The first type of pain many of us have experienced is an acute type of pain. This is typically sudden and has the potential to go away and improved over time. The typical type of acute pain may include;
- Broken bones,
- Cuts & burns etc.
With many of these acute pains may not always need treatment – things heal over time pending the extensiveness of your injury. With an indication that the body is looking to heal the pain, your experience is a warning sign. A physical therapist is able to diagnose, provide care, and provide options for care.
When it comes to pain there may be major changes in your daily lifestyle. Using scientific evidence, the latest tools, and support of a team of Physical Therapists we help patients manage their pain without the use of medications such as opioids.
Let us discuss the second type of pain; chronic pain. This is generally more related to longer-term health issues that may be a factor of chronic inflammation, nerve sensitives, or traumatic injuries. Types of chronic pain factors include symptoms such as;
- Pain that lasts more than several months,

- Hypersensitivity such as walking or doing daily activities.
