Do you suffer from back pain or neck and shoulder tension from sitting in front of a desk all day? Are you afflicted with aches from past or recent sports injuries? Do you like to be active but your pain is holding you back? Are you seeking non-invasive treatment alternatives so that you can avoid surgery? Perhaps you have pain that is unexplained and cannot be traced back to a singular event or activity? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, we can help. Many are conditioned to think that pain is a way of life and that it is normal to deal with pain day-to-day. On the contrary, pain is your body’s way of telling you something is not right. Whether your aches and pains come and go or are chronic and debilitating, if you are seeking pain relief, you will benefit from our services.

Empire Physical Medicine & Pain Management is a premier physical medicine and rehabilitation facility offering physical therapy, sports medicine, medical massage therapy, spinal decompression therapy, acupuncture, electrodiagnosis and nerve block injections. We are able to treat a multitude of conditions and injuries that affect your musculoskeletal system, including back pain, herniated or slipped discs, neck and shoulder pain, knee pain, carpal tunnel, osteoarthritis, sports injuries and much more.

The first step in treating your pain is to figure out what is causing it. Sometimes, even though you are feeling pain in one area, it is being triggered from elsewhere in the body. It is critical to get to the underlying root of your pain which is why we treat the body as a whole. Through a new patient consultation, our medical doctor, Dr. Steven Moalemi, can assess and address your condition so that we can properly and effectively treat it.

Once our doctor determines the cause, a treatment plan will be prescribed which will include a blend of physical manipulations and modalities. Our medical doctor and team of experts then work cohesively to execute your treatment plan and get you on the road to recovery. Our movement experts utilize non-invasive, manual therapies to improve your body’s mobility and restore its function. Our goal is to get you back to living your normal life so that you can go on with your day-to-day activities pain-free. We will train your body to move optimally and educate you with the knowledge and exercises needed to maintain the newer, improved you at home.

While there are many facilities in the city that provide similar services and treatments, we are one of a few practices in Manhattan to offer the DRX-9000. The DRX9000 is a state-of-the-art machine that provides spinal decompression therapy. This type of motorized traction therapy gently stretches the spine in a controlled manner to alleviate the pressure off your discs. The process also allows water and nutrients to flow in to expedite the body’s natural healing process. The procedure itself is comfortable and even relaxing.

Spinal Decompression therapy is used to treat those with neck or back conditions such as herniated discs, compressed discs, bulging or slipped discs and sciatica. Patients see results in as little as a few sessions, although maximum results are achieved after two months. There is no recovery time, so you may complete your treatment without taking any time off of work. It is recommended for those who have had countless efforts in treating their neck or back pain with little or no success. It is also recommended for those who would seeking pain relief without going through surgical means.
