Our physical therapists play an important role in managing chronic pain. We treat pain through:
1- Pilates-based strength exercises
2- Manual therapy
3- Exercises to improve posture
4- Body mechanics instruction
3- Patient education. We give self-management tools for reducing overall pain.
Pilates-based exercises have proven to:
1- Increase the quality of life
2- Decrease the chance of secondary illness
3- Increase bone and joint health
4- Stimulate the production of endorphins, which decrease pain.
