Pain Management Clinic Burnaby

Pain Management At Expert Physio

You may be experiencing pain as a result of an injury or from a medical condition. There are many different treatment options that our team of physiotherapists can provide for pain control that don’t rely on medications. Physiotherapy can be very effective in decreasing pain and improving quality of life.

Expert Physio’s Approach to Pain Relief

We must first determine if your pain is acute or chronic, meaning short or long-term. You probably don’t care which category your pain falls into; you just want some relief. However, determining your pain category will help our pain management team develop the most effective treatment plan for your needs.

Acute Pain

If you have recently experienced an injury and are feeling pain, then this is called acute pain. Acute pain can also occur with the onset of a disease or medical condition. It comes on suddenly and can vary in its intensity depending on the cause. If this is the type of pain you are experiencing, once we implement our treatment plan specifically designed for you, the pain should begin to diminish.

Chronic Pain

Perhaps you have been experiencing pain for several weeks. If your pain has been present for longer than twelve weeks, you are suffering from chronic pain. This is also a form of pain that we manage with very specific regimes.

How We May Deal With Your Pain

Acute Pain Management

If you have been recently injured, then you are most likely dealing with acute pain. It does take time to heal, and our physiotherapy services can help accelerate this process. You may not realize it, but your pain can actually slow down your healing process. This is why we make dealing with pain such a priority here at Expert Physio. We have a whole range of treatments that we can rely on to get results. Treatments may include education, manual therapy, appropriate exercises, and modalities for pain relief as indicated.

Your pain is unique because you are an individual. We develop our treatment plans based on your specific needs and goals.

Chronic Pain Management

Chronic pain is ongoing, and the treatments that we offer will be multifaceted and evidence-based. These treatments often differ from those that we used for acute pain.

Managing the Cost of Your Pain Management

We know that pain is ongoing and can require several treatments to organize and manage. We have focused on keeping our prices affordable. Also, if you have insurance, your treatment may be fully covered with minimal expense to you.

Choosing Expert Physio For Pain Management

Pain doesn’t occur on a schedule. For this reason, we have extended hours that are convenient for everyone. We also have experienced physiotherapists (pain specialists), and massage therapists, on staff, so you are not waiting weeks for your appointment.
