Rehabilitation physicians treat a wide range of problems from sore shoulders to back pain. Their goal is to decrease pain and enhance performance without surgery. Rehabilitation physicians take the time needed to accurately pinpoint the source of an ailment. They then design a treatment plan that can be carried out by the patients themselves or with the help of the rehabilitation physician’s medical team. This medical team might include other physicians and health professionals, such as neurologists, orthopedic surgeons, and physical therapists. By providing an appropriate treatment plan, rehabilitation physicians help patients stay as active as possible at any age. Their broad medical expertise allows them to treat disabling conditions throughout a person’s lifetime.
Dr. Chen has a special interest in treating back and neck pain and provides non-surgical care for his patients. He is experienced in spinal procedures including epidurals, facet injections, and radiofrequency ablation. He also has expertise in botox injections for migraines and is certified in medical acupuncture.
