Millions of Americans suffer from chronic and acute pain each year, leading to emotional illnesses such as anxiety, depression, and stress, affecting all aspects of life. As the current system for treating pain fails to provide relief for patients, it is time for a revolution in the science of pain management. At Ramos Center, our primary focus is on promoting overall health and providing patients with top-quality care and alternative treatments that alleviate pain at its source. Pain & Balance Physical Therapy is just one of the many treatments offered that has been proven to get patients back on their feet.

What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy is a form of treatment that utilizes body movement and controlled exercise to relieve pain and heal bodily ailments. Physical therapists develop treatment plans to help patients regain mobility and return to their normal routines while also addressing the physiological and psychological effects of pain and injuries.

3 Reasons to Invest in Physical Therapy

Physical therapy has been tested and proven to help eliminate pain, making it an essential part of pain treatment for three primary reasons:

  1. Get off Prescription Painkillers

Prescription pill-related deaths are a significant concern in the US, with thousands of people dying each year. The over-prescription of painkillers has contributed to the opioid epidemic, which is highly addictive and accompanied by a long list of side effects, including nausea, constipation, irritability, strong physical dependence, and respiratory depression. Physical therapy promotes overall healing rather than masking pain, freeing patients from medication and its side effects.

  1. Avoid Unneeded Surgery

Approximately 20% of surgeries could be avoided by starting physical therapy, allowing the body to heal on its own. Nearly 50% of people who undergo surgery will require physical therapy afterward. Early investment in physical therapy may help avoid surgical intervention later on.

  1. Lower Overall Healthcare Costs

Physical therapy reduces the use of painkillers and surgeries, helping patients regain their physical health and live life to the fullest. With reduced need for medication and costly procedures, patients can achieve a sense of wellness and live life in the healthiest way possible.

Many individuals believe that returning to physical health is impossible after an injury. At Ramos Center, our mission is to prove this is not the case. Our Pain & Balance patients demonstrate that regaining mobility, ridding oneself of pain, and fully recovering after an injury is possible.
