Complete Pain Management
Pain management therapy is used for most patients suffering from chronic pain. It has been shown to be effective without the potential risk of side-effects or addiction inherent in medication. The most common type of therapy is physical therapy, but cognitive therapy and meditation are becoming more popular treatment options as well.
Also known as physiotherapy, physical therapy can relieve pain, increase recovery speed, and restore function to the patient. This treatment can include heat and ice packs, ultrasounds, stretching, strengthening exercises, and low-impact aerobic conditioning. Typically a physical therapist will go through several physical activities with the patient and then recommend they continue them independently at home.
