Fibromyalgia and Pain Management

Providing Treatment for Chronic Pain

Chronic pain can be debilitating, preventing you from being able to do everyday tasks. Horizon Rehab’s goal is to relieve your pain to help you get back to your living your everyday life in the way you are used to. Using a combination of posture realignment, stretching and trigger point release in conjunction with fitness programs and education efforts, Horizon Rehab can effectively treat fibromyalgia and chronic pain to help you.

Achy to Active Program

One of Horizon Rehab’s most successful programs, the “Achy to Active” program helps patients with fibromyalgia effectively manage the chronic pain in their muscles, joints, and skin. Using comprehensive management, physical conditioning and fatigue management treatment models, this 6- to 8-week program gradually increases your aerobic endurance, educates you on a proper diet, manages fatigue and provides exercises to improve your general level of strength.

Manual Therapy

Using joint and soft tissue mobilization techniques, your physical therapist gradually helps increase your mobility while reducing pain. By incorporating tested movements to ensure best results, manual therapy helps patients regain function that has been lost to chronic pain.

Electrotherapy Pain Relief Devices

Electrotherapy can help relieve and manage chronic pain. This kind of pain is usually the result of an accident or other injury, perhaps to the lower back or a joint in the hand or knee. If it lasts long enough, the pain itself becomes a disease. The most common forms of chronic pain are back pain, and arthritis. Chronic pain is often treated with over-the-counter painkillers and prescription drugs. These drugs may have unwanted side effects and can be very expensive. In contrast, an electrotherapy pain relief device provides drug-free relief for the pain of arthritis, back pain, sciatica and many other kinds of chronic pain at a very affordable cost. Electrotherapy comes in a variety of forms (TENS. IFC, NMES, MENS) and the physical therapists at Horizon Rehabilitation Centers will evaluate you to determine which type of electrotherapy will best address your symptoms.
