What We Do
Where Wellness & Healing Begins
Joint Pain Recovery
Aches & Pains
Many things can cause aches and pains. Sometimes these aches and pains can impact other parts of our health and affect our daily quality of life.
The truth is…there is no reason to live with pain. We work with patients everyday on resolving back and neck pain, migraines and headaches, joint pains and soreness. At UptownPMR, we believe in a balanced approach between traditional medical and chiropractic treatments.
Our first order of business is to evaluate how we can take away the immediate discomfort or pain. Having medical prescribers on staff enables us to explore many options for aiding you in getting that immediate relief you deserve. After that, our focus is on developing a detailed treatment plan to achieve overall healing of the condition.
You don’t need to live with pain and discomfort any longer. If you are ready to begin the healing process and return to a state of health that allows you to live life to the fullest, call us to schedule an exam
Trigger Point &
Intra-articular Injection Treatments
UptownPMR benefits from having a physician who is highly experienced in the application of Trigger Point Injections and Intra-articular Injections. These procedures are commonly used to treat muscle spasms, neck and shoulder pain, advanced joint pain, and bursitis.
Here is what Dr. Kaufman has to offer when it comes to these treatments – “Over the last twenty years, I have had so much success in treating patients with Trigger Point and Intra-articular Injections. I use Trigger Point Injections to treat abnormal muscle spasms along with pain in the neck, shoulder blades, and spine muscles. My Trigger Point Injection patients describe to me that after four-to-five days the spasms begin to just melt away. Intra-articular Injections are especially beneficial in treating advanced joint pain and bursitis. And while the word ‘injection’ sounds uncomfortable, none of my patients would choose not to of had them. Its just not as bad as it sounds.”
Very few people realize that when a physician prescribes massage therapy, it can be covered under almost all major medical plans. At UptownPMR, we firmly believe in the benefits of massage therapy when applied to a broad range of conditions. Whether you have a sports related injury or are suffering from recent vehicular collision, slip, or fall, we employ experienced licensed massage therapists to provide treatment to any patient we feel can benefit from massage’s therapeutic effects.
Sports Related Injuries
At UptownPMR, in addition to a general practice chiropractor and a general practice physician, we also have an orthopedic chiropractor and a physician who Board Certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. This special combination of talents allows us to diagnose and treat many common sports related injuries. The sooner you seek professional attention for a sports related injury, the sooner we can get you back onto the field, on the track, on the court, in the gym, or wherever sports passion lies.
