We can help chronic pain. Physical Therapy can help chronic pain.
Chronic pain is pain that persists for weeks, months or years. Persistent pain often starts with a minor injury or illness, but instead of the pain getting better as the injury heals, the pain persists.
Effective management of persistent pain requires intervention that help re-wire the nervous system. Physical Therapist help re-learn normal postures and movements that we may have adopted to guard the pain.
Selected pain modulation modalities for pain relief, gentle mobilizations, active exercises or selected manual therapy techniques maybe used.
