Laurie L. Glasser, MD, RMSK

Board-Certified Specialties: Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Sports Medicine, Musculoskeletal Ultrasound, Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine

 

Dr. Glasser treats patients with musculoskeletal and sports-related injuries. She has considerable interest and expertise in providing non-surgical musculoskeletal orthopaedic care, especially in the spine and sports injuries. She also has a wealth of experience treating occupational/work-related injuries, as well as sports injuries.

Her interests include acute injuries and overuse injuries among athletes of all levels, including acute and chronic tendon and ligament injuries.

She is also trained in musculoskeletal ultrasound which assists in diagnosis and management of injuries. Ultrasound-guided injections can also improve accuracy and decrease pain.

Dr. Glasser is committed to the whole patient and wants to optimize a safe and quick return to sport and activities.

After Dr. Glasser performs a careful history and physical examination, she will obtain appropriate diagnostic tests such as x-rays, MRI, and CT scans. When needed she will perform muscle and nerve studies called EMG/NCV (electromyography). She takes a conservative approach to treatment, with a strong emphasis on individual exercise programs for specific problems and injury prevention programs.
