Pain Medicine Management
Medications can help treat pain and allow patients to regain some of their physical function. At Heritage Valley Kennedy Pain Center our board-certified physicians are highly versed in the newest medications available on the market with hope to avoid the need for high dose addictive opioid medications.
Physical Therapy, Exercise and Alternative Treatment Pain Programs
A key part of a multi-disciplinary approach to pain management involves physical therapy to aid in strengthening and reconditioning of the injury. Physical therapists are experts at treating movement and neuro-musculoskeletal disorders. Pain often accompanies a movement disorder, and physical therapists can help correct the disorder and relieve the pain.
Our physicians may also recommend further alternative treatment strategies including Aqua Therapy, Chiropractic care, Massage Therapy, Acupuncture, and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy with the goal of relieving your suffering from pain with a natural, drug-free approach.
