Pain Management

Pain Management at Crest

Pain management is not only about treating pain, but also finding and treating the source of inflammation. At Crest, your physical therapist will create a customized treatment plan for your condition, which may include physical therapy exercises for shoulder pain or lower back pain.

 Physical Therapy is an effective method for the management of most non-cancer-related pain complaints. Crest Physical Therapy uses a hands-on approach to reduce pain and improve movement by helping to restore blood and nerve flow.
