Chronic Pain Relief
Have you been suffering from a persistent, long term pain that’s stopping you from being able to get through your day? If so, you can find relief from physical therapy treatments.
Pain is a necessary reaction our bodies have that tell us when something is wrong, and it should be respected. If you accidentally touch a hot stove surface, your immediate reaction will be to pull your hand away because of the pain you felt in your hand when it came in contact with the stove.
However, pain does not always work in the traditional way. Sometimes pain is due to an underlying condition that you have no control over and can linger for days, weeks, or even months. When pain persists for three months or longer, it is referred to as “chronic pain.”
Physical Therapy Can Help Manage Chronic Pain
If you have been suffering from chronic pain and you are seeking relief, contact Phoenix Physical Therapy & Wellness Center in Garner NC to schedule a Recovery Mapping session with our physical therapist.
How can I relieve my chronic pain?
Many people assume that physical therapy is only used for post-surgical procedures, but this is not true. Physical Therapy can also be used to treat a variety of conditions, including chronic pain. It is true that physical therapy can help decrease scar tissue and shorten the time spent recovering after surgery, but one of the main goals of physical therapy is pain relief – which can be applied to any source of pain, whether it is post-operative or not.
If you are interested in chronic pain relief through physical therapy, contact Phoenix Physical Therapy & Wellness today. Any of our dedicated physical therapists would be happy to meet with you and get you started on the right track toward long-lasting pain relief.
