Living with a pain condition can have such a huge impact on your life. If the pain is particularly bad, you may find that simple everyday tasks become impossible and you are unable to live the life that you want to. Socializing with friends and family becomes very difficult if you are in pain and you don’t want to be out of the house for too long. Eventually, you may find that you start to withdraw and isolate yourself.
It’s very common for people with pain conditions to have mental health issues like depression as well, so it’s vital that you find ways to manage that pain. The most obvious way to deal with constant pain is to take painkillers. But strong painkillers have a lot of side effects, like drowsiness, which makes it equally as hard to live a full life. A lot of people that suffer from constant pain find themselves stuck because they don’t want to take painkillers but their pain is ruining their life.
The good news is, there is another way. Here at Med Center Therapy, we help people to overcome their pain using a combination of physical and aquatic therapy, without the need for any medication at all. We also do not use any surgical procedures which could carry risks and have long healing periods. With our help, you can get your life back and banish pain for good.
At Med Center Therapy, we offer a wide range of different treatments. These are some of the ways that we can help you:
Cervical And Spinal Decompression
Back and neck pain are so common these days, especially in people that work at a desk. In fact, it is estimated that 30% of all US citizens are affected by back and neck pain at any one time. Poor posture and sitting down all day can lead to issues in the back and neck and it can be very painful. Our physical therapy programs, particularly cervical and spinal decompression, can help to deal with that pain.
Cervical decompression is a treatment that involves applying traction to the spine to increase the space between the vertebrae. This will reduce pressure on the vertebrae, help to realign any discs that have moved out of place, and align joints for increased mobility. This physical therapy treatment will deal with the root cause of your back pain so you no longer have to live with it.
If you find that your balance is getting worse and you suffer from vertigo or regular falls, it is likely that you have a problem with your vestibular system in the inner ear. Through a series of aquatic therapy treatments, we can identify the source of the problem and remedy it, so you can continue life as normal.
Our aquatic therapy services are great for helping you to improve your balance, but there are a lot of other benefits as well. Our expert physical therapy team will assess your issues, whether that be balance, pain, range of motion, or a combination of problems. Then, they will come up with a unique treatment program of aquatic therapy that will help you to overcome these issues. All of our therapists will be in the water with you, supporting you and guiding you through your physical therapy.
We can also help you to create an aquatic therapy program to follow at home, so you can manage any conditions that you have long term. This may also include some physical therapy on land if necessary.
We understand that you may be used to taking medications for your pain conditions, and the idea of physical therapy or aquatic therapy may seem strange and unfamiliar. There are some people that do not think that it will work for them until they try it, and then they are astounded by the results.
