The doctors and therapists on Sinai Hospital’s Pain Management team take an approach to pain that treats the whole person, with advanced treatments including medicine, injections, nerve stimulation and psychology.

Conditions treated include:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Work-related injury

- Radiculopathy - Pain, numbness, tingling or weakness caused by a compressed nerve in the spine.
- Neuropathic/post–herpetic pain - Pain originating from nerves damaged such as after a viral outbreak like shingles.
- Reflex sympathetic dystrophy - Pain, swelling, and vasomotor dysfunction of an extremity often the result of trauma or surgery.
- Joint injections
- Trigger point injections
- Botox® - For involuntary muscle stiffness.
- Fluoroscopic-guided Spinal Injections
- Steroid injections
- Facet blocks
- Radio frequency rhizotomy - Using a highly localized heat generated with radiofrequency to deaden the degenerative nerves in the facet joints of the spine, effectively disconnecting the transmission of pain signals.

- Electromyography/Nerve Conduction Study
- Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation - Stimulates the nerves, scrambling the pain signals sent to the brain, and encouraging the release of endorphins.
