Care Philosophy

Joints, muscles and the skeleton all work in concert to help us move. They are not individual components but rather a complex, integrated machine. Just as the integration is critical to our mobility, so can it be the cause of pain. By knowing how the body functions and how it is all connected we can eliminate pain and get you back to doing the things you love.

Biography

Dr Halina Snowball is a Stanford University trained Physiatrist and Acupuncturist. She has won consecutive Top Doctor Awards in the tri state area for the past several years and is a Castle Connolly award winner (click here for more information). Her field is Muscular/Skeletal medicine - the treatment of pain management and mobility. Her philosophy is that the body is an integrated machine of moving parts.

Her approach to the use of medical treatments (injections, PRP, EPAT) in conjunction with non traditional medical practices such as yoga, acupuncture, sports massage, etc creates the foundation of her practice and leads to long term healing for her patients.

I have suffered from debilitating back pain for nearly 10 years. I have seen every expert there is. Dr. Snowball's advice and specialist recommendations have been the only ones to date that have yielded measurable relief!! She does talk quickly, but spends lots of time with me. She has a unique approach to body mechanics that are logical and sound. Some of the procedures, like the hyaluronic acid, were unfamiliar to me but helped my knee 100% and I am a skeptic!

Very good doctor, kind and empathetic, also. I would not hesitate to recommend her. I'm glad that I found her.

Dr. Snowball is a caring compassionate doctor. She help me get back on my feet and stay there. She is one of the smartest doctors I've ever been to. Dr Snowball always has an answer for a problem she never tells you she can't or there is nothing to help. I would recommend dr. Snowball to everybody I know.

Dr. Snowball says...

We treat pain and mobility issues in the joints, muscles and nerves. Specifically, we treat: neck pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain (golf/tennis anyone?), back pain, wrist and hand pain, leg/knee/ankle and foot pain (plantar fasciitis), and even migraines and TMJ. The range of ailments we treat is large, but fundamental medical properties that involve the connectivity between muscles, joints and the skeleton are similar across the body and enable us to address many diverse issues.
