Chronic Pain Management - Rehab Options

Chronic pain is pain which persists beyond the point at which it can be treated throughtraditional means. For those patients who experience long-term discomfort, a more collaborative, therapeutic approach may be warranted.
At PinnacleHealth, our multidisciplinary team will work with you to help control or decrease pain, while improving daily function in a supportive and caring environment. As a secondary goal, our highly trained specialists strive to enable your return to work and social activities which may have been limited by your pain.


The Care Team

The Rehab Options medical director is a physiatrist trained in the treatment of chronic pain conditions. In addition, our multidisciplinary team of professionals covers specialties which include psychology, physical therapy, vocational counseling and biofeedback. This team works together on your behalf to address the many issues related to chronic pain. Both full day and part time treatment plans are available.


Evaluations

Upon coming to our Rehab Options clinic, you will receive a comprehensive evaluation by a pain management psychologist and doctoral level physical therapist to determine appropriateness for the program. Once entered into the program, you will be evaluated by the medical director, who will consult with your referring physician while you are in the program.You will also be evaluated and treated by our biofeedback therapist who will help you to learn relaxation and pain management skills.
 

Treatment

Rehab Options helps you to self-manage pain while increasing physical activity. You will learn coping, stress management and relaxation techniques while you improve physically through exercise and education.
