Meet Dr. Ben-Meir
As a previous Division 1 college football player of the Texas State University in San Marcos, TX, Dr. Ben-Meir has first-hand experience with sports injuries he’s currently treating. After completing his Bachelor’s education, Dr. Ben-Meir attained his osteopathic medicine doctor from Touro University California in Vallejo, CA.
He later completed fellowship training in interventional spine and sports medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, located in Manhattan, NY. The blend of hands-on experience and a high level of training gives Dr. Ben-Meir exceptional knowledge and expertise to treat all forms of sports-related injuries, whether acute or chronic. In case you have any queries or concerns about Dr. Ben-Meir, reach out to him at any time- he’s always available to respond.
As a board-certified physical medicine and rehabilitation physician, Dr. Ben-Meir focuses on treating sports-related injuries for patients of all ages and levels of experience, ranging from college weekend warriors to competitive athletes. At Downtown Pain Management, he offers personalized pain management care for other chronic conditions such as arthritis.
Some of the most common pain disorders treated by Dr. Ben-Meir include back pain, cancer pain, pelvic pain, neck pain, post-surgical pain, joint pain, pain from acute trauma like an auto accident or sports injury, pinched nerves (sciatica), complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), and nerve pain, including spinal cord injuries and neuropathy. At times, chronic pain develops by itself without any identifiable cause (chronic pain syndrome). In such cases, it might be associated with debilitating conditions like a stroke and fibromyalgia.
Dr. Ben-Meir carefully assesses your state and develops a customized pain management plan designed to meet your unique needs. To ensure patients enjoy long-term pain relief, some of the interventional pain management treatments he uses include, but are not limited to:
- Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP)
- Genicular nerve blocks
- Epidural steroid injections and nerve blocks
- Radiofrequency ablation
- Facet joint injections
- Trigger point injections
- Selected nerve root injections
Dr. Ben-Meir considers every option available for managing your pain, including alternative and integrative therapies such as acupuncture, chiropractic care, yoga, and medical marijuana. Medication and physical therapy are also vital in pain management. If your chronic pain persists despite these treatments, your provider might recommend a surgically implanted spinal cord stimulator. Schedule a consultation to determine what treatment suits you best.
