How Physical Therapy Eases Chronic Aches and Pains

Since medication tends to provide only temporarily relief from chronic aches and pains, you may assume that your only long-term pain relief option is surgery. But procedures to fuse joints or remove pieces of vertebral discs can do more harm than good, not to mention the lengthy recuperation you’d have to endure. That leaves physical therapy as your safe, effective, drug-free, non-invasive answer. Dynamic Physical Therapy can reduce and control your chronic aches and pains by prescribing:

  • Strengthening exercises to help your body support itself more easily
  • Stretching exercises to increase your flexibility
  • Exercises that target specific joints or muscle groups suffering from chronic pain conditions
  • Massage therapy to break up adhesions and trigger points while soothing inflamed tissues
  • Techniques such as TENS or ultrasound therapy to block pain messages and promote healing
  • Heat therapy to loosen tight muscles
  • Cold therapy to reduce swelling and inflammatory pain
