Now is the time to get rid of the pain that has been bothering you all year long. Our staff is here to help you get in the right direction with pain management.  

Why Physical Therapy?

There are many different forms of pain management and no one should want to put their health at jeopardy in the efforts to become pain-free.  One form of pain management is to mask the pain with the use of opioids and this, unfortunately, may lead to addiction.   People who are addicted to prescription opioids are forty times more likely to become addicted to heroin.  That is a reason why physical therapy is the healthier option to combat pain.  While opioids reduce the pain by disrupting signals sent to the brain, the use of physical therapy can help treat the pain through movement while helping the patient maintain a quality of life.
