Do I Need Therapy for Chronic Pain?
Physical therapy can help you reduce reliance on medications or avoid surgery if you have conditions such as:
- Nerve damage (neuropathy)
What to Expect
Your physical therapist will gradually help your body adapt to gentle physical activity that you may have stopped due to discomfort. Together, you’ll retrain your brain, nerves, and muscles to allow movement with less pain. Trust your therapist to understand your limits and work at your pace.
Treatments & Services
Depending on your needs, your care plan may include:
- Gentle stretches and exercises
- Soft-tissue mobilization to allow more muscle movement
- Therapeutic ultrasound that provides deep heat to injured tissue
Over time, chronic pain therapy can increase your ability to take part in activities for work and fun. Your mood may improve as well. Follow the advice your therapist provides for self-care at home to maintain your progress over the long term.
