Physical Therapy Program for Pain
Physical Therapy addresses the musculoskeletal aspects of pain and decreased function. When physical therapy services are ordered by a physician, a licensed physical therapist will provide a thorough assessment and develop an individualized treatment program, incorporating manual therapy, pain-relieving modalities and gradual progression of an exercise program.
The goal of the Physical Therapy Program for Pain at St. Louis Behavioral Medicine Institute is to help patients work towards a improve their tolerance of daily activities. Our physical therapists are educated, experienced, and are very passionate about providing extraordinary physical therapy services to all clients. At the SLBMI, Clients receive one-on-one care from their physical therapist and they see the same physical therapist at each visit.
Our treatment programs are designed to meet the individual needs of each of our patients. At each visit we discuss pain status, review previously set strategies, and confront unresolved problems. We help patients integrate exercise and functional changes into a normal daily routine to decrease pain and improve the patient’s quality of life.
