Countless Americans endure debilitating pain every day. We live longer and therefore have a much higher chance of experiencing painful conditions than our ancestors.
“Pain is a symptom,” says Dorota M. Gribbin, M.D., Assistant Clinical Professor at Columbia University – College of Physicians and Surgeons, Chairman of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital at Hamilton and Medical Director of the Comprehensive Pain and Regenerative Center. “In order to manage pain effectively, it is essential to pinpoint its cause.”
Named one of the best doctors in the New York Metro Area by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. for 13 consecutive years between 1999 and 2012, the pain management specialist uses a minimally invasive approach to outsmart tough pain. Her first step is to obtain a global understanding of the patient, including specific complaints and past medical and social history. Next come diagnostic studies such as blood tests, x-rays, MRI and electrodiagnostic studies (EMG/NCV).
REGENERATE rather than Replace!
Regenerate rather than replace your joints, tendons, muscles, skin, and wounds with Regenerative Injection Therapy with Growth Factors in Platelets Rich Plasma (PRP) and Kinines in Platelets Poor Plasma (PPP). PRP therapy strengthens and heals arthritic and strained joints, tendons, ligaments, muscles, and skin — including nonhealing wounds and aging skin of your face. PRP injections can be performed all over the body. It is a natural regenerative method of treatment of sports injuries, arthritic joints, lower back pain, disc disease, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, ACL and meniscal tears, shin splints, rotator cuff tears, plantar fasciitis, iliotibial band syndrome, pyriformis syndrome, tennis/golfer’s elbow, sprained/ torn muscles, and aging skin.
When PRP is injected into the damaged area it stimulates the tendon or ligament, causing mild inflammation that triggers the healing cascade. As a result new collagen begins to develop. As this collagen matures it begins to shrink causing the tightening and strengthening of the tendons or ligaments of the damaged area. The initial consultation with the doctor will determine if PRP/PP therapy is right for you.
RADIOFREQUENCY: A Revolutionary Modality in the Treatment of Painful Conditions and in Body Regeneration & Rejuvenation.
Surgery should be the last resort. Most painful conditions are treated conservatively with a nonsurgical approach. In addition to medications, physical modalities (ultrasound, TENS, massage, exercise) and injection techniques RADIOFREQUENCY is a revolutionary technology which incapacitates the conduction of pain and also treats cellulite, tightens the subcutaneous tissue and erases scars and wrinkles.
Traditionally, therapeutic injections have involved injecting an anti-inflammatory agent, usually corticosteroids. Good news: not necessarily anymore!
Radiofrequency ablation of the median branch sensory nerve “turns off” a small nerve which conducts pain. It is used for effective treatment of pain with long lasting results. The outcomes are amazing: years of pain relief, lowering or eliminating the need for pain medications. Skin tightening, nonsurgical face lift and smoothing of the skin surface has proven to be effective in the treatment of acne, skin scars and sun damaged skin as well as cellulite and excessive fatty tissue.
BOTOX Injections for chronic headaches.
Botox is the only FDA approved preventive treatment that is injected by a doctor every three months for patients with chronic migraine headaches, spasticity, dystonia, and torticolis.
