Learn More About Pain Management at Rehabilitation Medicine Center of NY

The goal of pain management at Rehabilitation Medicine Center of New York is to improve your quality of life and help you return to everyday activities.  Whether your pain resulted from an on-the-job incident, is accident-related, post-operative, or episodic, our staff of experts offer many different interventional treatment solutions.

Precise diagnosis

Our doctors begin by reviewing your medical history, previous treatments and outcomes, and perform a physical and neurological examination.

  • MRI is ordered to evaluate your problem.
  • Sometimes a plain x-ray is performed.
  • Electrodiagnostic tests—electromyography measures electrical activity in a muscle, and nerve velocity conduction studies evaluate the speed at which a nerve transmits signals.

The information gathered during your exam is combined with all test results to confirm your diagnosis.

Our Doctors ask many questions, specifically about your pain.

  • When did your pain start?
  • Did a particular event precede pain?
  • Has your pain improved or worsened?
  • Does pain radiate into another part of your body?
  • On a scale of zero (no pain) to 10 (agony), what is your current pain level?
  • Does pain affect your ability to work or perform ordinary activities of daily life?
  • Do pain and symptoms disrupt sleep?
  • What aggravates pain?
  • What eases or improves your pain?
  • Have you kept a pain journal?

Do you experience any of the following symptoms?

  • Numbness
  • Weakness
  • Tingling
  • Sensations of pins and needles
  • Other symptoms?

Treatment depends on your diagnosis

Depending on your diagnosis, we may combine different interventionaltreatments to help resolve your pain and improve mobility.  Interventional means to ‘intervene’ to stop and manage pain while you start physical therapy, sometimes called functional rehabilitation.  Activity stimulates circulation, helps healing, and releases endorphins—your body’s natural pain fighters.
