                                                         Osteopathic Doctors: Why We Are DifferentDrs Robert & Irene Minkowsky Back Pain Specialists

Drs. Irène & Robert Minkowsky are medical doctors trained in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders, injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system. For the last 30 years they have included osteopathic manual therapy in their approach and specialize in nonsurgical treatment of painful musculoskeletal conditions, spine disorders and sports injuries.

The musculoskeletal system is very complex and includes joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons nerves and blood vessels, all surrounded by fascia. All of these elements must be addressed for successful resolution of a problem.

A thorough comprehensive evaluation precedes an individualized treatment program with emphasis on restoration of musculoskeletal balance, control of pain (principally non pharmacologic) and recovery of function. Success stems from being thorough and methodical in the approach.

Osteopaths focus on the whole person, rather than a collection of independent parts. At the Physicians’ Back Institute, the focus is to promote the body’s self-healing tendency and to try to restore balance and equilibrium in the musculoskeletal system.
