Pain Management and Rehabilitation Services
If you do not manage your pain it will greatly hinder the healing process. Pain has a negative effect on both the emotional and the physical well-being. In fact, many physical conditions are a secondary result of pain originating in another area of the body. Dr. Howard Liss provides pain management and rehabilitation services which aim to identify the source of pain and provide relief.
Ice and heat therapy used in an effective well-thought-out manner can often be all that is needed to reduce pain and inflammation. Exercise is another useful tool for managing pain and promoting rehabilitation. Other treatments such as ultrasound and electrical stimulation will provide pain relief to allow patients a better range of movement during rehabilitative treatments. When your treatment is complete you will have a better understanding of how to stay on the path of healing and wellness.
