Spine and joint pain care is close to home

You don't have to go far to see someone about that nagging shoulder, back, knee, hip or any kind of joint or spine pain. And now it's the same for brain or nervous systems injuries and neurological disease.

Gundersen Moundview Hospital and Clinics offers Gundersen Health System specialty care in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) and Neurology in Adams-Friendship.

Anna Batterson, DO, and Natalie Pomranke, PA-C, Gundersen PM&R, offer specialized care for patients with pain that might include:

  • Arthritis or joint pain
  • Bursa pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Muscle and soft tissue pain
  • Radiculopathy or nerve pain ("sciatica")
  • Tendon pain

"We can diagnose the source of pain and offer nonsurgical treatment recommendations for relief or refer patients to other specialists for more advanced treatment, if needed," Dr. Batterson says.

Kara Tower, DO, Gundersen Neurology, works closely with PM&R, Neurosurgery and other departments to ensure you receive the most effective treatments for:

  • Epilepsy and seizure disorders
  • Parkinson's disease, tremor and peripheral neuropathy
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Headaches and migraines

"Many headaches can be managed by your primary care provider, but some require a team approach," Dr. Tower says. “We can determine what type of headache you have and identify treatment options suited to your needs, while reducing the impact on your quality of life."
