Path to a Pain-Free Lifestyle

Path to a Pain-Free LifestylePain Alleviation Journey - How to Begin

1. Schedule an Evaluation Appointment
The initial examination and therapy session lasts one hour. Each succeeding therapy session normally lasts between 45-60 minutes depending on the number of pain areas involved. It is important to understand that healing is a biological process which takes time. The duration of the total therapeutic program depends on:

  • How much damage has been done
  • Length of time the condition has existed
  • How rapidly your body heals
  • State of your general health
  • Stress factors influencing your life

Your therapist will recommend a course of treatment based on the evaluation and your feedback.

2. Review the Therapeutic Options
As a rule, neuromuscular and Class IV laser therapies in combination clear the way for rapid results. Many patients following this course of treatment realize immediate pain relief after their first Class IV laser session.

With Physical Therapy patients have access to a host of theraputic options and receive an assessment by a licensed PT. After the evaluation, a custom plan is crafted to address your specific rehabilitation needs.

Patients who have pain associated with chronic disease, major physical distress or multiple areas of treatment to address, may consider alternative options or a suppliment to PT.  That's why we designed the therapeutic choices within our Circle of Care. "The Works" gives the therapist free reign to utilize modalities in the  volume and combination to efficiently reduce discomfort and improve movement.

3. Follow Through on Your Therapy Plan
Make your course of treatment a priority. Your quality of life and how you interact with others is reliant on how you feel. When you are out of balance it impacts your performance and how you deal with friends and family. Why suffer needlessly?

Additional Tools of the Trade
Other common methods utilized to address inflammation and pain relief include:

Pain Alleviation - How to BeginElectrical Stimulation (E-stem) - uses an electrical current to cause a single muscle or a group of muscles to contract. By placing electrodes on the skin in various locations the targeted muscle or group of muscles receive adjustable and intermittent electrical stimulation. Along with increased muscle strength, the contraction of the muscle also promotes blood supply to the area to assist in healing.

Application of Moist Heat and Ice Therapies - Heat and cold may be applied separately to either relax an area or reduce swelling. Application of these two methods alternately is called a Contrast Bath, which delivers the benefits of both (heat/cold) and improves blood flow.

Kinesio Taping-Involves taping over and around muscles and joints to increase circulation to the injured area, as well as lymphatic drainage. This method reduces swelling, bruising and pressure on sensitive pain receptors. Learn more

Ultrasound - Ultrasound therapy uses high-energy sound waves (those above the range we hear) to help ease painful joints and muscles. Ultrasound treatment is done by a therapist who guides the waves into the body from the head of an ultrasound machine.

Topical Creams - A variety of options for topical treatments exist to aid in pain relief.
