What Is Disability Care?

Disability care, within the medical community, refers to the various types of services that people with disabilities may need on a short-term or long-term basis. Along with assistive technology and medical devices, physical therapy, training to promote independent living, pain management and other modes of treatment, the goal of disability care is to promote a healthy, manageable, pain-free life.

Dr. Ilana Etelzon is a board certified specialist who provides life-altering treatments when you or a loved one have a temporary or permanent disability. Dr. Etelzon is fellowship-trained in Musculoskeletal Medicine and Interventional Pain Management. She understands that many disabilities lead to pain. To address acute or chronic pain issues, she leverages the most up-to-date medical technology to find and treat the source of your pain and provide the most appropriate treatments in her New York City office.

What a Personal Injury Case?

A personal injury case occurs when you’re harmed in some way by the actions or inactions of another person. In other words, it’s an injury that’s not your fault. Many times, personal injury results in temporary or permanent disability. And many of these disabilities result in acute or chronic pain.

Acute pain is temporary, lasting anywhere from three to six months. It’s the result of damage to soft tissues, like a sprained knee. Chronic pain, on the other hand, lasts longer than 12 weeks and usually is the result of damaged or inflamed nerves, such as pinched spinal nerves. Personal injury disabilities can lead to acute and chronic pain. Common causes include:

  • Sports injuries
  • Automobile accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Workplace accidents
  • Animal bites
  • Slips and falls

How Does Dr. Etelzon Provide Personal Injury Care?

Before recommending any treatment, Dr. Etelzon does an extensive array of diagnostic tests to determine the source of your pain. It’s the underlying cause that creates the painful side effects you’re experiencing. With an accurate diagnosis, your pain management specialist offers effective treatments for long-term pain relief. The most common joints affected by personal injuries include your:

  • Knees
  • Upper, middle and lower spine
  • Shoulders
  • Neck

  • Dear Doctor Etelzon, Thank you again. I am starting to feel more like myself again...I couldn't say the problem is totally gone, but a big weight has been lifted...Today...I decided to go and do my nails which I did not do for a long time after the incident. I also asked my daughter if we could go to the park. These are things I normally enjoy but forgot about them for a few months now.
