The chronic pain of conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia can lead to reduced participation in life and feelings of hopelessness. We have worked to provide effective relief of chronic pain and help patients to be empowered to overcome a life of persistent pain.
Our physical therapy has also been effective to assist many patients who are suffering pain from conditions ranging from arthritis to cancer.
Rehabilitation for patients in pain is designed to relieve pain, promote healing, and restore function and movement. Functional deficits often result from patient avoidance due to pain. Our physical therapists work in conjunction with referring physicians to help patients get past their pain and regain lost strength and mobility.
The ultimate goal is to progress in pain-free increments until function is restored with any avoidance patterns eliminated to prevent re-injury.
