About Dr. Polesin

Alena Polesin, MD, is a board-certified Physiatrist (Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physician), and also specializes in sport and pain medicine. She is proud to serve patients at New Jersey Pain Management, with offices in Morristown, Bridgewater, and Rockaway.

After graduating from University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, she completed her residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at New York Presbyterian – The University Hospital of Columbia & Cornell, serving as a Chief Resident.  After extensive post residency training and clinical experiences in musculoskeletal medicine, she became Director of Spine, Sports & Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation at New Jersey Pain Management -The Spine, Sports and Pain Medicine Center. She is currently on staff at the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine – Morristown Medical Center, Atlantic Health System.  Dr. Polesin is Board Certified in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, Sports Medicine and Pain Medicine. Her most recent Clinical Awards include New Jersey’s Top Doctors 2017-2018 and Patient’s Choice Award.

Dr. Polesin specializes in helping individuals recover from acute and chronic injuries. Her expertise in non-operative spine and orthopedic medicine, combined with large clinical acumen of neurologic and rheumatologic conditions and board certifications in Pain and Sports Medicine set her aside from many narrowly-trained physicians as a comprehensive specialist in all aspects of conservative neuromusculoskeletal care. She is an expert in image-guided diagnostic and therapeutic injections utilizing ultrasound and fluoroscopy, and is fully proficient in electrodiagnosis. Her clinical approach is focused on both: immediate effective pain reduction, as well as an assessment of the whole musculoskeletal system to prevent further injury and slow down effects of wear and tear associated with aging.

Dr. Polesin recently developed a growing interest in Regenerative Medicine approaches, a new and exciting field with emphasis on a more natural recovery from many chronic and difficult-to-treat conditions. Dr. Polesin strongly believes that patient education, teamwork between healthcare practitioners, and utilization of both traditional and alternative treatments enables significantly better outcomes and ensures the best possible functional recovery.
