The benefits of physical therapy when it comes to healing and rehabilitation are undeniable. But chronic pain (lasting six months or longer) poses a formidable obstacle, and it’s one that our Rockville Centre pain management addresses head on. It is only through the control and mitigation of these problems that you can get your life back on course from the difficulties that are so closely associated with pain.
Among the typical areas of pain that affect people are headaches, joint, the effects of an injury, backaches, tendinitis, sinus, carpal tunnel syndrome, and the type that is localized to areas such as the shoulders, pelvis, or neck. As one of those dealing with it, you may take some comfort in the fact that you are not alone. Approximately 100 million Americans have chronic pain. The degree of pain can vary from minimal to severe. It may be continual, or intermittent. Chronic pain can also develop due to arthritis, cancer treatments, fibromyalgia, or the flare up of an old injury. What is less important than the source of the pain is finding an efficient way to get it under control. That is where our Rockville Centre pain management comes in. It may be tempting to depend on medication to achieve the desired results, and sometimes drugs are necessary. But medication can lose its effectiveness from overuse and side-effects can pose complications that make the situation worse. Nevertheless, both steroidal and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicine has a role to play, as does physical therapy, osteopathic manipulative therapy, acupuncture, trigger points injections, and, of course, physical therapy. Our Rockville Centre pain management will be different for each person. You are an individual and we treat you as such.
Don’t let chronic pain lead to physical and emotional detriments in your life. You can count on us. Pick up your phone right now and schedule an appointment to come in.
