Choose Physical Therapy for Safe Pain Management

It is possible to combat pain with physical therapy.

Physical therapy is a safe and effective alternative to pain medication. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends nondrug approaches such as physical therapy over long-term or high-dosage use of addictive prescription painkillers.

Effective physical therapy can help patients recover from an injury, illness or disease and return to daily activities.
