Women’s HealthDr. 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 role of women in society continues to evolve, the 21st century is marked by numerous health concerns for women. This can make it increasingly difficult to keep up with growing demands in regard to time and energy. While time management may be a factor for some, others are suffering from setbacks following surgery, preexisting medical conditions and chronic pain. This is as well as complex pre and postpartum conditions.
When it comes to women’s health, physiatrists are specially positioned to identify and coordinate selective treatment and rehabilitative services that are comprehensive. They take into account the unique needs and goals of women. Given their education and expertise across multiple disciplines, physiatrists advise therapies that are initiated through a team of medical professionals. They include physical therapists, occupational therapists, clinicians, psychologists and interventionists. For a wide variety of conditions that affect the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons, physiatrists carefully consider the design of a woman’s body. They understand how changes in structures play a role in pain and limited mobility. Without question, women benefit from a personalized and conservative approach with attentive care that empowers them in their journey.
