Pain Therapy Q & A

What is pain therapy?

Pain therapy, also known as physical rehabilitation, is a branch of orthopedic medicine used to treat pain, ease inflammation, and encourage circulation. Pain therapy also works to promote range of motion and a happy, healthy quality of life.

If you’re suffering from the aftermath of a sports-related injury or automobile accident, and conservative treatments such as ice, rest, and over-the-counter painkillers don’t provide significant relief, pain therapy is worth considering.

Are there different types of pain therapy?

Proactive Medical Center offers several types of pain therapy, including:

Spinal rehabilitation

If you have weak muscles or you regularly experience acute or chronic back pain, you might benefit from spinal rehabilitation. Spinal rehabilitation works to improve muscular balance, endurance, and flexibility. It also limits pain and maximizes function.

Neuromuscular reeducation

Neuromuscular reeducation is similar to spinal rehabilitation. It uses therapeutic exercise training to increase strength, endurance, and your range of motion. This type of pain therapy is particularly beneficial for athletes and other active individuals. 

Percussion therapy

Percussion therapy uses a handheld device to jolt muscles and other areas of the body with gentle pulses of pressure. These jolts ease muscle tightness, encourage circulation, and promote your body’s natural healing process.

3D vibration acceleration training

3D vibration acceleration training is similar to percussion therapy but on a larger scale. During this type of pain therapy, your provider exposes your body to a series of intense vibrations. Your body responds by performing reflexive muscle actions. These actions improve circulation, muscle strength, and overall flexibility.

Massage therapy

Massage therapy involves manipulating the soft tissues throughout your body. To do this, your provider uses massage techniques that apply force and pressure with his hands and forearms. Massage therapy is relaxing, and also proven to ease inflammation and promote healing.

What type of pain therapy is right for me?

Only a qualified pain management specialist like those at Proactive Medical Center can determine the type of pain therapy you’ll benefit from the most. 

Following a physical exam, review of your medical history, and discussion of your goals for treatment, your provider develops a custom pain therapy plan that aligns with your individual needs. This might include a series of appointments, using one pain therapy technique or a combination.
