Orthopedic and Sports InjuriesDr. 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.
Orthopedic and sports therapy is specially designed to encompass a wide range of injuries with specific techniques aimed at restoring and sustaining functional ability. Through extensive evaluation and diagnostic measures, physiatrists are in a unique position to develop comprehensive treatment programs.
A large part of orthopedic and sports therapy includes performance enhancement. While this incorporates physical therapy, exercise and strength building, it also includes patient education and counseling on body mechanics and preventative techniques.
