Pain Rehabilitation: Finding Relief through Physical Therapy & Behavioral Counseling
Physical ability and emotional health are commonly impacted in a negative way when dealing with an injury or chronic pain condition, and, for this reason, the physicians at Pain Modulation Associates work with a strong, developed network of physical and behavioral therapists to promote healing and relief from a variety of pain conditions.
Pain rehabilitation restores a patient’s physical and emotional health, whether applied as part of the custom pain management plan or stand alone treatment. Please see below to learn more about what rehabilitation programs are available to you as a patient of Pain Modulation Associates - a practice proudly servicing Boston's North Shore and Cape Ann regions.
Patients recovering from an injury or surgery or coping with a chronic pain condition
often experience a decrease in range in motion, muscle strength and flexibility, as
well as a decline in posture because of their discomfort. To promote proper healing,
reduce pain, and improve physical abilities, our pain management specialists work in
conjunction with physical therapists to develop customized rehabilitation programs
designed around the unique needs of our patients. Depending upon the acute or
chronic pain condition, our pain management centers and our referred network of
rehabilitation specialists may deploy manual (therapeutic massage) rehabilitation
techniques, physical movement, as well as exercise to improve a patient’s overall
strength, flexibility, mobility, and pain level.
To help patients cope with severe or debilitating discomfort, Pain Modulation
Associates extend behavioral counseling as part of our comprehensive
interdisciplinary pain management service offering. Through this rehabilitation
program, patients learn mind/body techniques to reduce stress and the impact of
pain as well as behavioral modifications to live a life with reduced discomfort.
In order to provide our patients with a level of care that is appropriate for each pain condition, our pain management physicians and network of rehabilitation specialists continuously work together to create a unique plan tailored to each case to best address the condition. For some patients, this may include a multidisciplinary approach, including pharmacologic pain management, physical or emotional rehabilitation programs, or other pain management techniques, while others may seek relief through a stand alone physical or behavioral rehabilitation program. Speak with your primary care physician today to determine if a comprehensive pain rehabilitation program is right for you.
