Treatments at Princeton Brain, Spine & Sports Medicine

At PBBSM, our first priority is to educate you about injury management and prevention so you can make proactive, wise choices about joint and musculoskeletal health. Whenever possible, we use conservative treatments like rest, bracing, exercise, physical therapy, injections or medications to treat your condition. In some cases, injuries require surgical intervention if non-operative options fail to deliver optimal rehab and pain relief. If this occurs, Dr. Balar will refer you to an experienced orthopedic surgeon and will remain available for further questions or consultation, as needed.

PBSSM conservative treatments include, but are not limited to:
