Rapid Pain Relief
Rapid Pain Relief Program: In many conditions seen in Physical Therapy, pain needs to be treated first to get it under control so that the therapist and patient can get on with the healing process. Our Rapid Pain Relief Program is designed to do just that. In addition to the prescription or over-the-counter pain relievers that you may already be taking, your therapist has a number of treatment options to kill the pain fast. The most valuable tools we have at our disposal are skilled hands-on therapies such as gentle joint or soft tissue mobilization and gentle range of motion exercises (carefully selected and taught). Other options to consider are heat and cold (which you will be instructed to use at home) ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and iontophoresis (using low voltage electrical stimulation to “drive” an anti-inflammatory to the inflamed tissue). Bracing or compression wrapping may be part of the program. It all depends on your condition. Your therapist will select the proper approaches customized for your condition to get you out of pain and moving again.
