Pain Management Q & A

When is physical therapy helpful?

Physical therapy is beneficial for a wide variety of conditions causing acute and chronic pain like fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic headaches, or neuropathy. Without intervention, these conditions can leave you nearly disabled physically and emotionally.

Korina Galaraga is passionate about alleviating your chronic pain so you can live a healthy and fulfilling life again.

How is chronic pain treated?

Numerous treatments are often beneficial for patients with chronic pain, including:

  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Massage
  • Manual therapy
  • Manipulation
  • Cold laser therapy
  • Exercise
  • Microcurrent stimulation

Within each of these categories are several treatment options that can be customized to meet your needs. Korina Galaraga will meet with you to discuss your signs and symptoms and choose the treatments that are most likely to change your daily pain levels.

Chronic pain creates a vicious cycle; you’re in pain, so you become inactive, and then that inactivity causes increased pain. For many patients, the result is enless pain. However, Korina Galaraga has helped hundreds of patients rebuild their strength and endurance, allowing them to live active, uninhibited lives once more. She can help you, too.

Is physical therapy painful?

Korina Galaraga ensures that your treatments are comfortable and effective. Certain treatments can cause some soreness for about 24 hours after your appointment, but such feelings dissipate quickly.

What are the benefits of seeing a physical therapist for pain management?

For one thing, physical therapy reduces pain by:

  • Strengthening your muscles
  • Improving your endurance
  • Creating stability in your joints
  • Improving flexibility throughout your body

Physical therapy is also safe and completely natural. There are no medications to take and no risk of adverse reaction or side effects.

Perhaps most importantly, though, physical therapy resolves the underlying problem rather than the symptom, so you can expect results that are both positive and long-term.
