Therapy for pain conditions

Discover how physical therapy can help break the pain spiral
Why choose Prevea physical or occupational therapy for your pain conditions?

Physical and occupational therapy plays a vital role in helping patients manage and overcome pain issues. Physical therapists certified in therapeutic pain management can help patients understand the underlying cause of their pain and create individualized treatment plans based on the patient’s goals and expectations. 

The chronic pain treatment at Prevea uses a variety of evidence-guided treatments. The length of the program is determined by the individual’s needs and will be discussed at the first appointment. Most insurance programs will cover this type of physical rehabilitation. 

Cash pay is available

We understand that in some situations, it may be less expensive to pay cash for therapy than to go through your insurance provider. And in most cases, no referral is needed. 

No referral needed

Direct access without a referral or prescription to physical or occupational therapy provides you with immediate access to start your treatment without delay. 

Your path to healing

At the first appointment, a thorough examination will be performed. This will consist of evaluation of your muscles, nerves and overall movement patterns. We will discuss your current thoughts on pain and scientific research regarding pain science. Together, based on our findings, we will create a specific plan for you. 

Key services

Pain education

To help get rid of the pain, you first need to know why you hurt. We will provide education describing the neurobiology and neurophysiology of pain in a simple, easy way to understand. We dispel some common pain myths and work toward reducing the fear of pain. 

Aerobic exercise

Getting moving at a comfortable level is important. This form of exercise will naturally release chemicals in your body to reduce pain and improve your stress. You will start slow and gradually pace yourself to do more with less pain. 

Manual therapy

The power of touch is real. Using a hands-on approach, we can calm the nervous system through various techniques

Relaxation techniques

Calming the mind and body is important. Your thoughts and emotions play a role in pain. By utilizing breathing strategies and mindfulness meditation, you can help quiet your mind and body to reduce pain and stress. 

Nerve mobilization

Your nervous system acts as your body’s alarm system, warning you of danger. By moving your nerves, you will increase blood flow and oxygen around them. This calms the nerves and makes them less sensitive. 

Strengthening and stretching

Whether you want to improve your ability to get up from a chair or do yard work, a specific exercise program needs to be developed to help you accomplish those goals. We use a paced and graded approach to strength training. A little at a time goes a long way.
