Whether you're an athlete or “normal everyday person,” Dr. Courseault takes great pride in helping people recover from injuries that do not require surgery. Through his experiences as an athletic trainer, personal trainer, Associate Chief Resident in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Fellow in Sports Medicine, he has learned many ways to evaluate and treat patients using conservative measures. He will take the time to learn more about the cause of your injury and examine your individual biomechanics that may be contributing to your discomfort. Using non-operative treatments, such as exercise and therapy recommendations, trigger point injections, regenerative medicine (PRP, prolotherapy, tenotomy, autologous blood), nerve blocks, and non-addicting medications, he aims to reduce your pain so you can get back to your sport, exercise regimen, or livelihood.

If you have pain, numbness, tingling or weakness of your neck, back or joints, Dr. Courseault will be happy to help you identify the cause of the problem and work with you to develop a treatment plan that fits your lifestyle and goals.

Dr. Courseault does extensive work with Hypermobiliy and Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes patients. Dr. Courseault is an expert in treating myofascial pain and injuries and appreciates the value of using ultrasound to view muscle, tendon and ligament pain. He also can view joint subluxations in real-time, and use ultrasonography to guide precise injections. To learn more about the clinic and request an appointment, visit the website.
