While medicine can be helpful to temporarily relieve pain, it won’t treat the actually cause of the pain. We encourage our patients to find both acute and chronic pain relief by using natural, relief treatment plans. Our doctors utilize pain management techniques like the Graston technique and exercise therapy to enhance your health. At Advanced Pain Management and Rehab in Williamsport, our care team finds the root of the problem and treat the pain with non-invasive means.
Chiropractic adjustment is one form of treatment that consists of our chiropractor moving the vertebrae in the spine gently. Our chiropractor realigns them, so they're in line with the discs. This alleviates pressure on the surrounding nerves and soft tissue. We use the Graston technique, which is an approach that consists of instruments that enhance the procedure. This may help break up scar tissue, which is especially beneficial if you have a strained muscle or another soft tissue injury. Moreover, we specialize in newer techniques that enhance the procedure.
We use chiropractic care to treat a variety of conditions. For instance, we help patients who have sciatica, which is nerve-related pain that affects the back and legs. Our chiropractors may perform an alignment if you have an injury to a disc, such as a bulging or herniated disc. We use chiropractic adjustments on patients who have degenerative disc disease, a condition that may stem from age. It's also beneficial for people who have spinal stenosis or whiplash.

Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our licensed therapists provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health. While chiropractic adjustments are beneficial for both acute and chronic pain relief, we often combine them with exercise therapy to further enhance the relief and recovery process. We guide you through a series of exercises that stretch your spine. Exercise therapy builds muscle and enhances flexibility. These exercises start off slow so that you don't feel a great deal of pain at first. As you recover, we enhance the difficulty to further help your healing process. We customize your treatment process to ensure that you see optimal results. While we're aiding you during your recovery process, we're also are helping you prevent future injuries.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you?
