Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation


Dr. Kapteyn is an interventional physiatrist specializing in management of painful conditions of tendons, joints, muscles, nerves, and all sports and spinal related conditions. Kapteyn utilizes multi-disciplinary, non-operative techniques, or micro-invasive operative management of these conditions to decrease pain and improve function. A conservative, balanced approach is the hallmark of his care.

A specialist in both diagnostic ultrasound and image guided ultrasound, Kapteyn performs micro-invasive carpal tunnel releases. Ultrasound guided tenotomy can be performed for chronic tendon pain. When appropriate, regenerative treatments are considered, including stem cell injections, and prolotherapy, and dry needling. He utilizes EMG for neuromuscular diagnosis, and also performs Botox for limb spasticity as well as migraine headaches. He also performs neurolytic injections for pain or spasticity, including phenol. Peripheral nerve stimulation is utilized for peripheral nerve injury or refractory joint pain. For the spine, epidural injections, radiofrequency ablation, spinal cord stimulator, and pain pumps may be options for treatment.
