Our Chronic Pain Management Services
Dry needling is a process of treating muscle tissue and pain/impairments by using “dry needles.” Dry needles, as the name suggests, don’t have any serum or fluid that they inject. Rather, the PT will use these needles to manipulate trigger points in the muscle and restore motion and/or reduce pain. Dry needling is fantastic as a standalone practice or as part of a larger physical therapy plan. To learn more about dry needling, visit our page dedicated to the service here.
Individualized exercise programs
Often, chronic pain can be addressed by creating a specific exercise regimen. This is because chronic pain can sometimes be the result of muscular imbalances or neglect, which can affect movement patterns across the body. Compounded over years, people can experience nagging pain from these issues.
When you come to us for an evaluation, we will help you discover which muscles may need to be addressed and craft targeted exercises to solve chronic pain at the source.
Finally, we also offer manual physical therapy to help patients. Manual physical therapy utilizes a PT’s hands to manipulate joints and muscle tissue to relieve tension and address pain. Manual therapy is a practice that has existed as long as humans, and we employ time-tested and peer-reviewed techniques to alleviate pain and discomfort.
What Causes Chronic Pain
Chronic pain is generally described as pain in a specific area that persists for three months or more. There are hundreds of different types of chronic pain, with dozens of causes. Even for individuals with similar symptoms, the causes could be quite different.
However, below are a few common causes of chronic pain:
- Poor posture
- Improper exercise/movement
- Traumatic injury
- Chronic medical conditions
- Diseases like arthritis, fibromyalgia, etc.
- Congenital conditions
- A combination of above or unstated/unknown factors
For some, the source of their chronic pain can be found relatively easily and be treated. For others, though, the source of their pain can be complex and elusive. Through years of experience, our team has become experts in dealing with chronic pain, whether simple or complex.

Some of the most common types of chronic pain that we work with includes:
- Post-surgical pain
