Non-surgical treatment options make Dr. Zaharoff’s approach unique
Dr. Zaharoff’s approach encourages individuals to become active participants in their own health and fitness. Initially, a variety of methods may be used to control a patient’s pain as her team educates the patient about the importance of eliminating stress and strain from the injury in order to enhance recovery and minimize recurrence.
The non-surgical approach available from an experienced Physiatrist (or Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physician) such as Dr. Zaharoff is an aggressive and comprehensive alternative to treat pain and injuries.
