All About The Spine and Sports Health Center + Its Locations
The Spine and Sports Health Center specializes in the non-surgical treatment of spine and joint pain and injury.
“Our philosophy at The Spine and Sports Health Center is that no one should have to live in pain,” said Dr. Alex Visco of The Spine and Sports Health Center. “Our patients come to us from all over, with all types of pain complaints. It is our job to discover the source of the pain and design a targeted plan for pain relief and recovery.”
In addition to its Hoboken office, The Spine and Sports Health Center has two other locations in Hudson County: Jersey City (121 Jersey City, Suite 300) and Bayonne (11 W 25th Street). The facilities assist with and treat issues like sports injuries, persistent pain, spine and joint pain, MVA-related injuries, and more by creating personalized physical therapy plans for each client.
The Spine and Sports Health Center Approach + Services
As a patient at Spine and Sports Health Center, you can expect personalized care tailored to your medical history, injury, or condition. The local professionals at The Spine and Sports Health Center develop personalized, minimally-invasive (non-surgical) treatment plans that depend on each individual’s needs, lifestyle, and goals. From decreased mobility and ongoing pain to an exercise or sports-related injury, physical therapists focus on providing relief and speeding up the recovery of various conditions.
“Whether you’re suffering from knee and shoulder pain, sciatica, chronic neck or back pain, have been in a slip and fall or motor vehicle accident, can’t seem to fully recover from a sports injury, or you have pain that just isn’t going away, our licensed physical therapists and skilled medical staff are here to help,” said Dr. Alex Visco.
Some of the center’s services include interventional pain management, sports medicine, physical therapy and rehabilitation, chiropractic care, and massage therapy. If you’re unsure whether your condition requires medical attention, The Spine and Sports Health Center recommends visiting the practice for a recent painful or uncomfortable injury that’s either hindering usual activities or causing decreased range of motion. This center treats pain or discomfort in the back, neck, shoulder, hip, leg, knee, foot, ankle, hand, wrist, or elbow.
You don’t need to be recently injured to schedule an appointment, as the practice also has physical therapy for back, neck, or joint pain — which are normal effects of aging like rotator cuff tears, spinal conditions such as scoliosis, and cartilage damage.
