Pain Management

  Pain Management
A unique approach to acute, subacute or chronic pain

Pain Rehabilitation Services offers a unique interdisciplinary model of treatment focused on improving the quality of life and productivity for people impacted by chronic pain.

A blend of medical, physical and behavioral rehabilitation forms the basis of our program. The result is comprehensive and cost-effective treatment for individuals of all ages.

The People We Serve
Pain Rehabilitation Services is dedicated to improving quality of life for patients experiencing:

  • Muscle and nerve pain persisting beyond the normal healing process (usually three months)
  • Pain interfering with psychosocial, physical and/or vocational functioning

Patients benefiting from treatment typically have one or more of the following conditions:

  • Back and neck pain (whiplash)
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Medication excess
  • Myofascial pain/fibromyalgia
  • Neuropathic pain/radiculpathy
  • Somatoform pain disorder
  • Tension headache/migraine headache
  • Upper extremity overuse

A Unique Approach to Pain
Successful outcomes result from treatment that addresses both the psychological and physiological aspects of pain.

Our philosophy facilitates a pathway to effective healing. Patients must be educated to understand their condition and diagnosis before they can effectively be treated. Patients will learn the sources or triggers that perpetuate tension and pain. Our comprehensive treatment modalities include:

  • Diagnostic understanding
  • Medication management
  • Muscle tension biofeedback
  • Pool/aquatic therapy
  • Relaxation/stretch
