Musculoskeletal Pain


Combating muscle and ligament complaints

Muscle and ligament complaints are a leading instigator of chronic disability in the United States, particularly with baby boomers. They can be caused by any number of issues, including injury, osteoarthritis, tendonitis and irritated nerves. Dr. Eric R. Beck is a triple-board-certified physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist who offers effective nonsurgical solutions for muscle and ligament problems, including therapeutic exercise and injection therapy.

These conservative treatment methods can reduce your discomfort and improve and restore function to the affected area of your body. This is your first step toward improving your overall quality of life.

After Dr. Beck conducts a health history and physical exam, which may include electrodiagnostic testing, he will create a customized program designed to decrease your pain and promote your body’s own natural healing abilities. He will also teach you how to keep the problem from coming back and how to avoid reinjury.

Dr. Beck’s therapeutic exercise programs can help you recover from injury, improve strength, balance and coordination and enhance your ability to perform. This is welcome news if you’re a baby boomer who enjoys golfing, jogging, playing tennis or other activities.

Another effective way that Dr. Beck treats muscle and ligament pain is with injection therapy that involves the injection of anti-inflammatory medications in or around the painful sites to decrease inflammation and promote healing. In some cases, using more than one treatment modality greatly improves chances for success; Dr. Beck will recommend the best approach based on your individual needs. If indicated, he will coordinate your care with other specialists, physical therapists or occupational therapists for maximum results.

You’ll feel confident knowing that Dr. Beck has over 20 years of clinical experience. Plus, he is the trusted choice of many area physicians for their patients who need specialized care for conditions that can affect the muscles and ligaments.
