What is treatment like at the Pain Relief Center?

Your first session begins with a complete history gathering. We will do a head to toe evaluation, as many problems are not isolated to the area where pain is felt. We will work to get to the true cause of the pain. All first sessions include actual treatment, so you will get the chance to experience what make myofascial release/physical therapy at the Pain Relief Center unique.

Traditional physical therapy stresses a “weakness” model for pain treatment, where you are given specific strengthening exercises. The theory behind this is that if you are better able to support yourself, the pain will diminish. Physical therapy at the Pain Relief Center is very different, as we see pain often caused by excessive tightness within the body, creating pressure on pain sensitive structures. The goal of treatment is to reduce or eliminate this tightness, allowing you to move freely, without pain.

You will need a doctor’s prescription prior to your first appointment at the Pain Relief Center. Scheduling an appointment is now even easier; click on the “Book Now” link on the right hand side of this page, or call us at 585-244-6180.

Here is a short video that will give you an idea of what a Myofascial Release session may look like.
