Dr. Perry Herman is a board-certified physiatrist, also known as a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) physician. He specializes in nonsurgical treatment of neck and back pain, and musculoskeletal injuries resulting from a sports, auto or slip-and-fall accident.
Patients experiencing pain, weakness or loss of function – preventing an active or independent lifestyle, often find help and hope, as wellness is restored. Dr. Herman’s focus is to strengthen what a patient can do, as he helps to improve and/or adapt what a patient finds challenging. This is accomplished with his unique holistic approach to acute and chronic pain. Integrating traditional, scientifically-proven pain methodologies with a whole-person strategy has been especially beneficial in hard-to-diagnose or difficult to resolve conditions, eliminating the need for invasive surgeries or the debilitating side-effects of prescription medication. In addition, by providing lifestyle counseling, Dr. Herman offers new and exciting strategies to slow down the aging process, encourage stress reduction and maintain optimal health.
Dr. Herman received his Bachelor of Arts from Indiana University, Bloomington, IN. He attended medical school and received his M.D. from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, New Brunswick, NJ.
