Why Physical Therapy Is Critical To Maintain Pain Relief


Dr. Allen is the Medical Director of New York Pain Medicine, a facility that provides physical therapy on site. One of the things that differentiates us is that everybody here is working here as a team.As the medical director, he is in constant contact with the therapists and acupuncturist to ensure that their vision for each patient’s treatment regimen is accomplished. All the notation is visible throughout all the professionals here in the office. From there, we can devise an oral medication regimen and what’s interesting is that for different types of pain certain oral medications work best.
