About

Bio

I'm board-certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation since 1986. I specialize in the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of musculoskeletal problems. My practice is located in Troy, MI at S.P.O.R.T. Physicians, P.C. (Sports, Pain, Occupational, Rehab & Team). I'm known for my ability to locate the origin of pain and dysfunction, as well as my exercise prescriptions and therapeutic injections.

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.

Regularly is best: Dancing and yoga are both very good exercise. Start with smaller amounts that don't wipe you out and can be repeated regularly, then increase each exercise in small increments. Track calories ; exercise. Decrease total calories you consume and increase exercise to lose weight. Good app for tracking diet and exercise is "my fitness pal".

Depends: But should be seeing something by now. May need dosage adjustment, change in medication or other treatment. If you haven't improved yet, time to return to doctor.

Likely lumbar spondy: Gentle range of motion, core strengthening, stretching and walking or any low-impact cardiovascular exercise. Pain can be relieved with over-the-counter medications like advil or aleve (naproxen). Ice for about 45 minutes will address inflammation and swelling, never apply ice to the skin, always over a towel or clothing. Follow this by heat for about 20 to 25 minutes to help soothe and relax tight muscle.
