Physical therapy for pain management
Pain is very complex, but recent research has shed light on why some people have chronic, widespread pain that can last for months or even years. The important thing to know is that tissues heal, pain resolves, and physical therapy is an effective, safe way to treat it.
The physical therapists at Edward-Elmhurst Health are experts in the non-surgical, non-medical treatment of chronic pain. They are well-versed in the latest treatments in pain science including: therapeutic neuroscience education, hands-on physical therapy, graded activity and aerobic exercise, habituation and specific exercises to help reduce pain and prevent future problems.
