Is chronic pain limiting your life?

Updated: Apr 18

If it is, you’re not alone. In 2021, the CDC had estimated that 50 million adults in the United States were experiencing chronic pain, of which about 17 million cases resulted in substantial limitations to activities of daily living. Chronic pain has become an epidemic with no clear indication of if or when the trends will change. The good news is that there’s hope! Physical therapy has been found to make positive impacts on pain, disability, quality of life, and has even been found to reduce depression linked to chronic pain.

Here at Kinesphere, it is our philosophy to approach the body from a holistic standpoint. We aim to find the root cause of pain versus just covering up the symptoms. With an increase of opioid prescriptions as a means of chronic pain relief, we advocate to provide non-pharmacological treatment options for our patients as we believe movement is medicine.

Our one-on-one physical therapy services allow our therapists to really focus on the needs of each patient. By doing thorough evaluations, every plan of care is carefully curated to improve weaknesses, imbalances, and to reduce stress and strain on the body to decrease pain. When appropriate, dry needling may also be used to help reduce trigger points that may be causing local as well as referred pain. Click here to read more about dry needling.

Along with physical interventions, our therapists aim to effectively communicate and educate patients. Pain education has been found to positively influence patient experiences and knowledge, thus improving their condition. By better understanding the body and the cause and effects of chronic pain, our patients are meticulously guided toward reducing pain and regaining the ability to perform normal daily activities.

If you or someone you know is dealing with chronic pain, or is interested in scheduling an appointment, just give us a call at 816-379-6899.
