Back and Neck PainDr. Howard Liss treats disorders that cause pain and disability by providing consultative services and soft tissue and joint injections when needed. When medically appropriate, he makes specific referrals for diagnostic testing (lab work, imaging, electrodiagnosis), physical and occupational therapy, interventional procedures (epidurals and facet joint injections), and surgery.
While the natural history of back and neck pain proposes a favorable outcome in a majority of cases, the fact still stands—up to 90% of adults will suffer from some degree of back and neck pain in their lifetime. Although many will visit their primary care physician, the management of back and neck pain continues to move towards a conservative trend, with aggressive non-surgical methods to reduce pain and restore function.
