Understanding the Complex Nature of Pain
A diversified approach allows Peak Medical to offer lifelong solutions for pain. We actively treat every type of condition or injury that causes pain and restricts physical activity.
The following list describes the most common forms of pain we treat. If the pain you are experiencing is not found below, please call us at (908) 665-0770 to learn about the more specific conditions and injuries we handle.
Pain that affects the back is extremely common and tends to impact other parts of the body, including the neck, shoulders or legs. It is generally caused by irritation to the muscles and joints, injury, or poor posture and sitting techniques.
Our team has a multispecialty background and is able to address every form of back pain. Depending on your condition, we design a treatment plan that may consist of chiropractic care, physical therapy, internal medicine, and acupuncture.
The ankle is one of the most often injured joints. Damage to the ankle involves great discomfort and can impede your ability to perform daily activities. Injuries (sprains, tendinitis, or fractures) and overuse are the most typical causes of ankle pain and create muscle soreness, bruising, stiffness, and chronic inflammation.
We offer a variety of treatments that heal ankle pain without the need for surgical procedures or prescription drugs. Our recommendations are based on individual needs and may include laser therapy, acupuncture, and physical therapy.
Arthritis is a painful condition that causes joints and tissues to inflame. It can affect joints bilaterally and spread to other areas of the body, including the skin, heart or lungs. The exact cause of arthritis can be hard to determine, but the symptoms are treatable once a diagnosis has been made. Arthritis erodes cartilage, and if left untreated, it can lead to severe bone damage as the disease advances.
An early diagnosis is the best way to delay or stop the progression of arthritis. We utilize a mixture of therapies to successfully treat every kind of arthritis, including progressive medicine, acupuncture, physiotherapy, and chiropractic care.
Persistent swelling in the hands and wrists frequently leads to a condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome. It is often caused by overuse that applies too much pressure and restriction on the muscles, joints, ligaments and nerves. Initial symptoms include numbness and pain or tingling in the hand, specifically to the thumb, index, long, and ring fingers.
We feature some of the most advanced procedures available to not only treat, but prevent carpal tunnel syndrome. Every procedure is non-invasive and may entail a combination of laser therapy, acupuncture and physical therapy.
Constant dizziness is a dangerous condition that can greatly affect your life. Fainting is a typical side effect that can cause a person to fall and injure themselves. Consulting a doctor to address this problem is an important part of preventing accidents.
Our team of clinicians work together to determine the source of your dizziness and offer treatment options based upon your diagnosis. We primarily use physical therapy and refer you to a fall prevention specialist who can give you the tools needed to protect yourself from injuries sustained from fainting.
Many people experience headaches and migraines on a regular basis. Symptoms often include blurred vision, nausea, and an inability to concentrate and complete tasks. It is important to address headaches if they persist and start to affect daily functions. This can be an indication of an underlying condition that should be treated as soon as possible.
There are many different causes of headaches and we offer several solutions that provide immediate and lasting relief. All treatments are designed to restore your health and get you back to a pain-free life. Every modality is based upon your specific condition and may consist of chiropractic care, acupuncture or physical therapy.
The hip is a weight-bearing joint that supports a wide range of motion and fluid movement between the legs. Erosion of the cartilage that cushions the joint is generally a result of injury or normal aging. Overuse and sports can also induce pain by damaging the ligaments, tendons, joints or muscles in these areas.
Hip and leg pain can be severe and lead to other problems, such as arthritis, muscle loss or immobility. Our facility relies on comprehensive treatment options to heal this kind of pain without surgery or pharmaceutical drugs. Every procedure is non-invasive and may include exercise therapy, acupuncture and laser therapy.
The knee consists of bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and cartilage. Damage to this area happens frequently and is normally caused by injury, overuse, and degeneration from the aging process. Living with chronic knee pain is difficult and can significantly affect your level of function and mobility.
The right treatment varies by patient and we perform a thorough health assessment to accurately diagnose your specific type of knee pain. All of our procedures are non-surgical and may entail chiropractic care, acupuncture and physical therapy.
Peripheral neuropathy is damage to the nervous system that can have debilitating effects on the body. It is generally a result of a traumatic injury, immune system disease, infection, or another condition such as diabetes. Neuropathy can be acute or chronic and impact more than one kind of nerve at once. Symptoms may involve painful cramps, numbness, spasms, muscle loss, impaired balance and loss of coordination.
Early diagnosis and treatment are essential to finding long-term pain relief. Depending on the source of nerve damage, we customize non-surgical recovery options to treat neuropathy. Therapies may consist of acupuncture, deep tissue laser therapy, massage therapy, hand or foot braces, or physical therapy.
The neck is comprised of many joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons. The entire structure is sensitive and can be easily altered by external factors. Damage to this area can lead to extreme discomfort that affects your ability to perform routine tasks. Neck pain is usually caused by injuries, accidents, deterioration, or other chronic conditions.
Our pain management center features advanced procedures that address every form of neck pain or disorder. We begin by locating the primary source of your pain and customize treatment options that may involve chiropractic care, physical therapy, acupuncture, and deep massage therapy.
Rotator Cuff Pain
Soreness that impairs the shoulders and arms is generally caused by rotator cuff syndrome. The rotator cuff connects the arm bone to the shoulder and helps you lift and move your arms. This painful condition weakens the shoulder and involves loss of curvature in the neck and muscle dysfunction. Additional triggers of rotator cuff pain include: arthritis, edema, bursitis, ligament problems, and joint or neck disorders.
We integrate multiple disciplines to relieve pain associated with rotator cuff syndrome. Our clinicians specialize in pain management techniques that reduce pain and improve range of movement. Treatments are determined on an individual basis and may combine physical therapy, laser therapy and acupuncture.
Sciatica is described as severe pain that moves along the sciatic nerve. It begins with a shooting sensation in the lower back and radiates down the legs to the feet. The condition is brought on by a compression or pinched nerve that results in pain, tingling, numbness or inflammation. The effects of sciatica are often constant and uncomfortable, but are highly treatable.
We have years of experience treating sciatica and work together to identify the primary source of your pain. Our non-surgical recovery options quickly restore mobility and may include physical therapy, laser therapy, acupuncture and chiropractic care.
Shoulder pain involves any discomfort to the neck or upper back and arms. It is usually a result of an injury or damage to the muscles, bones, or tendons in those areas. Certain diseases can also induce shoulder pain and impact your range of motion and level of flexibility. Shoulder pain can be acute or chronic and include swelling, stiffness, instability or arthritis.
The intricate structure of the shoulder can make it difficult to diagnose the exact cause of pain. Our team of experts offers a wide range of therapies that relieve all types of shoulder pain. Every treatment plan is customized and may combine chiropractic care, physical therapy, acupuncture, and laser therapy.
