Dr. Joseph Mejia, D.O., Red Bank NJ Pain Management
Dr. Mejia is board certified in Physiatry, a medical specialty also known as Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R). He is also fellowship-trained interventional pain management. After completing his residency at NYU/Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation, he received fellowship training in Interventional Pain/Musculoskeletal Medicine at UMDNJ/Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation.
Dr. Mejia works under the paradigm that ‘less is more’; this conservative methodology allows him to help patients reduce symptoms with as little pharmaceutical and/or surgical intervention as possible.
Dr. Mejia uses Fluoroscopy and Ultrasound — imaging techniques that allow physicians to assess and treat musculoskeletal conditions and perform injection techniques such as Epidural Steroid Injections, Facet Injections, Sacroiliac Joint Injections, Radiofrequency Ablation, and Peripheral Joint Injections (shoulders, hips, knees, etc). Injections are used only when necessary to reduce pain and inflammation so that patients may reap the benefits of rehabilitation.
