Portland is an active and growing community. With the rising population, we are seeing more accidents due to sports injuries. Also, with more drivers on the road, there is a greater risk for injuries due to car accidents. Both types are incidents that can impact any number of Portland residents at any age.
Whether you’ve been involved in a car accident or suffered an injury from a sport, the resulting pain can be prolonged. Pain is your body’s normal reaction to an injury or illness. It should not be ignored because it is your body’s way of signaling that something is wrong. When pain lasts for 3 to 6 months or more, it is called chronic pain. Daily pain can take a toll on your emotional and physical health. With a proper plan and a good physical therapist, you can encourage healing and reduce pain.
PHYSICAL THERAPY for CHRONIC PAIN
Chronic pain from sports injuries or car accidents can be treated through physical therapy, assisting most individuals in achieving a more manageable level of pain and thus, a better quality of life.
At Renew Physical Therapy in Portland, we are frequently involved in a multidisciplinary approach with pain management clinics in Portland who concurrently use other forms of conservative interventions such as oral medication, injection procedures of medication or prolotherapy, counseling, radiofrequency ablation, spinal electrical stimulator devices, acupuncture, etc. We realize that physical therapy is not always the answer in eliminating one’s physical pain, especially in cases of chronic pain that has been present for many years, but we are confident that Renew Physical Therapy in Portland is a great place to start.
