Pain Management Therapies and You!
Pain is your body’s way of communicating to your brain that something is wrong. There is no such thing as normal pain. With proper diagnosis it is possible to explore all available options for pain management therapies, many of which are non-invasive, and drug-free.
Whether you have experienced chronic pain for years, or recently sustained an injury, your well-being is always worth looking into.
We treat patients for pain every day. Take a look at the categories below to see what treatments we offer that may benefit you.
Your feet are structural marvels. Each foot is made up of 26 bones, 33 joints, and lots and lots of muscles, tendons, and ligaments. None of which you think about until just one of them is causing you pain. A sore foot not only puts a hitch in your step and restricts your physical activity, but that hitch can lead to a myriad of other problems like back pain and muscle cramps brought on by the change in how you walk to avoid putting pressure on your foot.
Types of Pain: Foot pain, heel pain, gout, callus, corns, warts, ingrown toenails
