What is PM&R?

Specialists in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation or Physiatrists, focus on the non-surgical treatment of many musculoskeletal conditions, including back pain, neck pain, disc problems, sciatica, and the numbness or tingling that can result from these conditions. They diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions by devising treatment plans to reduce pain, improve quality of life, and (in some cases) help patients learn to use assistive devices such as braces or wheelchairs.

During the rehabilitation process, PM&R Doctors care for patients’ physical impairments as well the associated emotional challenges. This is an important distinction: Physiatrists treat the patient as a whole, helping with physical, emotional, and social needs during the process of rehabilitation.

Following are examples of conditions treated at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation:

What is PM&R?

Fluoroscopy

The Physiatrists at our Red Bank, NJ facility use a variety of diagnostic tools, including Electrodiagnostic Nerve Testing, Ultrasound, and traditional x-rays. We will also read and interpret the results of MRIs. Fluoroscopy is also used at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation. This is a powerful tool that allows our physicians to view the size, shape, and structure of a patient’s musculoskeletal system while in motion. In our Fluoroscopy suite, patients are positioned between an x-ray source and a fluorescent screen, safely producing live images.

This process helps our physicians make accurate diagnoses, as well as to perform certain injections when necessary. These are used only when pain and inflammation are inhibiting a patient’s ability to undergo a program of rehabilitation. Fluoroscopy allows this type of pain management to be performed with more accuracy, comfort, and better results.

In some cases, pain prevents patients from completing a program of rehabilitation; it is often in this situation that surgery appears to be the best option. Our PM&R Doctors make it possible for patients to reduce pain in order to avoid surgery.

Monmouth Pain and Rehab Testimonial“I wonder why my doctor never recommended all of these benefits.”As I am approaching the last couple of weeks of your suggested 3 month initial treatments, I am so happy I responded to your ad in the paper. I was so skeptical to start. The numbness, tingling, and pain in my arm and wrist has completely gone away. Now, my everyday “general feel” is so much better, I wonder why my general doctor of many years never mentioned all these benefits from having a better aligned spine, and the effect the spine has on all the other parts of our bodies. I give myself a “pat on the back” for traveling from Western Morris County 3 times a week, but mostly for believing in you and your level of service. I have never written a thank you letter to a doctor but in this case I feel I must. I am looking forward to you helping my wife Vera in the next few months. -John W.

Monmouth Pain and Rehab Testimonial“I have tried all different medications, hypnosis, and acupuncture over a course of 30 years, but they only offered temporary relief of my pain.” I had a lot of pain in my wrist before coming to Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation. I have tried all different medications, hypnosis, and acupuncture over a course of 30 years, but they only offered temporary relief of my pain. My pain was so bad that I could not participate in any physical activities. It was really affecting my life! Since I started at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation I have virtually no pain anymore and my posture has improved a lot. I now walk around town with my head up. Additionally, I no longer have headaches and I am off codeine, celebrex, pamelor, and anaprox since starting my treatments. And, I can bowl again! My life has improved so much- I am more active, more alert, and a lot less pain. -Lynn D.
