Specialties, Conditions, and Procedures
Neurosurgeons from Atlantic NeuroSurgical Specialists (ANS) focus on increasing function and improving quality of life by evaluating spine disorders and treating them with innovative non-surgical and surgical treatments. ANS specializes in innovative treatments that don’t necessarily involve surgery. And when they do – and it’s possible – we use pioneering minimally invasive treatment strategies.
Altair Health’s physical therapists create comprehensive, individualized exercise programs that help improve your function and quality of life. Whether you have a sports- or work-related injury, acute and chronic back or neck pain … orthopedic condition, neurological disorder, arthritis or are recovering from surgery, we use a holistic approach. We focus on your abilities and needs, not just on your particular diagnosis. And we design a complete treatment plan – not just a standalone therapy – that integrates yoga, exercise, acupuncture and more as appropriate.
Pain management specialists from Altair Health, New Jersey Pain Consultants and North Jersey Interventional Spine Center are advancing pain management treatments for acute and chronic pain conditions. Using an interdisciplinary approach, board-certified pain management physicians, clinical psychologists, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, x-ray technicians and medical assistants work together to formulate and implement a comprehensive treatment plan that reduces pain and improves function.
Physiatrists – also known as Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) physicians – treat a wide variety of medical conditions affecting the spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons and brain. These medical doctors collaborate with our physical therapists to evaluate, diagnose and manage patients’ medical issues, optimizing patient outcomes throughout the continuum of care.
Acupuncture, a practice used in traditional Chinese medicine, helps ease chronic pain – including lower back and neck pain. Altair Health practitioners insert thin needles into specific acupuncture points where blood flow can be stimulated, triggering the body’s natural painkillers. Altair Health acupuncturists collaborate with physical therapists and other wellness professionals to reduce pain and improve function as appropriate.
At Altair Health, wellness is incorporated into all treatment plans. With the goal of restoring your body and spirit, our united team of neurosurgeons and physiatrists – along with specialists in physical therapy, acupuncture, therapeutic yoga and massage therapy – use medical and holistic approaches to get you back to your best.
