At Nevada Advanced Pain Specialists, we think that all patients can benefit from physical therapy, and this active approach can relieve your chronic pain.
This page is meant to start you on the basics which can be very helpful for overall function, but are not meant to replace any existing physical therapy. It is important to seek professional physical therapy if recommended by your doctor, or maintain your current routines with your physical therapist.
Every exercise here is meant to feel comfortable and none of these positions should ever hurt. If anything begins to hurt, stop doing the exercise immediately, and either modify the exercise or seek consultation with a licensed physical therapist to help guide you.
