Keith R. Brecher, MD directs the activities of the NeuroHealth Pain Center, specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of patients who suffer from various types of back pain, neuropathic pain, and post-traumatic or post-surgical pain.
The expanded NeuroHealth has in-house diagnostic testing facilities and a fully staffed state-of-the-art Rehabilitation Center. Common pain management strategies include pain-killing medications and complementary therapies (such as exercise and massage). Dr. Brecher and the Pain Center staff perform a variety of pain management procedures on-site, including trigger point injection therapy.
Studies indicate that a patient’s ability to cope emotionally with chronic pain has a profound influence on his or her quality of life. The staff neuro-psychologist at NeuroHealth can help pain sufferers learn self-management skills that may lower their levels of pain and enable them to deal constructively with the stress and depression that often accompany chronic pain.
