Dr. Joshua Reimer is a Physiatrist specializing in musculoskeletal ultrasound, interventional spine care, and electrodiagnostics.
Dr. Reimer attended an accelerated BS-MD medical program with undergraduate training at Stevens Institute of Technology, and his medical training at New Jersey Medical School, UMDNJ. He was the recipient of the PM&R department award as a graduating medical student. He continued his training with residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) at the prestigious Kessler Institute of Rehabilitation in West Orange, NJ. There, he worked along side leaders of the field treating spinal cord and traumatic brain injured patients and complex neurologic injuries.
His formal training was finalized with fellowship training under mentorship of the renowned Marko Bodor MD, in Napa, CA. The training provided him with extensive exposure to diagnostic and therapeutic ultrasound techniques, allowing for safe and accurate treatment of various conditions without radiation exposure to the patient. In addition, his training incorporated state of the art spine interventions including lumbar and cervical epidurals, facet injections, as well as radiofrequency neurotomy in the treatment of neck and back pain. Dr. Reimer has extensive experience in the use of electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction study in the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome and a full spectrum of neurologic injuries.
Dr. Reimer's treatment approach includes a balance of physical therapy and modalities with targeted injection procedures to manage pain and impairment in an integrative fashion. He is able to diagnose numerous structural problems including rotator cuff and Achilles tendon tears without the need for MRI, particularly useful in those with pacemakers or those who cannot tolerate MRI exams. Dr. Reimer uses ultrasound and fluoroscopy to guide targeted injections of anti-inflammatories, joint lubricant gels, and platelet-based therapies to manage a wide variety of conditions with minimal discomfort to the patient.
Dr. Reimer is Board Certified in 3 specialities: Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Sports Medicine, and Pain Medicine.
