Joint pain can be caused by injury or disease of the joint or nearby tissues, including the cartilage that serves as cushioning for the adjacent bones; the tendons and ligaments that attach muscles to bone and stabilize the joint; the muscles; or the bursae, fluid-filled sacs that provide lubrication near joints.
Our Multidisciplinary Approach to Care
Our board-certified joint pain specialists are experts in diagnosing dysfunction in any of these structures that can lead to pain in the joint.
Our team approach includes physiatrists—physicians who specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation—as well as nurses, physical therapists and occupational therapists, who work together to provide comprehensive and expert care.
Treatment for the Full Range of Joint Pain Conditions and Injuries
We treat the full spectrum of joint pain—knee pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, wrist pain, ankle pain—caused by any number of conditions, including:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Meniscus tears
- Rotator cuff injuries
Some types of joint pain and injury—such as meniscus tears and rotator cuff injuries –tend to occur in younger individuals, while conditions like arthritis pain tend to occur in patients over the age of 60; among the most common reasons older patients come to see us is for arthritis pain relief.
No matter what kind of joint pain a patient is experiencing, our expert joint pain doctors work closely with patients to improve their quality of life, mobility, and range of motion.
After a careful physician evaluation at our state-of-the-art facility in New York City, each patient receives a treatment tailored specifically to their needs. The vast majority of our patients are treated conservatively, through exercise, altering activities or techniques, physical therapy, medications, or injections.
