There are different forms of physical therapy. The therapist may focus on decreasing pain with passive physical therapy (modalities). These are considered passive therapies because they are done to the patient. Examples of modalities include:
After an episode of pain has lasted between two and six weeks, or if there are frequent recurrences of pain, it is reasonable to consider exercises and physical therapy for treatment. (Some specialists consider exercise and physical therapy sooner, particularly, if the pain is severe.) In general, the goal of combining exercises and physical therapy is to decrease pain and increase function. Our therapist also provides education on a maintenance program and how to prevent further recurrences.
We use medical massage and associated physical therapies as an invaluable tool to help pain sufferers achieve the much-needed relaxation in today’s ever stressful environment.
Manual Medical Massage in conjunction with medications, injections and physical therapy provides a perfect recipe to treat pain. Our clinicians believe in this philosophy and recommend a manual medical massage on a regular basis to alleviate pain related symptoms.
All of this is done under the expert guidance and supervision of Dr. Nisha Jain, M.D. and her team of Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, and Physical and Massage Therapists. She is a Board Certified Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Physician.
Dr. Jain has deep understanding in this area and has trained her staff on proprietary techniques, which, when provided in a massage environment, can be effective in treating the root cause of pain, get the blood flow to various parts of the body, help develop muscular strength, endurance, joint stability, neuromuscular control, mobility, coordination and overall wellness.
Depending on your specific situation, Dr. Jain or one of her team members may make it a part of your specific treatment plan.
The proprietary massage procedures are proven to provide effective and immediate results, however, results and effectiveness of massage therapy may differ for some individuals due to various conditions.
Our Massage Therapists are well versed in various massage therapy techniques and pain management therapies and have deep knowledge of various nutritional supplements which can help with overall wellness including treatment of pain.

Frequent Manual massage therapy can help alleviate root cause of your pain in a big way. This can affect your overall well-being, your energy level as well as help you with aging.
Talk to your physician about how frequently you should consider undergoing the massage therapy. Our front desk staff can help set you up on the recurring schedule.
The answer is most likely “Yes”. If you are a candidate for Physical Therapy, you may also be a candidate for Manual Massage Therapy and the specific procedure can be included as a part of your individual treatment plan.
