Rehabilitation & Improved Function

Physical therapy and rehabilitation is essential to helping patients take control of their pain. Our physical therapist, Roger Pack, PT, OCS, is board certified in orthopedic physical therapy and has over 20 years of experience in treating chronically painful conditions. Treatments include pain control modalities, manual therapy, soft tissue mobilization, and exercise. Cognitive behavioral principles are used to help patients learn to more effectively deal with their pain. A combination of office visits, patient education, and home-based exercise programs is used to help patients learn to care for their condition on their own, helping to minimize the cost of care for patients and payors without sacrificing quality.
UV Pain Management
Some of the most common physical therapy treatments include:

Exercise
Exercise done the right way is one of the most effective tools a physical therapist has to offer, but it has to be done in a way that does not increase your pain. Our physical therapist has over 20 years experience helping people with pain perform exercise without making things worse.

Pain Relieving Modalities
Sometimes you are in too much pain to exercise without some help.  We offer a full range of techniques to relieve your pain including massage, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation, etc.

Manual Therapy
Gentle techniques are also utilized to help your joints move more freely with less pain. Whenever possible, you will be taught how to do similar techniques at home.

Soft Tissue Mobilization
Soft tissue mobilization can be used to restart the natural healing process in muscles, ligaments, and tendons. It is very effective for tendonitis, myofascial pain and foot pain.

Functional Restoration
Modern medicine has limits; it cannot cure everything for everyone. That means some patients need to learn how to live with and manage their pain. The Functional Restoration Program (FRP) employs a team of doctors, physical therapists, and psychologists to help you learn how to take control of your pain so it does not control you.
