DR. BETH AARONSON, a physiatrist and rehabilitation medicine doctor, takes a holistic approach to managing pain, injury or loss of function. “I do traditional things, like injections and prescribing medications,” she says, “but try to be more comprehensive in looking at my patients’ needs.” Patients come to her with problems ranging from back pain and sports injuries to strokes and spinal cord injuries. “One of my priorities is teaching self-help techniques,” she says, noting that she demonstrates yoga poses, stretches and strengthening exercises for her patients.
Chief of Danbury Hospital’s Department of Physiatry and medical director of the Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit, Dr. Aaronson has advanced training in medical acupuncture. Her areas of interest and expertise include neurological and cancer rehabilitation, lymphedema, integrative medicine and medical acupuncture. She provides nonsurgical, conservative management of acute and chronic pain of the neck, back and joints. “My goal,” she says, “is to help each patient find the most effective techniques to reduce pain and restore function.”
