Chiropractic Care and Physiotherapy in Oshawa: Tackling Chronic Pain

Unlike other primary care professionals, physiotherapists and chiropractors consider pain as a disease in itself, rather than just a symptom. This approach is quite insightful because chronic pain doesn’t always have an obvious cause. An old wound or a previous skin infection, for instance, is just as likely to cause chronic pain as fibromyalgia, arthritis, and multiple sclerosis.

Depending on the severity of the pain, a pain management and rehabilitation expert can develop a personalized exercise program to improve strength, recommend hot and cold packs to reduce swelling, or even prescribing certain medications. Quality physiotherapy in Oshawa may even involve alternative treatments like massage therapy and acupuncture. These are typically administered only after a thorough physical exam has been conducted.
