A specialist in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (Physiatrist) is often the physician of choice for fibromyalgia/back pain sufferers. This type of doctor is a pain management specialist that has a complete understanding of the neurological and musculoskeletal systems of the body.
The Medical Director at our Red Bank, NJ facility heads up a team of practitioners trained in physical therapy, acupuncture, massage therapy, and chiropractic care. This team works together to create and implement individualized rehabilitation strategies to help patients reduce pain, increase movement, and enhance quality of life.
Our medical doctor may use Trigger Point Injections in fibromyalgia patients who are restricted by excessive back pain. This treatment involves the injection of a corticosteroid into trigger points—areas of intense muscle spasm that often cause the back pain experienced by fibromyalgia patients.
Physiatrists are also trained to help with the emotional ramifications of pain and disorder. As such, the pain management specialist at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation is prepared to address the physical and emotional needs of fibromyalgia patients suffering from back pain.
