Chronic pain can be mild or excruciating, episodic or continuous, merely inconvenient, or totally incapacitating. With chronic pain, signals of pain remain active in the nervous system for months, or even years after the initial injury has resolved. This can take both a physical and emotional toll on a person. Poor nutrition, emotional stress, and other lifestyle factors may play a role in the development of chronic pain. If you have chronic pain, you are not alone; one in four Americans suffers from this condition.
Our Physical Therapists have attained additional education and specific training in different chronic pain treatment techniques. We can often make significant progress in the reduction of complex chronic pain with patients who haven’t responded to typical physical therapy regimes elsewhere because we apply a whole-body approach and an understanding of the nervous system involvement in pain perception.
