What We Do
Your Recovery Starts Here
Joint Pain Recovery
Aches & Pains
Many things cause aches and pains. Often this discomfort impacts other parts of your health and can affect the quality of your everyday life. There is no reason you have to live with pain. Every day, we work with patients on resolving their back and neck pain, joint pain, headaches, migraines and general muscle soreness. At Uptown PMR, we believe in a balanced approach between traditional medical and chiropractic treatments to alleviate your aches and pains, correct your body’s alignment, and improve your overall health and function so you can live life to the fullest.
Our medical prescribers will first evaluate how we can take away the immediate discomfort or pain and 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.
Trigger Point &
Intra-articular Injection Treatments
Trigger Point & Intra-Articular Injection treatments are a safe and quick way to provide rapid, long-lasting pain relief without damaging the tendons, ligaments, or nerves. These procedures are used to treat muscle spasms, neck and shoulder pain, advanced joint pain, and bursitis.
Uptown PMR has a highly knowledgeable and caring physician on staff with over twenty years of experience with Trigger Point and Intra-articular Injection treatments with an excellent record of pain management success.
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.”
At Uptown PMR, we firmly believe in the benefits of massage therapy when applied to a broad range of conditions. Massage therapy enhances recovery rates, increases circulation, reduces muscle tension, boosts the immune system, and improves range of motion, resulting in a faster recovery. Combined with chiropractic care, massage can help you reach optimal wellness and improve overall body well-being. Each massage therapy plan is specifically tailored to meet your unique pain condition or injury.
Sports Related Injuries
In addition to having a general practice chiropractor and physician on staff, Uptown PMR also has an orthopedic chiropractor and physician board-certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. This unique combination of talents and education allows the doctors at Uptown PMR to diagnose and treat many common sports-related injuries. The sooner you seek professional attention for a sports-related injury, the sooner you can get back out there doing what you love.
