Walt Fritz, PT and the Pain Relief Center

The Pain Relief Center is unlike any clinic in Western New York. We provide comprehensive individualized treatment for the relief of pain and the return to a fully functional lifestyle. Utilizing a method called Myofascial Release we are able to address problems that have not responded to previous surgeries, therapies, and medications, bringing about positive and lasting changes. While we can effectively help people who have unsuccessfully tried other interventions, those who are seeking a fresh approach to a new problem will also find success. “Pain Relief” is a rather narrow term when it comes to describing the work that we do, as not all clients come as a result of pain. Many are simply looking to regain a quality of life that they are missing.

Certain insurances are accepted (Aetna and Medicare) and direct submission to Excellus/BCBS for out-of-network treatment is available. Call or email for information or an appointment or simply click the “Book Now” button on the right hand side of this page.
