Where Does It Hurt?

Hand / Wrist

Your hands and wrists consist of many muscles, ligaments and bones that enable you to perform countless tasks. However, their utility can make them more susceptible to pain from accidents, over-usage or ongoing conditions. If you notice continuous discomfort in your hands or wrists, we can take a proactive approach to your pain relief.

When you work with us, one of our New York City hand and wrist doctors will help you address these issues and restore your quality of life. We treat many common conditions, including the following:

Arthritis
Carpal tunnel
Wrist injuries

Elbow

Your elbow plays a vital role in your daily activities, from scratching an itch to throwing a baseball. You may experience pain in this area due to tendon inflammation, excessive usage or other causes — especially if you do a lot of heavy lifting or play a sport. Elbow pain can also accompany shoulder pain, depending on the cause of your discomfort.

If you have elbow or shoulder pain, our NYC doctors have the expertise to help you recover. Trust our experts to alleviate issues like:

Soft tissue injuries
Fractures
Work injuries
Frozen shoulder

Hip

Because it’s a ball-and-socket joint, your hip can withstand plenty of rejuvenating jogs, golf games and other activities. As you age, you become more susceptible to major hip pain. If you’re experiencing hip pain, it may be because of natural wear and tear, overuse or a recent injury.

We provide quality hip pain treatment in NYC and beyond. Work with our team to develop a personalized plan for any of the following:

Hip fractures
Rheumatoid arthritis
Hip surgery
Muscle strains

Knee

Knee pain is a common symptom that can result from an injury, medical condition or excessive usage. While minor symptoms may respond well to self-care, professional care often provides quicker and longer-lasting relief. If it is left untreated, knee pain can become a severe concern with continued overuse.

Our neighbors in NYC and the surrounding areas have access to expert knee pain treatment. We specialize in numerous options:

Torn meniscus
Sports injuries
Knee arthroscopies
Bursitis
Loose body removal

Foot/Ankle

Many people experience foot or ankle pain, whether it’s from high heels, overuse or a medical condition. If you have severe or persistent symptoms, it’s best to consult a professional. Seeking treatment for major and minor foot pain allows you to mitigate potential issues.

Your feet are a complex network of bones, joints and soft tissue, so we take our time choosing appropriate treatment solutions. New York Spine Institute specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions such as these:

Ligament injuries
Arthritis
Soft tissue injuries

Cervical / Neck

The cervical spine is the neck region of your spinal cord. This section supports the weight of your skull, helps with posture, and allows you to turn and rotate your head.

The nerves within the cervical spine control other body parts, such as the fingers and shoulders. Because these nerves have widespread effects, you might experience cervical issues outside of your neck before your diagnosis. Our cervical spine doctors in New York City can alleviate these and other issues:

Occipital Neuralgia
Cervical Spinal Myelopathy

Spine Division Pain Management Neurosurgery

Lumbar Spine / Lower Back

The lumbar region comprises five bones in the lower half of your spine, surrounded by intervertebral disks, ligaments, muscles, nerves, tendons and the spinal cord. Your lumbar region supports your body weight and enables motion. Over time, the bones in the spine weaken, increasing the potential for injury and pain

Injuring your lumbar spine can impact your daily life. We offer professional lumbar and lower back pain treatment in and around New York to help you recover from diseases and injuries including:

Herniated Discs
Lower back pain
Muscle strain
Sciatica

Spine Division Pain Management

Thoracic Spine / Upper Back

Many muscles, nerves and ligaments run through your neck and upper back. You can strain your neck from sleeping in awkward positions, looking up or down constantly, wearing heavy necklaces and even allowing stress to linger. Neck and back pain treatment is often nonsurgical, but we can sometimes perform minimally invasive surgery if required.

Maintaining a healthy neck and back can make you more comfortable in daily life. We offer professional back and neck pain treatments in New York City, including care for the following:

Whiplash
Neck pain
Muscle strain
