Chronic Pain Relief Through Physical Therapy in Elkins, WV
Elkins Physical Therapy & Sports Injury Clinic
Chronic pain is pain that lasts for months – or even years. Affecting over 1/3 of the U.S. Population each year, chronic pain is a serious and often ignored part of our current public health crisis. Many point to the opiate epidemic, yet overlook what could be an important cause: widespread extreme, intractable chronic pain. Although surgical intervention, medications, and other methods of treatment may play an important part in the therapeutic treatment of chronic pain, it is important to ensure that the physical issues related to chronic pain are properly addressed to avoid further complications.

Chronic Pain Reduction for Illness, Injury & Disease
Whether you are dealing with migraines, lower back pain, or pain from a chronic illness, injury, or a disease process, physical therapy can help. Organized exercises and proven therapeutic strategies are developed based on your specific condition to help increase mobility, decrease pain and stiffness, and lead to a better life free of chronic pain.
Effective Drug-free Pain Relief
Our primary concern is pain reduction. We will also help you build muscle strength and flexibility. In many cases, pain relief, muscle strength, and improved physical functioning go hand-in-hand. Although there is no doubt that taking the first steps toward eliminating chronic pain can create various degrees of discomfort or “good” pain as the body learns to move again or find alternate ways of completing physical tasks, we work hard to make the transition as easy as possible for you.
Working toward achieving a better and more functional life through effective drug-free pain relief is a worthwhile goal for all of our patients. We look forward to helping you as you take the steps necessary to achieve your goal of long-term chronic pain relief.
