At NJ Pain & Spine, our pain management practitioners treat each patient individually. Using the latest equipment and innovative procedures to diagnose pain, the practitioners determine a plan to meet the patients needs. We assemble the appropriate interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals who can best help our patients. This approach allows our pain management physicians a full spectrum of treatment options.

We know that understanding and effectively managing pain can be challenging. The impact of pain requires an understanding of the whole person; that is, the mind, body and spirit. Since you may have consulted several medical professionals already, you are well aware of the difficulty in receiving adequate pain diagnosis and care. We are glad you have chosen us as your TEAM to treat your pain effectively. We are committed to providing a pain management program that will meet your needs. While our integrative approach utilizes “conventional” treatments such as medications, fluoroscopic injections, physical therapy or surgery. Our physicians are pioneers in minimally invasive techniques such as endoscopic micro and laser surgery. We may also refer our patients to clinicians who practice complimentary painrelieving techniques, such as, acupuncture, counseling, bio-feedback, massage or chiropractic manipulations, so you can enjoy every moment.
