TENAFLY, N.J., Feb. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dr. Howard Liss is the founder and lead physician at Howard Liss, M.D.
A physiatrist is a medical doctor with a specialty in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) and whose expertise covers several disciplines. Dr. Liss is qualified to treat a wide variety of medical disorders and conditions that affect the discs, nerves, muscles, tendons, joints, ligaments, spinal cord, and brain. He understands and values the intricate relationship between physical well-being, physiological wellness, and mental wellness. Therefore, as a physiatrist, Dr. Liss takes a comprehensive approach to improve a patient's acute or chronic pain and disability. When evaluating a patient, Dr. Liss considers diverse pathology, neurology, and rheumatology.
The opening of the new treatment facility in Tenafly allows Dr. Liss to give more patients the opportunity to get successful management of their pain or disability with a focused interest in their overall well-being. "I am thrilled to extend the benefits of physiatry to patients in Tenafly. It is a multidisciplinary approach that considers non-surgical therapies and values superior patient care at every step," says Dr. Howard Liss.
From his offices in Fort Lee and Riverdale, Dr. 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.
The Tenafly office of Howard Liss, M.D. Rehabilitation Institute is equipped to offer services for back and neck pain, hand conditions, orthopedic and sports injuries, balance issues, women's health, workplace injuries and other chronic conditions such as multiple sclerosis and complex regional pain syndrome. Instead of rushing to surgical treatment, Dr. Liss considers a multidisciplinary approach and that uses effective non-surgical treatments such as physical and occupational therapy (including modalities, manual therapy, traction, taping, and an education in body mechanics and self-care), injections, orthotics, and medications.
