting to surgery. Our non-invasive protocols include physical therapy, occupational therapy, patient education, and instruction on body mechanics. In many cases, The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Center in Englewood is successful in achieving the stated goals. However, when surgery or other specialties are required, we can provide a referral and/or work in conjunction with other health care professionals to see to it that your needs are met properly.
Physical therapy, which revolves around stretching muscles and joints through exercise or building up muscles for the purpose of increasing strength and stamina, is just one of the disciplines use in our physical medicine in Englewood. In many cases, pain can be managed and the effects of injuries overcome through putting in the focused effort under professional guidance.
Pain can also be addressed, as part of a comprehensive strategy, with epidural injections, particularly when the problem is in the neck, lower back, arm, or leg. It is not uncommon for the pain in the arms or leg to be traced back to the neck or back and the result of compressed nerves. This can be due to a bulging disc, bone spur, or scar tissue. Epidural injections serve to lessen inflammation. In combination with physical therapy and possibly with medication, and education in body mechanics, these injections can be highly effective.
Sports medicine and rehabilitation is another of our specialties. Our Englewood office has doctors as well as physical therapists who have worked extensively with sports injuries and in dealing with the pain that they cause. We’re skilled at the complex management of treating problems that involve discs, nerves, joints, ligaments, and muscles. You can have complete confidence in us because our solid reputation is well earned. Just call us today and schedule an examination. Pain need not be something you have to live with.
