About

Bio

I am a board certified pain management specialist. My practice is focused on improving quality of life and physical functioning by reducing pain in selected, appropriate patients. Take comfort in my care. I utilize a multidisciplinary approach combining neuromodulatory medications and interventional procedures. I address a strong lifestyle modification approach using evidence based nutrition and exercise modalities.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

A 68-year-old female asked:

Self Protection: When the spine has injury, the muscles near the spine are automatically triggered to tighten up and spasm. This is one way your body protects itself from further damage. When this process goes on too long the spasm interferes with circulation causing the spasm to become hard and fibrotic. Helpful: osteopathic manipulation, massage, muscle relaxants, back strengthening exercises, yoga.

Accessory Muscles: The diaphragm is the muscle that is used primarily for breathing. It is attached to the lower ribs and separates the chest from the belly. Other muscles used to breathe are called accessory muscles of respiration. They are in the neck and between the ribs. Anything that irritates those muscles can cause pain with breathing. Oddly, some irritations at or below the diaphragm can radiate up.

EMG has limitations: It can still be nerve pain even with an emg/ncv, this test does not detect damage to the small nerve fibers that transmit pain. Fibromyalgia although less common in young men, can present with muscle pains in all 4 quadrants of the body, above & below waist, left & right side.
