New Jersey Pain Center has established itself as one of the premier pain management practices in North America. It is also a teaching practice that has trained many fellows in this focused area of expertise.
Every member of the practice continually seeks to find a balance between the severity of the medical condition, and the patient’s desire and ability to be part of their own treatment. We work in partnership with our patients to treat the entire spectrum of impact that chronic pain has on their lives. It is very common for patients to arrive at our practice in a state of clinical depression, without having slept for months, as a result of pain-related sleep disorders.

Pain – a roadblock to healing
There are many causes for pain, and every case is based on a search for the root cause of a patient’s pain, not just a “quick fix” approach aimed only at symptomatic relief. When pain is managed properly, the net result is a more active lifestyle, which in itself leads to a healthier existence.
Here are just a few causes and types of pain:
- migraines and cluster headaches
- reflex sympathetic dystrophy
- failed back surgery syndrome
- immune system disorders
- vertebroplasty (vertebral compression fracture)
- herniated disc
- failed discectomy
- back pain
- neck pain
- myofacial pain
- complex regional pain syndrome
“Pain management is not just injections, physical therapy, relaxation techniques, or biofeedback, or pain medication. It is a combination of all of these aspects. It is multidisciplinary and multifactorial.”
