Dr. Larisa Likver is a board-certified physiatrist with over 20 years of medical experience, specifically pain management, both in New York City and internationally. She has been trained in Prolotherapy by the Hackett-Hemwall Foundation, the leading institution for Prolotherapy education and research. For over 35 years, the Hackett-Hemwall foundation has hosted a medical missionary trip to Honduras.
Dr. Likver has advanced her expertise in Prolotherapy by participating in these missions in 2014 and 2015, dedicating her time and service to treat people who are otherwise unable to afford medical care.
She is also a specialist in Neural Prolotherapy. This treatment was developed by New Zealand physician Dr. John Lyftgoft. Dr. Likver participated in some of the few global conferences in Neural Prolotherapy to obtain training from Dr. Lyftogt himself.
