Pain Management

I’ve tried “Physical Therapy” but it hurt.

 

Moving and performing the correct exercises is what the body needs. However, we understand that when you are in pain, it is sometimes hard to move. We DO NOT believe in “no pain, no gain.” Our philosophy is more:

 

“A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.” – William G.T. Shedd

 

Overall, we want to empower you to move without causing you more pain. Give us a chance to help.

What causes pain?
  • • Accident or injury
  • • Medical conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, or cancer
  • • May be without any clear incident

 

“All the body needs is credible evidence of danger to create pain.” – Lorimer Moseley, PhD
