If you experience muscle spasms, difficulty healing pulled muscles or tendons, pain and swelling, laser therapy could be for you! We use non-thermal light photons on targeted areas to promote growth of tissues in chronic pain areas for enhanced healing. Laser therapy is a non-invasive treatment for medical conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, and more.
Shock Wave Therapy
Shock wave therapy may sound intimidating but it is emerging as a good treatment option for individuals with tendon pain. This procedure involves applying electromagnetic pulses that deliver shock waves through the body to engage the muscles and tendons. It is not painful and it can be very effective for a variety of conditions.
Cryotherapy is the process of using freezing temperatures applied to pain to reduce swelling and inflammation. It is one of the most commonly used treatment interventions because it is highly effective. We offer cryotherapy all the time for patients in need of reducing sports injuries such as runner’s knee or a hip replacement!
One of our favorite ways to send patients home from a pain therapy visit is with taping! Kinesio taping is used widely for joint pain because the stretching of the tape helps to widen the space in the joint, thus reducing irritation. Next time you are in for your appointment, ask about going home taped!
One of our tools, the guided injection, is an incredible resources for identifying the source for pain. By using an ultrasound-guided injection, we are able to visualize the needle as it enters the body and insure that medications administered are in the intended site because we can see the inflammation. These injections are helpful for diagnosis and reduction in pain.
At Pain Therapy Clinic we love pool therapy! What you can do in the pool for treatment cannot always be mimicked out of the water. In pool therapy you are able to treat non-inflammatory joint pain with support because no impact is going onto the joints in the same way you experience on firm ground. This is an incredible treatment option for many and we are proud to offer it.
