Traditional  medical sciences include all the medical specialties that are familiar to most: internal medicine, cardiology, rheumatology, surgery, etc.  The core of Dr. Herbert's original training is the specialty of physiatry, or non-surgical physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R).  One of the broadest reaching areas of medicine, PM&R maximizes a human being’s ability to function - the capacity to live one’s life to the fullest, physically and mentally.

People are often seen for a wide range of obstacles to optimal functioning such as pain, joint pain, neck and back pain, migraines, arthritis, osteoporosis, sports and spine injuries, and more. Physiatrists help create a personalized recovery program to improve the quality of life.  They supervise a therapeutic team that may include referrals to:

  • physical and occupational therapy

  • speech and language therapy

  • special testing, including nerve conduction studies, MRIs, musculoskeletal ultrasound

  • supervised medical exercise therapy

  • nutritional evaluation

  • psychological counseling or mind-body training

  • surgery, if needed.

 

Dr. Herbert is a member of the Osteopathic Cranial Academy and has extensive experience in cranial osteopathy, the parent of CranioSacral Therapy
