The Norman Marcus Pain Institute can eliminate your pain and end your suffering

COVID-19 Response

Our office remains dedicated to keeping patients and staff healthy and safe, especially throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We are still accepting new patients at this time. Understanding the challenges that everyone may face in regards to travel and uncertainty about coming into a doctor’s office, we want to reassure patients that we have strict protocols to ensure safety, including:
• Pre-screening all patients for COVID-19 symptoms before they come to the office
• Screening all staff, patients, and care partners upon arrival for symptoms, including temperature checks
• Requiring that all visitors and staff wear face masks or coverings
• Thorough and frequent cleaning and disinfecting of all parts of the office and examination rooms

If you have any clarifying questions or more specific concerns, feel free to give us a call at 212-532-7999.

There is Help for You

You have persistent pain, probably in your back, neck, or shoulders. It may radiate to your arms or legs. You may be looking for treatment for the first time, or want to try a different treatment than the one you now receive. Can you imagine that your pain is treatable with simple methods? Most back pain and neck pain is caused by soft tissue such as muscles and tendons. This is confusing because you may have been told your pain is from your spine, discs, or nerves. The problem is most people as they get older have signs of wear and tear on their x-rays and MRIs, but these studies do not clearly evaluate painful muscles. You can have a herniated disc, as up to 40% of adults do, or a degenerated disc, as up to 70% of adults do, without any pain. Your pain may actually be completely from muscles.

Our patients were often told they needed surgery or already had surgery without relief. Some had unsuccessful treatment with spinal cord stimulators, nerve blocks, and epidural steroids. Many of these patients were relieved of most of their pain. Our results for patients who were followed for 16 months have been published in Pain Medicine in 2013.

Our evaluation incorporates an instrument that electrically identifies painful muscles. Our treatment protocols can eliminate your pain without the need for additional treatment.
