Bio and Recent Accomplishments
Dr. Larisa Likver is a board-certified physiatrist who has over 20 years of medical experience, specifically pain management, both in New York City and internationally. She has been trained in Prolotherapy by the Hackett-Hemwall Foundation, the leading institution for Prolotherapy education and research, named after the two pioneers who invented and developed this technique in the United States. For over 35 years, the Hackett-Hemwall foundation has hosted a medical missionary trip to Honduras.
Dr. Larisa Likver has advanced her expertise in Prolotherapy by participating in these missions in 2014 and 2015, dedicating her time and service to treat people who are otherwise unable to afford medical care.
Dr. Larisa Likver is also trained in Neural Prolotherapy. This treatment was created by the New Zealand physician Dr. John Lyftgoft. Dr. Likver attended some of the few global conferences in Neural Prolotherapy to obtain training from Dr. Lyftogt himself. In 2013, Dr. Likver participated in the most comprehensive global conference for Neural Prolotherapy held in Guadelajara, Mexico.
Dr. Likver is recognized as a Pioneer by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography. Certification in Musculoskeletal Sonography was first introduced to medical professionals in 2012. Dr. Likver successfully passed this new exam and was among the first to be awarded a Pioneer Certificate. She has nearly 10 years of experience using ultrasound guidance to dramatically improve the outcome of pain-alleviating procedures (Platelets-Rich Plasma or PRP treatment, Prolotherapy, joint visco-supplementation, etc.) through direct and targeted injections. By visualizing the pain-affected area in real-time, Dr. Likver delivers medication precisely where it needs to go.

The answers to many of our medical problems can be found within our own body and our natural environment. Our body has the unique and remarkable ability to heal itself when nurtured with proper medical care. A doctor’s job is to assist the natural healing process by combining the wisdom of century-old techniques with cutting-edge medical advances. At our office, we go beyond simply diagnosing a patient’s particular injury or illness and treating it. To achieve the best possible outcome for our patients we take a holistic approach with an emphasis on respect, communication and results. After identifying the patient’s needs, we create and implement an individualized plan of care that best suits the patient and yields the optimal result.
