Dr. Alena Polesin is a Physiatrist (Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physician) at New Jersey Pain Management group practice in Morristown, NJ, specializing in helping individuals recover from an acute or chronic injury. Her extensive experiences in non-operative spine and orthopedic medicine, combined with large clinical acumen of neurologic and rheumatologic conditions and board certifications in Pain and Sports Medicine set her aside from many narrowly-trained physicians as a comprehensive specialist in all aspects of conservative Neuro-Musculo-Skeletal care. She is an expert in image-guided diagnostic and therapeutic injections utilizing ultrasound and fluoroscopy, and is fully proficient in electrodiagnosis. Her clinical approach is focused on both: immediate effective pain reduction, as well as assessment of the whole musculoskeletal system to prevent further injury and slow down effects of wear and tear associated with aging.
Dr. Polesin recently developed a growing interest in Regenerative Medicine approaches, a new and exciting field with emphasis on a more natural recovery from many chronic and difficult-to-treat conditions. Dr. Polesin strongly believes that patient education, teamwork between healthcare practitioners, and utilization of both traditional and alternative treatments enables significantly better outcomes and ensures the best possible functional recovery.
